I am diving deep into my wardrobe today, and I will come back up with a lot of new outfit ideas!
At least, that’s the plan. Because a few weeks ago I told you I wanted to try and fall more in love with what I own in order to try and shop less, and also just figure out what exactly is and isn’t my style. Today we are doing that by styling some items I haven’t worn in a long time, if ever. Like I said, I am hoping that this way I will get a bit more fashion inspiration, and a new appreciation for all the items in my closet.
The first outfit features these wide leg side button trousers, or whatever the right name for these is. This style was everywhere last year, which is when I got them. I have worn these a few times since then, but not nearly as much as I was hoping I would. I just find them kind of hard to style, as they are a bit out of my comfort zone. This, however, makes them the perfect item for this post. I decided to actually pair this with the exact same top situation as I was wearing the day I got them. I remember loving the combination, so I don’t know why I’ve never worn it out. For shoes, I decided to keep things casual with my white Adidas sneakers, but I think this would also look so good with my Dune London heels.
For outfit number two I decided to go with a dress that I got during one of my sister’s closet clear outs. I love the look, it’s so casual and easy, but because of the weather I haven’t been able to wear it yet. I thought I’d just try out some things, see what I like with this dress, and I ended up with this cute little combo. This blazer is just one of my favourite items right now, so I am wearing it again with this outfit. I love the casual but kind of dressed up with the blazer look. For the shoes I decided to step out of my comfort zone a bit and wear my new cowboy boots instead of sneakers. I love this look, and can definitely see myself wearing this combo out.
Outfit number three features a little skirt. I got this one from my grandma and had my mom shorten it a bit to fit my style a little more. But I still find myself not reaching for it, usually choosing jeans over skirts for the most time. However I honestly love this outfit. It is a bit fancy, but still very much my style, and I feel like I could wear it to work or date night or something like that. I paired the skirt with a striped t-shirt, tights to cover up a little bit more – but I think it would also look very nice without them – and my beloved heeled booties that I wear all the freaking time. Yes, I can totally see myself wearing this.
From fancy to casual with outfit number four. I chose this little red cardigan as my next item to style. I have this in black and wear it all the time, but I don’t reach for the red one as much so I thought I’d try to style it. I paired it with a cropped top and my Zara mom jeans that I love, the cardigan is a bit of an extra layer that I could take off in case it gets warmer if I were to wear this out. And I think I will wear this out, as I love the super simple, casual look. My favourite way to wear these jeans is with Adidas Superstars, so I couldn’t not do that with this outfit.
And lastly, an outfit that I did not think I would love, but actually really do. The item that I find hard to style in this look are the trousers, mostly because they don’t fit me perfectly, but also because.. I don’t really know actually. But I decided to give them a shot, and ended up loving it! The trousers are a very pale pink and kind of in between casual and preppy. I wanted to keep the outfit nice and breezy with this cute flowy top that I got from my sister in another closet clear out she did recently, and I absolutely love it. For the shoes I was going back and forth between my loafers and my heels, but decided to go for the heels for a more fancy look.
Well, I feel like I did pretty good. I ended up with 5 new outfit ideas that I can see myself wearing out of the house, and I will honestly do my best to do just that in the upcoming months, although maybe with a few little tweaks depending on the weather/occasion.
I hope you got some new outfit inspiration as well, or maybe just feel inspired to dive deep into your own wardrobe and try something new.
Thanks for stopping by ❤
