Guys, I am in a rut. Lately with the gloomy weather I just haven’t been feeling that inspired. My outfits have been simple, my hair ends up in a bun every single day, and overall things have just been a little “blah!” over here. It doesn’t help that I am trying to be more responsible with my budget and avoid my constant need to bring new clothing items into the house. Today I am hitting the reset button and sharing a few of the things that are helping me beat my rut without spending a dime… (I bet you can style each of these using items you already own.)
Cigarette skinnies & pumps — okay okay, this one’s not new. I always love a pair of skinny grey or black jeans paired with pointed spike heels. Just identifying that this is a “signature” look for me is helping me feel inspired.
I love this look — I am a sucker for rolled cuffs, but a distressed rolled cuff feels just a hint more fresh and fun!
Stacked arm candy has been a trend for a while, but I love the simplicity of the way this one was styled. I think the hint of metallics in each piece keeps the look cohesive and I love that none of the baubles are too big or overly flashy. Juuuuust right.
Instead of throwing my hair into this mess of a low bun everyday I want to kick things up a notch with a ladylike curled high pony. (Bow optional.)
Having a clean, organized, pretty desk, makes a huge difference. I am at my desk for 8-10 hours a day, it had better look good, right? I’ll be organizing with cute Paper Source accessories and a bundle of fresh flowers.
Striped top and BF jeans with adorable Parisian messy-on-purpose hair. Looks like I’ll be stealing one of Gressel’s shirts and pairing with the sandal pumps to keep the look feminine.
Lastly I am going to adjust my attitude and try and love as much as I can. Rain is annoying, but ultimately good for us! 🙂
