How many times have you woken up in the morning, walked into your closet and said “I have nothing to wear,” even though your closet is full of wonderful clothes to wear? This happens to me so many times that I would be embarrassed to put a real number on it. Just ask my husband, he’s a numbers guy, so he may actually have the real number (And, Honey, I don’t want to know). Of course, that statement is soon followed by “I need to go shopping asap!” He just patiently listens until my little “fashion fit” is over. We always laugh about it after the fact, but it’s “real” to me in the moment. To a girl who LOVES fashion, it’s a crisis, even though deep down I know it’s not.
I love my clothes, I truly do, but let’s face it, we all get bored with them sometimes. And, sometimes, all we need is to do is to plan a little bit better. And, especially on those mornings where you don’t want to/have time to think about putting your look together.
So, if you follow me on instagram, you will know that I have been putting together outfits. It’s called “Plan Your Look” with Fancy Says Have A Ball. It’s a simple way to get inspired with clothes you already have in your closet. Just call me your “online stylist!” I love putting “looks” together, and even more so, if I am helping you, too. You’ll get a preview of each week’s outfits, if you follow me on instagram.
Some of the pieces I have owned for many years, and some I have just added to my closet. It’s fun to mix the old with the new, and it’s even better when it something all new! Every week, I plan to post several of my “plan your looks” on the blog. It might help you on those days where you want to look your best, but can’t see past getting your first cup of coffee in hand, and your long to-do list.
I plan to include outfits for any occasion you may have to attend. Whether it’s for work, church, a play date, a girls night out, or a date night. My hope is that you can find inspiration to go back and “shop” in your closet, and get ready with confidence!
This look would be great for a date night, church, or a night out with your girls! You could add a blazer to it, and a pair of flats to make it a work look.
This would be great for work, church, or a date night. Change out the tote for a clutch at night. An all black outfit is so chic, no matter what the occasion.
If your office has “casual” Fridays, this would be cute for work. It’s also a great look for the weekend, running errands, brunch, play dates or a movie date night.
This look is perfect for work, a date night or girls night out.
Another great look for work (you could add a cardigan or blazer), a cookout, a date night, brunch or even a play date.
Perfect for running errands, a play date or brunch.
A dress is so simple to dress up or down. The flats make it perfect for work or a play date. Add heels, and it’s a casual date night look.
I hope y’all found this helpful. I now have no excuse for the next week to say “I have nothing to wear!”
