I don’t buy new clothes every month, so most of the time I’m trying to find new ways to mix-and-match what I’ve got. Every now and then I have a little breakthrough, where I discover a combination I hadn’t expected or a new way to style something. More often (unfortunately) I’m just reusing old ideas – like today. Elements from earlier outfits mashed together into a new one.
Possibly you might call this cheating, but I call it “functional”. My aim is not to have an enormous wardrobe, nor a “fashionable” one, but a wardrobe where all the items work neatly together to create almost-endless combinations. Because THEN no matter how behind the laundry is, or how much I’m lacking inspiration, it will still be easy to pull together an outfit.
