One of my much appreciated regular visitors (hi there, Rachel!) recently commented that she really enjoys seeing how I repeat wardrobe items in my outfit combinations from week to week. 😊 Of course I’m hoping she’s not the only one, because – let’s face it – most of us don’t have the kind of budget that allows for a never-ending supply of brand-new stuff coming into our closets.
Even if you love, love, love shopping as much as I do (although I’ve taken a bit of a break when it comes to buying for myself, I’m sure I’ll be back in fine form very soon!) I don’t think “all new pieces all the time” would be as great as it maybe sounds at first. I talk a lot about having favourites that I can’t imagine doing without; and even if finding new favourites was an everyday kind of thing, that certainly doesn’t mean I’d be willing to give up, for example, my “cool girl” striped suit jacket, perfectly fitting flare jeans, and soft and slouchy mohair beanie – snap! – just like that!! 😟
So I expect that you can always expect to find a nice mix of “old” and new pieces around here, dear readers!! And because I focus on personal style inspiration, when I feature something new that I’ve purchased, I don’t usually bother to provide shopping links, either. I’d like to believe that you enjoy getting outfit ideas from the combos I put together…but that you don’t actually want to create carbon copies of my looks. ‘Cause honestly?? Where’s the fun in that?!
And if you’re a fan of the tone-on-tone colour story I’ve got going on today, you’ll want to visit High Latitude Style, where my friend Nicole has a special edition post featuring 7 bloggers’ secrets for styling great ensembles using neutrals. You might see a familiar face or two, as well!! 😉
