Confession-time: I am a clothes hoarder. I get such great deals with clothes that I hate to part with them! Especially since I’m always thinking of ways to re-style pieces. Every time I go to get rid of a piece of clothing, I automatically start listing the reasons in my head I should keep it–always at the top of the list is that it would be more expensive to buy again if I needed something similar in the future.
Anyways, on Friday, I mentioned a blog that I’ve really been enjoying lately by Katie over at Cup of Tea. She has been doing a 30 day outfit challenge, where you take 30 pieces from your wardrobe and make 30 different outfits over 30 days. I’m way too nervous to limit myself to just 30 pieces of clothes, but it has definitely got me thinking about the best ways to re-wear certain pieces.
So I think I’m going to start doing a Wardrobe Re-wear post every so often, and share with you 2 different looks that both feature the same piece of clothing. By re-wearing your clothes, you’re getting more of your money’s worth out of them! If you think outside your usual outfit pairings, you may not feel the urge to buy new clothing pieces all the time.
|Shirt- Old Navy, details here.
Skirt- Maurices, clearance from last summer.
Shorts- Old Navy, similar.
PS- the fluff ball photobombing in the bottom left corner is Gizmo, one of our kitties.
I’m really liking both of these looks, and I’m really excited I found some new ways to wear this shirt. I challenge each of you to try the same, and let me know how it goes–even better if you try to find new ways to wear a piece of clothing you used to hate!
