Outfit Repeater





I think everyone's fashion choices tend to be a bit repetitive, and there's nothing in the least wrong with that...as long as we're repeating the looks we love again and again. With me, there's a lot of 'trends' you can expect to see me wearing year after year, mixed up a bit, perhaps, but those most beloved elements are still there in different incarnations.

Styles I love and am not likely to stop loving anytime soon:

- Tied-up button-ups
- Quirky earrings
- Wearing lots of rings at once
- Leggings
- Big bows tied around my waist
- Any shoelaces other than the original ones that came with the shoes. (I majorly <3 the mis-matching ones for this outfit.)
- Floral hairclips
- Sneakers
- Dresses. Particularly dresses with sleeves, and particularly anything with a fitted waist and a loose skirt...but really, dresses in general.
- Pattern mixing. Not in a strategic, planned way, just in a 'everything I'm wearing has patterns on it' kind of way.

My style is predictable, and I'm totally cool with that.

What styles do you keep going back to again and again?

I thought my style would never change...then I had a baby. 😑

Fun outfit Rachel! I not only wear the same styles again and again, but I wear the same clothes! I see articles about celebrities wearing the same outfit twice and wonder! If I only wear an outfit twice I must really *not* have liked it! Love the polka dots. Lately I have been wearing them a lot.

I also thought my style wouldn't change but over the last couple of years I think it has. I used to like fit and flare dresses all the time, now I prefer maxis.

I have always loved hats both for practical and aesthetic reasons. That and jeans might be the one constant in my wardrobe.

Leggings are my life! I'd love to wear more dresses so I'm going to have to invest in some comfy ones. Bonus points go to dresses that have pockets!

I love wearing leggings and the simplicity of them.. if only I had enough tunics/dresses to wear them with all the time!

I am definitely an outfit repeater - I love cardigans and ballerinas. I try not to wear the same thing 2 days in a row though- a lot of Germans do that, sometimes even more days in a row. Ugh....

I am! Mostly layering tank tops with long or short sleeve sweaters. It's how make my clothes work all year round in Minnesota!

Yeah girl!!! Ugh you totally copied my blog post idea!! ;) I was actually thinking about writing a post how I'm an outfit repeater and proud to be one. I can't afford NOT to be!

Yes, I'm an outfit repeater - but I do keep track of when I've worn something so that the clients I meet with will be seeing me in different outfits. I think we all find something we are comfortable with and it makes it feel good. So of course we will repeat it.

Yes! I love leggings and comfy dresses. My favorite dress has a cute cut, but it's made out of sweatshirt fabric. Perfect! Once I throw on a scarf, nobody knows I'm basically wearing pajamas.

Jessica Hughes said...

Yes! I try to wear different accessories with the outfit each time, but I am def. a repeater :)

I'm definitely an outfit repeater. I just have some looks that I love so much I can't get enough of them!

Karin Rambo said...

I pretty much wear the same thing 4 out of the 7 days of the week and I'm totally cool with it. I tell myself that it's my inner European that drives me to outfit repeat.

I'm totally an outfit repeater, but I try to mix it up a bit with different accessories.

Farrah said...

I am most definitely an outfit repeater, hahaha. (It makes life so much simpler!) I love anything comfortable (yoga pants, leggings, soft fabrics...) and have also gotten extremely lazy, so my idea of dressing up now is actually when I throw on a pair of jeans.

Liz Jo said...

When I first read this I thought you meant wearing the same clothes multiple times in a week. But yes I'm definitely an outfit repeater! Many of the dresses I love wearing I have in multiple clothes and wearing them throughout the week!
