What to Wear??!! How I Got Dressed… (casual)

Yesterday we had a casual luncheon at a neighbor’s house to celebrate their son’s baptism. One of the ladies commented on my outfit and said she gets stuck wearing jeans and t-shirts. That’s exactly why I started getSNAZZY.com! She actually looked really cute in a pair of jeans and a black and white top. Add a “pop of color necklace” and she’d have a snazzy outfit!

Where to start?

1.       Color

2.       Statement Piece

3.       Inspiration Picture

I usually pick my outfits by color. I start with that section of my closet and go from there. Sometimes I pick out an accessory and build around it. Lately I’ve been doing more “fashion research” I save pictures that I like in a folder on my computer called “style inspiration.” I’ve tried bookmarking whole websites, but I’ve found that it works better if I save the pictures I like best so I can look at them quickly. I save the bookmark too. I use the camera on my phone to take pictures of storefront mannequins or random people on the street (if I can be stealthy enough!)

Another thing that has helped me “be snazzy” is building outfits on Sunday night.

Outfit building blocks:

1.       Top

2.       Bottom

3.       Accessories

4.       Shoes

I spend a little extra time trying on complete outfits to find 4 things to wear that week. The other 3 days I pick out whatever I am in the mood to wear. This saves a lot of headache in the mornings (which are crazy enough getting a 1 year old ready and working part time)

How I got dressed a few weeks ago….

Pick 1 item first- Start with a color, accessory, or top or bottoms you want to wear. One step at a time. I was feeling like wearing maroon so I was “shopping” in my closet and found this sweater vest that I hadn’t worn before.

Sunday Night Prep

1. Top 2. Bottom 3. Accessories 4. Shoes

I added a white button down, jeans, maroon beaded necklace and boots. Hang everything together and take a pic too.

Ready to Wear!

Here is the outfit- grocery shopping. I had already picked everything out, so I just put it on in the morning and I was ready! getSNAZZY.com

When in doubt I add a jacket or cardigan and a scarf or statement necklace. Shoes can also do the trick to pull together an outfit.

How do you build your outfits? Do you plan or just throw something together?
