OOTD Weekend Vibes: Shopping In My Closet

Relaxed weekend outfit

For the next 30 days I’ve challenged myself not to purchase a new piece of clothing.

It’s not that I’m an overspender or shopaholic. The last time I even went clothing shopping was a couple months ago when I bought a new pair of jeans that I actually really need because I got paint on two old pairs of jeans including my favorite grey skinny jeans.

I don’t like to be that person who says, “I have nothing to wear” knowing full well that there’s a closet full of clothing to wear. Tell that to someone in a third world country and see the reaction you get.

This weekend I caught myself thinking that I had nothing to wear. I had spent time on Pinterest looking at cute outfits and then clicking around the Nordstrom website doing some online window shopping. I was so tempted to buy something because of their Anniversary Sale that’s going on…

As I stood in front of my closet picking out an outfit for running errands, I realized that I have so many pieces of clothing that I haven’t worn in awhile including a cute summer top with a blue and green plaid print and a black maxi skirt that I bought at Macy’s 18 years ago. Yes, 18 years! I love it because it’s a soft material and the black has never faded. Besides that, I can dress it up or down.

The black crossbody purse by Like Dreams has been my go-to everyday purse since I bought it last summer. They have a great collection of handbags on Amazon.

Hopefully this post will inspire you to dig deeper into your closet and put together pieces you’ve never worn together to create a “new” outfit!
