Tip toeing through the tea.

As we go through life there are a few things that is certain. One you will loose teeth when you are a kid, take bad school day photos, age, and stand in line waiting at stores and die slowly at the DMV. Another thing is well, you will rewear your clothes…a lot.
This blog post I am going to tip toe through some tea for you all. Not necessarily spilling it, but I want to touch on something that I have seen discussed on twitter quite a bit. Bloggers *gasp* re-wearing clothes!

Now, I do not know about you all, but I for one do not have an endless supply of clothes. I do not have that kind of money. And like anyone else around the world I re-wear things a lot. I have been living in my Uniqlo joggers. And living in my tees. The same tees. Which if you follow my blog for a long time you will have seen that I rewear things quite a bit.

So here is the question. Why are we(bloggers) apologizing for wearing the same things? I know, I know it is to keep that dear old instagram fresh right? But reality is it is not reality. And people now a days are looking for a bit more of that. A way of connecting to their fave fashion bloggers. And them seeing us wear the same outfit more than once lets people know we do it too. It would be nice to have a constant revolving closet. But it is not realistic. And while as I said it looks great for the feed we also need to share that it is ok to wear that H&M sweater for the millionth time.

Now let me say that a lot of bloggers, myself included, do from time to time get companies that send us clothes. We get paid to style them, shoot them, and wear them on our media accounts as a form of advertising. *think magazine here* And there are a lot of bloggers who are big enough to be able to borrow from PR firms and also some dept stores like Nordstrom.

And all that is part of the job and a perk. But the majority of the time and for a majority of bloggers we have what we have. And reuse what we have. Think of the closet like a packet of Legos. Thousands of possible combinations.  We shouldn’t be apologizing for rewearing the same items more than once. I have seen people, myself included do this. It is as if we are not allowed to be like the rest of the world. I am not “the other half”, I iz poor.

So, this outfit here. Rewearing my new Zara shirt, my boohoo pants, and ALDO shoes. Big deal, and I am not apologizing for it.  And you shouldn’t either.

Thanks for reading.

    Chic and cozy look dear. Can’t go wrong with the leopard shoes. Love the pop of green from the bag too.
