Marsala & Olive

Some days we strategically plan out outfits and shoot locations, and other days we have a cute outfit on and scramble to find a location that works. Today was definitely the latter of the two options as we were driving to lunch and took photos near our favorite hibachi restaurant, which happened to be beside a liquor store. So conveniently we had some interesting people watching opportunities while trying to snap some quick shots before lunch. #noshame


Vest: Olive rivet vest {eBay Find & only $21.99!!} | Shirt: LOFT Bateau Tee | Jeans: Old Navy Midrise Rockstar Jeans | Boots: Ivanka Trump Frankly Boots {on sale for $69.97} | Necklace: Stella & Dot Rebel Cluster Necklace | Hat: Leith Floppy Hat | Bracelets: Olive + Piper {sold out} | Watch: Vince Camuto Rose Gold Pyramid Watch

I've had the hardest time getting dressed in the mornings as of late. My outfit creativity had hit an all-time low and I've resorted to only wearing outfits that consist of jeans and a t-shirt–just call me fashion challenged. Is anybody else having this problem!? This always seems to happen to me as the season change. My mornings consist of do my makeup and then taking nearly 15 minutes to stare aimlessly into my closet. I then end up grabbing the first thing that I see and go from there. Ugh! Finally today I was able to at least put a cute fall look together. I'm somewhat obsessed with the color combo of olive and, well, anything so this was and easy pick for me this morning. I'm definitely in need of some inspiration. What are your tricks to becoming outfit inspired again!?

  1. I think we all fall in slumps of not wanting to put forth effort into our look for awhile. I am getting out of those now. You just have to figure out a way to get inspired.

  10. This is a great color combo! When I get in a rut I force myself to put some outfits together ahead of time so I can get my inspiration back.

    1. That's a very good point! I really should be better about putting things together at night instead of scrambling in the morning.

  15. I love this outfit! I totally get you on the bring uninspired thing. I go through phases in my creativity also...sometimes it's the weather, sometimes I'm just tired and need a break. Take some time to recharge your batteries and you're creativity will be back before you know it! ..but I still think it's a cute outfit :-)

    1. I definitely think it's time for a reboot, that's for sure. :) I think part of the problem is that I wait to think about what I'm wearing in the morning and then I'm in a rush and end up throwing on a basic and heading out the door.
