Wardrobe Revamp and Remix, Anyone?

Hi pretties,

Today, I was inspired by The Tiny Twig to revamp and restyle and remix and re-everything-else my wardrobe.  Spring break is doing wonders for my relaxation, but I needed to finally do something at least mildly productive.  So, after some major room spring cleaning, I headed to my wardrobe…

First, I gathered all of the clothes I haven’t worn in the past 6 months, or the clothes that I put on and then immediately take off because they never fit quite right or look quite nice enough.  You know, the shirts that are too tight in the wrong spots and the dress that’s awkwardly short or long?  You probably have no need for it!

Then, I looked at what remained.  What I saw were a lot of stripesloose v-neck teescardigans, and skinny jeans.  After thinking about it, those are really what I feel most comfortable in, with some v-neck sweaters in neutral colors thrown in for good measure.  I also discovered that as much as I love H&M in the store and on the racks, their clothes just do not have staying power in my closet, with the exception of one cardigan and one sweater.  Their clothes simply don’t fit me.  Another surprise?  A lot of the basics in my wardrobe (jeans, long sleeve v-necks, lacy tank tops) were from Abercrombie.  Their clothes fit me well and I end up keeping them for years.  But that’s just me!  

So, I made myself a newly revamped and recharged style Pinboard on Pinterest.  I would absolutely love it if you would check it out!  I would also love to see my readers’ styles, so follow me on Pinterest and I’d love to follow you in return, or post here with a link so I can see what you’re up to!

PS: If you haven’t clicked above, you should definitely check out The Tiny Twig, especially her 31 Days to a No-Brainer Wardrobe posts!  They’re incredible, and Hayley makes sure to not cater to only one body type or budget.  She’s brilliant!

Safe & sexy,

Sarah

    I checked out the Tiny Twig’s posts on the No-Brainer Wardrobe and man, it’s already making me realize things about my wardrobe and shopping choices that should have been obvious ages ago! Thanks for the rec, and awesome post :)

      Thank you so much! I know, isn’t it incredible? I thought her breakdown of essentials, staples, and other parts of your wardrobe were incredibly helpful. It turns out I have a wardrobe full of outfit finishers, and way fewer essentials or staples! Explains a lot about the 25 minute getting ready process I find myself faced with haha. Have you started purging your closet? I couldn’t believe how many things I hadn’t worn recently!

    I just followed you on Pinterest! I love the look of your wardrobe re-mix. Lots of clean, nice, basics. I practically live in skinny jeans or black skinnies & comfortable shirts. Keeping my clothes simple leaves lots of room to have fun with my shoes & bag :)

    I find that H&M stuff doesn’t always fit me either (or it loses it’s shape when I wash it). I feel like some of the clothes are cut funny so they look great on the hanger but don’t always work on my body type….so, it’s not just you!!

    PS. Finally writing back to your email!
