Shopping my Wardrobe

Wednesday, 22 January 2014

I go through phases with Pinterest where I don't go on it for months, them I'm literally on it daily. Now all my wedding-y stuff is pretty much all planned out (at least in my head) my current addiction to Pinterest comes from the concept of 'Shopping my Closet' (or wardrobe as us Brits say.)

I've recently changed job, and without completely changing my look, I wanted to start dressing a little bit smarter for work so that my weekend clothes were, in comparison, much more casual, but I didn't want to go out and buy a completely new wardrobe, which is where this idea came in. Instead I pick out certain items in my wardrobe and type their description into Pinterest and basically just see what outfits come up! And if something comes up that I know I have other items similar to in my wardrobe, it gets pinned. Rather than pinning beautiful dreamy outfits that I've never got a hope in hell of either wearing or owning, my pinning is much more based around what I already own, or items that are easily added.

So for example, after a few days of Pinterest absorption I decided it was time I added a black blazer to the collection (I did have one once but it was too big so it went on eBay and I ever replaced it. ) Cue lots of pinning of outfits involving 'black blazers' or 'black blazer with jeans' and other variations of the same. Also recently added has been a pale pink blazer which I'm more than a little bit in love with, and since buying my grey Zara city bag, grey is definitely a colour I'm wanting to add more of to my wardrobe - it will look amazing with the pink blazer!

With this idea in mind, I wanted to share with you a few of my recent pins that are on my 'to wear' or 'worn' list, as I've already been sporting some of these looks! If you saw my last post, you may be able to spot the inspiration below!

  1. Grey and pink is one of my favourite colour combinations. Thankfully I've never been on Pinterest, I fear I would lose all of my time if I did. But I like the idea of pinning the things which are going to be of use to you.
