photos by angela + ithyle

over the next few weeks i will be posting outfits from my closet, in hopes to inspire new wardrobe ideas for you. all of the photos were taken in my new home for this brand new column (hooray!) - twice a week, a new occasion every time.

if you are anything like me, you have certain months of style dry spell. you know, where you stare inside your closet (for long periods of time) and sort of hate everything you see and so desperately want to start all over again? and then you go through (sometimes terrible) phases to try to find your style again. i felt myself slipping into that rut, and decided to get creative with my wardrobe and re-like some of my favorite things, and experiment wearing them in different ways. so welcome to the experiment. enjoy!

and as far as style goes, i couldn't agree more with this quote...
" i say, if you feel good at what your doing, let your freak flag fly. " - sarah jessica parker

I absolutely understand what you mean by standing in front of the closet and hate everything. It is quite funny, because there are days that you almost love everything! I have a hippie-etnic-retro kind of style and sometimes things wont go together but I dont care...I create my own funny creations and just like you, try everything out!

Alli said...

LOVE your outfit! looking forward to seeing more of your stylish ensembles :)

p.s. seriously..IN LOVE with your blog.

I love that idea. I have been following some 30x30 (30 days with 30 items of the closet) challenges on blogs and it has always turned out great. Cannot wait to find out what you'll show us and hopefully it will be inspiring both for us AND you ;)

Yours, Theresa from Neu4bauer

LOVE this! What a great idea, devoting a series of posts to getting you excited again about your closet and finding creative ways to make what you already have fresh and new. I'm excited to see the next posts :)

Oh the dreaded 'standing in the closet' scenario...mine always ends with my feathers ruffled that I have accumulated mostly black clothes and when the weather is really nice or you just don't want to risk looking goth...I'm just not into it, haha.

Thanks for this great post!

Love your outfit and, what a great idea it is to re-like and get creative with the wardrobe you do have!!

It seems appropriate for me since I'm saving to buy a house and can only glance longingly at most things from a distance!
