In a Wardrobe Slump? ME TOO!

I don’t know what it is these days – is it the weather? Is it the extra “winter fluff”? Is it having to wear ugly snow boots to work instead of my cute shoes? Whatever the reason, I’m not feeling ANY of my clothes right now. I (over-) compensate for that by wardrobing my 2-year old, because let’s face it: her teensy clothes are way cheaper than mine. Also way cuter, but that is entirely beside the point. So let’s look at doing a little internet shopping, shall we?

I am super, mega-loving this right now. It has nothing to do with my winter wardrobe crisis, but it might make me feel a little better about things. Right?

Moving on, let’s talk jeggings. THAT is a trend I never thought I’d like. But these? I kinda want. I have the Gap Real Straight jeans, and my understanding is that these are similar. Do you have them? Do you like them? Did you size normal, up, down, etc.? These are the things that keep me up at night. At any rate, I’ve been wearing my awesome Old Navy boots a lot lately, and I think these would be great together. (hey, speaking of those boots… I think I may order another pair. I have the Cognac and LOVE them. I may need to love the black or brown ones, too.)

You know, come to think of it, maybe it’s not so much my clothes I’m bored with. Maybe I just need to accessorize more! A couple of Charming Charlie stores just opened near me – have you shopped there? Do you like it? My understanding is that it’s organized by color. I’m thinking I could pick my favorite outfits, note what colors they are, and shop from there? What do you think?

Sorry this post was all over the place. ‘Tis the season for mind rambles and scrambles, right? In the meantime, tell me: What do you do to avoid or overcome the winter wardrobe blahs?
