I love her blog posts, especially the way she solicits ideas from readers while putting together new and interesting outfits. I was absolutely ecstatic at the idea of her coming to take a look at my drab wardrobe.
We started looking through some sweater and pants combos, perfect for the current temperatures. I had some burgundy pants that I got from Loft that I wasn't quite sure what to wear with them (top and middle row, middle photos) and now I have quite a few ideas!
I have a skirt that I got on clearance from J Crew that I absolutely love but it is too long. I never thought to get it hemmed until now! I'm looking forward to wearing it in the spring, after I drop it off to the seamstress first...
Erin was also able to work in some fun spring looks as I brought out some floral skirts and dresses, as well as my baby blue pants (bottom row). She also gave some great tips that I plan on incorporating in the months to come. (She also helped encourage me to get rid of a pair of gauchos that I had been holding on for way too long. Remember gauchos? The pants that look like a dress/skirt? Mine were from the spring of 2007. YIKES!)
I kept bringing out things I didn't wear and Erin always had an outfit in mind with the items I had. I mean, she really has a talent for this stuff! I'm so glad she has a fashion blog (in addition to her running blog) so I can follow along and maybe come up with some decent ideas on my own. If you are feeling tired and bored with your wardrobe (which seems to happen more often in the winter), I would highly recommend a closet consultation with Erin! Thanks again to Erin for coming all the way to my neck of the woods, giving my wardrobe a breath of fresh air and a fresh set of eyes! Pepper loved having you too. :)
Now that I have some actual ideas on outfits, I may be doing some more "Fashion Friday" posts! That is, on weeks where we don't wear jeans every day (like this past week). Have you ever had someone come over to help you with outfit suggestions? I did this a lot in college and when I had a roommate. But these days, not really. I was happy for the advice and help!
