When I first started my blog, I would occasionally offer a "fashion tip of the day" -- even though I had no audience. I haven't given any fashion tips lately. Part of me thinks that I am in no place to offer advice, while the other part thinks that any advice I could share is already common sense. (And who wants common sense advice like, "Blazers are a great way to polish any look!" and "Don't leave the house without pants on!"?)
Sometimes I neglect items because I don't know how to wear them. I got this pashmina in undergrad (maybe even high school) but only ever wore it one way: paired with a white polo and navy blue boyfriend cardigan. I haven't worn it since, except under a coat when taking the dogs out.
Given how cold it is these days, I knew I would want to be bundled up today. Boots, heavy sweater, and possibly a scarf. The last time I wore this cardigan, I paired it with my pink pashmina. I was so inspired, I copied myself.
Fashion Tip of the Day: If you're unsure about how to style a particular item, consider outfits you've worn in the past with similar items. A few minor changes can come off looking like an entirely new outfit!
