A few weeks ago I challenged our readers to join me and the fabulous Instagram diva, Abby Strock (@mrsstrock), to a shop your closet challenge.  I am not going to lie…it’s been really tough not to shop, but I’ve enjoyed discovering new ways to wear some older pieces.

I’m 20 outfits in with only 10 left to go.  Here are a few looks so far.

Old Navy is a great retailer to find fun staples like both black and white sweaters below.  They may be a few seasons old, but there are currently some great items to add to your winter wardrobes.Edit by Lauren | lately... Edit by Lauren | lately...

I have LOVED my Anthropologie faux leather bomber jacket.  It’s amazing what a versatile piece it has become and how much it completes any outfit.Edit by Lauren | lately...

A graphic tee and jeans is the easiest way to pull together an effortless look.  Here is a similar field jacket like the one I’m wearing below from Old Navy.Edit by Lauren | lately...

Don’t forget those puffer vests either.  Layer them over a basic tee during these mild temperatures.Edit by Lauren | lately...

A classic trench coat is a wardrobe must have.  Dressed up or worn casual with jeans and a tee, this light weight jacket is a perfect outerwear piece for any occasion. Edit by Lauren | lately...

It’s not too late to get started.  Follow along with us at @jackiemewbourne and @mrsstrock.

Happy Remixing!

snake charmer

Neutral snakeskin prints are effortlessly stylish, classic and appropriate year-round. The Trista Dress by Elaine Turner is just that. It offers an understated chic look that can be worn throughout the seasons in multiple ways. I am obsessed with it!

winter blues

It’s about this time each winter that I start craving pops of color and bright, cheery patterns. This outfit was created out of that yearning. I have been on the hunt for a pastel-colored coat, and this one happens to be on sale for just over $50! {Isn’t it very vintage-Chanel looking?!}

Pink is a hot handbag color for early-spring and perfect for incorporating into your wardrobe now. How fun this clutch?!

Edit by Lauren | winter blues

And this floral blouse is one of my favorite purchases this season. I have been wearing it so many ways, and the pattern always makes me happy. It will carry easily into Spring, too.

Dresses are such an underplayed piece in a women’s wardrobe.  So many of us gals think that you can only wear it as is and then hang that baby up for the next occasion.  Did you know that dresses can be worn multiple ways?  Here are just a few simple options using a knit dress from The Loft.

Cocktail Time :: Who says a knit dress can’t be fancy.  Add some pretty bling, a metallic heel, and a fabulous clutch.  It’s not only simple, but comfortable too.

Edgy :: Faux leather + bomber jacket = rebel with a clue.  Add in unexpected pops of color like a turquoise statement necklace and burgundy colored heels.  Take this outfit out for a spin to the new “it” restaurant in town.

Five things I am currently loving, wearing, using and reading on repeat ::

Kate Spade planner. I have tried lots of different planners over the past few years. I am loving the the size, layout and look of this one. It’s easy to tote around whereever I go, and still provides plenty of space to write my agenda, to do’s and notes.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

The Zinnia Split Ring from the brand-new Stella & Dot Spring Collection. This ring is just gorgeous, and the colors blend with everything. And did I mention it’s under $40?!

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

 

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Starr. I am ob-sessed with this gloss. It smells like vanilla cupcakes, plumps your lips and adds amazing shine. This shade is pretty alone or layered over a deeper-hued lipstick.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

 

The Dolce Vita Haku Ankle Bootie. These are the booties I have been dreaming of! A little western and a little sassy, I’m wearing them with skinny jeans now and can’t wait to pair with sundresses come Spring.

Edit by Lauren | the friday five

Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons. I started reading this book over the holidays and it is rocking my world. A must-read for every woman who struggles with balance, anxiety over trying to be and do everything and wanting to live a life of meaning and significance.

The edit team does love a good plaid and if you follow us regularly, you most likely have seen several of our plaid loving outfits.  If you can’t get enough of plaid either, try a bolder option with a winter coat.

It’s a completer piece that does all the work and elevates the look of a basic outfit.  Feel free to add your own style with a pop of your favorite color in shoes or accessories.  It’s a fun and easy way to make a statement without trying too hard.

Some days, especially COLD ones, call for super comfy threads. The trending oversized cardigan is just that. Pair a cozy cardi over skinny jeans or leggings, add a scarf and/or long pendant necklace, and you look effortlessly pulled together while feeling completely comfortable.

This marled oversized cardigan from Nordstrom is so soft and cuddly, it literally feels like a bathrobe! {Here is a less expensive, almost identical version from Old Navy.}

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  The other day, I was just minding my own business, when I accidentally (on purpose) stumbled upon this top in Anthropologie.  I immediately began justifying it’s cost, because of the multiple ways I can wear it.

(Cost per wear = low-ish. #girlmath)

Since I’m all about rationalizing a purchase for myself helping a sister out, I made this handy little graphic.

You’re welcome.
