transitional style

If there's anything I like, it's clothing items that can work multiple ways. I love seeing people remix outfits  (Delightfully Tacky does a great job sharing them) and I've been thinking a lot about trying the 30 x 30 project-- where you pick 30 clothing items for a month.

But even 30 is a lot. I'm currently reading 7 by Jen Hatmaker, and I'm in a part of the book where she talks about her month of wearing just 7 items of clothing for a month, which she does, sharing her thoughts with amazing hilarity and candor.

Now I'm thinking a lot about what in my closet can be worn over and over. Take this sheer top for instance. This week, while it's 80 degrees in Seattle, it's perfect paired with shorts. In September, it'll layer well with jeans. The shorts? Not as versatile, but they were on sale and the husband really likes them.

I'm entering a contest hosted by Wallis to share transitional style-- two outfits from one item. You can vote for me, pretty please, here!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I am terrible about mixing and matching and wearing the same item differently... it's something that I absolutely need to work on. I tend to buy things in outfits and then I don't want to change those outfits up!

    P.S. Your hair is CUTE in this post.

  2. I love the mix of long sleeve with shorts!! Very unexpected but oh-so lovely!! xo

  3. I love this look. Olive green is my fave!

  4. This is cute, I need to mix things up more...


  5. You wear shorts and heels so well. It's a look I find so adorable, but I always feel a lil like a hooker when I try it. How do you do this????

  6. What a fab outfit!

    Thanks for linking up with Style Sessions!
