Firsts: Innovative Outfits!

As part of my new years resolutions, creating Innovative Outfits fits into about 3 of my goals…

With the wonderful popularity of sites like Pinterest and Polyvore, there is never an excuse for wearing adorable and stylish outfits. However, I promised myself that this year would be the year of my financial success, which has to include cutting back on spending in order to save. And what is the most obvious place to start cutting back? Well, unfortunately for a self-proclaimed fashionista like myself, that place is clothes… and shoes… and sweaters… and SADDNESS!! Right?

WRONG! After spending a sad Sunday flipping through adorable outfits on my Pinterest boards, I started realizing that I have almost every piece of clothing that I saw in some of my favorite outfits! It may not be exactly the same, but close enough to make the outfits work, and to look up-to-date, modern, and fashion forward just by pairing things together that are in my closet, that I never would have thought to. BINGO!!

So in my attempts to make a weekly blog post, I will now be including my outfit inspirations, and the result from my wardrobe. And I challenge everyone who reads this post to do the same! Go through your closet. Toss (or donate!) things you know you’ll never wear again, and then start looking closer at what pieces you have. You’d be amazed at what you can put together to make the most fantastic outfits!

So stay tuned!! Starting this week – I will post my outfits, my inspirations, and where to purchase posted items. I know, I know, I said don’t spend… but sometimes purchasing those classic pieces in the perfect style and fit, means an addition that will last for years! Just don’t go out and purchase that SWEET hot pink feather dress. I promise you will regret it. And sooner than you think… eeek!!

If at first you don’t succeed, make FASHION finance-friendly, like Jenna!
