Moodboard Monday // My Wardrobe

A few weeks ago I read this post about the perfect wardrobe by Madelynn Furlong recently, and it inspired me. My wardrobe has always been a jumble. Full of all different styles, colours and prints, things that don't fit any more, things that look tired and faded but that I can't throw away. I have realised recently that I get emotionally attached to clothing because they remind me of a particular time time of my life. Often I don't even like them or fit in to them anymore. Although I don't think there is anything wrong with having a wardrobe that is full of a variety of styles I feel like as I grow up I DO want to refine my style. Recently I have been so motivated for a big spring clean of my wardrobe and I have already taken a lot to the charity shop...but I thought as I think about buying some new items to replace old worn and falling apart clothing it would be interesting to be a bit more intentional and careful about what I buy. Here is my mood board of where I would like to see my wardrobe going.

From these pictures I am realising that I want it to be mainly neutrals and simple colours. Black, White, Denim, Brown, Grey and Navy and white stripes, and then adding a pop of colour with accessories, bright blue shoes for example, or bright red lips/nails, or a brightly coloured clutch. My wardrobe used to full of so much colour, and don't get me wrong I love colour, but I really feel like this is where I want my style to be going. I want simpler, classic. Skinny Jeans, jumpers, t-shirts and loafers will be the staples of the wardrobe with the odd smart blouse and heals to dress it up every now and then.

It is quite interesting to think about my wardrobe in this way - a bit more thought out and planned. To see where I found all the images above check out my style board on pinterest.

I heart bobs

Ever since my hair grew longer than my shoulders I have been dreaming about cutting it into a bob. I think a bob is my favourite all time hair style. It is easy to manage, it can be feminine but not too girly and you can ruffle it up and make it look all messy and cute. So I am trying decide whether to go for it and go for the chop...because it really is rather long now. Here are some styles that look HOT!! anyone got any thoughts? keep it long a la wedding or chop it??

All of these pictures were from my style pinterest board.

Tote Bags

Yesterday Chloebean and I were discussing how much we love tote bags. She bought me THIS beauty for my birthday and I have been using it everyday (it had to go in the wash yesterday though!) Anyway after professing our love of the humble tote I discovered that Society 6 have started doing tote bags! Society 6 is a site where artists can upload artwork and then people can buy it as a print or on other various items. I am so excited to look through all the many 100's of designs but the above are a few of my favourites that I spotted right off. reading left to right you can find the above bags here: 1,2,3,4,5,6
