I got inspired to put this outfit together thanks to J.Crew + two outfits I've worn in the past. At first I thought "sweet, another way to wear this sweater!" and then I had a moment of "is this even 'me' anymore?" I think it's inevitable at times that we outgrow our clothes in a sense of just not being our style anymore. I still like each piece of this outfit, but something about all of it together just didn't seem as fun as it would have a few years ago. Make no mistake though - I'm still into fun/wild prints (just maybe wearing them a different way), see a review of a couple I tried on below. What styles or trends have you completely outgrown over the years?
Sweater: Collide Boutique, old (similar, similar)
Jeans: AF c/o (similar, similar, similar)
Shoes: MJR Sales c/o, old (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Purse: Gap, $16 (similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Sweater, shoes are 3 years ago. Jeans and purse are 1 year ago.
I saw both of these tops online and loved them, but I was preparing myself to be disappointed in person. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised! Both are nicer quality than what I've seen at Limited lately - the leopard is really vibrant red, and the burgundy one is really thick with nice finishes. I also love the pattern on the pink and navy striped top you can see hanging up, I hope to get it later (note: go a size up on that one!). And both pairs of pants were cute, too.
These dresses also caught my eye online. The blue one is really vibrant but I wasn't loving that you can see my bra lines slightly, and this shape makes me self-conscious. The slight hi-low hem was fun though! As for the gray leopard - I love that one so much. Also higher quality than usual and I'm sale stalking that one as well. Right now everything is 50% off but I'm hoping in the post-holiday sales it will be even cheaper!
