Creative State of Mind | Outfit

blue-pattern-mix-outfit-01This outfit is far from the Coachella looks that are probably filling up your blog reader today. It actually looks pretty far off from the beautiful spring-like weather we’re having, too!

I’ve found that I love what I’m wearing more when when I’m in a creative state of mind rather than a rushed one. A couple weeks ago, when snow was still sticking around, I was playing around in my closet and came up with whatever this look is.

The top and skirt were actually thrifted at the same time and I had a feeling I would mix them together in the future. How right was I?

    I looooove that skirt. And I agree with you; I always like my style better when I have time to just be creative and not feel rushed to choose something. Of course, when I feel rushed I usually choose jeans and whatever shirt covers my belly, which is not really my style at all. I’ve been vowing lately to be more true to what I feel best in (retro looks), especially now that I’ve got a haircut I can style more to my liking. So we’ll see if that actually happens.

    • I know the jeans + tee routine all too well! I’ve actually been conditioning myself to grab leggings + dresses/short tunics as my quick alternative. That way at least I’m wearing a dress and it looks 90% more put together than jeans.

      Good luck with your new hair! I’m positive the right haircut can make a world of difference when it comes to expressing a personal style. 🙂

  • I always love your style – it’s so fun!
    Also, I was wondering, at the sidebar it says you’re a ‘stay at home daughter’. What is one of those?! It has always baffled me! Haha!

    • Thank you so much!

      Haha.. well, it was sort of an inside joke with my brother. He said I’m like a “stay at home mother” except I don’t have kids and I live with my mom. Hence the title “stay at home daughter”. I just do everything from the comfort of my house!

      • Ohhh, I understand! I just had never heard it before, so was confuzzled, haha! A stay at home daughter must be fun! I wanna be one of those! 😉

        • I don’t blame you since I made it up! I think I’m the first of it’s kind. lol

  • Such a cute outfit! I love how springy you managed to look even though there was still snow on the ground.

    Hope everything is nice and melted for you by now! 😉

    This is so cute! I also love the different style shots! They look so cool!

    I feel like you fit in so perfectly with the icy background.

  • So adorable! That shirt is perfection! Polka dots are my jam. And when they are with florals? It can’t get much better than that.

    I honestly need more color in my life. It’s driving me crazy that I haven’t added new things to the swap group with more color! Mint is one of my new must haves, along with tan, pink, yellow, and cream. They’re quickly becoming my new favorite colors and I just want to wear them all the time even though i have none of that in my closet. Lol

    PS- thank you for mentioning that you somewhat planned this outfit ahead of time. I need to do this.

    • For every one planned outfit, there is one month of unplanned-rushed-last-minute outfits. lol
