My mom just wrote about how she hangs onto her clothes for a long time and keeps things in rotation. I have to admit: I do the same thing. I’ve had some clothes for 10 or 15 years.
Unlike mom though, I do have a steady stream of clothes that leave my place too. I buy/trade clothing on a regular basis, but I also donate pieces I don’t wear to clothing exchanges so others can enjoy them.
Jacket: Guess via swapped
Sunglasses: Old Navy
Bag: Alchemy Goods
This look reuses my asymmetrical striped top and red wedges. I wore both pieces with a different pair of khaki capris last year.
These cuffed pants have been on the blog since I started it. I just keep coming back to them. Today, I added a denim jacket (cool breezes be damned!). I’m also carrying my recycled tire bag from Alchemy Goods. And, my newest tattoo is peeking out!
It makes sense that wardrobe staples like khaki pants, a striped shirt, or a denim jacket stay in rotation. Those types of items are worth splurging on (even though, in this case, I got them free or cheap). A crazy trend, like my red shoes, I wouldn’t spend a lot on–I might tire of them sooner than the “classic” pieces.
What pieces to you keep turning to and wearing again and again?
