Style file: Winter outfit inspiration, part 1

Image via

You guys, in the past few weeks, I got into a total style slump. I feel like all I've been wearing lately are sweaters, jeans and winter boots (and don't even get me started on my brand new love affair with sweats!?! But only at home of course: I would never ever wear those in public :). I haven't put together an outfit post in forever, and unfortunately, I must admit that I'm not even motivated to do so. My problem is, I guess, my overflowing closet, in a desperate need of cleaning out and editing (it's on my to do list, I promise). Since I've pretty much lost track of half the things living in there, I find myself reaching for the same old favorites morning after morning after morning. The fact that I'm waking up at 5.30am on workdays definitely doesn't help. Between making breakfast for the whole family and painting something presentable on my face, I don't really have the necessary motivation to spend 20 minutes in front of my wardrobe putting tohether some kind of "wow" outfit.

But all this is about to change, since exactly this morning I've reached the point where I'm absolutely fed up with my lack of imagination in the style department. Next time I see myself in the mirror wearing a jeans & sweater combo, I'll probably scream :) To spare me the morning closet dramas, I've decided to start preparing my outfits the night before. And of course, to come up with something more interesting than another "comfy chic" pairing, I've scoured my favortie style blogs for a healthy dose of sartorial inspiration. I could see myself wearing any of these outfits, but of course, I'll have to show a bit more discipline!

Now tell me, do you ever get into winter style rut? What do you do to overcome it? Where do you look for inspiration? Or, on the contrary, do you embrace it? I would love to know!
