Polka Power

Have you ever found yourself in a clothing rut?? Cus I have been feeling waist deep in a hole of fashion despair lately.

I’ve been trying to pare down my wardrobe to items I wear on a regular basis except that this means I have eliminated some of my options. I litterally had a little meltdown this weekend when I could not for the life of me find anything I wanted to wear. Thats how bad my rut is! Haha

I think it might kind of fun to force myself to come up with  some new outfits. So when I debut some of my new refashions and sewing projects I am going to show you how I will actually wear it (accessories, shoes, etc.) for two different looks.

Remember a while ago I posted a polka dot skirt I thrifted for a buck at Goodwill and was working on a redo for it.

This is the finished product made from Butterick 5486.

And here is what it came from.

The print is a small polka dot.

Here is a couple ways I could wear this versatile little number. Since is still pretty much hot as blazes here in the desert, sandals and a little cardigan work perfect for daytime.

And for a cooler night or an outfit for a bit later into Arizona’s “winter”, I could pair the dress with tights, boots, and a striped cardigan.

That was fun! Well at least it was for me!

    I totally know what you are talking about! I get into funks with my wardrobe, too. It seems to be a mood thing for me. Some days I just don’t like anything I own. Mostly, I think I’m just not great at putting stuff together. Then all of sudden I’ll realize I can wear A with B. And boom! I have something interesting to wear.

    You did a great job on that skirt! (Now dress). I love that stripped cardigan and I really liked the options that you showed of how to wear the outfit. I understand on feeling like I have nothing to wear, I have so many clothes that I love but I rarely have time to put a great outfit together that makes me feel great all day.
