Something I've been striving to do over the past year is to make my wardrobe more grown-up. When faced with the decision between two pieces, I try to ask myself, "Is something a teenager would likely buy?" and try to stay away from things that could be found in the closet of a high schooler. Note: This rule does not apply to what any of the Pretty Little Liars cast would wear as they dress beyond their years. In fact, I can see a little Spencer in this outfit.
Sometimes I look at the new blouses in my closet and want to wear them, but don't want to "dress up". I find the addition of denim, inexpensive jewelry and a hat can take things down a notch and make blouses look much less stuffy.
