A creative lull

On days when I feel less than inspired by my wardrobe, I pick a fun top and comfy bottoms.

The first look is from yesterday and the second from about two weeks ago. I count on Anthro to find unusual tops that are easy to wear. Lately I've been all about comfort. It's weird; I don't feel like shopping but I'm not feeling inspired either. I guess getting dressed has a creative flow too; sometimes you feel it and sometimes you don't. The only difference is that for most of us, getting dressed for public is a necessity while other creative endeavors can be put on the back burner.

While I enjoy having a versatile basick pencil skirt at my disposal, I think I need to shake things up a bit. I know I said I don't feel like shopping but we are going to the shopping mecca of the world (well, for me at least) - NYC - this week! My (shopping) goal is to find some fun pieces at stores not in Houston.

The hubs and I are definitely looking forward to our annual visit to the city. I will make every effort to post something the rest of the week but can make no promises.

P.S. Unfortunately my Chinese cooking skills are really limited to stir fry so those dumplings from last week are not homemade by me. We went to a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Bellaire called Yummy Kitchen and they were definitely yummy!

A basic pencil skirt is a great canvas for building an outfit. All of your fun tops really look great in all of your looks! Have fun in NYC, maybe you will get inspired to shop :)

I don't go to Anthro often, but they are building one close to my house so I bet I'll be shopping there more soon.

Anthro is fab for supplying fun, eye-catching pieces. And I do the same when I'm feeling uninspired - pick a fun top and a comfy bottom.

Have a blast in NYC!

Hey when something works, it works!

(Also I totally understand, somethings are just better out... I wound up getting dumplings and lo mien tonight because your post made me crave them!)
