Do you ever feel like you have nothing to wear? I know whenever I feel this way – and say so to my boyfriend – he looks at me like I’ve grown two extra heads. In part, I think this is because we live in a world where we are constantly updating, refreshing and want things now. On Facebook, I see ads for recent clothing websites I’ve browsed. On Instagram, fashion bloggers I follow are constantly featuring new and exciting pieces, and I want those too gosh darnit! So it’s only too easy to feel like you have nothing to wear when you just spent all day looking and being tantalized with new things and your closet remained the same. You mean I only have the same five teal blouses to choose from tonight?
I’ve also come to the conclusion that I buy too many clothes for specific occasions. Maybe this is just me, but when I’ve got an event coming up I just looove to go online shopping looking for something that specifically fits the fanciness/sexiness/mood of said event. And once that’s over, I find I don’t have many places left over to wear it. Does this happen to you too? Am I just crazy? I think I need to become better at buying clothes that I can see myself wearing to various places. Pieces that I can dress up or down. More neutral colours, more layers. Things that some might consider “staple” pieces. Yes, I know I’m late the party. Maybe you are too? Let’s figure this thing out together!
Fortunately, I’ve lived in this particular outfit a few times and can happily announce that these pieces are a definite “must” for my wardrobe. The eyelash sweater can be dressed up or down (and it’s just so darn comfy that I always find myself reaching for it). The leather leggings are definitely an edgier piece, but they go with literally everything and add a little oomf to an outfit. Same goes for the black bag and black booties.
