It’s safe to say that it has been absolutely frigid here in Chicago this past week. I don’t know about y’all, but when it is cold- I lack motivation to get dressed & hate everything in my closet. As I was tossing things out to try & sell/donate- I decided to take a damn breather. By doing this, I found two pieces that I originally wanted gone- & made them work! & with those old pieces, I added a NEW piece to amp it all up. Let’s get to lookin’:




& here we have it. For some odd reason I wanted to get rid of this sweater! Thank god I came to my senses because it is a total essential! It’s comfy, versatile, & who can say no to those zippers?! I then took this old blouse that had been chillin’ in my closet for years, & created a layer underneath the sweater. I love how the collar adds a preppy look & of course, the abstract pattern.

And now, on to the NEW item to amp up the old. These SHINYMIX earrings! These ear crawlers are the perfect way to amp up an outfit! They are simple enough to not bother you while in your ear & glitz enough to add that much needed pizazz. Plus, they’re rose gold-which pretty much can go with any outfit! Ear crawlers are all the rage right now, and SHINYMIX has multiple crawlers for all you jewelry lovers. Based in NYC, this jewelry company satisfies all of my accessory cravings.

& there you have it. What lesson did we learn here? To give your closet a chance. There are going to be days when you’re sick of everything & want an update. But really stop yourself & think, maybe it’s just because you need to style certain pieces differently! Hold on to your closet essentials & then get something new & exciting (like these earrings) to amp them up! I did it, so you totally can, too! (:
