I'm just trying to have fun.



Yup pockets!

Skirt H&M 2008 I have to disclaim I didn't realize the skirt was this wrinkled. I never would of left the house if I realized. I put my coat on in a dark apartment and it appeared fine without my glasses on. (I've been keeping them off until I get to the T because they fog up and I totally can't see. But without them on I have one good eye. ;P )
Leggings and Turtleneck Target 2010 Similar shirt, Similar leggings
Velvet blazer Gap 2005 Similar
Boots Merrell
Earrings I made
Necklace Gift. Similar
Black on black is hard to see eh?
If you've been around awhile you might recognize this outfit. I wore the coat and skirt together before. (different shirt and accessories this time though!)

How I wore it in 2008

What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart?

You can't tell where the coat ends and the shirt begins. You can see how smooth my hair is today though. I should of taken a picture of the giant snarl in the back that I can't get out.

pretty

These are a pair of earrings I made. Some kinda stone with metallic flecks and stars and hearts.

Do you wear the exact same outfit over and over? 

I definitely have ones I wear over and over again but I usually mix up the shoes or accessories. I don't know if I have redone the entire thing including accessories and shoes, tights etc. Usually because it isn't all clean at the same time! (plight of no washer and dryer!) If you do what is the combo?

Don't forget to enter my $100 shopbop giveaway that ends this afternoon.

if i put together an outfit that i really love, i will wear it time and time again. like you, i will most likely change out the minor details, but the big stuff stays the same.

did you have that jacket altered since the last time you wore that outfit?
in the old photo, the front hem looks like corners, but in the new photo, the front hem looks scalloped.
not that it makes a difference...not really sure why im asking, other than i just happened to notice it. :)

Nope haven't altered it. It wasn't buttoned in the old photo and I think the edges were just behind a skirt fold.

I have that skirt! Well, that skirt in the blue. It doesn't really fit me any more, so I wear it high-waisted. LOVE having the pockets, though. As far goes re-wearing outfits, I do tend to recycle outfits a lot, but try not to within a few weeks of the last wearing. I just don't have a lot of pieces that work together (though I feel like my closet is bursting with clothes, so how I don't is a mystery to me)

hillary said...

I have to wear it highwaisted too. Annoyingly so.

I try really hard to not wear the same outfit over and over, it's part of one of the reasons I blog - keep track.
I really, REALLY like that skirt the colors AND specially the pockets!
If there is ever an award for the blogger with the "best hair" you are my pick. You have fabulous hair.

Oh, I love your skirt. It's so 'Elmer'!

Que?

I love the skirt and earrings. I definitely wear the same outfit over and over. I try to mix up accessories, but sometimes when you find the perfect combo it's too good to just wear once.

hillary said...

Love the skirt. I love it when skirts and dresses have pockets. So handy. And I totally re-wear outfits. I really like your earrings!

hillary said...

I rarely wear the same exact outfit twice, usually just because the daily conditions are rarely exact, so I have to switch out shoes, or add a scarf, or change tights. There are a few, though, that incorporate pieces that I just adore, and I'll repeat those main pieces time and time again.

I love this outfit, and I gotta say, your hair is looking fantastic lately! I love how long it's getting! :)

What a great background for that skirt! So fun and colorful. I used to wear the exact same outfit over and over when I didn't style blog. Sometimes you just feel comfortable in a new outfit!

Kristine. Or Polly.

I kind of have to wear the same outfit over and over because I don't have a lot of clothes.
