I think it’s high time for another round of wardrobe reinvention! Whenever I feel the routine creeping in, I know it’s time to have fun and create outfits I haven’t put together before.
As you might have guessed, I’m not an office gal. I’m a musician, and thankfully, that and being a student allow me the freedom to dress however I want. So, a corporate type of clothing like the basic women’s button-down doesn’t often find it’s way into my daily style. But, since I do own a button-down that I got from a thrift store some years ago, and it’s still hanging in my closet, I was up for the challenge.

To make the shirt more me, I removed the collar, although a collared shirt would work equally well, if not better, in these ensambles.
For the first outfit, I paired the button-down with a fun polka dot knit and added a pleated skirt. A fun fact – the skirt is thrifted, but the label says Zara Kids! Ha! It’s adjustable in the back with elastic, and I love it, because it allows me to alter the hight where I can wear it. Loosen the elastic and but the skirt on the hips, tighten the elastic, and wear it up high.
Oh, and the red tights and leather boots were a must for this outfit.

The second outfit might be my favorite, because it combines all the elements I love at the moment. A comfy pair of jeans, a basic piece and a pop of color. I’m so craving colors lately, so naturally I had to find a way to make the basic white shirt a little bit more colorful.

The third outfit is perfect for winter! It’s got layers and warmth, and it’s cozy. And I love the white retro boots form my Mom’s closet. They are quite a bit worn, but I’m hoping I can give them a little update with some glue and oil. We’ll see. I don’t dare to take them out on the slippery icy sidewalks yet, but once the snow clears, I’d love to wear them.
Did I mention how much I love wardrobe reinvention? If not, you should know I love it a whole lot! Hopefully the next installment will be soon.
