A Few Favorites Restyled for Fall.

Dress: Dillard's {old} // Kimono: {Bought in France, similar here} // Shoes: Steve Madden {Bought at TJ Maxx- very similar here!} // Hat: Forever 21 {such a steal!} // Sunglasses: Le Chateau // Purse: Michael Kors // Necklaces: c/o Taudrey {smaller one}, {gift - longer one} // Bracelets: c/o Gabe's, c/o Taudrey // Lips: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie 

     Happy Weekend! Here today with another outfit from my recent overnight trip to Asheville, NC! What makes this outfit unique is that everything that I'm wearing here (with the exception of the hat!), has been worn on my blog before! I love challenging myself from time to time to pull out favorite pieces from my closet again and re-style them in totally new ways for different blog posts at later dates. (See another post like this here!) The truth is that when you're trying to stick to a budget, it just simply isn't possible to buy a completely new wardrobe for every season of every year. Past pieces will absolutely be rotated in and out. The key is to learn how to mix and match something that you wear it so that it seems new- you'll fool everyone!! :-)

      Here are the ways that I have styled the kimono and dress on the blog before:

     Totally different, right?! Yet I ended up really loving the way that these two pieces look paired together for this outfit that I brought to Asheville! I think that it ended up being the perfect Fall casual  look. 

      Sharing some of my favorite kimono picks below!!

  3. This is such a great look! I love how you are such a real blogger-normal people have to figure out how to wear the same clothes all over again & I love that you do that :)
