I’m giving my clothes a second chance

IMG_3760
Maybe it’s the Gemini in me but I somehow end up going through phases of being bored of my clothes more frequently than most people. It’s not even ‘I have nothing to wear’ phases, it’s entire months of thinking I will never wear certain items again. This usually ends in throwing them away and regretting it 2 years later when I wonder where my suede cowboy Zara boots are.

However, when I got that feeling again last week, I decided to give my clothes a second chance by fighting it. To prove this brown leather jacket still had a place in my wardrobe, I made myself think of outfits I could include it in and like. In this post I decided to show my favourite one: skinny jeans, a cream turtleneck to compliment the cafe au lait colour of the jacket and knee high boots. Paired with a high bun, this outfit made me feel great.

Not to ruin your read but in the end I still decided to get rid of this jacket, which now sits happily in my eBay feed HERE. However, that wasn’t because I didn’t like it. I do. It was because it's too long for my body and the only way I’ve found it looks flattering on me is with a really skinny bottom, which doesn’t make it versatile enough to keep.

Ultimately, the real value that came out of this experiment was rediscovering my wardrobe and playing around with my clothes in new ways. Honestly, I look forward to not liking my clothes again so I can try this a second time.IMG_3763
I want to hear your thoughts though, have you ever done this or would you try it?

  1. I have so many clothes I do tend to sell on a lot of things as I feel if I haven't worn it in so long that I never will x

  2. It must be us Gemini’s as I do the exact same, wardrobe clear out yearly, I grow old of the clothes and yet seem to buy similar the next year. Maybe should I give what you’re doing a go.

  3. Love this look! I should try doing this as I'm the same and end up doing mass donations of clothes that I think I don't want anymore

  5. I have never given my clothes a second chance. I either keep them or get rid. I think it's a great idea to try though as I may not get rid of items and regret it down the line!

  6. I’m the worst for suddenly finding clothes I’ve not worn in ages and wondering why I stopped wearing them haha. Maybe I should try and give them a second chance too x

  7. This is a REALLY fantastic idea. I'm really good at decluttering, and can be quite ruthless, but when it comes to my wardrobe I just cant do it! I definitely need to try this idea, and decide what to keep once and for all! xx

  8. I actually love your outfit! We just really have to experiment and mix and match so we come out pretty and fab!

  9. It’s always good to declutter and recycle your wardrobe. Sometimes we can mix and match items to create new looks.
