“Oh yes ! – some accessories”

Hmm… didn’t I wear this cardigan with a similar dress and grey tights in yesterday’s outfit?  Why yes I did.  And you know what?  I’m just fine with that.  I have a very small closet.  I have a limited wardrobe, because I only keep clothes that I love, and I don’t have tons of money to buy tons of new clothes.  So sometimes I may wear some elements on an outfit two days in a row.  And that’s perfectly okay.  The main thing to me is to make sure that each outfit is unique, and my favorite way to do that is with accessories.

Yesterday, I punched things up with a new color scheme of yellow, green and blue.  Today, I dropped the green.  I switched out my black Dansko boots for my blue Fluevog ones.  I added some grey accents with the long sleeve tee layered underneath.  I added a different necklace, and my new black belt.  So while the outfits are similar, they are not the same.

Do you sometimes repeat elements of an outfit two days in a row?  What do you do to keep them fresh and unique?

  1. I am totally a repeat offender. In fact, I plan on rewearing some of yesterday’s outfit today! You definitely succeeded on mixing it up with accessories, and I love the blue and yellow together- so sunny and bright!

  2. When you’re repeating something and it creates a look this gorgeous, it would be an offense not to wear that cardi a second day in a row! I don’t often wear something two days in a row, but I do frequently wear something every other day or say on a Mon/Thurs/Sat in a given week.

    I definitely recycle and repeat elements. I also feel like I repeat themes throughout the week. Often, when I look back on my week of pictures, I notice that they all have something in common; earrings, a belt, a general color scheme, or a more intangible feeling. Anyway, I love both of these pieces in your wardrobe, and I’m excited to see them much much more!

    Since I have a rather vast wardrobe, I make a concerted effort to stay away from repeats. But I admire your ability to remix items into very distinct combinations!

    I’m hoping to pare my wardrobe down to where I have pieces that are versatile enough to repeat.

    I love this outfit.

    I don’t do it terribly often, although when the weather gets really nasty I might appear in my black jeans several days running.
    But I really do want to work on accessories this year, so I’m always interested to see what you do!

    Ah, the way you wear yellow and other brights always makes me smile indeed 🙂 The pairing with the turquoise against black and white is wonderful!

    Oh, and when I really like something I wore and felt great in it, I never hesitate to wear it again!
