Happy Friday 🙂
Being stylish is not about following the newest trends or owning the latest clothing items. Many of us fall for the trap of fast fashion and end up getting stuck in a viscous cycle of constantly buying more and more, because our closets are filled with last season clothes that we don’t want to wear anymore.
Having a sustainable blog has pushed me to see shopping as an investment activity, and develop closer relationships with everything I own. I appreciate high quality fabric, delicate embroideries and unique designs. With that said, I have become more thoughtful with every purchase decision I make, and I often ask myself these questions:
- Is the fabric durable?
- How long will I wear this item for?
- Does the color and style match the rest of my closet? (I usually think of 3-4 different pairings in my head)
- Do I already have similar items?
Asking myself a laundry list of questions before purchasing comes with many benefits. For one, I buy less. Second, I have become more creative and stylish using my old clothes. Here, I created this outfit using old items (3+ years), and a new floppy (100% wool) that I got from & Other Stories.
Hope you enjoy the outfit!
Smile and style on!
