So I’m doing something a bit crazy (well, at least for me)- for this entire month, I won’t be doing ANY clothes shopping! That means no weekend trips to my fave stores on Newbury, no late night online shopping. I’m shopping only from my closet this month. And because things are definitely better with friends, I’m teaming up with some of my blogging friends, Maggie, Whitney, Kait and Danielle for moral support to get through this month without one of our favorite hobbies 😉 together.
Each Friday in January, I’ll be rounding up my outfits from the week and sharing my tips for styling from your own closet at the end of each post.
Here we go with week one…
Tuesday, January 5th: Vest: Loft (previously seen here) Top: Ann Taylor Pants: J.Crew Belt: Ann Taylor Shoes: Nordstrom (prior season, similar here) Bracelet: Kendra Scott via Rocksbox (use code bostonchicpartyxoxo for your first month free!)
My tips on styling your closet from week one:
- Make a warmer weather outfit ready for the cold by switching out for a warmer top or pants for a similar, but new look. Example: my Monday outfit which is practically the same as my Blush & Plum post with the exception of changing out the silky tunic for a sweater in the same hue.
- Get inspiration from Pinterest: I was checking out Pinterest in prep for this month and found a pin from Ann Taylor with a dress I literally owned. It reminded me that I had the dress and I styled this look after the pin. Check out my board for more inspiration 🙂
- Adding different accessories can change a whole look (so can makeup!). Example: Tuesday’s outfit which with the addition of a belt and brown boots looked a lot different from the first time I wore this sweater vest. Makeup can also change a look, like my look from our first wedding of 2016 on Saturday. I was super proud of myself for wearing this dress again when normally I’m a “one event and done” kind of girl.
Until next week, friends…
