Last week, I helped an old friend from college (who’s a new Mom!) go through her closet! We went through everything she owned & determined which items could be sold, donated, or tossed. When we finished, we were left with pieces that she liked & that fit, but she didn’t necessarily know how to wear. We identified a few key articles that she’d need to pick up & then we spent some time styling her old pieces in new ways! We ended up putting together a handful of fun, new outfits that she had never worn before! 🙂
When I got home, I myself was inspired to put together an outfit from my older pieces. It was a task similar to styling a Mix + Max look, but none of these pieces were new…or barely worn. To be honest, I wear them all quite frequently! However, pairing & styling them in a different way gave me a new appreciation for their versatility.
Take a look!
((PS: It was SO WINDY this day, my nose was turning red, my eyes were watering & my hair ended up in my face for 95% of our shots….hence the lack of head to toe pics! God Bless my sister for freezing her little fingers off to shoot for me!))
Shop this look:
I have a strong love for all three of these pieces individually – they’re great staples & work when paired with many different items (ironically, they’re all from Forever 21). I had never worn this particular combination before & I was loving it! My personal style is very simple. It blows my mind how an outfit with only three basic pieces can end up being such a favorite! Go figure!
It’s really a lot of fun to go shopping in your own closet & put together outfits that you may have never thought about before. I challenge you to take a peek in your wardrobe this week & style a new look!
You may surprise yourself! 🙂
