Are you ready for the ultimate shop-my-closet post? Well, here it is! Yesterday, my friend Steph came over to help me put together some looks all from a few pieces that I already had in my closet. She’s a personal stylist for a living and so talented at making outfits that look effortlessly chic.
I have been so uninspired lately in getting dressed and I often stand in front of my closet and have no idea what to put on so I end up reaching for the same things over and over. I really wanted to get out of that slump without buying a whole new wardrobe so I asked Steph for her help.
At the end of a very quick but effective hour-long styling session, we ended up with 8 great outfits for late winter/early spring as well as a list of a few things that I had to buy including:
She also taught me one of her styling rules of thumb:
Always layer 3 pieces in an outfit with pants, unless one piece makes a statement (not including shoes and accessories). So, for example, you can see jeans with a tee and sweater below but if you scroll down you’ll see white jeans with a blouse. That has only two layers but the flouncy sleeves and interesting shape make it a statement piece.
Sorry for the terrible photos. I took them as a reference for myself but then decided late last night to share them here!
If I’ve learned anything from this exercise, it’s that sometimes you just need to look at your clothing with a fresh set of eyes… and that it’s truly time to figure out my mirror selfie situation!
Which one is your favorite?
