The nice thing about this time of the year is that I spend more time shopping in my wardrobe. I hardly ever buy anything new in January and February. And in March perhaps one or two things. ( not talking about pre loved though) First of all, there is usually only sale or the in between collection which I never liked, and I am not crazy about the sale. Why not? I hear you ask. Because I bought the clothes that I liked and are now on sale a few months ago. By the way, I did buy something new, these paperbag trousers, but they are more of a basic …. right? (just say yes)
Shopping my wardrobe, yes I do that….
But the nice thing about shopping your own wardrobe is that it often results in combinations that you have not yet tried. Well, this is really not an exciting combination to you, but I prefer the simple looks. But the funny thing is that I have been looking for gray trousers for a while to create a monochrome grey look. But I often can’t find nice trousers. Not entirely true either, because last fall I bought several! And then I remembered this skirt, velvet, wonderfully soft, with elastic waist band, it’s so nice and easy. No need for grey trousers.
And it’s not that I had forgotten about this skirt, because I wear it often. But often we don’t take the time to look in our wardrobes and try out some different outfits. Often we go for the usual looks that we feel good in. Nothing wrong with that, but when I make the time I love to see what I haven’t worn together yet.
Try to shop my closet more
Of course I could have worn gray boots with it, these ones then, because the longer ones have not been replaced yet. But I also think these boots look great underneath. These are quite old ones, but I think they are so beautiful. Cool too. They are from Tamaris which is a brand I love. I often wear a red lipstick with a less outspoken outfit, but since I have no teint at the moment, and I don’t use foundation or bb, cc creams at all, my face looks even wither with a bright red lipstick. So I opted for a berry one. And statement earrings! All from shopping my wardrobe!
