Remember Pete and Repeat from when we were kids? Well that’s what I feel like sometimes when I walk into my closet. When you truly live with a capsule wardrobe, you get the most out of your pieces and sometimes it can feel a little monotonous. I almost didn’t post this outfit again because you’ve seen it before. But I’m keeping it real because when I buy new clothes, I wear and use them…A LOT.
My philosophy is that you’ll probably find it more helpful to see the same pieces styled in different ways than for me to feature a new “something” for you to buy every week. The fact is, I’d go absolutely broke if I featured new pieces in my outfits every SAHMonday and you’d go broke buying them. So to save us both money, you’ll see my pieces reused. 🙂
In all fairness though, these jeans are new. Yes, they look a lot like my other pair of frayed hem jeans but they’re a more fitted version.
This is what I wore to visit my gynecologist last week to get my hormone pellet replaced (lots of TMI in that sentence!) In the past 10 years that I’ve been going to her, she’s only seen me in real clothes (not yoga pants) a handful of times. I’m sure she seriously doubts that I have anything to do with style! So I decided to actually get dressed this time. It’s so nice to have easy go-to outfits in my closet that make it easy to get dressed, even if I have worn them a bazillion times before.
Well, hello there booty! This is the first time I’ve ever posted a pic of my backside but these jeans made it possible. Gravity has been having a field day back there the past few years. I seriously love how these jeans lift and hold me in. (For reference, if between sizes, order a size down.)
When I got home from the doctor, I immediately changed into my favorite gray tee to get busy cleaning and organizing my closet (you can see some of the carnage on my bed in this pic). My quarterly closet cleanse was WAY overdue. I hoped to have it done before the Spring 2017 GYPO Style Challenge got underway. But alas, I’m running behind per usual.
I wanted to continue wearing my bandana scarf but have it out of the way while I cleaned and organized, so I tied it off to the side in the belt loops of my jeans. Perfect solution! (In case you missed it, I did a live tutorial last week on my Facebook page demo’ing how to tie your scarf like this and six other ways, you can check it out HERE.)
As for the finished product on my closet? Well, it’s not exactly Pinterest-worthy but it is cleaned out, organized and ready for spring and summer! Go me!
My hubby installed this peel and stick wallpaper above the shelf in my jewelry/accessories area. I love how it turned out!
