  2. Found you on Pinterest and it truly couldn't have came at a better time. I have been in a huge rut... Wearing jeans, v-neck t-shirts with a colored cami, with flip flops or slippers. I own almost every color of t-shirt and cami (they are safe and easy)... That's how bad it is. To make things worse I HATE shopping... In fact loathe is probably a better word. Especially for shoes. Ughhh... Just thinking about it. My sweet husband actually told me take some money out of our budget to go shopping. I need a wardrobe make over and your blog has helped me get inspired. Just wanted to say thanks!!

    Also, if you have any tips on breaking out of my very safe rut and especially my hatred towards shoes I could sure use them!

    1. Hey Janae! I'm not the blogger (or a blogger), but I'd love to help!

      What makes you hate shopping for shoes? Do you find that they fit strangely or no size choices or you just don't like the massive options? I have trouble with it because so many shoemakers seem to make shoes solely for looks when my feet need some support... cause y'know, they're actually physically important to me.

      (Hope I see your reply! If not, hit me up at @sehneju. :3 )

  3. I love your blog!! It inspired me to go through my closet and be more creative and I'm shocked at how many cute outfits I was able to pull together when I thought I had very little to work with. Thank you!!

  4. I also stumbled across your blog on pinterest and I immediately sent your site link to my mom, sister, and friend! Your blog has given me so much inspiration. I am so dissatisfied with what I have in my closet that I've been less than enthusiastic about getting ready in the morning. I always end up with the same 'ol boring ensemble. I always stay safe. Anyways, I pulled out 10-12 pieces of clothes, plus all of my boots, scarves and belts and mixed and match to my hearts content. Then I took pictures of all my new outfits, using things I already have, and made an iphoto album on my computer that I can refer to when I can't think of what to wear. I've also decided my next wild and crazy purchase will be red skinny jeans - thanks to you! My husband will be so happy! When he saw me taking pictures of my clothes he said, "Why do you only have black and white things?" Red jeans will shock him! Anyways, this is the best blog I've ever come upon. You rock!

    1. Kristin, I'm so glad to hear all this! How cool that you made an iPhoto album. You should check out Go Chic or Go Home (link on the side column of the blog). It's basically an interface that helps you organize outfits--ones you've worn but more importantly, potential outfits. You can upload different pics of your individual clothes and mix and match virtually and create ensembles too. It's helpful so that you have less of a mess to clean up versus when we tear our our closets onto the bed. Also, if you have a smart phone, you can think of potential outfits even when you're away from your closet by using it on your phone!

  5. I just found your blog! It is so great. I am clueless when it comes to putting outfits together. I am learning so much. Thanks!

  6. Wow, I LOVE this blog. Normally fashion blogs get old fast, and feel a little.. Conceited, I guess. But this blog, man! It is totally helpful! I love the way you show the differences between outfits versus just saying "This necklace pulled the outfit together." Amazing. I'm about to graduate college and I've been trying to figure out how to look and feel more "womanly" and pulled together, and this is exactly what I needed to find. Kudos.

    So, with that said, I have a question. I feel like I have such issues with shoes. I don't know what looks good with certain outfits, what's mismatched, what types of shoes are too dressy for casual wear, everything. I don't know why I feel so clueless here, but when my fiance has a better grip on shoe fashions I think it's time for an intervention! ;)

  7. A friend who found your blog via Pinterest gave you glowing accolades on her FB page, and wallllla I've arrived to this fablous place called Puttingmetogether.com! Awesome blog! Your style is exactly where I aim to go.

    Can you do a special post on belts? How to select? What widths to wear with what?

    Everytime I attempt to add one to my outfit I yank it off at the last minute b/c I think it's too tight or too loose. Help!

  9. This is what I have been looking for. I have been at home this week with an injury and have been watching a ton of what not to wear and it has not come close to being as valuable as this blog. This spells it all out beautifully, and is the most helpful fashion blog on the internet hands down!

  10. Hi Audrey! I'm so glad & thankful I found your blog after seeing an outfit of yours I pinned on pinterest :) I've been struggling with how to use the clothes I already have in my closet to make cute and stylish outfits, but after reading through your blog(I think I spent a total of 3 days), I have now found many ways to mix-n-match and make the most of what I have. I was also inspired to go out and find a few of your key pieces, which I was fortunate enough to find on sale/clearance at both Old Navy & Target! I adore your style and love how you keep things simple, functional, trendy, classic, and fun all at the same time. I would love to see or hear of any style tips/outfits you have on using "work slacks." Thank you for sharing and opening up your closet, wardrobe and style tips!

    1. How awesome that you have been able to mix and match your clothes! And even more awesome o find things on sale at Old Navy and Target. I don't really wear work slacks, so I don't have much to offer on the subject. But there are plenty of other blogs who do looks with that in my "Blog Love" section. Good luck!

  11. Have you written a post on closet organization? If not, could you do one?

  12. Zoology. Yesterday I put my reading to the test and I must say I felt very successful! I used a summer dress with blue tights and a gray and blue Cardigan.I created a whole new loom for the dress. I then rummage through my closet and played dress up for a while seeing my clothes differently. I am excited now. Thank you for being frank with your instructions.

  15. Hi Audrey,

    I am totally in love with your blog and your tips. I have been a nerd all my life, and it's just recently that I have started appreciating fashion and style. Your blog is my savior.

    If I may suggest, I would like you to do do a post on how to pair neutrals and colors(esp. neutral bottoms and colored tops and accessories), what combinations work and what don't.

    Also, a post on shoes and bags( I know I am asking for too much).

    Take care and keep blogging.

    Cheers from India,
    Mayura

  17. Audrey!
    I just stumbled on your blog and I'm in love!! I love that you include where you got each item, and you don't only shop at high price stores. Also I am trying to thin out and organize my closet as well, trying to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Your blogs seem to be helping. Thanks so much for blogging, I feel like its a modern What not to wear for younger gals.

  18. Love your blog. As I am getting a bit older (but not old), I have struggled with how to dress. In my twenties I was a jeans and tshirt girl all the way, but now that I am in my early thirties I found it really hard to look "my age". I loooove all of your tips! Classic, Classy yet stylish, which is jusst the help I needed!

  19. Hi there! First off, I love this blog! I found you on Pinterest and ever since you have taught me some very valuable fashion lessons! I totally related to you when you admitted to being a "one-hit-wonder" victim of your closet. Excuse me, I have some shopping to do!

  20. I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago and now refer to it almost every day! I recently moved from a very small, very rural town where my entire wardrobe was jeans and t-shirts. My move took me to a larger city where I got a job working in a women's clothing store (gulp!) Not that I had no interest in fashion before, I just didn't need it. Going from having no wardrobe to needing to dress for work was like diving into the deep end. But your blog has saved me from drowning, thank you! Your information and tips on key pieces and building a (mixable) wardrobe from scratch are invaluable! Thank you again for sharing your journey and making mine a little easier going.
