I own more clothes than I need but at times I feel like I have nothing to wear. I originally styled and wore this outfit for date night, but shot it the next day to capture it in daylight. My goal was to look cute without dressing up while challenging myself to create a new outfit with pieces I've already worn. I wore this off shoulder top before the here, this faux leather peplum top here and these jeans here. Putting this outfit together was so much fun because I challenged myself to be creative and create a look I've never worn before. If you're getting bored with your wardrobe of feel like you have nothing to wear, try layering pieces or styling a look differently than you usually do.

As humans we are always on the quest for more; we want more clothes, greater success, more money, more time, etc. However we are never satisfied. This quest for more is both positive and negative. In some ways it keeps us ambitious because we have to discipline ourselves if we actually want to achieve greater success, financial leverage, etc. However, consumerism and the insatiable desire for material things often leaves us feeling unsatisfied. This week I want to challenge you (and myself) to be a better steward of the things you have. Maybe we already have everything we need, or at the very least we have the tools to acquire what we need. Lets practice gratitude learn to be more resourceful and creative with our possessions, time and money.
