Mid Week Neutrals

Well, we have made it to mid-week and today is suppose to be absolutely beautiful in Kansas City! 70 degrees in January, NO WAY right!?! 
When the temps go up in the afternoon I have to layer my looks to accommodate. I've been loving this dark rose colored blazer lately. It's the perfect way to look polished and add some girly color to my neutral outfit. 

 This is the time of year it gets kind of hard for me to get inspired to get dressed in the morning. I want to dress for  spring, but it's not quite spring yet, and I'm getting kind of tired of my winter clothes. I have to really work at keeping my closet organized and mixing in some pieces I don't often wear. It can be a challenge, but all the more reason to know what you have and keep your clothes organized by style.

Neutrals go from season to season and are the easiest prints and colors to transition. These colors should build the base of your wardrobe and be where you spend the bulk of your clothing budget. Invest in neutral clothes that will last a long time and are pieces that have a "timeless" quality to them. Your most expensive clothes should always be in a neutral color to ensure you get the most for your money. Think about the "cost per wear" when you are investing in any piece of your wardrobe but especially your neutrals, it will help you make better buying decisions. 

This leopard shirt I am wearing has been in my wardrobe for over 6 years! I'm pretty sure I bought it when I was working at Maurices in college! It's just one of those shirts that is great for layering and has always been a go-to. Leopard is a fabulous neutral print because it is trendy and adds pattern to an otherwise basic look. If you have a somewhat neutral outfit like I have here, add a chic blazer or a pop of color with your accessories!

Hopefully these tips will help you get through this tough time in between fashion seasons! If you have any questions about transitioning your wardrobe for spring let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you!
