How to Create a Head to Toe Outfit | Designing From My Closet

When shopping, we typically select items one at a time.  Whether online or in store, each individual piece is evaluated by our own personal taste, fit, and budget.  After the purchase, that item goes into our closet with the hopes it will become an active part of our wardrobe and be integrated into what we already have.  It takes vision to look at a computer screen with a garment worn by a model or mannequin and imagine what it will look like on us and what it will look like paired with other items we own.  It takes an equal amount of vision to stand in the middle of a store full of clothes and picture this one item at home, going with the rest of our closet.

Green St Patrick's Day Lookbook | Designing From My Closet

Happy St Patrick’s Day!  I can’t believe we are officially in the spring season beginning Monday.  Time sure is flying by.  Green is my absolute favorite color and has been ever since I can remember, so dressing for St Patrick’s Day has always been a special treat for me.  Here are four looks I recently pulled together from items in my closet that have green in them.  They not only are appropriate for today, they are perfect for all Spring long!  Most of these items have been thrifted or purchased at discount retailers such as Target and Charming Charlie so they are very budget friendly.

The cold shoulder trend has been one I was slow to receive and then when I was ready to add it to my wardrobe, I took my time to find just the right piece to do it with.  Today I am sharing my very first cold shoulder top that still reflects my eclectic modern vintage aesthetic.
