Go To Style?

So lately I have been trying to sleep in to the very last moment to make sure I can catch as much zzz as possible. Seriously, baby girl has got me up every night at 5 am. With this happening, I don't give myself much time to get ready. Sadly, I feel like I have just been resorting to my usual go to staples, not really caring about what I am wearing and not really putting as much effort into the way I look (well, except my hair. I still try and curl it as much as possible). For me, my go to style has been what I wore during my breastfeeding days: skinny jeans, a black tank top and a cardi. Although, now it is getting so hot that I don't really want to wear the cardigan, but its the only color I actually put on. (that is why you do not see any "what I was wearing" post lately)

I also have just gotten rid of half my closet (more like just sitting in trash bags in our bedroom until I have the time to sell it). With half  of my wardrobe gone I feel even more in a rut. James promised that if I were to sell the clothes I don't want or just don't fit into anymore that I could use ALL of that money to purchase more items that  I have been wanting/needing. The problem I had was I was getting tons of clothes that were cute, but made cheaply and they wouldn't last long. Now I am realizing that it's not the quantity of clothes, but the quality. Which leads me to a totally different question: How do you feel about people selling their gently used clothing on their blogs? I am seriously thinking of doing this as our 2 local buffalo exchanges are full to the max right now so they haven't been accepting very much.




Anyone else in a style rut lately? What are your go to style staples when your in a rush? Any tips for getting pretty that is fast and easy?

I've seen so many bloggers sell their clothing either directly from their blog or through a Big Cartel shop. As long as there isn't anything wrong with them then I honestly don't see a problem with it.

I think selling your clothes on a blog is fine.

My go-to style staples are definitely skinny jeans and a muted coloured top. If it's during the summer I just trade the skinny jeans for shorts. I've been on a dress kick lately, but whenever I am in a rush that the last piece of clothing on my mind.

I've seen a lot of bloggers do a "shop my closet" post and sell their clothes. I think its an awesome idea.

I've been in a rut too, but when I am I like to go looking at modcloth clothes, and check out style posts from loveelycia's blog.

I sell my on ebay and put a link from my blog to my ebay items. Works out pretty nicely and you might get more than your asking price on ebay! Good Luck!
