Help! I think I’m stuck in a style rut! Looking at all the outfits I’ve worn so far this month I’ve really been gravitating towards white, navy, and black. At least today I wore this mint colored cardigan, right?

In all honesty, I put this outfit together just so I could wear these shoes. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter I was trying to decide between two pairs of Sole Society shoes. I ended up ordering them both. Turns out the adorable pair with the leopard print are just too high of a heel for me. The heel was 4 1/4” with a 1/2” platform which I thought would make it manageable. Sadly, no. However, this navy pair has a much more reasonable heel height of 3”. That’s definitely more my speed.

So, since it’s Friday I wanted an outfit where I could wear my new navy heels and jeans. White jeans? I may be in a style rut but hopefully it’s a cute style rut!

And in case you want more proof, here are a few other ways I’ve worn this cardigan. With white. And black. And navy. I’ve got to get some new ideas.

    This is a seriously cute rut to be in! But I hear you, it seems like I’m wearing nothing but blues lately (I think I posted about that a couple months ago – it hasn’t gotten any better). I wonder why we gravitate toward certain color schemes like that? Stick with what works?

    First things first: The shoes. Fab! It’s soooooo hard to find cute navy shoes. They look great on you!

    And second: You’ve been looking as cute as always to me! But I took a quick look through my archives, and I’ve paired my light blue/mint cardigan with dark pink/berry & orange here at http://librarianforlifestyle.wordpress.com/2012/06/06/colorfully-casual/ . I’ve also paired it with stripes of green, blue, and olive here at http://librarianforlifestyle.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/snow-cone-summer/ :D

    I think you look great. Those shoes are adorable!
    That being said, I can sympathize about the style rut. I haven’t been feeling very inspired recently either. I find that re-organizing one element of my wardrobe – clothing, shoes, accessories, etc – often helps get me out of a rut. I normally find a few things I haven’t worn in ages/forgot I had and then try to incorporate these piece into my day-to-day look.

      I really should go through my closet again and see if there are items I don’t feel are “me” anymore. Maybe pairing it down will actually get me out of my rut!
