Repeat Offender 2

summer to autumn

Buy nice clothes. Wear nice clothes. Mix and match nice clothes.
Rewear mixed and matched nice clothes. Repeat.

I was wearing this exact same t-shirt and trousers combo, with the leather earrings, in Barcelona in early June. And  the trousers and poncho combo in a post just last week… 

I’ve never wanted to have a huge wardrobe. In fact, I’d like my wardrobe to fit into one suitcase. Fear not, that’s not going to happen: living in a country with four seasons means I need lots of clothes, and not just for variety…

This is my way of saying that everything you see here, you’ve seen before. And will see again, no doubt.

Anyway, I wanted to wear something ‘smart‘ for change. However, this outfit clearly wasn’t the smartest choice, given the rainy weather…

Annoyingly, the rain started the minute Professor M got the camera out. We managed to get just a few snaps before getting drenched.

By the way, I think you may see this poncho again, very soon. Just because it’s autumn now, and the weather is getting colder (and rainier) very fast, and I want to wear it while I can…

Do you often rewear the same combinations of clothes?

    Beautiful color combination. I like the reverse colors on the poncho–get all the wear you can!

      Thanks! I love burgundy and navy together, it’s one of my favourite colour combinations. And I’ve been wearing the poncho a lot, almost every day. Unfortunately, now it’s getting a bit too cold…

    This a great outfit it comes together even down to the umbrella without looking too matchy, if that is a word. I like colours to go well together but like stripes with spots, or florals or checks if the colours coordinate I don’t mind graphic clashing.

      Thanks, Flora. Yes, too matchy-matchy would be boring, there needs to be a bit of contrast to keep things interesting. I like mixing prints, too. Well, I like mixing either dots of florals with stripes…

    That poncho is great as a layer for warmth or protection from the rain! Shopping your closet is great, now that I added a few things in September, I plan to do so till November!!

      Thanks, Mireille! I have a list of items I want to add to my wardrobe, too. Shopping your closet should be the default position, but every now and then you just need to add something new to keep it interesting. I have a few items in my closet that I’d love to get rid off but I haven’t found suitable replacements yet.

    The poncho is gorgeous – and I do wear and re-wear my clothes, not only because I love them and enjoy wearing them but t because I’m thrifty and want to sustain our beautiful planet!! Although it is lovely to get something new now and then!! Have a great week and thank you for sharing!!

      Thanks, Donna! I couldn’t agree more: sustainability is important, both for personal finances and the planet.

    Your poncho is such a great colour combination. As you know I am exactly the same , buy what you love and wear it often , adding in new items occasionally as something is needed or takes your fancy.

      Thanks, Jill. Yes, when you only buy what you love, you’re more likely to wear it again and again. And you enjoy your wardrobe more: it makes you feel and look good, too.

      Thanks, Jess. I think burgundy and navy are my colours, so to speak. They always ‘work’, and therefore it’s easy to mix and match.

    Tiina, this burgundy and navy combination is fantastic and looks amazing on you. I also love the way the stripes on your trousers play off of the wider stripe on that amazing poncho. Lovely outfit! I have been shopping my closet lately and not buying anything new. I keep repeating to myself that I do not need another darn thing in my closet! So there will be repeats on my blog from here on out!
