since buying a house, i'm on a slightly tighter budget. i'll be the first to admit that it's difficult to start a new season in all old items. being creative? it doesn't come easy when you aren't inspired or motivated. i've been allowing myself to buy a few items, but i make sure they're pieces i really love and that have versatility for me. i've been addicted to polyvore lately, to help me figure out some new outfit inspirations before i decide to splurge and order something.
i did order the gourd garden dress, and i have some similar shoes and accessories to what i've included in this set, but i still add some extras in case i would choose to purchase more for the dress.
another one i did with the gourd garden dress, but with items i own or own similar to:
i ordered these plaid shorts from asos. they were on my want list since last year, and they are on sale right now, so i'm glad i waited!
i caved and ordered the minnetonka boots! i have everything else, or similar, in this set to create this whole look
and lastly... i've been wanting some floral pants, but i didn't feel they were a logical purchase now that it's coming into fall and they're very summery. i thought i'd see if i could find a pair and try to get some fall inspiration with them. result? success! i think they'll be my next purchase with a few similar pieces to what i've included here:
if you're having trouble putting together outfits or finding inspiration, i think this is a great way to get some real visuals.
