Focus: skinny cargo pants, drapey sweater, moto jacket, and platform booties

Any thoughts on the whole “I have nothing to wear” phenomenon, dear readers??

Chances are that it’s sooo not true – if you’re a fan of shopping and all things related to fashion, you’ll likely have a closet that’s overflowing with sartorial goodies!!  But every once in a while, our personal style mojo can do a bit of a disappearing act…and all those pieces that we usually adore??  They suddenly don’t want to come together into an acceptable combination.

Today was one of those days for me…I wasn’t in the mood to wear anything in my wardrobe!!  So how did I deal??  I started by focusing on just one item that’s been out of regular rotation recently – these skinny cargos – and let the mixing and matching begin!!  And even though I might have ended up with more stuff piled on the bed than on hangers…I also (finally!) managed to find an ensemble I loved!!

Do you have any tips for working around a personal style “dry spell”…or even avoiding one all together?? I think my hubby would be really grateful if you shared!!  😉

    You came up with a winning ensemble again! I also love adding my leather moto jacket to outfits. I had a somewhat similar flail through the closet this morning. I knew I wanted to wear my black skinny jeans, but what else was going with it?! After three or four attempts I felt pretty good about my layers–my favorite new grey tee, a long colorblocked wool sweater in shades of blue, and a light blue denim vest. Oh, and a beautiful saffron colored scarf that my daughter knit for me. It sounds weird as i describe it but it worked for me!
