REINVENTING OLD PIECES IN YOUR CLOSET

Last week I went to the mall to see if I could find some cute fall pieces to wear to NYC the two days I was going to be there. I had zero luck and actually ended up wearing old pieces on both days of the conference. Which I am totally fine with because I saved a little bit of money. I love going through my closet and re-inventing new outfits with old pieces.

 Whenever I have an event or conference, I literally go blank for a couple of days and have no idea what I want to wear. So my source for inspiration is always my IG saved "Outfit Inspo" files or Pinterest of course. I find that looking only for a little inspiration sparks my creativity instantly. And I know that for me, wearing old pieces different ways, takes my confidence from 0 to 100 in no time. 

Here are some tips when you are feeling in a rut and how to create new outfits using old pieces in your closet: 

1. Think outside the box. I am talking wear summer dresses with turtlenecks... oversized jackets and over the knee boots. Mix it up and be creative! 

2. Get on Pinterest and search for the occasion - i.e.: Casual Fall Outfits or Skirt with Over the Knee Boots... the results are almost endless. I can guarantee you will have at least 2 pieces to a look. 

3. Think basic! And I don't mean be a basic bish! Think basic pieces... solid turtlenecks for fall, white tees throughout the year and of course denim, denim and more denim. Whether you are think denim skirt, jeans or dresses - possibilities are endless.

4. Blazers save lives! You can take an outfit from meh to "woah baby okuurr!" in no time with a nice long-ish blazer. I love them because you van wear them in so many ways. Think over dresses, with the white tee and jeans and even for the office. Blazers are such great investments and don't be boring, mix it up with color and print.
Don't be afraid to dare. My 2 looks at the conference were completely old pieces and honestly I loved them both so much! So always take a breather and rethink, the possibilities are endless my friends!
