Some outfits are instant classics that can–and should–be worn over and over again. That’s what I’m sharing with you all today: a classic outfit I wore about five years ago that looks just as good, if not better, with a few little updates. While color is fun, I’ve never been afraid of neutrals or beige; in fact, I’m drawn to their simple, classic appearance. That’s one of the reasons I like this outfit so much! Recreating this outfit was a no-brainer when I realized that I had all of the necessary pieces in my closet.
Old outfit originally worn on May 18, 2015:
Top & Cardigan: Target | Jeans & Flats: Old Navy | Hat & Necklace: Banana Republic | Sunnies: Target
I wore the original outfit to the farmers’ market and to run some errands. I no longer have these jeans or top because I traded them both in for an upgrade. What’s really funny is that I remember feeling like this shirt was “too boho” for me so I didn’t wear it very much. It was a really nice top but I think the crochet floral top in the photo below is way more of my style.
Today’s outfit: June 24, 2020
Top: C. luce via Stitch Fix | Cardigan: Target | Jeans: Just Black via Stitch Fix | Hat: Banana Republic | Shoes: H&M
My new distressed denim fits so much better (the ON pair were too big and long while these are petite sized) and the crocheted top, in my opinion, has a more grown up elegance to it. And swapping out the flats for heels gives this outfit a fresh, modern feel. I didn’t really have anywhere to wear this new updated version so I just wore it while I was working from home. It’ll definitely be on the menu once things open back up and we venture out to more places.
