Stuck in a Rut

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut? I am deeply entrenched in a clothes rut. After wearing through my closet a few months back, I was excited to re-discover many great things in my closet. Problem is, I basically took some of those pieces and turned them into my new normal, my rut.

No matter what I do, I find myself wearing the same things over and over. I become obsessed with one pair of jeans in my closet and wear them day after day even though I have plenty of others. I put on the same coat for weeks…usually the once closest the front door. I wear the same shoes every day. So really, when you think about it, I only change my shirt every day! And even then, I am probably rotating through the same few shirts!

Its as if I am not motivated. I am. Well, I want to be. I just find something that works and stick with it, over and over and over again. Well, I also find something that is comfortable, easily washable and can get baby spit up & snot on it and still be fine.

I want to look like I try. I don’t want to look like I just rolled out of bed and chose the closest thing to me to throw on and leave the house. Maybe it’s time to wear through my closet again. Or maybe it is also time to move to some warmer weather where I don’t have to wear the same three sweaters over and over and always leave the house with a winter coat on!

P.S. Last night we went out baby free for the first time since July. We went to celebrate our friend’s birthday. In honor of the occasion, I got dressed up…strapless bra, jewelry and all. It felt great!
