Everything Old Is New Again

When I said I was reviewing everything in my closet to see if I would wear certain pieces again, I was not joking. Everything in this outfit is relatively old. Writing a personal style blog can feel challenging sometimes. I want people to feel inspired by the outfits I wear but I don't always have a cycle of new attire to showcase. I sure don't want to overspend either, although I'm sure my husband would disagree on this point anyway. So I enjoy trying to showcase older pieces in a new way. It's a challenge that's more enjoyable than draining my wallet (hah).

I really love these Zara pants. They have become such a staple in my wardrobe. I wore them so much when I first bought them and then had to put them away so I wouldn't be "that girl who only wears camo." It's an interesting contrast to wear camo with more feminine pieces like the sequin top and heels. It's a contrast I would totally mimic again.


  1. Love this! I think this is the best way to wear camo, with sequins!

  3. Wow, the blazer looks so crisp! I also, think I have this blazer haha. Looking back, I'm so sad I missed out on these Zara camo pants. They're really the perfect color and style.

  4. LOL My husband sounds like your husband! Either way, I feel you. But it always feels amazing to be able to make old clothes new again! The sparkles with the blazer and the camo are a really fun combo!

  5. LOVE the sparkly top with the camo pants. You look amazing!

  6. super cute! I hate to admit it but I think I might be that girl that always wears camp....it is a neutral for me. :)

  7. Ok. Totally in love with the look. I hated camo for so long and then have been obsessed with it recently. I love it with the sequins and the white blazer.

  8. I think I saw those Zara jeans a while ago in store and should have just bought them since I can't find a suitable pair right now. I love the ankle zippers! And it looks cute with the sequin top! <3

  23. I love the glittery sequins with the camo pants! You mix them so perfectly!

  24. Love these camo pants but soooo disappointed they're old!! Any suggestions on where I can get some? Thank you!

  25. I adore this outfit! I think it is one of my favourites!! I know what you mean by parading new clothes all the time! The pressure is there. My blog is all about how to wear the clothes I already own in as many new ways as possible. But even so I sometimes feel the need to showcase new things.


Thanks for your comment!
