So…most of the time when I’m thinking of non-life-essentials my brain is churning with all sorts of ideas for around the house, what will look good with what, paint colors, diy plans, you name it. You know what I am not bursting with ideas for?
I don’t know if it is the loooonnng winter or what, but I’m feeling like I have nothing to wear when I look in my drawers/go in the closet. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been wearing the same stuff for 6+ mos, but almost everything I own feels incredibly frumpy when I put it on. Ugh!
I’m not naturally talented at putting outfits together, which is not helping in the least. I feel in many ways I need to fill in some basic outfit staples I have been lacking that would make it easier to mix and match. Oh my, I’m a grown-up for goodness sake…I should have this together! A lot of my clothes are garage sale finds that look great at the sale, but when I get them home and try them on, they don’t fit well or don’t go with anything. I like to be thrifty but sometimes that doesn’t work out as well as I would like.
I’m always inspired by the outfit posts Rosie and Lisa put together, and the style tips on Maskara…and I’m looking for more!! If you know of a good guide to building a wardrobe (or have written one yourself!) please let me know in the comments! I would love to find other blogs with outfit posts or style series too. Or, if you know of some great clothing sales going on, let me know too. : ) I’m sending out a style SOS!
