Mix it Up-Why Versatile Pieces are the Best

Top:  Victoria Beckham for Target // Belt:  Burberry // Skirt:  Forever 21 (old, similar here) // Sandals:  Famous Footwear

All of you know how I love to mix and match outfits because unfortunately for me, I’m not one of those rich bloggers who travels all the time and has a new outfit everyday without repeating ANYTHING.  I unfortunately cannot buy the trendy pieces that everyone else does that are over $100 for a pair of shoes that I’ll wear maybe once or twice.  Sometimes I will splurge but for the most part I like to purchase pieces that will be versatile.  When I see something in a store if it’s super trendy and on sale for a steal then I will purchase it, but if it’s full price 95% of the time I won’t buy it.  If a piece is versatile, I’m more willing to purchase it even at full price knowing that I’ll get a lot of use out of it.  That’s why for today’s outfit you’ve seen these pieces already.  

Hat:  Ralph Lauren (gifted, similar here) // Top:  Cavender's (similar here) // Skirt:  Forever 21 (old, similar here) // Shoes:  Stuart Weitzman (this is my splurge of the outfit) // Earrings:  Rocksbox

Tulle Skirt

The tulle skirt I have worn a few times and I wanted to show you different ways to style it.  You don’t have to be super girly to wear a tulle skirt, I mean of course this skirt reminds me of my ballerina days, but you can pair it with a fun tee and call it a day.  You can even be super girly and pair it with a ruffle top or anything pink.

Victoria Beckham for Target Top

Now, I’ve only worn this top on the blog twice but I love how it’s slightly cropped so wearing it with a higher waisted pant is perfect and I love the design on it along with the flared out sleeves.  This can be worn with pants, skirts, culottes, jeans, anything really.

Green Oversized Belt

I’ve been wearing this belt a very long time here on the blog.  It’s my favorite belt.  I have a few others, but this green one is always my go to.  It’s probably because I get so many compliments on it and it’s such a statement belt.  I’ve worn this belt with almost every outfit possible.  Adding belts is one of my favorite ways to spice up an outfit, and I also like it because I feel like it compliments any body shape by giving the illusion of a smaller waist that goes out into an hour glass curve.

Wedge Sandals

I love wedges because they’re perfect for me.  I can walk in heels but I feel as though I get more support from a wedge and with my knee and back it actually feels better in a wedge.  I love that these are a small wedge so it’s almost like you are wearing flats but not really.  I love the lace up as well because that’s trending right now, but I always loved it.  I feel as though it just gives the perfect attention to the shoe.
