One skirt, three ways

One of my favorite closet challenges to present to myself is to rework one item into several different outfits for different occasion or with different styles.  This is one of my favorite ways to 'shop my closet' and create some new excitement about pieces that have been hanging around for a while.  Today I have taken a fun patterned pencil skirt and reworked it with three different styles that would all work well for separate occasion- the boho look for lunch with girlfriends, the preppy look for the office, and the glam look for a summer wedding or evening soiree.  Do you like reworking the current items in your closet? I hope this post provides you with some new motivation to do just that!
