Friday repeats

Happy Friday and happy first day of April!! 2016 is officially one third over and I can't hardly believe it. That's just crazy talk to me! BUT! With April comes baseball, so starting on Sunday, I have something to watch on TV again until October! Ha! No but seriously, I cannot wait! Anyhoo! For today's post, I pulled together some of my most recent selfies as well as some previous blog photos so you can see how I styled the same piece a slightly different way. Let's get started!

Banana Republic ruff detail sweater and shorts

I was unsure of this sweater when I first got it - I didn't know if the ruffle detail was going to be unflattering or not, but the more I see it and wear it, the more I love it. It really is a great transition piece into spring!

Halogen Floral sweater and white chinosHalogen floral sweater and red lace up Vince Camuto pumps

Similar colors as the previous sweater, just a different print! This floral sweater is one of my most favorite Nordstrom Anniversary sale purchases ever! It's lasted a couple of years now and still as good as new. And it's even more lightweight than the previous sweater, so I can still wear it when it's 90 degrees outside.

The pieces: Denim jacket plus nude booties | Left: Original post here
Right- Jacket: JCrew Factory | Top: Gap | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Pants: Express | Booties: Sam Edelman

These are slightly different denim jackets, but I wanted to post them together anyway because I'm wearing the same nude booties in both outfits. I seriously could not live without a denim jacket in my collection. Also, I forgot how much I loved these booties. I found myself not wearing my flat boots and booties as much this season. I'm not sure why. But I'm glad I dusted these off because they are great when I want my booties to just disappear.

Express oversized plaid shirt and white pumpsExpress oversized plaid shirt and Naya Fisher boot
The piece: Grey and pink plaid topLeft: Original post here
Right- Button up: ExpressTee: Express | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Jeans: ExpressBoots: Naya (other colors here)

So this is basically the exact same outfit. I just went with darker, non-destroyed jeans for work, and ditched the pumps for the boots. I went ahead and did a white tee instead of the pink one, for no real reason other than I just didn't feel like wearing the pink one! These plaid tops are a great substitute for a lightweight jacket.

This may be the last voluminous scarf you see me wearing on the blog for awhile! I love the tapestry look of this one and how surprisingly versatile it is with other colors!

  5. Love this post! So fun to see the different options for styling the same piece. And even though you think the two plaid shirt outfits are "the same" I think they are visually quite different! It was nice knowing you in the off season! haha.

  6. YES! I can't wait for Sunday! I've been saying to my husband for months - I can't wait for baseball to start again so we have something to watch on TV. It's sure to be an interesting season in the NL Central for sure! Go Bucs! ;)

  7. That purple scarf you're waiting in the last two photos is my favourite piece! I'm just waiting for scarf weather here. While it's autumn it's still so hot!
