{wiww + room inspiration} week 6

Week six?! Wow. WIWW is like boot camp some weeks....and other weeks it's been super easy for me to put outfits together.  I think the hardest thing, is trying to fight the urge to just go out and buy all new clothes (not that that is even an option) it's hard to work with shirts and jeans you've had for years! My old clothes appear "boring" and "blah" sometimes when I'm standing in my closet trying to decide what to wear that day.  I feel like I've worn  many of them a thousand times over.  None of my clothes (besides a few select pieces, which I can probably count on my fingers) are "expensive."  And the few that are labeled "expensive" were probably STILL bought on sale.....

On the flip side, I LOVE a good challenge.  And the past six weeks have really helped me get out of my "rut" thinking I had nothing to wear.  I've looked at my once "old" and "boring" clothes in a different light, seeing potential.  Adding layers, accessories, mixing new with old, has helped me see things differently.  Some of my "old" clothes have new life because I've found pairing them with other things helps them appear "new".  Seeing colors on a large scale {in my inspiration rooms} has helped me put together color combinations I would have never thought of before. 

This is all to say.....I've learned to love getting dressed in the morning.  I love getting inspiration from other women doing the same!  So here's to another week of clothes.... let's remember that underneath all the clothes is a person who wants to feel beautiful, and it's not what you wear, its what you do in the clothes that you wear.  So go out and make a new friend, volunteer your time, hug a stranger, step outside of your box and take a risk,  call a long lost friend, donate your "old" clothes to goodwill, and do something that truely reflects who are on the inside.

  8. Okay, I'm obsessed with your wiww posts. :) You are GOOD. I'm looking around this room right now, and wouldn't have a clue how to take cues from it and create a great outfit. You are amazing! It's hard to pick a favorite because they're all so cute. It's a tie between the St. Paddy's day one (I love green/blue together), the shorts one, or the first one with the fun skirt. I know, not fair to pick three.

    Last week on my wiww post, I said I was done. But you make me want to keep doing it! Hmm. Great job!
