I have been working really hard at putting together some complete outfits. I have curated lots and lots of outfits. A lot of times I have noticed that the best way to organize one’s closet and know what to shop for is to have visuals. I save a lot of my favorite outfits photos in a folder in my phone. That way I have somewhere to get inspiration on days where I don’t know what to wear. Sometimes is not that we ldon’t have the right clothes. We just run out of ideas of how to pair them. I often wake up and I know I want a cute mom outfit! But end up spending so much time not knowing what to wear and pulling out one thing after the other with no end in sight.
To be quick out the door, I have to organize my ideas about outfits what to pair with what. When I know what I have I can look at a cute outfit and put it together with what I have in my closet already. When I don’t have something I can shop consciously and buy out of need rather than ending up with doubles at home.
With all of these boardsI am sharing ideas such as a casual mom outfit, and more elegant ones. I even have put together a soccer mom outfit.
I am linking all the items below each photo as well so you can see where I got them from. Winter white dresses are becoming something that I want to be a staple in my closet since they are just so classic and bold.
These style boards below can also be saved for style inspiration ideas. As I mentioned above, I keep a folder on my iPhotos of all of my favorite outfit ideas. Every once in a while I scroll through all of these photos and I am able to recycle through outfit ideas. Sometimes I forget that one day I paired a specific item with a killer pair of shoes. I love visuals. So when I look at outfit photos I get inspired on how to recreate certain outfits with items that are already in my closet.
I screenshot photos of outfits all the time and keep them in my folder.
I shop with a preset monthly budget. So even when I can’t buy everything that I want all at once. I can at least preplan what I am going to buy when.
Sometimes I can’t find what I am looking for right away. When I keep a running list of what I need in my closet, I can search slowly online. I find that when I take the time to make decisions with purchases I end up getting the best clothes. I also either don’t end up buying that one item, because I forget about it… Or I can’t find it and I wait until the following year and then someone ends up making it and it’s the perfect pair. For example lately I am looking for a perfect pair or relaxed beige jeans. I haven’t found them yet. I may have to wait until spring or next winter. But I know I need them and when the time is right I’ll be able to find the right pair.
Shopping doesn’t always have to be a rushed decision out of urgency because everything will sell out.
I find that I love the most the pieces that I shopped for consciously rather than an impulse buy.
Another item I have been wanting to buy this winter for example are riding black boots.
