Whenever a new season rolls around, I'm always a little baffled by my wardrobe. Why do I see my closets filled with clothes yet feel like I don't have outfits to wear? This season I've told myself I don't need more clothes--I just need more creativity. This Anthropologie-inspired ensemble (a shout out to my brother-photographer for capturing such great back lighting!) is second-hand style at my best: The navy and gold sash is vintage, borrowed from my mom's collection. The crotchet sweater is thrifted. And the navy skirt I recently refashioned, updating an old skirt I hadn't worn in years. Cheers!
