Lately I’ve been finding that I’m going back to pieces that I used to wear to death as a teenager. I get a real sense of nostalgia when reaching for them, they can bring back lots of fond memories for me. Of course I’ve had to find a way to style them so they are more ‘age appropriate.’
I seem to be pinning lots of outfits involving trainers lately. So when I finally got my hands on a new pair of converse I had lots of inspiration on how to style them up. I remember buying my first pair when I was about 14/15 and wearing them until they had holes in a practically fell off of my feet.In The ‘band tee’ – something I always wore as a teenager. I had a drawer full of them. Mostly because I was at 3 gigs a week minimum back in high-school and I bought one at every merch stand I could. Most of these have had to go to charity as I’m not the size I was at that age.
I like the way band tees look with denim so I decided to style it up with a simple denim skirt. I wanted to make sure I could still wear these pieces in a more sophisticated way, as I’m actually not far away from 30 now (no way I hear you cry).
To dress up this outfit it was all about adding a little bit of luxury for me. This suede jacket from Mango is a firm favourite in my wardrobe now. I’m not one of those people who announces their love for something only for it never to be seen again, so expect to see this jacket a whole lot more. That kind of reminds me of this blog postby Katherine, I’m not a bad influencer for wearing old clothes am I? Plus I’ve linked something similar below *insert winky face*
I feel like a piece like this can elevate any outfit. Of course I finished off my look with THOSE statement earrings from H&M. And the straw bag I can’t seem to put down lately.
What pieces have you resurrected from your past wardrobes?
