Stylenspire: dress possibilities

This dress screams "have fun & enjoy wearing me". The summer brights makes me think I should be on my way out to some fun place where I can bask in the sunshine & smell the flowers. This summer pretty dress also transitions into a fall/winter joy; the key to that is layering. 

My pretty neon cardi is one of my favourites. I like to scrunch up the sleeves whenever I wear it. But not all fabrics (especially certain knits) can withstand many wash & wear without crumbling. Since the ribbed hem of the sleeves no longer bounce back after wash, my answer to that is a neat fold of the sleeve. I even like the styled look. Sometimes you do something out of necessity, but you get a 'stylish do' as a result.

Having much is always a blessing, but when prudence takes precedence, you make the the gift of creativity work for you. Possibilities are endless when you open your mind to style art. I hope these pictures stylenspire you to spruce your staples in various ways.

Stylenspiration: "Summer blooms can also be fall brights. Less or more can make it work."
*Summer is still in full bloom, yet there are fall whispers in all things fashion. As you fashionably style on through the summer, take mental notes for yourself on pieces that you can incorporate into your fall/winter styles. Before you go hunting for fall pieces, first shop your closet. *
