Tights: Jonathan Aston // Shoes: Matalan
I've no clue what made me think of this outfit, maybe the fact that I'm trying hard to actually incorporate some of my tights into my outfits, instead of sticking with the nude and boring daily ones. I thought of these tights and then thought of this dress and then wore this outfit. And then realised that I wore the exact same one about two years ago.

This is quite a good thing in a way, as it was only the other day I was being told that it was ridiculous that I only ever seemed to wear things once - clearly that is not the case and I've accidentally proven my own point.

And that two years later, I still haven't got around to altering that dress.

  1. The print is so cool and unusual! I tend to wear the same 10 things ALL THE TIME and then leave the rest of my wardrobe to gather dust...Whoops.

    1. I do that too, despite having so much to choose from I tend to recycle the same few outfits when I'm feeling tired or uninspired.

    1. Thanks - I'm sure I'll wear it more when I've actually got around to altering it!

    1. I can't believe they're still in one piece, I'm usually such a tights-killer.

  5. How many dresses do you own?

    You've just reminded me how much I love Matalans shoes :)

  6. Gorgeous outfit! I love the colour combination.

    Even if you only ever wore your clothes once, you buy them with your hard-earned money and it's up to you how you choose to spend it! I think people who say things like that are just jealous of a person's wardrobe! xx

  7. Haha, I was always quite impressed that I managed to wear different combinations over the years. I don't think I've ever worn the EXACT same thing twice, but there have been times when I know certain shoes and dress work together so will wear again. I'm still so sad my boobs didn't fit into this dress and it had to go back, it's sooo lovely.

    1. I sometimes use outfits as fall backs because I'm too tired to think of combinations. In theory I should finish listing my wardrobe into my app and then do it from there, but it takes so much time taking the photos of every little thing.
