It’s always good to have something that you’ve tested wearing before. Don’t you have something that you wear that is tried and true? I put this outfit together last year for a video for last summer’s American Living for JCPenney “Made For” Campaign by Style Coalition. It is an easy fallback look when I don’t have a lot of time and need something that won’t wrinkle, is not too low or too short, and will not get ruined in the rain (and is machine washable!). Bonus: the accessories for this outfit were already figured out for the video, which saved more time as well! So yeah, it is a re-run outfit but I love it, I’m sure this is not the end of it!
