A common misconception about bloggers is that every outfit we post is a brand new look! Well, perhaps for some – but I love re-using pieces from past outfits, staples purchased years ago, and digging out pieces from the back of my wardrobe. That’s how real women dress, right? Sometimes it just takes a little creativity and some new accessories to make an old outfit new again.

 

For this look, I put a new spin on a jumpsuit you dolls have seen before. This time, instead of a fur stole I opted for my new (and affordable) blazer!

 

To make the look even more distinctive, I added my favorite new accessory of the season – a wool, wide-brimmed boater hat from Lack of Color. I feel a little Westworld in it, and I love it! Lack of Color has such a wide variety of styles, and they are quite affordable given the quality of the hats. This one, in particular, is still in stock, so make sure to check it out. I think I might need it in cream next!

 

While the jumpsuit is old, I’ve linked some similar styles on the market now. What do you dolls think? Tell me about your favorite items you like to re-use and re-wear!

 

Blazer: River Island.  Jumpsuit options: Halston Heritage,  H&M (under $50!),  DVF.  Hat: Lack of Color.

Jumpsuits have become my thing in recent years, and I’ve got one for each occasion. I have a casual look that I wear to work, a long-sleeve to dress up and down, and even a strapless that I throw on for date nights.

 

So when my best friend was getting married this Fall, I knew that I wanted to rock a more formal jumpsuit that could be dressed up with accessories. I found this Halston number with an asymmetrical, draped neckline and wide legs. I love that this classic silhouette that has touches of drama – the exaggerated sleeve and the sash hanging at the waist are details that I can’t get enough of.

 

I felt like a sophisticated 70’s lady and potential Charlie’s Angel wannabe. Besides rocking this to my friend’s rehearsal dinner, I also repurposed it for a night out in Dublin, Ireland. With geometric earrings (the price tag will wow you) and a vintage bag – my 70’s look was complete! And just like that…this jumpsuit jumps to the top of my list of fall favorites!

 

JUMPSUIT: Halston.  Earrings: H&M (similar for $12.99!) & H&M.

A Shorts Story

Let me start by saying, summer in Florida is no joke. The heat is a killer! So on my recent visit home to Jacksonville, I was sure to pack breezy dresses and shorts for during the day. Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with shorts – because I feel like my body type doesn’t naturally lend itself to feeling flattered in them. However, on a recent Zara trip, I uncovered this high-waisted and not-too-type pair of navy lace shorts.

 

Because of the fit, I thought they would look cute with an oversized breezy white shirt which I picked up from H&M. I finished my look with my favorite espadrilles, gifted from Patricia Green! Seriously…I have them in cream, orange and the navy. They’re so comfortable and cute! Lastly, I added a touch of glam to my outfit with a gorgeous pair of earrings from Lele Sadoughi. I’m obsessed with her fun and whimsical designs that can easily elevate an outfit. The great thing about her styles is that they can be paired with casual looks like this, or add color to a more dressed-up style. You’ll see me rocking them all Summer!
