Happy Tuesday! This week is going by fast so far which is good! The weekend will be here before we know it. As I have said a few times already I have been really into pattern mixing and I am trying to be more adventurous with it. I am also trying to recycle more of my clothes and shop less. I have so many clothes in my closet yet I always feel like I have nothing! Today I tried to pull out older items that I haven’t worn to work yet. This skirt has been one of my best buys and what started my obsession with Maison Jules at Macy’s. It was the first piece I bought from the brand. I remember finally convincing myself to buy it since I had never bought a skirt that was $30 (lol), thinking back now it makes me laugh. This skirt really showed me that paying a little more for better quality is really worth it.
Anyways, I pulled this white and black skirt out and paired it with a mustard tank and my floral kimono. I LOVE when I am able to make a new outfit from clothes I have been overlooking in my closet. I finished the look off with my current favorite heels. The whole look came together quite nicely!
On Wednesdays we wear an outfit again… (I really hope you understood that reference)
Anyways… It’s Wear Again Wednesday where I take a previously worn outfit and change it up a bit. For those of you who know me I rarely wear the exact same outfit more than once unless it’s one I REALLY love. But I’ve been trying to recycle my outfits instead of shopping and it’s working however, it does take some work. It can be so hard to just stare at your closet and see all the same clothes all the time. Imagination is needed to create new outfits! I saw the sleeve of one of my chambray tops sticking out of my overstuffed closet and saw the bottom of my red striped t-shirt dress and this outfit instantly came to me. I bought this dress and necklace last year for the Fourth of July. It’s a combination that is pretty noticeable when worn again so I changed the shoes and added the chambray top and left it open like a cardigan. Although very similar to the original version, I liked it better today!
If any of you share my feelings about repeating outfits try this out! It is almost like a challenge to myself to reinvent something I have already worn!
As for shopping this look I can tell you where everything is from, but it is all older so I can’t link the exact items: dress- Target / chambray top- Forever 21 / statement necklace- Charming Charlie / sandal wedges- Madden Girl by Steve Madden
