Two-for-Tuesday on steroids

Today I thought it would be fun to do another two-for-Tuesday, mixing and matching a couple of pieces to see two completely different ways to wear an item.  But, I discovered that I’ve been wearing a lot of the same articles over and over.  So, today is actually a three-for-Tuesday.  I had hoped for this to be an infinity blog – where each outfit seamlessly transitions to the next for all eternity (or at least, the length of this post) – but there is a broken link that I would need one more outfit to fix.  Blogging goals.

First up, one of my favorite blouses from Old Navy, dressed up with a pleated skirt and jewelry courtesy of Rahab’s Rope.  I was at a work event, so whenever I do those, I try to display as much of our company’s products as possible; it’s a great sales technique (you can by these or similar pieces here).  I also just really love my plaid cherry shoes with this polka dot blouse.  Subtle print mixing at its finest.
1 - button down, pleated skirtNext, I remixed this blouse on a casual day with some Target super acid-washed jeans, and my favorite RocketDog heels (which I recently said goodbye to. Tear.)  They lived a good life. Of course, it’s not TOO casual, since I’m wearing heels and dangly earrings, but the outfit definitely has a completely different feel from the outfit above.
1 - dressed up, button downAnd lastly are my jeans recycled with a graphic tee, and given a menswear spin with my boxy blazer and oxford saddle shoes. I want to embrace this menswear trend, but I feel weird every time I do it.  Maybe I should just accept that I can’t conquer every fashion trend that comes along, no matter how hard I try.
1 - graphic tee, blazerHow do you think I did?  Three distinct looks, or would you call me out on wearing the same clothes multiple times in a week (for the record, these three outfits were not all worn in the same week).  How about menswear – do you like, love it, absolutely hate it?  What’s your favorite piece to wear over and over?

  1. Oh man I’ve been thinking about having less clothes since I read this blog the other day http://dallas.citymomsblog.com/why-i-got-rid-of-my-wardrobe-capsule-wardrobe/.
    Thoughts?
    Reading this definitely makes me feel like I could have less clothes, but I also feel like I need to shop before I could have less. Dumb, right?

  2. Actually I’ve been thinking of it for longer, since I read this http://elitedaily.com/money/science-simplicity-successful-people-wear-thing-every-day/849141/.
    What pieces would you recommend a small “I wear nearly the same thing every day” wardrobe to have?

      First of all, I’m so sorry I’m just now responding, Beth! When I go out of town, I lose track of all sense of time and responsibility.

      It’s a good question. I don’t particularly espouse to the philosophy, but I can appreciate the concept. In fact, I’m going to write a post about it. 🙂 Look for it later this week! (I figured that would be easier than typing a super long comment!)
