I’m starting something new on amanda-bella.com…
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 –>
The 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!

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

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 for inspiring me!!! 🙂
I love this idea! It’s so true that how we dress can affect how we feel. I’m excited to see all your posts!
Thank you so much, girlie!! It does make a huge difference in the way we act/feel! So glad you enjoyed — I’m excited to do this each week 🙂 XOXO
This is genius. I would love to do this, but I swear I wouldn’t look this put together. Wednesday’s look is my favorite, that skirt is gorgeous and it pairs so well with the top. I love the Friday look too, I have a similar top,(http://littlepalaceonline.com/2015/08/25/tuesday/) but with a white collar. Am already looking forward to more of these posts.
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
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
That would be so much fun 😉 When I’m rich and famous I will let you know. 🙂
