I don’t know where I expected to be 4 months into this journey, but I’m just not there yet!! My goal is to upgrade my wardrobe and to do a better job at putting together ‘fashionable’ outfits…and it just doesn’t appear to be happening, so I’m frustrated. I read blogs daily and see all of these wonderful outfits that seem to be put together so effortlessly and wonder why mine don’t come together like that!? I feel like I just have new clothes (and accessories), but nothing ‘upgraded’ about my new style compared to my previous style. I’m not sure how to achieve that upgraded look! More expensive pieces? I’ve got the essentials, now how do I put them together to create such looks as my fashion blogger favs?
It’s frustrating, but my sister told me yesterday to just keep building my wardrobe! So that’s what I’m doing in prayer that one day I’ll walk to my closet and be able to pull out something amazing! In the meantime, I’ve gotten creative with what I do already have. The other day I layered a solid green peplum top over a black and white print dress and it came out pretty cute! When we had our tease of nice weather I pulled out some corduroy shorts and my riding boots and a cute top…surprised myself! I got stopped in the Rite Aid by a girl who said I look cute! BOOSTED!! I just need to get creative and BE determined! What do you do when your wardrobe seems to be out of options!?
I’m attending the Yours/Mine Secondhand Shopping Soiree this weekend! I hope to make someone’s “old” my “new”!!
