Inspiration ~ Fashion

I have recently been very inspired by fashion.  I love being creative with it and seeing how others do the same.  It is fun to think that there is no box, you do what you want and what makes you feel good and then you rock it, girl!

I was able to add a little bit to my wardrobe at the beginning of summer but now nearing the end and coming up on our move, I must.stop.shopping.  I don't want to get in the habit of always wanting more, never being satisfied with what I have.  So that's it.  I am going to take Kendra's 30x30 challenge.  I am taking 30 pieces of my current Wardrobe and remixing them.  I am gonna try to be creative, think outside the box and I am excited about it.  Most importantly, no shopping!!  Little lesson on being content!

Here is what I wore when it was like 100 degrees outside and I watched my beautiful, little niece.  If I ever needed a confirmation I don't want 3 kids, that was it.  Not because she was bad, she wasn't.  Just because I clearly can't handle it.  And that's okay.
Tae snapped some of these for me
This is what I wore to the beach.  This and another outfit I didn't take a picture in.  That is going to be the biggest challenge, taking a picture in each outfit! 

We were trying to teach Tae how to boogie board, he wasn't having it.  I forget sometimes, the kid is 4. 

Now for some lovely fall fashion that I might buy after my 30 days is up.  It's called planning ahead, thank.you.very.much.

Love the tall boots, as you can see. 

And the loose shirt over a tighter tank. So cute.

I particularly love this.  Comfy, cute, stylish.  My kind of outfit.  Love the scarf.

Now for some impractical outfits. But also completely lovely.

Like seriously?  I am racking my brain to find a time and a place appropriate for this skirt.  Gorgeous.

So beautiful.  And maybe not entirely impractical, but with two little boys that have no concept of dirty hands, just not gonna happen.

This is not as impractical, super cute.  I am just not that fancy and don't need fancy clothes.  But I should probably have it in my wardrobe, right?  Ya, I thought so.

What inspires you when it comes to fashion?  Celebrities, magazines, 'normal' people, fashion bloggers, all of the above?  What is your style?  And if you have kids, do you still find time to wear a cute, impractical skirt now and then?  {Seriously looking for an excuse!}
