Distance is never on my side

"She called it recycling an outfit? Isn't that just wearing clothes?!"

I overheard that once, and I couldn't agree more.  It seems as though there's this unspoken fashion blogger sin of *gasp* re-using pieces in outfit posts. I don't know about you, but I don't own 365 pairs of shirts, pants, or shoes.  And hey, if I like an outfit, yes I will wear the exact outfit again. If it worked once, it's good for another go around.

Like my outfit today.  I actually didn't really think when I put this together.  It was my last day at home before going back to university and I had most of my clothes already packed up in my suitcase.  So I threw on a random shirt, a new pair of shorts, and a blazer in my closet that I've worn once or twice.  The end result was better than I expected, so I have resurrected the exact outfit with a few minor additions.  In other news, I feel ridiculously overdressed for school.  But that's like a blogger rite of passage, right?

Hello, my name is Sabrina and I reuse outfits.


What I'm wearing:
-Powder blue jacket
-Lace shorts from Forever 21
-Gold necklace from Forever 21
-Sheep ring
-Wedges from Nine West

  7. I love the mix of textures here and how, from further away, your shorts look like they have a print. Also...well-spoken post! I'm sure maybe bloggers - myself included - will agree.

  12. Love this outfit, especially your powder blue blazer. And recycling clothes isn't bad at all, and you're staying true to us, that's all that counts.

  15. No shame in reusing outfits, or pieces! Who really buys something only to wear it once? Or what if its something you LOVE to wear, you're just supposed to force yourself not to? haha. Super cute shorts btw!

  18. amen sister! I'm right there with ya! I'm a normal girl with a job and a budget and its completely unrealistic to not re-wear the same thing twice. Love what you put together!

  20. I recycle pieces over & over & over again all the time! Half the fun is pairing it with something else to make a different look! :)

  21. great outfit, love the shorts! i agree too, i can't afford to wear a new outfit everyday, and there's nothing wrong with wearing something twice! this is reality after all, not some fashion show
