stuck in a rut?!

If you subscribe to my newsletter - which you SHOULD (sign up here!) - you would have gotten a sneak peek at this new series here on the blog called "stuck in a rut"!

This series is where I offer updated and modern alternatives to the items in our closet that may be getting outdated! Ever find yourself grabbing for the same unflattering pieces in your closet? This new series is going to put an end to that! I will lay out common "go-to" items in your closet and suggest updated pieces to replace the outdated ones!

(details: Women's Coral Ruffled Bomber, Old Navy, $29.50, Washed Metal Corner Tote Bag, Topshop, $80, Tretorn Shoes, Delia's, $55.50)

As the temperatures warm up for spring are you turning to that same ratty hoody for a jacket? Spruce up your look with an updated jacket in a bold color and sophisticated fit. Are you still carrying a diaper bag even though you have no need for burp rags, bottles and pacifiers any more? Change it up with a classy but casual tote that is still big enough for all your essentials but keeps you looking more like a woman than a mom! Do you throw on gym shoes even when you aren't headed to the gym? Save those shoes for working out and chose a sleeker and trendier option without sacrificing comfort.

Do you have any ruts that you are in that you need help to get out of? Email me and I will try to feature it here! Stay tuned for more rut busting goodies here on the blog!

I love this jacket and bag! Being 8 months pregnant I am most definitely stuck in a rut, but at this point it isn't worth spending any money to fix it!

I am planning on using you once I have this baby and get back into shape...because as nice as it will be to get out all of my old clothes again...I know I will need a few new pieces to make everything look new again. Plus, I used to work full time in an office, so many of my clothes just won't cut it for being a new stay-at-home-mom.

What a fabulous idea! This is exactly what I need. A "swap this for that" suggestion. Thanks!!
