the joy of repetition

Hat & belt: Sportsgirl | Shirt & bag: vintage (via mum) | Skirt: DIY | Shoes: Opening Ceremony | Sunnies: Urban Outfitters | Rings : Markets, Sportsgirl | Scent: Chloe

Are you sick of seeing this hat yet? Too bad, because I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of wearing it. Which is basically the theme of this whole post. Each of these items are examples of things that I wear over and over again. The shoes especially are looking a bit worse for wear and are so close to biting the dust (if anyone knows where I can get my hands on a new pair – size EU41, any colour – please let me know). In fact, this entire ensemble is one that I probably pull out far too many times. It’s my go-to outfit, if you will. So, for the sole purpose of being a sticky beak, I’ll ask: what are your most well worn items of clothing?

Please excuse the slight blurriness of the photo. I didn’t realise until after I had uploaded it to my computer.

    nope not sick of it yet haha, those shoes are gorgeous!!!

  2. evie apples September 8, 2010

    definitely not tiring of this hat! my striped tees make up a seismic chunk of my go-to wardrobe. i have eight of them. obsessed much?

  3. The Velvet Bow September 8, 2010

    This is the cutest outfit, no shame in wearing it again and again when it is so lovely!

    I am really terrible because I hate wearing the same combo twice, so for that reason my wardrobe has a very high turnover as I'm always wanting something new. It's a pretty dangerous habit seeing as I am a uni student ๐Ÿ˜

  4. jess September 8, 2010

    I love that bag! My item is definitley my old denim jacket – I always find an excuse to wear it. with EVERYTHING.

  5. This is the most perfect combination! x

    Awesome sandals and hat. I wish we had Sportsgirl here *sigh, I always see stuff from there on blogs and I think that.

  12. Hannah September 8, 2010

    A grey shirt with a pastel-ish faded unicorn on it, usually paired with chambray shorts or a skirt. I've had that shirt for years, but it's so comfy, has a bit of a waist and hasn't even begun to show it's age! So I can't give it up.
    I also have 3 pairs of the same wrap-shoes in different colours ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. muchlove September 8, 2010

    nope I'm not sick of that hat. In fact, I'm starting to think I need to get one myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

    What I've been wearing often is a striped shirt (seriously, everyone needs a striped shirt!), paired with either a basic pair of jeans or a black A-Line skirt. That, plus my tan shoes and vintage bag.

  14. Nicole September 8, 2010

    um so i just found a real akubra hat in a vintage store that fits perfectly, and i haven't taken it off since.

    I love well-worn items! Being able to rework items means you have to get creative! That bag and those sunnies have most definitely caught my eyes.
