So lately I have been having a little problem with being inspired with my wardrobe. Part of it has been not feeling well physically, part of it has been not feeling well emotionally, and part of it has been finding myself becoming overwhelmed when I look in my closet. I know some bloggers out there are all about capsule wardrobes and less is more philosophy. Not me, I like all my stuff.
Anyway, to try and pull myself out of this uninspired phase I have been trying to just choose one piece from my wardrobe and build a look around it so I won’t feel overwhelmed. Today I actually kind of chose two pieces, so maybe that’s why I don’t feel this look was as successful as it could have been (that I couldn’t find the skirt I was looking for). I started with these two-toned Mary Janes because they have been in my closet forever now and have yet to be worn and from there I included this blouse because it still had tags on it and I thought they went together nicely.
Wearing: Cardigan – NY&Co. // Blouse – NY&Co. // Skirt – Liz Claiborne // Shoes – Nine West
When all is said and done, I probably will style this top much simpler next time with clean lines and let it stand out for itself, instead of adding so many fussy details. One of the things I have learned over the past couple of years is to not be afraid to try something different. Sometimes it really works and sometimes not so much. At the end of the day, they come off for a fresh start tomorrow.
