In case you missed it, I posted a 90s Minimalist Winter Capsule Wardrobe yesterday, which I feel a lot of connection with. I’ve been feeling a little meh with style lately.

I don’t feel it is a style rut, per se. I think it might just be the season of being overwhelmed, and tired.

My husband has been out of work since the Hollywood writer’s strike started, and now that it is over it is both a relief, but also shitty timing since this of the time of year studios are starting to wind down for the holiday season.

Which means there won’t be floods of work yet.

So while I have been busy with my work, I have also had the expense of the holiday season on top of our lives on my shoulders.

Plus I am still paying off a shit ton of taxes which will be just in time to start all over. Being an adult sucks.

I think all that may be the root cause of the meh feeling.

Anyway, I started to play around with my clothes today and put together some flat lay style outfits on the bed to take pictures of, so I have something to give me some inspiration through the week.

It was a bit invigorating, but also a nice way to see things without the extra steps of trying everything on.

I posted the flat lays on my Instagram stories if you want to see them before they time out, they are my outfit inspirations for next week.

Tom’s birthday is on Sunday and every year he requests the same cake (except I use semi-sweet chocolate instead of white). So that is what I am going to do tomorrow, bake a cake after I drop off some returns, and mail something I sold on Poshmark.

I also have several client wardrobes to work on and finish up, so it is going to be busy.

I should probably go to bed.
