Back in 2012 when this blog was in its infancy and I had just discovered other fashion blogs and Pinterest I saved this outfit from What I Wore. I remember showing it to my mom and saying that I loved the patterned topper with the dark teal shirt but that I didn’t have anything like it. She pointed out that I didn’t need those exact items. Instead I just needed something black and white patterned to wear with something else that green color.

Fast forward to three years later (almost exactly!) and I found myself putting together this outfit using my herringbone vest, a dark teal sweater and my leopard print TOMS wedges.

herringbone-vest-green-sweater-3I love that I didn’t go out and try to recreate that outfit right away. I was patient and kept it saved for when I ended up with all these pieces in my closet. I acquired them each over time and have worn each of them in several different ways (examples: sweater | vest | necklace | shoes) .

I also love being able to mix and match the pieces in my wardrobe to create so many different looks. One of my goals of this blog (and my closet consultations and You Pick Wednesdays) is helping people to see that they can wear things many different ways. Don’t get stuck in a rut! And don’t rush out and buy all the pieces to recreate an outfit because chances are you’ll find that rut and stick there. Instead, if you see an outfit you love save it and know that it will always be there when you realize, hey, I DO have something similar!

    LoopLooks, you have SO inspired me to “shop” in my closet and I often find that many of the things I already have coordinate nicely together. Let’s face it….we buy what we like so there has to be some similarity. I look forward every day to your posts and thank you for helping me to see how to rock what I own!!
