If you are arriving from Pinterest, welcome!
Feel free to stay for a while and take a look around!
The number one question I get asked again and again is — “How do you afford all of those clothes?!”
Well, I don’t.
I just wear the same thing over, and over, and over, and over again in new ways (See? I bet you didn’t notice how much I wore that chambray top haha).
Recycling items is especially important in the winter. When sweaters cost $70+ a pop, you probably aren’t snatching them up like hotcakes the way you do with $30 sundresses in warmer months (I’m definitely not). So I compiled a few of my secrets below to help you double your winter wardrobe without buying a single thing.
♥ Layer: I can’t stress enough how important it is to layer effectively . You can wear the same sweater with different button downs and blazers until the cows come home and no one will be the wiser. My girl Molly over at Still Being Molly put together an amazing post about how to layer. Check it out.
♥ Use your basics: That plain blue blazer and perfect tartan shirt? That white cable knit sweater? Those dark jeans? Keep wearing them. Those four basic pieces can create a ton of cute outfits. Check out the different ways I wore the same J. Crew flannel here, here, and here.
♥ Don’t forget about your jewels: If you’re like me, you have tons of random jewelry lying around. Jewelry can completely change the look of your outfit and breath new life into something you’ve worn before.
♥ Approach your closet with a positive attitude: One lesson I have learned from blogging is to look at my closet like a lovely little (super messy) boutique. If I approach my closet thinking that I have nothing to wear, then I will inevitably get discouraged. I have tons to wear (and so do you!). Sure, I may have worn that purple gingham tons of times and my celebration jacket may not be much of a party anymore. But I can certainly wear it again in a fresh way!
What tips do you have to double the size of your wardrobe without buying a thing?
