The Tiny Heart: A Case of Fashion Block

A Case of Fashion Block

(Oliver thinks smelling the tree is more interesting than posing)
Dress-Forever 21 {old} (similar), Cardigan-Gap {old}(similar), Belt-H&M (similar), Leggings-Forever 21 (here), Boots-Target (similar)

I was having a major case of fashion block. You know, when you loathe everything you have in your closet and whatever outfit you try on looks awful? 

Yup, it was one of those days. It took me an entire hour to finally come up with this outfit. There were so many clothes, belts, and scarves thrown all over the place that my bedroom was starting to look worse than a Forever 21 dressing room after a group of teenagers were in it. 

This dress is definitely shorter than I remember it being (did it shrink in my closet?) and I wore these boots all week (major blogger faux pas). But in the end, I finally put an outfit together that made sense. Fashion block over.

  1. Ugh those days are the worst! It's always when I'm in a hurry that I can't find anything to wear. But I'm glad you're over your fashion block! I love your dress and the way you've styled it. Also, your dog is super cute! :)

  2. I do that often. I'm pretty sure I just went through about 8 dresses this morning and I'll probably still go back to change. However - this outfit looks great! you look beautiful!

  3. Oh I know that feeling all too well! Your second paragraph made me laugh... I've been there!

    Well, in the end you came up with an adorable outfit - I love the print on that dress :)

  4. Gahhh I hate that feeling! But this looks SO cute - even if it did take an hour to put together :) And Oliver is the cutest!

  5. Well, you definitely managed to come up with an adorable outfit! Especially love that belt.

    And how funny - I just mentioned in my post today how I've worn the same boots all week, too. :)

  7. Sharon, this happens to all of us! I really think it's because winter is winding down, and we want to wear our Spring clothes but it is a bit too chilly outside so we're forced to select something from what we've got in our closets! On the flip side, I'd never know you had a fashion block, love the dress :)

    1. The weather here has been crazy. It was 60 degrees last week and then last night it snowed. Definitely makes it harder to select an outfit!

  10. my room is always in a constant state of disarray for the same reasons! i love your outfit, though...it was worth it! same boots = no problem! and yes, closets shrink clothes, just ask my jeans!

  11. This outfit was worth the time it took to come up with...it's gorgeous! Your dog is totally adorable as well!

  12. The Cardigan, belt, tights, dresses, and boots combo is pretty much my go to outfit! I wear it WAY too much! But I love it! I love the bright colors in this dress!

  14. I love the floral dress!! I get the "fashion block" too... I hate when I say "I have nothing to wear" and I have a stuffed closet!

    1. Agreed, I have so many clothes but in that moment, I was hating all of them. I take this as a sign that I need to go shopping!

  15. First of all, I think you look great! I know the feeling, though, and I have it constantly haha. For my birthday last month, I tried on a good 40 outfits, I think. (I wish I were exaggerating!)

    Second, is that a puggle?! Whatever he is, I want him! SO CUTE!

    1. I remember your birthday post, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble coming up with an outfit sometimes.

      Yup, Oliver is a puggle and quite the little terror. Apparently pug + beagle=one hyper dog, haha. I think they only bred them for cuteness :)

  16. You are darling! And Oliver is such a cutie. What a great post. Happy Friday! :)

  17. Thanks for the comment Sharon! I did the polka dot nails myself. I think I'll probably do a tutorial on it next week :) I love this floral dress on you! The colors are beautiful and I love it with the gray belt!

  19. Gorgeous dress Sharon! I love the color and pattern of it so much. Very relaxing and chic at the same time. I have these "nothing to wear" moments everyday. But I think mostly it is because we are in the process of moving so everything is literally in boxes! Have a great weekend my dear!

  21. I frequently have those days. That dress is adorable. It reminds me of an Anthropologie dress that was out awhile ago.
