I have some weird tendencies when it comes to wearing anything “new.”
Let’s say I have a new pair of shoes, and a new sweater. I won’t wear the new shoes and the sweater together until I’ve worn them each once, with other items I already have. Before you think I’m nuts, I need to elaborate. I promise there’s a logical explanation!
I love the feeling of wearing something new. We all do! So, if I wore both items together, I’d only have that experience of wearing something new once. By wearing each item separately, you get the “new” feeling twice! It’s basically more bang for your buck.
When it comes to weekend wear, I try to get a little bit more creative with what I do have on hand, rather than “wasting” something new. If I look ridiculous at the drug store, it’s way less of a fashion crime than if I sported a horrible outfit into the office, isn’t it?
For instance, the other day, I gave the whole shirt-tied-around-your-waist-like-it’s-1994 look a try. Of course, I gave it my spin by wearing a floral top (because I love florals). The modern take on grunge is a look I’ll be sporting again this fall…maybe even with a new flannel button down and sneakers. Just, not together.
What I’m Wearing:
Jeans – Black Denim (Similar)
Bag – Roots (Same)
Necklace – Crafts&Love (Same)
Do you have any weird tendencies when it comes to wearing something new, or am I alone here?
