Today's Everyday Fashion + Win a Wallet from Thirty-One Gifts



Guys, I might be in a bit of a style rut. I think fashion is fun and usually I enjoy it but lately it's frustrating me! I'm hoping to break the streak soon; in the meantime here are two looks with my favorite baby blue shirt. I wore the top outfit for a lunch meeting and to the CFL Lady Bloggers Meetup yesterday. I don't necessarily love this outfit (although I really like the blue + burgundy color combo) and don't get me started on how not perfect the photography is (I used natural lighting as always, but the sun is only shining on the middle for some reason). The bottom outfit I photographed awhile ago, and would be really cute with nude pumps. Have you ever been in a style rut? How did you break it?

  4. I've absolutely been in a style rut before!  Usually I go 2-3 days wearing "blah" outfits, spend some time on Pinterest or reading fashion magazines and then get excited to style some new outfits - OR head to the mall (but that can be dangerous).  

    My sister is a big fan of 31, great company!

  12. I love 31! Joined Ashley's FB page...and thanks for the chance to win. As for the style rut question......I have been in a style run most of my life until I happened apon your blog. :) now even my daughter comments how cute I look. Thanks for the realistic everyday fashion inspiration!

  15. Hi there! I was so excited to see you come to Kansas City for that segment (I live in KC!)! Great job! Your site has inspired me OUT of a fashion rut and I always look to you for how to pair things. I do have a question: how do you know when to pair black or brown accessories (shoes, belt, purse, etc.) with your outfit? I pair black heels with everything from work to play and I've noticed many girls wear brown instead with colors I thought you could only wear black with. I'm going out on a limb here, but if you're in a rut right now and aren't wild about outfit posts, maybe you could do a post explaining how to pair colors and accessories? Like, wear brown heels with this set of colors and black with this set? And throw a wild card color in? Thanks for all you do!

  19. I have heard a lot of great things about 31, would love the chance to get to try it out!  About every other week I feel like I am in a style rut and I typically sift through pinterest and look for styles with items that I have.  I look for "lace skirt" and find all different kind of outfits that I never thought of, if that doesn't help inspire me I try and look around the city and see what new trends are coming around.

  21. Great wallet--would love one, I've been looking for something like that but havent been able to find the right one.  Thanks for introducing me to 31 Gifts!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I feel like I've been in a style rut for 5 years :)  It's hard having a job that basically has a uniform.  It's easy to get lazy and not put in the extra effort when I'm dressing for things that aren't work related.
    Maybe I'll head over to 31 Gifts and find something inspiring!  I've heard a lot about them, but haven't checked them out yet.

  26. Love 31 gifts !! Thanks for the giveaway :) I joined Ashley's group also! It doesn't appear to me that you are in a style rut. I think a good way to get out of a style rut is to buy a few new accessories. They always inspire new outfits for me!

  32. Love wallets with straps.  Perfect to use everyday to throw in my workbag. And I feel you on the fashion rut.  I think for me it's the weather change, its so gray in Michigan and I have to force myself to add in color everyday or I'd only wear grey and black.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi! I love your blog and your ideas. I especially love that you discuss fashion ruts and being frugal. I'm a single mom and I don't have a lot of extra money to buy new things all the time...thus, being frugal and fashion ruts are to be expected. However, reading your blog has made me look at my closet differently and I have paired colors that I would never have considered. Thanks!! Love the waller...it's super cute!

  37. Ok, so I've been in a fashion rut lately too, but last night my brain was just exploding with ideas! My advice is to just give yourself an hour (maybe put on some holiday music) and go shopping in your own closet. Last night I just tried on a bunch of outfits and hung them up 'ready to wear' in my closet. I tried to pair things together I've never worn in the same outfit before.
    Hope that maybe helps! And btw, I love the blue and burgandy combo!!

  40. I recently was in a fashion rut, and for me, thinking a lot about fashion only made it worse. The thing that usually snaps me out of it is doing something different that will stimulte my brain, like going to an art museum, trying a new recipie, or even just people-watching. I love your lavender, blue, and cream combination!

    ReplyDelete
  41. J, quick question...you said you typically size up with your American Eagle jeans, right? I just noticed they have extra longs! yey :) my long legs (36" inseam) are excited.  Your jeans always seem to look like they fit great so I think I will try ordering from there.

    And how do I break style ruts?? Your blog! And the several other blogs I follow religiously.  I'm always able to find great inspirations from them all.

  42. Trying to help you in your style rut here. I noticed you do a ton of coloring-blocking. I would shop for/wear some things with texture, patterns, stripes, etc.

  47. I love this suggestion! I tend to tire of patterns after only one or two wears, but I did recently pick up some more polka dots and stripes, which are patterns I don't tire of as quickly. Now to figure out what in the world to wear them with... :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Alyson, I love American Eagle jeans but the sizing tends to be back and forth - about half of mine are my regular size 2, and the other half are a 4. And thank you for the kinds words!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Stephanie, thanks for the kind words and this is a great suggestion!! This reminds me of my post on how to wear black and brown together (http://www.jseverydayfashion.com/2011/04/flashback-friday-black-and-brown.html) but I've never done one on what shoes to wear with what. I'll give it some more thought and add it to my list of possible posts, thank you!

  50. I can't imagine you ever being in a style rut! You look awesome! The burgundy/light blue combo looks awesome! Also, thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity! I just joined ashley's group, and I hope I get lucky =D

  51. Thanks J for all that you do! And good luck to me on winning that wallet!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Even though it doesn't look like you're in a rut, I can believe that it feels like it. When I am in a rut, I will go back to basics, and just wear what I know and am comfortable with -- with no creativity involved (for me, blue jeans and a sweater, e.g.). This gives me a chance to recharge my batteries. If that doesn't work, you could also try challenging yourself to wear things you haven't worn in a long time, or build an outfit around one piece (e.g., a scarf). Best wishes!

  75. This is too funny because I just took two trips to cold-weather climates and used EVERY piece of cold-weather clothing I have, and posted at least 20 outfits on the blog. What you've seen the past month with all the boots and coats... that's pretty much it for my closet. Now that I'm back in Florida the warmer weather clothes are coming back out! Sorry!

  82. 'Love the Timeless Wallet from Thirty-One Gifts............ (i.e., the wallet's pattern/style really IS "timeless"!!)............ and I also greatly admire the Company Mission of Thirty-One Gifts, too!!: 
    About Us

    Your burgundy + pale blue + cream outfit is *really pretty*!!    Although I don't have to "dress" for work everyday, (i.e., I have an in-home office), I sometimes feel like I'm in a real style RUT, too!!    Since I love *Nature*~~(and often use flower photos, always giving source credit, in online correspondence with my faraway family members/longtime friends)~~I'll occasionally Google something like, say, "BURGUNDY AND BLUE flower images."    It's interesting to then see how many not only "Real Flowers" are there;  but also how much "Outfit Inspiration," too, (i.e., and often more uniquely-different outfits/accessories THAN from simply Searching for a specific piece/style of clothing or accessories)!!    Googling "Blue and Burgundy flower images" will result in totally  d.i.f.f.e.r.e.n.t.  images;  but it's just fun/creative/inspiring to *choose* any two colors............ and do a "flower images" Search............ i.e., EVEN FOR Outfit Inspiration, J.!!

  84. Fashion ruts are the worst! My recommendation would be to try to shake up your sillhouettes a little bit. I love skinny jeans, but I think it's super cool to mix in a wide-leg trouser or classic bootcut every now and then to shake it up. Keep up the good work - your clothes are adorable!

  91. I am in a style rut mainly as it is so cold and as much as I want to wear cute skirts the walk to school is just too chilly! I know I should suck it up but I really think I should live somewhere a lot warmer :P

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi, J! I totally feel you on the style rut. That's when I usually end up changing my hair, playing around more with makeup, or going out of my normal fashion comfort zone (which you are very good at facilitating!). I'll also pop into different stores than I normally shop at to see if maybe there are things I've been missing out on. Watching "What Not to Wear" is helpful too. :)
    I was also wondering if those Nine West pumps you're wearing in the top outfit are comfortable. They're an extra 30% off right now and I could definitely use some new neutral pumps, but I need to be able to move and groove in them. Thanks for your help!

    ReplyDelete
  93. This is awesome advice, thank you! And yes I've been obsessed with these shoes since I got them. I have spent hours in them and as far as heeled pumps go, they are really comfy. (not as comfy as flats obviously) I might check out the sale, I have been wanting them in other colors!

  105. Absolutely love your blog. You give great inspiration on outfits and I love seeing what you come up with each day. All your jewelry is gorgeous as well and I have bought a few items from where you have said you got them. The wallet shown is also very nice. I wish I had have your enthusiasm (and time!) for pairing outfits so well!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love your blog. I check it out everyday. You maybe in a style rut because you need a change of scenery or a new inspiration.  It maybe time to travel to an undiscovered state or country and walk around the different areas. Sometimes I scan the fashion websites and go to some repeated areas, but when i get the opportunity or create an opportunity to escape to unfamiliar territory, it does your mind and body good...like milk:)

  119. I love seeing the necklace with that neckline in photo 1.  Speaking of being in a rut, I realized I would have never tried that necklace with that shirt because I assumed that shirt could only take a short (under the shirt) option.  This looks great.  Thanks as always for your great ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Can't wait to see what you come up with. ;) p.s. my entire wardrobe is made of stripes and dots and gingham. I tire of other busy patterns quickly, too.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I get soooo many ideas from you...thanks!!! Your blogs always helps me get out of ruts because you are always trying something different while still being affordable! I actually really like the photography you use over other fashion blogs because it looks real and easy to see how you put everything together. Thanks for all the ideas!!

    ReplyDelete
  122. We all have ruts J!!!  I love the black ensemble & can't help but wonder how that blue would look with the black jeans and heels?   Hmmmmmm....ruts deserve ice cream or a run.  I'm opting for a run.

  123. I would love to win that wallet!! Looks adorable

  124. Love this look today! Everyone goes through these phases......it's part of life.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Great post today!
    I joined the group, looking forward to the giveway! I really love the top look, both outfits have nice subtle colors and simple pieces that I love.
    Normally when I'm in a style rut I go online and start looking through all sorts of fashion blogs-especially yours!- and find new outfits that I love. I try to find an outfit that excites me and then try to match the attitude of it as best I can. Sometimes buying one new piece, like a sweater or pants, can inspire new outfit ideas too!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Love the baby blue mixed with burgundy! I just got a silk sleeveless top and would love to wear in a similar color combo.

    Let me just say, since I found your blog via Pinterest, I've spent several nights reading old posts! It's inspired me to buy pink jeans and a baby blue top, and use them to create new color combos from other things in my closet I'd forgotten about. LOVE your blog!

    I've also clothes wish list, based on key pieces for outfits I like best :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love the top outfit and the bottom one with the polka dotted scarf.  I think clothing looks good on you/and you know how to pick it so that it fits well, because you sure look great in your outfits.  I really like a lot of the color and pattern combinations that you choose.

  130. I love your look. When i am in a style rut I challenge myself to pair items together that I never have worn before. Sometimes you are surprised how great they turn out. Go shopping inyour closet!

  147. I LOVE that pastel pinspired outfit! That is one of my favorite outfits that you've posted in a while. You could try wearing something really girly with lace and bows to get you out of your rut. You mostly wear a lot of colored denim lately I think, not as many girly (non-pencil) skirts.
