the one with the first black and white outfit

I realized a few days ago I have never done a full black and white outfit. It’s either all black or all white. I do mix the two colors . . . I mix the two colors a lot so it’s only natural that they be on the blog. It’s shocking that they aren’t on the blog almost every week, really. But, better late than never right.

Now, serious question. Have you ever walked out of the house with two different earrings on? two different shoes? different socks? I do the socks thing on purpose sometimes, and somehow I’ve never walked out with two different shoes on. There have been times when I’m running so late that I’m sure the only reason that worked out is because of my C.O.D. – closet organizational disorder. (overly organized life really not just closet) But wearing two different earrings. I tend to end up doing that a lot. I try one on to see if it looks good . . . then I try another in the other ear . . . and then I just walk out the door. Proof is up above in the 3rd picture. It was only a matter of time before it happened on the blog.

versatility is a noun that means having a wide variety of skills.

versatility describes having many different skills or qualities.

Versatility allows you to adapt to many different situations.

I love versatility. I especially love versatile clothing. When I go shopping if I can’t think of at least 3 different ways to wear with what’s already in my closet while browsing – then I don’t buy it (except for special occasions). 3 might sound like a lot, but it’s actually pretty easy. What will it look like by itself? Do I have a completer piece that matches it? Shoes that match? Can I dress it up and down? These are all quick questions to ask that will find you 3 different ways to wear it. It also cuts down on having unnecessary clothing filling my closet or clothes I rarely wear. I’m harsh at the store, but I’ve never been a girl to donate clothes with the tags still on.

This ‘dress’ I have on . . . it’s a skirt. Talk about versatility. I was a little worried that because of my shape I might just look like a sack of potatoes, which is why I added that belt. No potatoes in Florida.

Do you look for versatility when it comes to clothing?
