Pardon me while I take a moment out of the Take One, Pass it On Challenge to tell you about something I think you’ll like.

Do you struggle with figuring out what to wear in the morning? Do you check the weather like 10 times trying to figure out if you should wear pants, tights, or a skirt? Are you stuck in a rut with your clothing? Yes, even I have these moments. Which is why when I read about The Style Up over on Thirties Two Cents I thought it was a pretty neat idea.

What is The Style Up? At its core it’s a free service that emails you a new outfit idea every night! For example, last night they emailed me this:

And, as you can see, I took that as my inspiration when getting dressed this morning! Black pants, black turtleneck, camel blazer, patent leather shoes? I have all those in my closet. Why not wear them together?

The Style Up also takes your personal preferences in style and the weather conditions in your area into account.  When you create an account you get to choose your “style profile”.

Then you get to go wild in their image archive saying whether an outfit is “Love”, “It’s Okay” or “Dislike”. If you want, you can add your own feedback as well. This, combined with you entering your basic location via entering your zip code, gives The Style Up the information they need to start sending you outfit ideas. You can give your feedback on every outfit they send you and The Style Up will “learn” more about your style.

I’ve been using it for several weeks and I’ve gotten some good ideas for future outfits. Sometimes you do have to look at an outfit and ignore how it fits on the model (they use photos from online catalogs, mostly) and just go with the idea they write in the outfit suggestions they include with every photo.

The Style Up also has a few other features but the daily outfit idea email is my favorite. And, hello, it’s free! So why wouldn’t you try it out? What do you have to lose?

Note, I was NOT compensated for or asked to write this post. I just think The Style Up is pretty cool and wanted to share it with you.

P.S. It’s raining and gross outside. I hate taking pictures indoors. Also, I liked this pose even though I cut off my head in the picture. Which is why I’m including it anyway.

    Classic and classy. My kind of outfit.
    Is that your red purse in the corner? Just the right amount of pizzaz!

    So awesome. What a great resource, especially if it is free! I definitely find myself having trouble figuring out what to wear on most mornings, especially when I am in a hurry. This results in lots of the same old tried-and-true outfits, as opposed to mixing things up more. I can’t wait to check it out!

    This sounds EXACTLY like something I need in my life. I had all these grand plans to start using my Pinterest board for clothes inspiration, and then I remembered I’m lazy as anything when it comes to dressing, so obviously that has not happened. But this! This sounds like something I could handle!

    I love your re-make of the outfit that was sent to you!! I use StyleUp as well and have found myself less likely to wear the same old, simple “blah” outfit, but now I get my inspiration every day to try something new!

    It’s great when people discover the StyleUp and love it as much as I do! It really does make your life so much easier. I used to be one of those people that changed several times in the morning and by the time I left the house my room looked like a tornado. With the StyleUp it simplifies my routine in the morning which is much less stressful! Love your posts! Cute flats too!
