Much like many of my clients, I am a woman of many moods. (Just don't call me moody.) All you have to do is peruse my Instagram feed to see that some days I feel girly, some days classic and some days you'd think I walked out of the pages of Rolling Stone magazine (more staff member, less statuesque model).

Some women think that they need to have one look at all times. Their desire to feel or look differently at different times often confuses them to the point that they don't know what to buy or what to wear.

We women are complex, multifaceted beings who often have many different roles that we play throughout our lives (if not our days). It only makes sense that we would want or need to feel or be different things at different times. And that's OK.

Instead of letting it confuse or overwhelm, why not embrace it and go with it -- even if it means buying a variety of different styles to wear. The way I see it, it just gives us another reason to shop. I mean, support the (retail) economy.

Below are my picks for how to style just some of the many moods you might be feeling. For each look, I've chosen to go with a simple white T-shirt and jeans to show how easy it is to switch up some basics, just by what you choose to go with them.

All you need to do is select the pieces that reflect your mood -- whether it's head to toe or adding to some basics as I've done. Then go rock your look. That is, until you feel another mood coming on...
