fashion rut (help!)

I don’t have much to say today and my meal choices have been largely uninspired – dinner was a bowl of Honey Nut Chex and a chocolate chip cookie and milk, delicious but nothing to write home about.  Because of this, I wasn’t planning to blog but I was reading a few blogs today and fashion kept coming up.  Jenny at Peanut Butter and Jenny is doing a Five Days of Fashion series this week – an idea that I love but my outfits are too boring to participate – and A Healthy Happier Bear posted her outfit today and it was adorable.

Since I work full-time, I don’t get very creative with my outfits these days.  Yes, there are the days I rush to yoga and have to camouflage leggings and sports bras underneath my office wear but those don’t always result in “fashion” by any means.  I love to shop but find myself looking for things that can double as work and weekend wear.  This means that on the weekends, I often don’t want to wear what I have because it reminds me of being at the office.  I end up in lots of dress pants and sweater or cami/cardigan combos.

Of course, shopping for my honeymoon has been easy.  Summer is so much easier to shop for!

Thank you J.Crew for these fun new arrivals.

My go-to stores are J.Crew, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft.  I try to look at some of the local boutiques but I do have a budget to consider.  Forever 21 tends to be hit or miss for me, the skirts are often a bit too short for me and it always feels like I really need to commit a good chunk of time to looking through the store.  Basically, I need help finding new places to shop and outfit inspiration – help!

Where do you buy your clothes?

How do you balance your work and play wardrobes?

  1. I feel like I’m in a huge rut when it comes to my work clothes! There are only 3 of us in our office so as much as I want to look super cute everyday, sometimes it just seems too much to get all done up just to go and see the same 2 people I see everyday! I find that I own a lot of work clothes and then a lot of clothes to wear “out” but I feel like I have no clothes to just lounge around in (shop, lunch, etc). I feel like I have NO clothes (even though I can’t fit one more thing in my dressers or closets!) 🙂

    • I feel EXACTLY the same way. What’s the point when I just sit at my desk the whole time? And the same with having lots of clothes but nothing to wear – we’re moving soon and I’ be glad to weed out some of the old things I don’t wear anymore. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find good replacement pieces!
