Hello my dear readers,

So sorry for the lack of outfit posts lately – sometimes life gets the best of us. Hope you can forgive me and will still continue to follow along. I have lots and lots of fun new things planned for the Style section of my blog!  

This post is coming out a little later than I intended, but here you are!

I wore this outfit 3 days in a row. Let me tell you, I have a habit of doing this sometimes and I feel no shame. To those people judging: stop focusing on what I’m wearing and go about your business. I was feeling this outfit and wanted to play it out as long as possible.

By wearing this outfit for a few days in a row, I was unintentionally saving on energy from washing clothes. However, I do consciously believe in sustainability when it comes to fashion. SO MUCH clothes get dumped into our landfill and we should all be aware of the trash we toss, as it never goes away. I know there are people who go weeks wearing the same clothes and it’s a stretch to include this to be a contribution to sustainable fashion, however this day in age with what is normalized in our society where everything is taken for granted, we should do whatever helps.

If you’re not ready to be bold and wear the same outfit 3 days in a row… there are other ways to be resourceful and go unnoticed for it. Here are 2 ways with 2 clothing items in your closet.

  1. Jackets: You may or may not already do this. After you wear it once it’s unlikely wearing it again will attract as much attention as if you were to wear the same shirt again in the same week. I usually wear the same jacket for 2 weeks at a time before it goes into the wash.
  2. Jeans/ Pants: I don’t know about you, but I wear jeans over and over again all the time. It’s something I’ve been doing for years. I have a thing for jeans so I made sure to purchase higher-quality jeans that fit my specific body type. Jeans or pants should go with most things in your closet so a change of a shirt can give you a fresh new look.

TIPS:

♦ When re-wearing and re-hanging clothes, opt for a cruelty-free & eco-friendly closet deodorizer so you can place it back into your closet with all your other clean clothes worry-free. Or do what I do –  I created a clothing rack/ space outside of the closet for clothes I’m going to re-wear.

♦ Washing clothes less keeps the quality intact longer. The more you wash a clothing article, the more it fades and the more it ages.
