Today's Everyday Fashion: 5 Ways to Beat the Winter Blues


This week I've been sharing tips for beating the winter style blues! Let's recap:

  1. Wear more color.
  2. Brainstorm old outfits you can repeat.
  3. Clean out your closet. 
  4. Start planning for spring.
  5. Get inspired.

Today's tip is (#5) get inspired. Whenever you're in need of a creative boost, you can try different things like reading fashion sites, scrolling through outfit pictures you've saved, or hitting the mall for some window shopping. Shopping is not something I always enjoy, but I will coax myself to go if I'm feeling totally stuck. This week I stopped in a couple stores, and got excited about this assortment of jackets at H&M (below). My favorite is #1, but JJ liked #2 the best. Which one is your favorite? What methods do you use for beating the winter blues?
