Fashion Friday!

Phew!  I have been in a fashion rut!  I'm not sure if it is the never-ending Sprinter (Spring/Winter), lack of new clothing items, or just laziness in general, but I need to get my act together!  Plus, now my beloved Lindsey is in Iowa and we won't be able to get together for some FF posts for a few weeks (the horror!)!

To attempt and get myself out of this rut, I spent a good amount of time last night making some outfits.  When I did this in February I absolutely loved it!  It is just the preparation that takes time, planning and effort (like everything in life).  I really tried to dig deep in my closet and pull out some gems I haven't worn in a while, so I apologize that quite a few items I can't remember where they are from!  Since I have no idea what will happen with the weather, not sure what will or will not get worn.

I also needed to get my fashion act together because I am out of town the next three weekends!  Nate will hold the fort down with the little girls.  I have some work, some play, and a baby shower!  Packing takes me some time, so hopefully I can just grab a few of these pre-styled outfits and be ready to go.  I will post an update with what gets worn!

I purchased this dress on sale at Target and have been dying to wear it, but the weather has just been a little too chilly!  If it warms up about 10 degrees it will be perfect because it has long sleeves.  Come on sun!

Dress: Target, Sandals: Target, Necklace: gift from Mom in Key West

Even though I almost never wear black, I do work some into my wardrobe every now and then.  This blazer is so old, I can't even remember where I got it!  But I love the lined cuff accent so it adds enough spice for me to wear black. :)

Necklace: Urban Outfitters, Jeans: Alloy

I still love this Target scarf, but at times struggle with exact outfits to wear it with!  This yellow and white striped shirt works - I always love stripes on stripes!  Again, can't remember where I got the top or jeans.

Scarf: Target, Belt: Urban Outfitters

I have been patiently waiting for it to get slightly warmer so I can wear this skirt!  I think it is so versatile because it has tons of colors that I have in my wardrobe to mix and match!  I love mixing prints so I thought this would be a cute pairing.

Cardigan: Forever 21, Tank: Target, Skirt: Target, Necklace: Forever 21

These ankle pants from Target actually come to my shins, but I think they are too cute!  They are super tight on my non-existent calves, but fit well everywhere else.  I love them because they work to dress up or down!

Blazer: Forever 21, Tank: Francesca's, Pants: Target, Belt: Banana Republic

Again, love me some stripes, and when I saw the sale tanks at Old Navy a few months ago I had to scoop a couple up! I dress up my tank tops often with cardigans, work pants, or wear them casually with jeans. 

Cardigan: NY&Co, Tank: Old Navy: Necklace: NY&Co, Pants: NY&Co, Belt: Banana Republic

I love peplum tops, and have been wanting to figure out a way to make this one a bit less nighttime and doable for during the day.

Top: NY&Co, Skirt: Limited

And then of course, the aftermath of packing for my trips (also posted on Instagram) and creating outfits - insanity in the bedroom!  Clothes and accessories thrown everywhere!  You can see it was entertaining our cat, Sushi!

Is anyone else in a fashion rut?  What tricks do you have to get out of it?

Happy Friday!
