Breaking Rules Pt. 1 | Outfit Repeater

I'm not a fashion expert by any means, I've just worn what I liked but I always followed the "rules." You know the rules:

•No white after Labor Day
•Do not mix patterns or prints
•Match your shoes with your belt and bag
•Do not repeat an outfit
Blah blah blah

I was very guilty of sticking to them but let's talk about being an outfit repeater offender. 

To me an outfit was created by the shirt and pants. I didn't see the accessories as part of the outfit, they were just accessories.  I was so concerned about wearing the same shirt so close together that I would often buy shirts that didn't make a large statement so no one would remember them. However, if I did run across a shirt that I loved but knew it would be remembered I would wait months in between before wearing it again.

But you know what? Who cares if someone remembered you wore the same shirt last week or even two days ago (just remember to wash). I love this striped shirt and I want to get the most out of it. Thanks to Cassie, I have finally began to grasp that mixing and matching accessories and layers can create so many different looks. You don't need a closet full of clothes to create new looks each week, we just have to learn to use what we have.

I wore this outfit two weeks ago.

This outfit is from last week.

I am having so much fun with my closet now that I dumped these so-called "fashion rules" and create looks that I enjoy wearing because they make me feel good.

Are you a rule follower? Or are you are rule breaker?
