pinterest is both a joy giver and a joy stealer for me.
i’ve talked many times about how it’s been a life saver when i’m standing in front of my closet, not sure what to wear.
but sometimes it complicates things.
when i fixate on recreating another’s look, there are many times i don’t like my version as well, and i feel unsatisfied.
to try and get myself out of this rut, i’ve started with one item i want to wear and used it to find inspiration within the rest of my closet.
take this outfit for example. i wanted to be super productive yesterday, so i picked this button up i’ve always worn with my suit. i held it up against the different bottoms i have in my closet, and it seemed to pop out against this skirt. from there, i paired it with cognac flats for the day, and these heels for date night.
bam! take that, pinterest. (please don’t leave me. i love you.)
