Maybe it’s the new year that’s brought this kind of post on, but I’ve come to the realisation that I own so so many clothes that I don’t wear enough – some of them hardly ever. I feel like this might not feel so overwhelming if I felt like I was ready to part with these pieces, but I still actually really like a lot of them, and I want to try my best to give them another chance.
I haven’t been feeling super inspired by my wardrobe lately either, and I’ve just found myself reaching for the same few pieces time and time again. I’m hoping that by being a lot more practical about what I have is really going to help me make better decisions when I’m buying new clothes, because honestly I know in myself that I’m never gonna be that person that has a capsule wardrobe, it’s just not realistic at all for me.
Yesterday I was rummaging through my wardrobe trying to find something I wanted to wear, because like I said earlier I haven’t been feeling particularly inspired by a lot of the clothing I own, and I remembered this Levis skirt that I’ve had for ages. I’m pretty sure bought this in the end of financial year sales about 2 years ago, and from memory it was really cheap for Levis. I love how this skirt looks, but it’s an absolute bitch to get over my bum (and I really don’t have a big bum at all), so I’m pretty sure that’s what made me stop wearing it in the first place. Once I do get it on though it fits perfectly, but the denim doesn’t like to stretch over the little to no ass I have, so getting it to the point of being on me properly can be a struggle (but it is worth it).
And my shoes, I love these shoes so much but I don’t wear them nearly as much as I’d like to because in all honesty I find them kinda hard to style. I feel like these are one of those styles that people are either gonna love or hate, but I think they’re so cool. They’re 100% a rip off of those Miu Miu ballet flats that were really popular probably 2 years ago, and obviously I’m in no position to buy Miu Miu shoes, so when I spied these in Wittner I had to have them. I think because I’ve been into simpler outfits lately these I’ll pull out of my cupboard a lot more, at least I really hope I do.
