A friend and I were having coffee last week, and she was telling me about her latest purchases when she said something I loved: “I really like the look of a white blazer, but that doesn’t fit my life very well. So I thought about how I could make it work for me, and realized I wear my jean jacket all the time. I’d wear it every day if I could. So I got a white jean jacket and have been browsing Pinterest for ways to wear it.”
She flipped the “I have to have that piece” mindset to, “How can I make this look I like work for my life?” Perfect!
You can even take it a little further, and use any look with a white completer piece as inspiration:
Is there an item you like that just doesn’t work for your life? How have you (or will you) flip it?
