Tipsy Tuesday: The Most Powerful of the 10 Essentials

Tipsy Tuesday Time! What's the most POWERUL of all the Essentials? 

My Amazon Picks and Advice


My elevated Peach sweatshirt is still available - limited quantities though.

Click HERE to join my free #justgetdressed Facebook group and get tips and advice.

Now that you've heard my Amazon shopping lecture and tips, here's a preview of  some of my favorite finds that I've either read about and researched, or own myself.  

Click HERE to access the entire catalog of picks,  and bookmark it as I will update it frequently.

There are  five questions I recommend we  ask ourselves  before items from the Amazon box get put into our closet (or better yet, before we click "buy now":)

1. Do you LOVE it....I mean does it really resonate with you, or to quote Marie Kondo,, "does it spark joy?"

2. Do you have at a minimum of 3-4 ways to wear/style the item?  Think outside the box...dress it up, dress it down. 

3.  Are you sure you don't have anything just like this or similar in your closet?

4.  Would you really want to buy this item even before knowing the Amazon price on it? This is an important questions to ask...and it's the one I forgot in the video.  How often do we click "buy now" just because the price is so good...without enough thought??

5.  When you try it on, take a mirror selfie (I swear it's a better way to evaluate than just looking in the mirror).  Do you LOVE the way it makes you look and feel?

There you have it!  Just remember to buy with thought and  a plan, and eliminate the impulsive "buy now" clicking.  

And one last piece of advice...Take it from me, do not drink and Amazon shop. They do not mix 😉   

Cheers!

Jeans and a White Top

Ever since the early days of FlirtyFinds and B.Styled, my mantra has been, keep the foundation simple and then change it up with accessories and the Magic Third Piece.  It’s so simple, and I say it so much, but that’s because it’s SO true.  One of my first ever blog posts as B.Styled was when I went an entire week wearing jeans and a white top – every day.  No one noticed my xeroxed outfit and it was so easy to make it look completely different each day.  The hardest part was keeping the white top clean;)

So the next time you’re at loss for what to wear and are tempted to stay in your yoga pants, grab these pieces that you “should” have in your closet already:

Perfect for you Jeans + White Top + Leopard Belt (optional) + Interesting Necklace + Neutral Booties (in the spring/summer you can sub neutral sandals).

You could call it day at that point, but to add interest and warmth, and change the look, just add any of your Third Pieces:  cardigans, jackets, wraps, scarves, vests.  

Easy, right?   Here are 10 looks I came up with just grabbing things from my closet.  You can do the same!  Shop your closet first, but there are shopping links below as well.  

Now, my dearies…go #justgetdressed 😉 

Outift Formula: Blush and Olive/ Camo

Not too long ago, the idea of camo pants would have been a Nay for me.  But since hitting 50,  I’ve grown to really love the look (go figure).

I like them best with black, gray and white.  But blush and fuschia are great options too and add a feminine touch to the otherwise masculine pattern.

This same formula can be dressed up with heeled booties and a blazer or dressed down with slip-on sneaks or mules and a denim jacket.  No camo? No worries.  Olive pants can be worn the same way.

Today I wore my, go-to silver jewelry: long pendant necklace choker, knot hoops, and these two-tone bracelets:  Rhett cuff and Renegade Stretch Bracelet. 

What do you think of camo?  One of my clients from Alabama told me they have a lot of hunters near her who wear camo “for real” so she just can’t jump on this style.  Ha!  What do you think? Yea or nay?

Thanks for reading.  Now go #justgetdressed 😉

A Case for the Chambray Shirt

Google "Fall Wardrobe Essentials"  and chances are the  Chambray Shirt will appear on most lists.  I have my own catalog of B.Styled Essentials, and yes, the chambray shirt is on it.  The reason it makes the cut is that, like denim jeans, chambray is incredibly versatile and works with so many colors and fabrics.  I also think the light blue denim color (which I prefer over the darker versions) is flattering to most people. Finally, I'm a fan (as you'll see below) of the 'collar pop' that works so well with this shirt.

That said, I was having a conversation with a member of my Fall Style System Program and she was saying that she never really got on board the Chambray Shirt Train.  Some  find these shirts too masculine or bulky. And those with larger chests can have a hard time with button up shirts in general.  

And that's ok --  If it doesn't work for you, skip it!  Don't get too caught up with "must-haves" (unless it's neutral booties...those ARE a must have.  This pair is my personal pick...and bonus: they're waterproof!)

If you love the look of a chambray shirt, there are many ways to style it and it can be one of the most versatile items in your closet.

I  decided to make yesterday's outfit formula for the Fall Style System feature a chambray shirt and I took several outfit pictures to show various ways to style the classic JCrew version (currently 40% off with free ship from Nordstrom).  In my Essentials Catalog, I've included various styles including a more feminine pop-over version.  

What do you think?  Do you have a chambray shirt and consider it a must-have or are you skipping it? No judging here!  

These are some examples of Chambray Shirt  looks you can create from your closet. Don't feel like you need to "copy" the looks exactly!  Use your building blocks and basic essentials and have fun mixing and matching.  See below for shopping links, but chances are these wardrobe essentials, or something similar, are already in your closet!
