This week I’m going shopping in my own closet. That’s right! I’m not buying anything new – gasp! Can you believe that?!? I feel it’s important to show you that I actually practice what I preach. I really surprised myself with this one. It goes to show that you really can remix your wardrobe and find new ways to wear items that you already own. Most of us already own a black cotton dress. Below, I’m showing you a few options to transition this basic from tomorrow until that glorious sleeveless season!
Option #1: Wear now with tights and a white button up.
Tip: Do splurge on a crisp, white, quality button up…especially if you work in an office setting. You will wear this again and again. I bought mine a few years back at White House Black Market. It looks as good as the day I bought it.
Option #2: Add a leather jack and some cute booties. Did someone say date night?!? Oh hey hottie!
Option #3: Slap on a vest and wear that puppy all summer long! Also, could I BE any whiter? Yeah, I probably could… Also, this is my one and only attempt at looking into the camera while taking a selfie, so don’t get used to it. It’s not easy people! I have approximately 739 outtakes.
Vest: wearing in large. OMG THIS IS ON SALE FOR $26! BUY IT NOW, AND REGRET IT NEVER. See, I told you I could style this vest a thousand ways!
So, the moral of this story is this: you definitely can go shopping in your own closet. I was skeptical at first too, but I turned out 3 Insta-worthy looks I have literally never worn until now. Just try it. You might surprise yourself. Crank up the music, get in your closet and start trying on some clothes! Maybe you’ll find some things in the back you forgot you had…maybe you’ll find some things with the tags still on (just me?) And maybe you’ll be thanking me when you walk into a room and everybody asks you where you got your new outfit.
See ya next time!
