My Own Rules Were Meant to be Broken

6.25.2012


{ F21 top, skirt, sandals, & ring | mom's necklace | vintage watch | Target sunnies }

Back in high school, I always made it a point to never wear the same article of clothing twice in one month (as if anyone would notice), so here I am wearing this denim top twice in one week! "Shame on you!" is probably what my 16-year-old self would say, but phooey on her. I love taking a staple piece and remixing it in different ways. You guys don't mind, right?

  5. Hahah, in high school, I wasn't exactly the most fashionable or interested in fashion, so my rule was never wear the same thing twice in one week. :)
    Anyways, that denim top is indeed adorable, and the tribal pattern skirt is awesome too!

  6. twice in one week was my rule, especially not the same thing on the exact same day one week later--but now, psh :). That top is super versatile and the whole outfit looks great!

  34. I like your rule, since I only wear dresses and skirts all year long, my rule is to wear the same item of clothing once every two-three weeks :) I love this outfit, such a wonderful combination, especially that tribal print skirt!

    By the way, your blog is so wonderful and I gladly followed you, could you please follow me back? :)
