Take Two












Occasion:

Confessions of a fashion blogger: I actually wore this exact outfit while D and I were on our ski vacation over Christmas weekend, but for the life of me, I can't find the pictures that D took anywhere on my camera or in my iPhoto library. So I ask you dear readers: if a style blogger wears an outfit, and no one sees it (except the people I met that weekend, who I may or may not ever see again - and D), does it really count?? Isn't that what style blogging is about - documenting daily outfits for the world to see? So you see, really I had no choice but to rewear the exact same outfit:) 

Rewearing this actually worked out perfectly because as soon as I put this outfit on the first time, I LOVED it! I really like the look of the patterned button-down underneath the sweater. The sweater is just sheer enough to show through a bit - which I think is pretty cool:) I paired the shirt/sweater combo with my favorite denim pencil skirt. The accessories finish off the outfit - a matching pink beret, camel colored equestrian boots and a wooden circles necklace all complete the ensemble.

Outfit:

Shirt: J.CREW

Sweater: J.CREW

Skirt: J.CREW

Hat: H&M

Tights: Century 21 (Hue)

Boots: Banana Republic

Necklace: Thrifted


Do you ever rewear outfits because no one sees them? Do you wear the outfit the exact same way as the first time?

I don't think there's been an outfit from yours that I haven't loved. You look amazing!

That looks so warm and cozy - it must have been pefect for the ski vacation! I like the wooden necklace and how the colour "conncets" the upper part of the outfit with your boots.

Do I repeat outfits? Yes, of course! It would be somewhat frustrating to find out what I like and what works for me if I couldn't repeat it afterwards. If I already postet it, I have a day off from taking pictures the next time I wear it, that's all. And if I couldn't take pictures of something I like enough to repeat, I simply do it the next time.

@Rochel - I get into moods where I wear the same skirt for days, then i change it up and wear a different skirt for days:)

@chani - thanks! i like that the side zip is a bit unexpected and adds some interest to the sweater:)

@Ilona - it was perfect for cold, snowy vermont. i also love matching accessories and how the wooden necklace ties in with my boots:)

@mrs.marcus - yes, they are camel colored tumbled leather. i love the look of tumbled leather. i find it interesting and i love how it sometimes has imperfections but they dont matter:)
