When I was editing these pictures, I thought to myself this could be one of my favorite outfits I’ve posted here. Why? It just feels so me.
I’ve really been flushing out my closet so I’m only left with things I love. It’s been a slow process but I’m mostly left with clothes that I want to wear every day vs. pieces I maybe might want to wear some time in the future but not the foreseeable future. We’ve all got some of those things still hanging in our closets though, right? And while I may wear the same ripped jeans or striped shirt a lot, it’s okay because I love them.
I’m left with a lot of black, white, brown, denim, and leopard print (no surprise there) which, on paper, doesn’t sound very sartorially inspiring. But when I combine those basics for a fun new-to-me combination like this outfit, having a smaller closet full of similar colors doesn’t feel redundant.
Do you have a go-to color scheme? How do you switch things up? Add a statement earring or a pop or color?
Somewhat related: have you read this story of the woman of an art director who wears the same thing every day? I love the notion of creating your own uniform to reflects your personal style. Though, I don’t think I could wear the same thing every day solely because I wouldn’t want to. I really enjoy choosing what to wear every morning (or afternoon if it is Sunday…)
