I know what you're thinking. Well, ok fine, no I don't, but what I'm thinking is, 'a sweater tee?' Really? Really. I saw this One Creatures from the Wind for J.Crew crazy sweater tee and I fell in love. So much so, that I couldn't stop myself from pulling together looks that show how to wear this sweet little sweater. Four looks, but for now, I'm warming up with look 1 out of 4...

First things first, here's the sweater tee that's inspiring it all:


It's not just about what you have, it's about what you can do with it. I always tell my clients this. When it comes to your wardrobe and closet, you don't need as much as you think you do. The trick is utilizing what you have and getting a little styling direction.

My favorite part of a consult is when the client trys on a look I pull, goes to stare at themselves in the mirror, and I hear, "You know, I never would have thought to put this together." They linger, do a few twirls to check out all the angles, and I can see 'it' in their eyes. They love the way they look. New fashion perspective: accomplished.

Case in point, meet just one of the four looks that this sweater tee inspired:

This is definitely a fun and playful take on what to wear to work. If you look at this and think it would spark way to much conversation at the water cooler, and not the good kind of chatter (and C, who has a water cooler anymore), layer in a streamlined navy blazer or cardigan in a neutral to tone things down.

Pencil skirts are one of the most flattering pieces a woman can have. Pear shape, yes. Hour-glass, um yes, yes, yes. Boyish figures, even more so. You can't go wrong. Ok that's a lie. You can, but only if you are working a pencil skirt with flats. It's a no-no. The hem length calls for a heel so make sure that is factored into the fashion equation.

The rest of the look is edited down to hand-picked pieces that keep things simple, as they should be with such a vibrant sweater tee.
