Beauty Week Day 4 - Fashion

Hi everyone! I am Heather from heatherlydee. A big thank you
to Michelle for having me on her blog! I am so excited to share with you all

I think it is common to get tired of what’s in your closet.
Too often I stand in front of my closet complaining that I have nothing to
wear. I have a tendency to think purchasing new clothes will fix all my
problems-not just my problems with what to wear, but life in general.
Unfortunately, a new dress won’t fix a broken heart, nor will new shoes stop me
from missing my friends.

In fact many of my troubles can be traced back to spending
too much on clothes. Living on a budget has been a struggle, but it also forces
me to be creative in my clothes choices. Participating in Kendi’s 30x30
challenge earlier this year (see here) was a great chance to experiment with my clothes
and put together new looks that I never would have thought of before.

So today I will be sharing with you seven outfits that I
made with seven pieces of clothing from my closet.

My picks:
1. Blazer- H&M $30
2. Orange Blouse- H&M $10
3. Teal Blouse- Tucker for Target $15
4. Dress- H&M $15
5. Cardigan- Forever 21 $10
6. Jeans- JBrand from Marshalls $15
7. Skirt- Merona from Target $15

*You don’t have to spend a fortune to look great.
*Experiment-try something out of your comfort zone.
*Wear your outfits with confidence.
*Share! Borrow and trade clothes with your friends/sisters/roommates.
*Accessories are your best friends.
*Regularly clean out your closet and get rid of clothes you
don’t wear.
*Save outfit inspiration. (Pinterest and Polyvore are great
for this.)
*Use other bloggers for inspiration. Some of my faves are: Syndey, Beth and Tania.

*Have fun getting dressed!

ooohh! those outfits are super cute heather :) I totally know how you feel about standing in front of your closet and feeling like you've got nothing to wear :/

I was just wondering, What would you recommend as staple pieces to keep in your closet? From your cute pics, I can see that colorful cardigans are on the list!

Thanks ladies! It was so fun putting them together!

Betsy, some of my clothing staples are dark jeans, gray vneck tshirts, a great little black dress (perfect for dressing up or down) and definitely colorful cardigans. I also think you can't go wrong with a great pair of boots and wedges.
