Unless you’re made of money, most of us have probably exhausted our winter clothing budget. Although it has been getting a teeny bit warmer, I’m still not ready for full-on spring attire. So I thought this was a good time for a closet revival. I kinda like the sound of that…closet revival. Maybe I’ll make it into a regular series. I went thru my closet and picked out a few items that I hadn’t worn in a while and thought I’d revive them by styling them in a new way. Most of us already do this on a regular basis so it’s nothing new. Whenever I go thru my closet, I always find a few items that I forgot I even had. It’s like finding money in your pocket you forgot was there. You feel like you’ve gained something even though you’ve had it all along. It’s funny how I kind of see these items from a new perspective and I start mentally pairing them with different things that I hadn’t thought of before and then all of a sudden it’s like I have a whole new set of outfits!
With the exception of the bag and shoes, I’ve featured all of the items in this outfit in previous posts (Forever 21 tee | BCBG blazer | Paige jeans). I love the fact that this “revived” outfit went perfectly with my new bag and shoes. I absolutely love these Aldo heels. They’re comfortable, not too high and I love the combination of texture, prints and colors. I adore the look of high heels but I can’t walk in them. Anything over 4 inches makes me feel like I’m walking on stilts. (I talk about this in a previous post.) So even though I always find myself swooning over really high stiletto heels, the practical me always ends up opting for the lower than 4-inch heels.
Today’s natural high: I’m always honored to be included in the How I Wear My series and have so much fun seeing how all the stylish ladies wear the featured item of the month. This month’s featured item was boots. Check them out at The Rich Life (on a budget) and Everything Just So.
