Play it Again

In this outfit:
Dress: Vintage via Avalon Ex. ($15)
Jacket: Forever21 ($20 old)
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell "Rumi"
Bag: Vintage Coach, thrifted ($10-ish)
Bracelet: Thrifted ($2)
Belt: J.Crew (sale- old)

What do you wear when you're in a rush, really tired, and really hungry? An old stand-by, that's what. Perhaps an outfit that you were recently reminded of- like in yesterday's post- one that's easy to throw on to get you out the door fast. Yesterday evening I attended a networking event almost immediately after work, I should have gone straight there, but my work outfit was just a little too casual for the occasion. Knowing that this outfit would work, I just threw it on and ran back out the door.

Do you wear the same outfit more than once? I do it all the time, having a few outfits on rotation is perfect for when you sleep in, or just want an easy day. Which is also why I don't typically post pictures of the same outfit twice, I'm usually wearing it because I just needed a day off from taking pictures.

Happy Thursday!

Oh my goodness, yup sure do... I sometimes wear the same/or a variation of the same outfit several times a week, but since I work from home, no one is the wiser!! ;)

I can see why you reached for this outfit - it's an absolute stand out, really pretty! And have I told you that you (always!) have the most perfect top knot, like ever?! Seriously, I kept admiring it in Austin, hehe! ;)

Love it! That belt is so perfect with this dress!


Ooo I love, love that coat! Such a cute look!

I am so glad you repeat outfits as well! And, a super darling one to boot. I feel like I repeat all the time. I'm trying desperately to change things up, and not shopping this summer, which makes it even harder. Thanks for the inspiration!

I remember reading that Audrey Hepburn had one black outfit she would wear every day but she had a scarf that she would style differently with it every that is smart!!!

The print on that dress is insanely cute and I love how the hot pink modernizes it! I try not to wear the EXACT same thing (switch up accessories, shoes, etc) but sometimes, when I'm nervous for an event, it's nice to know I've worn it before and it works!

Sade said...

I do this all the time! Im a typical lazy student and most of the time I just throw in the same Jumper/Jeans combo and jazz it up with accessories!

The print on this dress is amazing. For a throw on outfit, you still look remarkably put together!

your dress is so pretty, and I love it with the neon belt!


Bad Taste Toast said...

Of course I wear the same outfit more than once, it#s so good to not worry about what to wear the next day when you found a nice outfit the day before ;)

The pattern on your dress is so cute, I love the combo with the cool denim jacket! And the boots are great!

Love love the shoes and jacket!!! And yep, I do repeat outfits! sometimes I'll switch the shoe or the accessories but it's an easy way to have something you know goes well together in a hurry :)

Val said...

I totally have outfits that I gravitate towards when I'm tired or grouchy or just don't want to put a ton of thought into it that day. It's so comforting to have that go to dress for those days.

Also, I'm super intrigued by how you knotted your belt. You fancy fashion blogger girls always amaze me with your belt skills!!
