If you’re new to the blog, Wardrobe Reinvention is a series I started to challenge myself to find new ways to combine my existing wardrobe and through that gain more knowledge into my style.
Summer in Estonia is what it is (or isn’t) and because of that, there are summers that I get to wear one summer dress. Once. It’s not always this bad, but, I do feel I don’t get to wear my summer clothing enough. Summer is my favorite season and I love summer clothing – all the dresses and skirts and beautiful light fabrics. I miss them during the winter. So, this week I set myself the challenge of creating 3 outfits that include a very summery item. Something I usually wear only during the summer.
|dress: made by me / cardigan: H&M / belt: Tally Weijl / upcycled knit scarf: made by me / boots & earrings: thrifted|
This one is my favorite and has already had a successful outing. I love the combination of cream white and burgundy (totally rockin’ the fashion color of the season). I think it’s very me as well, I felt very comfortable in it.
|shorts & necklace: thrifted / blouse: made by me / cardigan: Reserved / shoes: Kaubamaja|
Sometimes I’m a monochromatic girl, what can I say. Although I like the ensemble, I’m not completely sure these shorts look that good on me. Perhaps I should make them just a tad slimmer in the legs. But, all in all a very comfortable outfit.
|skirt: thrifted / tee: refashioned by me / knit coat & knee-high socks: H&M / boots: no idea|
The jury is still out on this one. It’s a bit all over the place, or no? I really wanted to make this skirt work. I love the colors and pleats, but I’ve worn it only a few times. It just seems to be not working with the rest of my wardrobe.
I liked this little experiment. How about you? Do you pack away your summer clothing come fall, or incorporate them into your fall wares?
