Carrie Hurley has finally recovered from the massive closet cleanse featured in Savvy’s March issue! Ashley Peeples, owner of Beige in Little Rock, helped her to downsize and organize her beautiful walk-in closet to create simple looks that are easily accessible for Hurley’s wardrobe needs.

The two fashionistas examined everything in Hurley’s closet and asked the questions, “Do you love it?” and “Do you feel good in it?” Anything that didn’t pass the test got the unfashionable boot. Once they cleared through all the clutter, there were some holes that needed filling.
After a trip to Beige for a few timeless, classic pieces, Hurley’s wardrobe was complete. Here are a few of her favorite highly-versatile looks that incorporate some of her own pieces and additions from Beige.

ROCK 'N' ROLL Hurley was coveting Peeple’s personal leather jacket during the closet cleanse, and she finally got one of her own to pair with a casual everyday outfit. “I feel a little rock 'n' roll in this! I would wear this all the time to meetings or just out for drinks,” she said. On Carrie: leather jacket by Mackage, Mother jeans, her own shirt and shoes.
BUSINESS CASUAL Blazers are great to add a professional touch to any outfit. This look is good for casual meetings and afterschool functions. The cotton blazer has some stretch for a comfy yet polished look. On Carrie: A Line tunic, T by Alexander Wang stretch crepe blazer, Bird & Knoll scarf, her own jewelry.
SPORTY STYLE Sneakers add instant sporty appeal to any outfit. Pair them with a blazer and shorts and you become queen of the urban jungle. This outfit is great when you are on-the-go, running errands, picking up kids, grabbing coffee with friends or exploring a new city. On Carrie: Emerson Fry slip-on leather sneakers, Alexander Wang shorts, T by Alexander Wang stretch crepe blazer, her own shirt.
IN THE GROOVE “I love this outfit, the flares really bring out the hippie in me,” Hurley said. This outfit easily transitions from day to night, when you remove the sheer cardigan to show off the blousy tunic underneath. On Carrie: Jenni Kayne tunic, Leo & Sage cardigan, Paige flare jeans, her own bag and earrings.
EASY BREEZY This blush-colored shirtdress is comfy, breezy and can easily be dressed up for work. “It feels like it could withstand the Arkansas heat,” Hurley said. On Carrie: Leo & Sage dress, Jerome Dreyfuss gray leather purse, Rachel Comey mules, Steven Alan sunglasses.
CASUAL CHIC The perfect weekend wear, this outfit is causal, trendy and great for lazy days at home or on-the-go with the kids. “I love this outfit for just days where I’m running around town,” Hurley said. On Carrie: James Perse cotton drawstring pants, Rachel Comey mules, her own shirt.
