Hello again, I’m back after a little break. I felt the Lord was calling me to take a little break to refocus on the family, my family that is. So worth it.
My joy has reemerged. Somehow I had lost focus and got more interested in “my own thing” that being a mom and wife was starting to feel a little humdrum. I’m a stay at home mom, so I figure I better really love this staying at home business, have joy, and make it a fun adventure.
This break allowed for me to be refilled with joy as I took more time to be “present” and spent less time on social media, and the computer. Asher’s laughter, being outside, making healthy time for myself…it was all wonderful.
Even down to my wardrobe… I was feeling like it was a little humdrum, stale, maybe tired. You know when you feel like you have nothing to wear?
I recently stumbled across a really inspiring blog, greater than rubies, where Caitlin spent a whole year using the same wardrobe she had, not spending a dime on it...and at one point, right when she felt tempted to complain about her wardrobe she decided to become inspired by pinterest. She also used style blogs for inspiration. Talk about a great way to reinvent your wardrobe. New outfits you never thought of come unearthed, and you didn’t have to spend a cent.
So here’s my outfits that were inspired from pinterest. Most of them just borrow elements and “structure” from my pinterest style board. I started with like items, sometimes a similar palette, but at other times I just borrowed the combination of x and y and ignored the palette altogether. It’s totally flexible!
( If your curious, here’s the inspiration pin)
Neutrals and mint!! (the source). This was about when I thought it would be fun to “copy” (or be inspired) by the pinterest poses. Get ready for some drama!
My mom would not enjoy my lack of smile here. haha. Here’s the pinspiration link.
If you’ll look at the inpiration for this photo you might be confused because it doesnt look a lot like it…I really just borrowed the boots and skirt combination, with a tucked in blouse. It’s very different look using the similar “structures.” Here’s the pin.
Letting my artsy self shine haha. I tried to take the photo through the screen of our back porch…I think I like how it turned out. Click here for the pinspiration. Also very different in color. I just borrowed the dress, with cover, belt, and tight idea.
What about you? Do you have any tricks, or ways you get out of a style rut (preferably without spending money)?
Lots of hugs, and love,
