I’m starting something new on amanda-bella.com…

get up dress up

I was recently inspired …by myself… when I showed up to work last Monday looking + feeling like a homeless person. Not really, but I was definitely feeling a bit frump. I usually put in the effort, but I’ll be the first to admit that I have these “off” days every so often. My very sweet co-worker + I had a really inspiring chat about a number of things – one being clothes!  Needless to say, it really stuck with me. I got home that night, looked in the mirror + decided it was time to step up my game – permanently.


To keep myself on track, I made the effort to style an outfit before I went to bed + was sure to Instagram it the next day! I love seeing OOTD posts from others – I’m definitely intrigued by how people wear + accessorize different kinds of clothes!

I had so much fun doing it, that I decided to bring it to my blog! With that said,  I’m excited to be launching my new series –>

WIWTW amanda bella bannerThe goal of this series will be to not only hold myself to a certain standard everyday, but to hopefully inspire others to think outside of the box + discover fun, new ways to utilize the clothes in their closets. I’ll be posting all of my outfits M-F, and maybe a few weekend looks as well! I plan to share the brand of each item/accessory + where I got it. I do have a few great designer pieces, but you’ll notice that the majority of my wardrobe is super affordable + many times from consignment!

I’m a firm believer that you don’t need to spend a fortune on high end clothes or makeup to look or feel your best. 🙂

So here we go – #WIWTW: Week 1!

  1. This is awesome!! I loved this post!! I loved your outfits!! It is so hard to pick a favorite! If I had to choose…ooo this is hard! I would say…Thursday…no…Wednesday…no…Friday…no…Tuesday! I just love them all haha!

    • Thank you so much! It’s the only one I’ve ever bought, but I love the way that it wears. I’m definitely in the market for more. I really appreciate you reading, hope you had a lovely weekend! XO

  2. I feel the same. I like all your looks! Tuesday’s top so beautiful, Friday’s earrings were spectacular, love them, plus those sunnies are the bomb.com. Hairstyles very much on point. Wish I could have seen more of the shoes. 😭😭
    Overall, I think you did gooood. Keep ’em coming! 😍😍😍

    • Thank you so much for your feedback! Your comments are always so insightful + genuine! This series is new for me, so hearing this kind of input is really helpful. I did notice how difficult it was for me to get a good shot of my shoes in the pictures, I’m going to work on that for next week — or figure out another way to feature them! Thank you as always for reading, beautiful! XOXO

  3. I LOVE this post – for more reasons than one. 🙂 I’m excited about this series too!! Keep up the great work and inspiration!

    • Thank you so much, Millie!! I’m really so glad that you enjoyed this post! I’m having a lot of fun playing around with my clothes + trying out new looks! I LOVE your white collared shirt – you have a fun style, you could totally put together great new outfits! Give it a try!! Thank you for reading XOXO

  4. So cute! I love getting big bargains 🙂 You should look into being a “clothing/style coach” (Not sure what they are calling them. Slipping my mind this early 😉 ) But your choices are just adorable. You can come shop for me! 🙂 Have a good one!

    • You’re so sweet! Such a nice compliment, thank you! I’m always helping friends + family, but I’ve been contacted a few times to consult/style or personal shop for others! I’m starting to dip my toes into that arena a bit! I’d LOVE to shop for you!! 🙂

      Thank you so much for reading XOXO
