by Working Girl One
If you're anything like me, at least twice a week you stand in front of your closet, throw your arms up in defeat and declare "I hate all of my clothes!"
OK, fine, more like four times a week.
I love shopping and I love buying new clothes, but I'm terrible -- and always have been -- at putting outfits together. I blame this on the fact that most of my time growing up was spent in my Catholic school uniform. I pretended like I hated every moment of wearing that thing, but I loved wearing it. Love, love, loved it.
Unfortunately, my job does not come with a uniform. In fact, my company is known for it's fashion magazines. I thought I knew what it felt like to be self-conscious about your clothes, but it wasn't until I stepped into the elevators at my company and received the up-and-down from a group of girls, that I truly knew.
So, what's a Working Girl to do? Turn to the internet, of course. I have a few favorite fashion bloggers that I love and turn to often for outfit inspiration:
Jessica Quirk of What I Wore:
Jessica has been documenting her outfits for four years, and while her closet is probably 17 times the size of mine, her posts help me to find several uses for one piece and often inspire me to go digging in my closet for a piece I forgot I had.
Maegan Tintari of ...love Maegan:
Maegan's posts not only inspire me to have fun with my clothes and put together outfits for work and play, her DIY posts are fun and easy to follow. I recently followed her DIY to make a long skirt out of a too-short maxi dress.
Anh of 9to5Chic:
What I would give to look this put together 24/7. Anh is a 9 to 5 girl (just like us!) and posts her work outfits along with her more causal weekend outfits. I may just have to copy this look sometime this week:
Tall Girl Tales:
I wouldn't be a savvy Working Girl if I didn't try to catch a sale or two as I try to expand my wardrobe. For an almost daily list of online and in-store sales, I turn to Tall Girl Tales, who also shares her favorite fashion finds and daily outfits.
Those are my go-tos ladies. Anyone else I need to add to my list? I need all the help I can get.
