The Bee's Knees

Sweater: Banana Republic via Plato's Closet, $4 // Cardigan: Forever 21, $18 // Jeans: Forme, $22 // Necklace: Amanda's Boutique, gift // Boots: Target, gift // Hat: Vintage, gift

I used this outfit to show off a few of my favorite Christmas gifts, including this darling bee locket my little sister gave me. For those who don't know, I have a serious affinity for bees. Coupled with the little birds, it's just perfect. 

 Maybe the holidays threw me out of whack, but I feel like I'm in a bit of a slump. It seems like I say that a lot, huh? Often these lulls in inspiration last only a day or two, and the most effective way of combating them, for me, is acknowledgment. By proclaiming it on here, I'm much more likely to do something about it!

I did do a lot of cleaning today, which included hanging up the embarrassingly large pile of clothes that had accumulated on my bedroom floor. I rediscovered lots of stuff I haven't worn in awhile, so hopefully that'll be just the jolt I need.

After all, the fresh start of a new year is just around the corner!

Wow this outfit is so perfect! First of all, I LOVE your necklace. Second, I like how all of the colors in this outfit are so warm. The brown and orange... and it's great!

One of the things that keeps me coming back is that you are just yourself. You don't have c/o beside most of your wardrobe items....you're just really really creative and I like that!

Having said that, inspirational slumps are a fact of life for the creative mind, eh?

You know, every time you say you're in a slump and post an outfit, you look amazing. This outfit looks great, and I'm enjoying seeing you remixed this cardigan. Also, those boots are great. I never have any luck with shoes at Target.
