I quickly took this picture before I raced out the door to a lunch/meeting today, so I could show you what I wore and hopefully give you some ideas.
The thing is I’ve had all these pieces in my wardrobe for some time (the blue suede pumps I’ve had for about 7 years) but I have never worn them together in this way. Both the shirt and the sweater I generally wear on their own with a pair of jeans. I’ve never layered them together like this. The chinos I often wear with my sneakers or ankle boots. The heels I used to wear with suits when I worked at the bank. And the belt I often wear around my waist over blazers. (It’s adjustable so can be worn both on the hips or waist)
It can be so easy to just keep wearing the same thing, the same way every time. This is often what happens when we get bored with our clothes….and sometimes ourselves. (ie. Stuck in a style rut) It’s at this time, when we should play around with our clothes and try to come up with new outfits.
Remember this is my style and you certainly do not need to have the same style as me, but hopefully this inspires you a little bit to see if you can come up with new ways to wear your old clothes.
