A Fresh New Look!

A while back, my good friend Kristen asked me to go shopping with her to help her find some new items to add to her closet. She's a successful nurse and devotes so much time to her career that she hasn't had much time the last few years to step out of her scrubs and give herself a fresh new look. Her wardrobe was a little dated and needed a facelift. Our mission was to find her pieces that were trendy, flattering, fit her personality and of course, low cost. We ended up finding some great new additions for her closet, all of which fit her style, and she can use them to make endless outfits through all four seasons. Our finds included some staple items and some vibrant pops of color.



With these new items and some of the pieces she already owned, I put together several outfits and styled her with a few of my favorite pieces we found. My goal was to put together several looks, showing her just how much she can do when mixing and matching just a few of her new tops with her new bottoms. She now has an amazing closet with SO many cute options and just a stinkin' adorable new look. Here are some of the outfits I put together for her..and seriously, how fashionable and gorgeous does she look in all her new finds!? I'm kind of obsessed and kind of wishing that this was my own closet.

With her new emerald green pants, I put a nude, sheer lace top (LOVING all things lace these days) with a fun nude blazer, layered gold necklaces and some matching nude pumps.

Then we did a little black and white mixing with the green. Love the polka dot printed top, it literally goes with anything!

Next we did some color blocking. I love mixing vibrant, complimentary colors like these and they're so fun to wear! Not to mention they all look so amazing on Kristen! This might be one of my favorite looks I put together. So fun.

With her super cute, super flattering new wide-legged jeans, I paired a comfy white tank, chic leather jacket and layers of gold and turquoise necklaces for a small pop of color. She looks SO cute and effortless and I love the whole look!

For a softer look, we paired her new blush pink silk top and some girly accessories for a preppy, clean, spring outfit! Love how dainty and girly she looks! I added a light cardigan for some color contrast, as well. Doesn't the denim make her legs look so long and slim!? She's got some sky-high heels on her feet too. I'm obsessed.

We also paired this amazing plum-colored top with the same jeans and heels and threw on a printed scarf for some detail. Plum is SUCH a good color on anyone and it can be worn year-round! Pair it with some turquoise jewels for an amazing contrast of color!

With her new black skinnies, we put together a fun, flirty look for her to wear out at night, and a comfy, casual jet-setting daytime look.

Second Look - Sweater: Nordstrom; Scarf: Old Navy; Jewelry: Modcloth.com; Boots: Steve Madden

And finally, excited about spring on its way, I put together a fun daytime spring look for her! This is my absolute favorite. It was a little more of my style and a little out of her comfort zone, but after seeing it all together she loved it! It's fun to branch out and try something new sometimes. I love the nautical stripes with the floral scarf and the denim shorts with the combat boots...it's just all so stinkin' cute. She looks amazing! This makes me so ready for warm weather!

 We put together so many cute looks for her with just a few items that we mixed and matched. She'll have endless outfits and continue looking adorable and trendy each time she gets dressed! It's amazing what you can do with just a few fresh new pieces and experimenting with them for many different styles and looks! Play around in your closet or if you're in need of a wardrobe re-vamp then treat yourself to a few new items that will give you a fresh new look!
