reworking the wardrobe

I have Pinterest to thank for this outfit. I always keep a style inspiration board and collect outfit ideas as I go along. I love to remix items I already have in my wardrobe. I may not have the exact piece but I still might be able to put a similar outfit together. 

When I am having one of those days where I stare into the wardrobe and think 'I have nothing to wear', this is when I reach for my Ipad to find some inspiration. I like to layer in the winter so here I have on a t-shirt with a denim shirt and black jacket. I finished the outfit off with my old faithful jeans and a big scarf




















Where do you look for inspiration?

Linking up with Logan at Southern Sunflowers & Coffee Beans, Patti at Not Dead Yet Style, Molly at still being molly and Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy.

Have a lovely day.

  1. Hi, Rachel. Love this re-worked outfit. Great staple pieces all brought together for a great look.
    I have a folder of inspirations I find that is compiled of outfits I see on other fashion blogs....but mostly, if I see something that inspires, I immediately go to my closet, put something together similar and photograph it for my "potential outfits" folder. Then I always have numerous outfits at the ready to choose from.

  4. You look great, Rachel, the beautiful big scarf and red bag really make the whole outfit something special. Hmm, inspiration; I don't really know where mine comes from! Blogs sometimes, but usually what I wear depends on my mood and what first comes to hand in my wardrobe. I'm not very organised, so it's all a bit random! xxx

    1. Thank you so much, Curtise. The bigger the scarf, the better for me! You certainly don't look like you make random choices as you always look so well coordinated and lovely xxx

  10. Hi Rachel, I love your layers. And I have scarves that size and I'm honestly inspired to drape them in the fashion that you have draped yours. I love how you've designed it to show a lot of the pattern. And about Pinterest....yep, it's my happy place too!

  13. Wonderful inspired choices! You look perfectly comfortable with your outfit, and you nailed "casual chic".
    I find checking in with other bloggers around my age, and with a similar aesthetic are some of my best sources of inspiration. Wish there were more shorties like me!
