Cardigan: Banana Republic
Boots: Steve Madden
Scarf: BurberryThanks to everyone who left me nice "get well soon" comments on my last post! Thank goodness it was truly a 24 hour bug, and I was feeling completely better the next day, but man, those 24 hours were BAD.
I wore this outfit a week or two ago when I was feeling a little bit "blah" and the last thing I wanted to reach for was constricting jeans or anything with a belt. I also was in no mood for colors, so black, brown, and taupe it was.
Funny thing is, everything in this outfit was bought in 2008 or 2009. The cardigan may be the newest item with a November 2009 purchase date (I looked up the order confirmation email), but the dress was bought as a maternity dress when I was pregnant with P (he turns four this year). So yep, I wear a lot of old stuff around here.
I think I'm going to try to dig out the OLDEST wearable item in my closet and see how I style it now. Wearable item because I'm not talking about those holey t-shirts that I've saved since 1990 or my prom dress hanging in the back of my closet. The oldest thing I can think of off the top of my head dates back to around 2005, but I'm SURE I can find stuff from college or earlier if I dig hard enough. Anyone else want to do this with me? If enough of you show interest, I could set up a linky party and we can all go around to each others' blogs and laugh at how old our clothes is. :)
