Get out of your Winter Outfit Slump

It’s the dead of winter and I think that’s also a metaphor for the death of my outfit creativity. I feel like I’m wearing the same outfits over and over and I can’t seem to get out of this slump. I’ve noticed other bloggers and social media people talking about being in a slump and I couldn’t really find any articles or posts on how to get out of one. I thought I would share some tips on how to finally get out of that damn slump! These have all worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Share in the comments what you do to get out of your outfit slump.

  • paint your nails (even if your clothes are the same, your nails can change every week)
  • re-organize your closet (you may find items you forget about and fall back in love with them)
  • take the afternoon to go through your clothes and style outfits you have never worn before and try them on (you’ll find some unusual combinations that you will love)
  • search tumblr and pinterest for #street-style pics that are sure to inspire
  • go to the mall! see whats in the windows, hot new colours, patters, fabrics and choose one peice to buy that will spice of your wardrobe for the rest of winter
  • try out new beauty looks, a statement lip can change the style of your entire outfit
  • go back to basics; white tee, jeans, boots, sweater, and add your own style to them (this gives you a solid foundation where you can add whatever you want to them)

Let me start off by saying that wearing these jeans on a day where the weather was like -100 degrees, was a horrible idea. I do it for the fashion and I’m sure many of you can relate..lol (especially my fellow Toronto/NYC bloggers).

Lately, I’ve been liking the idea of wearing oversized layers, and it helps when the weather is extremely cold. It’s fun to mix up patterns, fabrics and textures to create a look with depth. I’ve worn this tank and sweater combo before, with leather leggings, but this time I wanted a more grunge/loose/casual style. And what bottoms came to mind? BOYFRIEND JEANS.. DUH!! The bagginess of the jeans and the size of the rips played into the style I was going for. I had to throw on a hat or else I think my head was going to freeze off so I hope you like my ‘salt and pepper’ matching.. ha..ha…

The Sad Truth

I thought it would be funny to do a comical post about the sad truth of being a fashion blogger in the dead of Winter. If you live in a city or town where you actually endure the four seasons, then you can relate. Being January 31st, in Canada, it is near the middle of Winter and it is so cold outside that you need to wear like five layers and have no skin showing. It doesn’t matter if it’s sunny outside because the wind will make it 10x more cold. If it sounds like I’m complaining, I am.

If you’re a fashion blogger in a city or town that endures the four seasons then you definitely can relate. Trying to shoot pictures of your outfit is hard; you can try to bare the cold and take off your winter coat outside or go inside where the backgrounds, most likely, aren’t as cool. So here comes the sad truth, if I was going to do outfit posts they would look like this (for the most part) everyday… lol. #livingintorontofashionbloggerproblems

Getting a coffee is a must, everyday, or multiple times a day. Cinnamon dolce lattes are my fav.

Winter Basics

Lately, all I’ve been wanting to wear is basic tees, leather leggings, skinny jeans, long cardigan and layered outfits. It may have something to do with the fact that it is freezing outside and I have to admit, it’s hard to put outfits together in the winter. If it’s icy outside, you have to wear shoes that won’t slip or get ruined by the salt and you have to cover every inch of your skin so you don’t get frostbite. Needless to say, winter sucks sometimes!

 When getting dressed in the morning, I realized that I don’t really have the basics that I need. I’ve been looking online for what I want and I thought I would share with you guys some winter basics to have if you live in a cold climate, like me. Of course, make these basics your own style and choose colours you love, shapes that suit your body and layer how you like.

Lighter Days

If you have seen my latest Current Obsession post, I am IN LOVE with cowl/turtle necks this season. They are so comfy and cozy for the lazy days and you can even dress them up over top of a mini skirt. Of course, I had to buy this one when I saw it, in multiple colours; pink and black. The black is the first colour I was set on, obv, but I wanted to change it up and try out a lighter colour, the pink is so feminine and classy.

I paired my sweater with ripped denim because I wanted the look to be very casual. Plus, the colour of the denim and the pink go so well together. Going along with the femininity of the sweater, I wore a red lip to finish the look.

I havn’t worn these boots in forever! And now I know why, my poor little toes get so squished. Sad face. I couldn’t help but wear them because the sparkles are just right for the holiday season and the ankle bootie looks great with cuffed jeans.

Black Winter

When I think of winter, I think of creamy whites, bright reds and shimmering golds. However, when I get dressed for the winter, I think of black. Every women has most likely gone through a stage where all she wore was black, I am still in that stage and have no desire to ever leave it. Let me know if you’re still in this stage as well!

Today, I had to run a few errands and wanted to wear something comfy, but definitely warm. Leather leggings are a staple this winter because they go with EVERYTHING! I mean everything. I wore my super comfy mohair sweater, in other words, my super comfy, fuzzy sweater. Recently, I have been liking the style of showing my socks off, I find it adds a cute touch to my outfits and layers are great for the colder months. If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen that I am loving my paisley scarf this season. I actually bought it around three years ago and I love that I can still rock it today. Shades of pink have been my favourite colour for winter (besides black) and I love that it adds a subtle pop of colour to my outfits.

 Let me know what your favourite winter colour is this season in the comments.
