Rediscovering you wardrobe
 
Rediscovering you wardrobe
 
 
 
I’m not always the best when it comes to creating new outfits out of what I already have in my wardrobe. I’m a serious outfit repeater and am definitely guilty of saying ‘I have nothing to wear’ as I’m looking at a fit to burst wardrobe. I love using Pinterest and instagram to inspire different outfit ideas...but always end up trusty ones I always wear, or panic buying a whole new outfit I’ll probably wear once and then decide I hate.
 
Since the explosion in the news about fast fashion, I’m now even more aware than ever about how bad this mind set and habit is, not just for my bank account (which just hates me permanently) but also because of the effect it has on the environment. If you haven’t watched the Stacey Dooley documentary on BBC3, then I would hiiiighly recommend! 
 
It made me rethink how I looked at clothes and inspired me to question if I could wear the item in more than one way. I think it’s easy to fall into the trap of seeing celebrities or influencers rocking a cracking look on Instagram and then going on the hunt to find the exact outfit to recreate the look. I know I do this all the time. I mean, wouldn’t we all be lying if we said we didn’t all have an ‘outfits’ board hidden away on Pinterest! But half the time, if I step back and think, I probably own a very similar piece I could recreate my own version of the outfit with, that would suit me better than trying to find their exact piece. With this in mind, I set my self a challenge. ‘No spend February’. And lemme tell ya, challenge it was. It made me seriously realise how often I’ll buy a new outfit or garment because I feel Like I own no nice clothes, or just because it’s Tuesday and I’m bored at work (don’t judge, we’ve all been there) and also made me realise how much of my wardrobe I just don’t wear anymore. 
 
With a new season on the way, I’m really keen to have a big clear out of everything I’ve not worn this winter and only keep the items I love. I know I own some beautiful pieces, I just need to fall in love with them again!!
 
If you have any suggestions on how to rediscover your wardrobe, I’d love to hear them, I’m in such a style rut so any advice is hugely appreciated!
