I decided I would be ironic and wear my favorite blue shirt to work this past Monday for having the Monday Blues. I thought, "I can make a witty yet refreshing post and everyone will go crazy over it and I'll rule the world!", but when I saw the pictures from my mini photo shoot with Mr. BD at the end of the day, I was not impressed with the quality of the pictures. I was, however, impressed with my ability to create a completely new look from items I wear separately very often. It's not a new concept to blog about One Item, Three Ways but I sure haven't tried it so I thought I'd give it a shot. 

This top is classic, good quality, and on-trend for fall with the cobalt blue. It truly suits my fashion personality with the lace fringe trim along the sleeves and tiny, delicate buttons down the front. It is the kind of piece that needs no accessories, but is hard to pair with anything other than white or black. Any blouse can be utilized as the central item of a series of outfits with very little effort. My suggestion is, find a blouse in a color that compliments your complexion (for me, it is any jewel toned color) with unique elements (texture, cut, and embellishments) that can be layered or tucked for versatility. 

Do you have a versatile item that always completes an outfit?


  1. Hey Erin! I saw you on Girl with Curves peplum challenge and you looked great. Your blog is great, and your outfits look awesome. Keep it coming!

    1. Stacy, thanks so much for the compliment. I always appreciate when people stop by and like the outfits I come up with! And isn't Girl With Curves wonderful? I just love her blog.

    1. Thanks! That dress is so versatile. I tried to stick a pussybow blouse under it the other day and display the bow out the top, but..it might have looked a little ridiculous.
