For the past few months I feel like my style has been all over the place. When I really think about it, every fall and spring I have somewhat of a sartorialist breakdown because as the seasons change my closet turns into a melting pot of winter coats and summery dresses. The result? It can be a bit overwhelming to put together an outfit. Last weekend, William & I went on a major spring cleaning frenzy! Basically I ditched anything that I haven’t worn in the past month (with the exception of staple leather jackets, potential black tie dresses, etc…) and I must say I feel revived. Then I sat down and took a nice hard look at my Pinterest board that I created called “My Dress Code.” These are outfits that I feel represent my personal style and I created the board to help inspire outfits. When I took a look at my “Damsel Dressed” board and the clothes I actually wear and compared it to “My Dress Code” board of the things I think I am wearing, the two just did not match up. My new plan is to always check my inspiration board while I am getting ready. I even printed out a few of my favorites and hung them in my closet.

Happy Spring Cleaning!

    Glad that you’ve gotten back into your own style, this is such a cute two piece look, almost looks like a romper!

  • Sharon

    I am totally LOVING the blonder look you’re sporting these days. Your look today is so easy-breezy and attainable. I love when you put together looks that are affordable, or even a high-low mix – not everyone can afford the overall high end look.

    Keep these looks coming!

    Glad I’m not the only one! I had a huge meltdown trying to find an outfit over the weekend for a bike ride that resulted in my bed and floor covered in clothes and a stroppy me for the rest of the day. A spring clean for me is definitely in need, nice to know other people experience this too!

    Great spring outfit, so light and summery.

  • Love this outfit! So light and summery.

  • I should check my Pinterest board before getting dressed as well. It’s so easy to fall into the same rut and wear the same ‘look’ over and over again (GUILTY!)

  • I really love that idea. I have a Style board on Pinterest of outfits I aspire to, and for me I think I need to have images on hand as I start adding to my wardrobe.
