How often do you look into your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear? This happened to me all the time until I recently changed my perspective. Instead of dressing for the occasion, I started to dress based on my mood. Do I feel sophisticated, spunky or girly at the moment? I realized that by tapping into my mood, it makes the process of finding the right outfit fun and less stressful.

Using this approach to style, today’s post features four fun denim looks that were put together based on my mood. From feminine, creative, casual and adventurous, each of these outfits reflects something about my mood and personality at the time of wearing it. When I feel creative, I like to add a lot of layers and mix patterns and colors. When I feel feminine, I instantly reach for warm tones. When I feel casual, I tend to gravitate towards neutral pieces. And when I feel adventurous, I like pairing the denim with something that has a lot of movement.

These jeans are from Target’s new affordable denim collection and they are fabulous! As a petite gal, I find it hard to find jeans that fit and look great right off the rack, but these are perfect. I love the wash, slight distressed look and fit is amazing. Seriously, Target has done it again!

I love style challenges, especially the ones that take me out of my comfort zone! Today’s style challenge is all about olive, the newest neutral color this summer! Like most people, I was initially intimidated by this color because it has somewhat of a masculine and melancholy vibe to it. But surprisingly, when pairing it with other complementary colors, I find that olive is a very flattering and versatile color to work with and can be incorporated into just about any outfit. Above are two distinct looks I created in which olive was seamlessly incorporated into each of the outfits. Which one would you wear?

Casual Chic

Since I want olive to stand out, I’m pairing the top with light neutrals and adding in hints of pink to soften the look. This casual feminine outfit is super chic to run errands in or have brunch with your girlfriends.

Glam Chic

Nothing elevates an outfit more than a beautiful, fitted trench coat. In this look, I’m pairing the olive trench coat with a white dress shirt, nude sandal heels, and lots of gold accessories for that glam factor.

How would you incorporate olive into your wardrobe?

Summer got me thinking of the one-piece outfit. It’s effortless, comfy and versatile! But how do you take a casual one-piece like this cute black romper and transform it into outfits that are bold and chic? You add pops of colors, layers, killer heels and a little bit of tulle! That’s exactly what I did when I took on a fun style challenge from Target, styling this simple one-piece four different ways for four days! Let’s run down all the looks. First up, the Office Chic!

Day 1 :: Office Chic
Turn up the sophistication by pairing the romper with a structured trench coat and pumps. For a summery vibe, I’m wearing the romper with duo-tone strappy heels, a peach colored trench coat and an electric blue crossbody. I absolutely love that pop of color; it really brightens up the outfit.

Day 2 :: Errand Style
Run errands in style by pairing the romper with a shirt. I chose a fitted chambray shirt to create shape since the romper has a loose silhouette. Instead of flats I’m wearing strappy chunky heels. They are way cuter and just as comfortable.

Day 3:: Girls’ Brunch
Brunch in tulle? Why not? This is a fun and unexpected look, not to mention super cute! If you don’t have a tulle skirt, wear the romper with any a-line skirt. It’s a great way to create an entirely different outfit from the romper. And no one will suspect you’re wearing one either!

Day 4 :: A Night Out on the Town Chic
It’s amazing what a little jacket can do to an outfit. This fitted pink jacket is exactly what I needed to create a bold, edgy look with this cute romper.
