Repeat Offender 101

PhotoGrid_1429133348526 Do we bloggers make you feel a certain kind of pressure to keep up with every new item in stores? Who said wearing a clothing item multiple times is a crime? Note that I did not say "an entire outfit" because I fervently believe that your closet can do better than to churn out the exact same outfit from head to toe every time. Get creative.

You will see that in some outfits, actually just one, I switched out only my top and shoes. It really should be that simple and effortless, requiring a replacement of not more than 3 items to achieve an entirely new look. Interestingly, I remember the occasion I wore each of these outfits to.

Use numbers 1 - 10, L or R to comment on which outfits you liked the most. I always prefer the first look.

1. Jacquard Skirt

Hope you enjoyed this. I officially don't have clothes to wear :D

Check back periodically to see if I can dig up more outfits. Just look under the "Style" tab and this post will be there on its own, always. Tag me on Instagram (@memkoh) or use the tag #RepeatOffender to show how you styled something multiple ways. Don't forget to have fun with your clothes and before throwing them out, come back here to see if you can find inspiration.

Yours truly, Memkoh
