Dress-up: Re-inventing my wardrobe

This is the kind of post that only comes about after having spent a fair few days at home just pottering about. It’s involved some fairly awkward posing and a realisation that I think I may have to start ironing my clothes (one outfit was disqualified from this post simply because it was so crinkly).

If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that we’re avid fans of Pinterest. I’ve been collecting inspiring outfit ideas for ages now, and one day opened this page full of ideas as well as my wardrobe and started to think how I could recreate what I see on screen in real life with things I ALREADY HAVE. No purchasing needed but a frugal exercise in money saving.

We all (I assume) have moments when we stand in front of a bulging wardrobe and think: I have nothing to wear. However it’s amazing what you can rustle up when you have something to be inspired by. Here’s a couple examples (enter cringey face for posing:/)

Loosetop

I bought these trousers couple years ago and just haven’t been able to make them work. However, I love them paired with this loose top (50p from a charity shop – love a bargain) and CONVERSE. I would have never thought about pairing them with trainers (they’re silky flimsy material). Anyway, a winner combo in my books and beyond comfortable.

trench

I found this trench from my parents house and love it, but would only wear it with workwear or for smarter occasions. Having seen it dressed down I needed to give it ago. This is where it’s useful to be married to an ex-hipster (stuck in the early 2000’s). One of his old band t-shirts paired with black skinny jeans (ps. the most useful thing to own) and the trench is ready for casual outing.

So if you find yourself at home with nothing to do I highly recommend raiding through your wardrobe and discovering what you already own. And when there’s a need for new – this quote is a good one to remember.
