That's why I occasionally play in my closet at night after I'm showered and the kids are asleep. There's no urgency to be anywhere, and I can take my time to pair miscellaneous items together.
Take this skirt, for instance. I hesitated to purchase it, wondering if it would be versatile enough to work with what I already own. Coupling it with a basic white tee, I worked to create distinctive looks by layering sweaters, adding accessories, and swapping different shoes.
First, I opted for a tan cardigan, brown belt, tall boots, and a pendant necklace.
Then, I paired the skirt with a gray cardigan, black belt, and short black boots. (Why am I looking at the floor, you wonder? Don't quote me on this, but I'm guessing that the bug on my ceiling last week probably crawled its way downward.)
Finally, I considered the fact that winter will eventually end. (Winter, you will end. I'm telling you straight up.) I partnered the skirt with a chartreuse cardigan, added a sash in lieu of a belt, and finished the look with a pair of heels that I snagged for a dollar at a clearance sale. One buck!
Your morning self will thank you.
