shopping your wardrobe

Shopping your wardrobe may seem just a motto. It may also seem a boring activity, wearing same old clothes again and again. But it's neither of them!. I think it can be a challenging and creative activity, because of all the different ensembles we can try, it's really inspiring!. And let us be honest, we have enough clothes in our wardrobes to mix and match for years and years, we are not in danger of running short of them!.
I've worn this same tunic and leggings many times and I think they make a versatile ensemble which can be accessorized in different ways. It can be both minimalistic and maximalistic, both casual or dressy, both subtle or bold. Obviously, I've never chosen the options which don't suit my own style (no neutral colors for me, please) but I know they're available and can be done in some fab styles.
So I've picked my yellow straw bag, a colorful necklace and some bracelets, but remember that lots of different colors and styles can be done!. I'd like to encourage you to wear something from your own wardrobe and accessorize it as you wish and feel free to wear it as many times as you like!. No fashion police is going to arrest you if you wear same outfit several times.
Enjoying #SlowFashionSeason and linking Secondhandseptember Party at Anne's even if not dressed in second hand (today).

Ir de compras en tu propio armario puede sonar como sólo una frase de buenas intenciones. También puede parecer una idea aburridísima, ponerse todo el tiempo la misma ropa en vez de ir de compras. Pero no es ninguna de estas cosas, creo que es una actividad de lo más entretenida, un reto de estilo y creatividad, porque hay que darle unas vueltas a todas las combinaciones que puedes crear!. Seamos sinceros, tenemos suficiente ropa en nuestros armarios como para mezclar y combinar durante años y años, no estamos escasos de ropa precisamente.
Esta túnica y leggings me los he puesto varias veces y creo que forman un conjunto muy versátil al que se le pueden añadir accesorios de diferentes maneras. Puede ser minimalista o maximalista, puede ser informal o más arreglado, puede ser de tono sutil o chillón. Claro está, nunca he elegido las opciones que no se ajustan a mi estilo (nada de colores neutros para mí!) pero sé que existen y están disponibles.
Así que escogí este bolso de paja amarillo, un collar colorido y unas pulseras, pero recordad que podrían añadírsele accesorios en montones de colores y estilos diferentes. Me gustaría animaros a poneros algo que ya tengáis en el armario y darle vida con accesorios que os gusten y llevarlo todas las veces que os apetezca. No pasa nada por repetir ropa, no viene a por ti la policía de la moda!
Seguimos en un verano libre de ropa de usar y tirar #SlowFashionSeason y enlazo a la fiesta Secondhandseptember at Anne's, aunque no llevo ropa de segunda mano (en esta ocasión).

  2. You are 100% right, shopping our own closets is the best way to help the planet and challenge our creativity.

    You did a great job in this tunic. It's the perfect backdrop for all of your fab accessories.

  3. I hear ya, sister!! I love shopping my wardrobe but I love hunting down fabulous secondhand stuff to fill it with just as much.
    Love that linen tunic on you and the jewellery is fabulous - just like you! xxx

  4. I too love shipping my wardrobe, and I'm the first to admit that it's so full to bursting that I can wear a different outfit every day for a year if I would be so inclined. Some items, like your wonderful linen tunic, can be worn time and again, and look different every time, by combining and accessorizing it differently. I think it looks especially summery with the cropped white leggings. Love those maps brooches you've made! Besos xxx

  5. Shopping one's wardrobe is a great exercise in creativity, I totally agree! I have to remind myself to do that - I don't always need something new-to-me to wear to have a great outfit. I love the gorgeous blue shade of this tunic, Monica! The map brooches caught my eye as well - I spy the UK and Italy!
