Hi there! ❤
It feels like I've been wearing a lot of the same pieces over and over again in my outfits lately, which I really don't mind--it's just strange. For so many years I felt the need to have a different article of clothing for every single day, as in that I wouldn't wear the same piece of clothing even two times in one month. I felt like it made me powerful to constantly have new pieces and always keep people on the 'edge of their seat' for what I'd wear next. I thrifted so much I couldn't keep up with what I was buying and much of it just went unworn...
Thankfully college (and just general growing up) has taught me that wearing the same items is not bad and it's not embarrassing. I have a lot of clothing here at college but I don't wear half of it because I usually just stick to remixing a few key pieces and pull out harder to wear ones every once in awhile. It's difficult for me when shopping, because I never really know what I'll latch onto and what will become a vital part of my wardrobe until I just start to notice myself wearing something a lot. This black brimmed hat and striped shirt, my leather jacket, tan loafers, and a few key dresses....I find myself just wearing them over and over again in endless possibilities which is both inspiring and limiting at the same time.
It will be interesting to observe how my style will change even more this coming fall when I will have a very limited wardrobe. I am anxious and curious to see! x
With much love, Lauren.
