I will be linking up to The Pleated Poppy today with my weekly outfits, but I am also going to tell you how I have been using Pinterest to help me come up with new outfit combinations from my own closet. It is no secret that I love fashion. But at the same time, we live on a fairly tight budget. In the past year or so, I have been rethinking my wardrobe. I have A LOT of clothes! And I mean A LOT! But I have been trying not to buy as much as I used to, and instead to use what I already own to make fresh and stylish outfit combinations. I have also been trying to spend my money on more basics that I know I can wear with several different things.
Some people might not know this, but I keep most of my clothing for a very long time. People often tell me that I never wear the same thing twice. But I am just fooling them. I actually keep my clothes for a long time, and I wear them several times. But the one thing I try not to do is to wear the exact same outfit combination over and over again. Therefore, since I am mixing and matching items in my closet, it appears that I don’t wear the same thing twice, when in actuality, that is very far from the truth. I try to buy good quality clothes, but not spend a lot on them. I usually purge my closet twice a year, in the spring and in the fall. But since we have moved into this house, I have purged way more than I ever have. I have decided that I just don’t need as many clothes as I used to think I needed.
I am also addicted to Pinterest, and I have been using Pinterest on a regular basis to help me come up with interesting and fresh ideas for outfit combinations. I use Pinterest on a daily basis to help me decide what to wear. Strange much? Well, I promise you, if you want to mix things up in your wardrobe, use these tips and you will be addicted just the way I am! So here is the plan, I am going to show you my outfits for this past week, and in between pictures, I am going to give you my Pinteresting tips for utilizing Pinterest to help you get dressed.
