I like to pretend that I’m stylish, but I’m nothing compared to the many talented and stylish ladies filling the blogosphere with inspiring outfits like these:
A classic shirt with some flair thanks to her skirt.
And then there’s this combination of the classic blazer and chambray shirt with the girly sequined skirt.

Do you see where I’m going with this? Yes, it’s time to post about my new favorite sequined skirt for the third time! I’ve only worn it twice. On Christmas to eat brussel sprouts and then to my boss’s after-holiday party. As you can see from above, I turned to Pinterest and other lovely style blogs for help.

For this week’s Friday’s Fancies post, I picked a few classic pieces (black pumps, striped shirt) and punchy accessories (the persimmon bag) to create multiple outfits around the sequin mini.
If we’re getting down to specific style blogs, I’m a huge fan of Kendi Everyday and her approachable style. She knows how to mix up an outfit like none other! Which is great for us ladies with a limited budget (remember Friday’s Fancies is for fun!). I’m not brave enough for a 30 for 30 remix, but I use some of her tips for shopping my closet when I get into an outfit rut, especially when getting dressed for work.
I’m starting to think outside of the box when I get dressed in the morning. Which means moving beyond the cardigan + black pants + dress shoes formula. For example, I’ve added colored tights to the mix. And I’ve started to wear belts with cardigans. Nothing crazy, but those little changes have helped me try something new instead of giving up and buying new clothes.
Where do you look when you’re in a style rut?
