creating my closet - part 3

Once I cultivated a closet of items that work for me - sometimes a little inspiration is needed to avoid falling into a rut of boredom.  I have not been good about having a vision of my style, so this is my first attempt at building a digital style-board of outfits I'd love to recreate with pieces I already own. 

Instead of constantly feeding the desire to shop, I want to focus on contentment and simplicity - while still having a daily style that makes me feel good.  New items aren't necessary for that, but perhaps new combinations are the ticket to a creative closet.

1.  I absolutely adore reading Joslyn's outfit deconstructed posts.  Her bold jewelry, dresses, and wedges are my favorite

2. Reese Witherspoon's style is right up my alley - casual, classic, girly and approachable.  Her casual sweaters, flats, sunglasses, and cross-body bags are standards in my wardrobe (ok - not the sunglasses, but everything else).

plus, I think her hot pink necklace could be fun to recreate on the cheap...

3. Emersonmade's clothes are fabulous, but I love the simple styling with perfectly tailored pieces in neutral colors.

4. A few images from Liz's style inspiration posts

Now that I've compiled looks that I truly love, I'm seeing the trends in my style:

loads of neutrals // long, layered hair // cardigans // flat boots or ballet flats // all shades of blue //  little pops of pink or yellow or green //  dresses that hit slightly above the knee // menswear-inspired

part 1 - building my closet
part 2 - shopping for my closet

LOVE this. I need to do this exercise, but I feel like it would probably just make me sad that i only have maternity clothes to choose from. for some reason the fun of maternity clothes has worn off by the third time. ?? oh well! hope you are SOOOO well.
