Closet Procrastinator

Are you the kind of person that plans out your outfits a week ahead? I wish I was. But I'm not. At all. I'm the kind that wakes up most of the time with no idea what I'm going to wear that day. I'm what you would call a procrastinator. I always assume some grand outfit idea will come to me a I'm applying mascara or curling my hair but no...it doesn't. Well, sometimes it does, but not usually. I end up standing in front of my closet hoping some fabulous look will jump out at me (literally). When it doesn't, I rely heavily on Polyvore to help me out. I like to go in and create outfits on Polyvore some nights when I'm watching TV so when I have no clue what to wear (most mornings)I have a few pre-made outfit ideas waiting for me. Sunday morning was one of those mornings I had no clue what I wanted to wear. Luckily I had created this look on Polyvore a few months ago and away we went:

Dressed Up Boldly Brushed Peasant Top

And here's how it looked in real life..just a few changes:

-Boldly Brushed Peasant Top-Anthropologie (Winter 2011)
-Rah-Rah-Rumba Skirt-Anthropologie (Summer 2010)
-Belt-Forever 21
-Presta Wedges-Target (Summer 2010)
-Small Open Circle Necklace-Shabby Apple
-Ring-Pree Brulee
-Earrings-Stella & Dot

Did anyone score anything from Anthro on sale today? I have to admit, none of my "must-have" items hit sale so I wasn't terribly excited by it. There were a few things on my long wish list that did hit sale but none that I felt strongly enough about to get. Still waiting for some second cut on a few things. The one thing I did decide to get was this:

I tried on the yellow motif of this dress just over a week ago and decided I liked that motif best but at $60 I wasn't willing to pull the trigger. When I saw it went down to $29.99 today I decided I wanted to get it, but had a change of heart about the motif I wanted. The yellow/pink version just looks too much like other things I have in my closet already. The green motif, on the other hand, is different than anything I already have, so I went with that. I've seen a few other bloggers wear it and it's really cute!! Can't wait to get it! I was playing on Polyvore with some belt and shoe possibilities to go with it:

Sprightly Shirtdress

Button front dress, $60
Leather shoes, $168
Banana Republic wood shoes, $120
Seychelles wedge heel sandals, $95
BP. t bar shoes, $70
Belt, $44
Braided belt, $20
Belt, $40
Mossimo Cognac Presta Wedge - 8.5 : Target, $25

Alrighty...we're off to #2's first soccer practice of the season today...we'll see how this goes! =)

Have a great day!


  1. I hardly ever plan my outfits in advance unless I have something new that I can't wait to style or wear. This outfit turned out great. I love the bold orange color of the top!!

  2. I might get an idea in my head every once in a while, but I'm not that organized to plan out weeks in advance. Is anyone with kids that organized?!? :) I picked up the Counting Angles Dress this morning when it got a second price cut... I can't wait for it to get here. Hopefully it's forgiving for post pregnancy!

  3. Plan in advance? No way. Are there people who do that? :)
    So, I'm the sort of person who is drawn to plain things like plain white shirts or black shirt. Boring!! I see you shirts and they are so bold and unique! I'm just dying with envy ;)
    I need you to go shopping with me! Where do you live again...

  4. Cute sunday outfit, I love the bright colors! And what a deal on that dress, can't wait to see it on you!

  5. I love that skirt!! I really considered purchasing it myself, but the waistband kind of threw me off. But I absolutely love it on you! I love the tiers!!

    I was really considering the sailboat skirt because of the price. And the Lengthening Rays skirt but I think it might be too long on me.

  6. I trrrryy to at least do it the night before. I makes such a difference in getting out the door in time.

  7. Aw, I love today's outfit! I usually have an idea in my head what I'm going to wear at least the day before, but it doesn't always end up looking good when actually executed the next day...I must work on that this school year...I'll be so much less stressed out!

  8. i love that orange top Jennie. I have it and always pair it with jeans but you have inspired to try something different on the bottom. Great outfit!

  9. I'm the same way. I wish I could plan outfits ahead, it would save me SO much time in the morning but instead I spend 20min in front of my closet just staring at my clothes.
    Love the orange and white combo, looks fab on you!

  10. HI Jenni, love the polyvore sets, esp that reddish top, really cute. Hope ou're well and enjoying your Summer.

  11. Thanks ladies! Glad to know I'm not the only one who procrastinates! =)

  12. Wow, you matched the Polyvore outfit so well! Great colors on you!! And no, I do not plan outfits in advance. Should I? :)

  13. Awwe, you look so lovely in those colours. Beautiful, as always!

  14. I never plan my outfits in advance, but using Polyvore is a great idea!
