Inspiration: Cold Weather Chic * Winter Outfits

I am in an inspiration rut. I know the New Year is supposed to be full of new ideas, a fresh start and all kinds of other happy, find it on instagram, joy. And while the new year has kicked my ass in gear to clean out my closet, hop on the treadmill more regularly (training for that mini-marathon) and open up a new planner (trying to stick to those to-do’s), it has left me less than enthused about all things blogging.

That sucks right?

Sorry to be all debbie downer today but I figured I’d clue you in. That being said, I’m trying to stay positive and have made plans to freshen things up. Got the ball rolling on a new blog design, brainstorming on ways to evolve the site and rededicating myself to “shopping” my own closet rather than jump on the internet to buy something new whenever I’m in a style rut. But I feel like I need a kick-start in the fashion department. One minute I’m feeling good about my sartorial choices and the next minute I just want to throw in the towel and wear sweatpants. The fact that it was 55 degrees over the weekend and now 5 degrees is also probably not helping.

So I’m putting the jumper cables on my style and looking for some new outfit inspiration. Not fashion week inspiration but get up in the morning and get dressed for work or hanging out with friends style inspiration.

Inspiration: Elizabeth Olsen’s New ‘Do

Okay okay, I know everyone and their mother has cut their hair into ‘the Lob’ (you know, long bob – it needs to be shortened because writing that out is oh so tedious) this year. Karlie Kloss, Julianne Hough, Lauren Conrad just to get the ball rolling. But no one had me even considering taking a scissor to my strands until I saw Elizabeth Olsen’s new ‘do.

There’s something about Olsen that has made her something of a hair spirit guide lately. When I cut my hair a couple years ago, it was her picture that I took to the salon. And the long brown locks she’s been sporting recently had me thinking about going back to my more natural color. Then she went and did this.

I’ve been growing out my hair for what feels like forever and I’m not sold on starting over but when I saw Olsen’s drastic style difference, I felt mildly inspired. Enough so to call and make a hair appointment for today.

I don’t expect you’ll be seeing a big change but there’s that very small part of me that just might go for it. What do you think?

Inspiration: All That Glitters

It’s the holiday season. I’ve finally come to accept it which means it’s time to prepare for all the holidays bring with them – gift giving, parties, events, family gatherings and even a little traveling.

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is getting dolled up for holiday parties. Sometimes we even try to get a little fancy for Christmas dinner … sometimes. So to get in the right mindset for the season of sparkle, I’ve pulled together a little inspiration to help you shop your own closet, a friends’ or before you hit up the mall.

I’ve even included a few sparkly gift ideas at the end because I just couldn’t help myself.
