Stylish outfits for moms using clothes you already have

Do you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear?  I know me too.  I often dream if I had a huge clothes budget and an even bigger closet I would never be unhappy because I would always have something good to wear.  My thinking might be a little flawed, but whatever, it's a dream!

After coming to the conclusion that I want to be happy with what I have, I took careful consideration of my large collection of clothing, (say that 10x fast) and realized I already had lots of good stuff to wear.  I was just in a rut of how to style it.

That led me to look for new ways to style my current clothes, and I came up with a system!  I'm going to share my secret of How to Put Together Stylish Mom Outfits with Clothes You Already Own.

As a work at home mom, I try really hard to not schlep around in my jammies all day.  I always feel so much better and am more productive when I am dressed and ready.  Something that inhibits that is feeling like I have nothing to wear.  I have tons of clothes and as I searched through them, I realized I had so many cute pieces, I just needed new ways to style them.  I found a trick for finding new outfit combinations using clothes I already own. And that trick is Pinterest!

Look in your closet and pull out pieces that you like and make you feel good about yourself, but need new ways to style.  Then go to Pinterest and put those pieces of clothing into the search bar.

Black Jeans


I have a pair of black distressed jeans that I love.  I typed black jeans outfit into the search bar to find new outfit combinations.

Gray Pants

I searched gray pants, gray chinos, gray pants casual on Pinterest.  The search results showed many ideas that weren't perfect matches for my pants, but still inspired me to chose new outfit combinations with clothes in my closet.
