Continually Scramble The Familiar

If this outfit looks familiar it is because it is a copy of the outfit I use in my header. A great motivation to never repeat a certain outfit would be making it your header image on your blog and being forced to see it every day. However, I still love this dress and vest and I wanted to wear them together again. Since the shoes and tights are different I suppose it isn't a head-to-toe copy, but there was clearly no sartorial transformation. I'm definitely not against repeating garments, but I do usually try to avoid repeating an exact outfit. I sort of turn getting dressed into a game and the big rule is to only wear every combination once, but I'm also against not letting yourself wear something because of some silly rule...so, here I am breaking one of my personal "rules." After all, my number one rule is that getting dressed should be enjoyable.

  5. my thoughts are this: if you love it, wear it. it doesn't matter how many times you've worn it before, what matters is that you're comfortable and happy.

  6. you certainly have a talent when it comes to mix and matching rebecca ! i try to not wear a similar styling more than once as well.. i try to discover as much mix and matching possibilities out there !

    i actually didnt even realize that this is the same outfit as the header.. lol..

  9. The game of trying to come up with as many different combinations as possible strangely reminded me of that scene in Clueless where Cher is picking out which outfit to wear via her high-tech 90s computer. I try to resist the same too, but some outfits I love too much! I love the action shot where you're crossing from one rock to another!

  11. Blogging has put me into this same sort of mindset. Although, there are times I love an outfit so much I can't help but wear it over and over again. But I do enjoy the challenge of pairing things up differently every time.

  12. My number one rule for getting dressed is 'Don't forget shoes' can't express how many times I've walked out shoeless...
    This is a wonderful combo btw, I love it, and that waistcoat is divine.

  13. The scenery is way different too. Love the outfit and great combinations just have to be worn more than once.

  14. I'm so so so much lazier than you but I often repeat outfits--sometimes I get into a rut and I'll keep pairing the same three things together. I love your elvish shoes and I think the make any outfit looks adorable and sprite-like.

  18. I think the new shoes definitely spice it up (I did immediately think, hey it's the header outfit - but I dont think that's a bad thing).

    This is timely because I am wearing an almost repeat outfit to work today but I mixed it up with a different blazer and different shoes. :)

  19. It's a classic look! So what if you've worn it before? You look lovely (:

  40. I totally agree with your philosophy on dressing. And I just love how you write about clothes.

  41. I've always subconsciously adhered to the no-repetition rule. Once it's done, it's done! Unless it's sweltering summer and I can only bare to clothe myself with a tank top and cutoffs and sit in front of the fan with a book all day. Then I repeat what's cool and comfy. I also love that you think of it as a game because it totally is, even a puzzle.
