I've been giving this some thought. I'm always buying something new. Clothes, I mean. But I wonder why we--women, I mean-- are always in the pursuit of something new?
I get that it's exciting to have a new piece of clothing and the joy we all get when we're still pondering just how to wear it. But so often I find that after a few wears a piece will loose its luster and I'm stalking a new piece to fill its void.
It's a vicious and expensive cycle. I'm not sure why we do it. I suppose we just love falling in love with clothes and the idea of newness.
But as I decided to post this outfit, I tried to include pieces that I still get excited about wearing. It turns out that I have many in my closet, which is a really good thing.
I still get really amped whenever I wear all of the pieces I'm wearing here. The skirt from Conway is about six months old, the blouse from Gap is more than 3 years old, my shoes are over a year old. All together, I really like everything I have on. And most importantly, I'm always excited about how to style these things.
I'm even still loving this trench that I bought last year and wear at least twice a week. I guess it's proof that we may all search for excitement, but true love really does last.
I'd love to see the pieces you've owned for a long time, but still love. Or maybe outfits that you've styled years ago and still rock today.
