4 Especially Good Outfit Ideas I'm Stealing From Instagram

Open the door to my tiny yet wildly overstuffed closet, and you’ll be amazed—and maybe a bit frightened—by the wild clash of patterns staring back at you. There’s that vintage faux-snakeskin coat I got for a steal, floor-length billowy dresses in all sorts of floral patterns, all sorts of leopard-print pieces (I knew it was going to come back in style)… and I rarely wear any of them.

I’m a maximalistic magpie at heart, but I’m also the opposite of a morning person. When it comes down to it, when you’ve overslept your alarm on a Monday, it’s just so much easier to pull on (looks down) a pair of wide-leg jeans and a black mock-neck. Who has time to rummage around and evaluate whether those vintage logo-print shoes look okay with those gingham pants when there’s a meeting to get to?

In an effort to shake myself out of my wardrobe rut, slash my cost-per-wear ratio, and feel a little more like my mismatched, vintage-loving self again, I’ve been looking to my favorite street style goddesses for divine inspiration. Warning: The following four Instagram outfit ideas may not be for the faint of heart.
