Casual Friday: Wash, Wear, Repeat!

TGIF all!

I’m inspired today by fashion blogger Vic Styles’ post “What is the Price of Style?”.  The post was  real about fashion blogging and the impact of social media. I follow popular fashion bloggers on social media and “ooh and ahh” over their posts too.  But I also recognize while I’m inspired by these bloggers, I don’t compare myself to them. I’m comfortable with who I am and where I’m at in my life.  I dont have to  pretend like I got it like that to go out and buy every “must have”  item.  I work full-time and have bills just like everyone else. There is no way I’m gonna trump paying my mortgage for the latest “it” shoe or bag (you can’t look cute while homeless!). There are a lot of  fashion bloggers who are wonderful fashionistas on a budget and look freaking amazing (check out  my faves My Thrifted Closet and In My Joi)  These ladies (including myself) happily recycle our wardrobes.   This doesn’t make us any less stylish or trendy because of this.  If anything it shows how creative we  can be by taking something old and reworking it in a fresh way.  Now don’t get me wrong, I would love to have the seemingly never ending wardrobes of some of my favorite style bloggers but I won’t drive myself into the poor house trying to keep up with them and neither should you. So go ahead and express your unique individual style but don’t forget to  wash, wear and repeat!

Have a wonderful day and a great Memorial Day weekend!

    Totally agree, and it’s easy to do if you hold on to classic-style pieces. Mix them with a few inexpensive trendy pieces/accessories, and you won’t break the bank. Happy Memorial Day!

      Yes! Remixing your wardrobe is something Ive always done. It baffles me the lengths people will go to just to appear they have it all.

    So true. . .look cute & homeless!! I have never been the person to buy anything full price and now that i have limited funds I hardly shop for clothing. But, I love to see others styling & profiling. . . .

      Im the same way too! Once I bought a shirt full price and it literally made me sick! I just cant pay full price for certain things.

      Thank you!!! I really enjoyed your post and I was surprised about how superficial can be. Keep being beautiful and amazing. I wish you all the best!

    You look great, as always. I love that shade of blue! Now that I’m retired, I don’t have to stress about buying work clothes. But even when I was working, $100 could buy me a whole new wardrobe, including accessories, by shopping thrift and consignment stores.

      Thank you! I wish I was retired! I cant wait not to have to work everyday!

    Great post and great outfit as usual. I have to try the t-shirt with slacks and blazer haven’t done that yet – thanks Ms. G!

      Thank you! Definitely give the t shirt & slacks combo a try. I highly recommend it! 🙂
