I spent some time playing with Polyvore today.  Thinking about the different ways to wear some basic pieces and jazz it up with some fun accessories.  Keeping with my rule of 3 theme  I created an errand day, casual friday and work day outfit all centred around a grey shawl cardigan and white t-shirt. I also kept the main pieces neutral and played with colour in the accessories. 

Errand Day

Errand Day

 

For a day running errands I started with the shawl cardigan &  t-shirt, adding dark wash skinny jeans and flat black  boots - always useful in the rainy Vancouver weather.  Then I added some colour with a red infinity scarf - SOOOO easy to wear and warm too.  And a matching watch - I know we rarely wear watches anymore but they can be a great accessory.  Then I mixed it up a bit with a teal shoulder bag.

Then I took the same sweater and dressed it up a bit with dark wash wide leg trouser jeans and black wedge boots. Then for colour I added a teal scarf - looser and dressier fabric than the infinity scarf, the same red watch and a red bag.

Here I added a grey pencil skirt and my favourite black and grey fluevogs as the base.   The colour comes from the red watch (I know I love this watch), a long red neclace and a teal bag. 

I have to say it is so much easier to style outfits on Polyvore than from my own closet. No messing around with my camera, no worrying about my bad hair day, no worrying whether something is clean or wrinkled. And I never have to leave my office chair to find new items to show.  I can see a lot of time spent here in the future.
