A Leopard Can Not Change His Spots


Curly hair looks so much better tousled than straight hair, no? With the windy weather we've had lately this is becoming my go-to style. It's always just fun to be able to do something with my hair again; your styling options are extremely limited when you have a pixie cut. This blouse is also becoming a go-to for me--it feels wonderful against my skin and layers so nicely under sweaters without adding bulk. My housemates have already commented on the frequency of wear, because at the end of most recent days I switch out of whatever I was wearing earlier in order to lounge in this blouse with a pair of shorts (over tights and socks naturally because our house is not that warm!). I remember getting teased in high school for repeating clothes; my closet wasn't that big and I would have favorite pieces that got worn often. Sitting in classes with students that had polo shirts in every color of the rainbow, my repeated pink and green striped sweater received some negative attention. That stigma of repeated clothes still remains--certainly I can "remix" my wardrobe but if you wear the same blouse twice or three times in a week, people start to comment. So as much as I might like to lapse into a literal uniform some days for the sake of social graces I promise to not wear this shirt too often...

love you hair like that!
it's kinda stupid that people comment about repeating clothes...i got that in junior high too.
i mean i'd rather wear something well made and classic more often than stock on cheap flimsy things just for the sake of variation.

I also had the repeated sweater in Jr. High... I had plenty of t-shirts but only a handful of sweaters, and my favorite one was purple, kind of bulky, with three buttons in the front, and I often wore it more than once in a week. The other girls in school were BRUTAL if you didn't wear the brand names that were popular... they went so far as to throw rocks at me in gym class and tug on my shorts trying to see the tag.

I am a clothing & outfit repeater, for sure. When I find a combination of clothing that really flatters me, I find it hard not to press repeat. Unfortunately, it would appear a lot of us had similar experiences with negative commentary in junior high. I always wonder why that time is so challenging for some of us..

Such gorgeous muted colors in these photos! And your curly tousled hairstyle looks awesome.

I have found that the only person who really cares if I repeat the same clothes is myself--no one else notices! But admittedly I don't do outfit photos so...touche.
