{throwback} How I Wore It Then to Now

It's just been one of those months where I haven't been in the mood to take outfit photos or the weather has been pure garbage. So today I'm continuing with my How I Wore It Then to Now for Throwback Thursday! I may do another next wee. Perhaps with blazers.

Free People 'Jax' Patchwork Jeans
I liked this pair of jeans because they were a darker wash and more of a statement piece than regular jeans because of the patchwork and different colored denim. I got them in February 2016 so not the oldest piece in the post, but still going strong! I've worn them in a lot of different ways as you'll see below.

Saint Laurent Patchwork Blouse
Another early 2016 purchase was this Saint Laurent patchwork blouse. It is one of my favorite pieces in my closet because it will never go out of style, in my opinion, because it;s such a statement piece. With something like this you'd think there aren't many ways to wear it, but I've found quite a few.

b chyll cashmere cape
I enjoy a nice comfy cape. This is the only one I have in my closet but it's so good. It's cashmere so it feels like I'm wrapped in a blanket. I didn't get around to wearing it this Fall for some reason so maybe I'll try to wear it in the next couple of weeks on a warmer day!

Burberry Brit Flared Hem Merino Wool Cardigan
This is one of my best Net-a-Porter sale buys. I got it in 2013 and have worn it constantly since. It is nice and heavy so sometimes I can wear it in lieu of a coat which I always enjoy. The flared bottom gives it a bit more interest as well. This is actually a size bigger than I should have gotten but due to that I can wear thicker sweaters under it to stay SUPER warm.

Current/Elliott leopard print jeans
It was a pretty big deal when I bought these back in 2012. They were an item that I had been trying to find for a good price for months and finally got them on a sample sale website. They were one of the big things in that year and I loved that they were one of my favorite colors. I don't wear them as much as I used to but I still find time to wear them now.

DKNY Oversized Striped Cardigan
I love this cardigan. When I first got it in 2015 I wore it on literally every plane ride while I traveled for the first 2 years. It's so comfortable and I used it like a blanket while flying. Not only is it comfortable it has most of my staple closet colors. All that's missing is purple.

  1. I am such a fan of those jeans in the top set of images - every time I see them make an appearance here I somehow love them just a little bit more. It's honestly really impressive that you've gotten so much use of these really great wardrobe staples.

  3. I love that you've got statement pieces you still manage to keep remixing and getting tons of wear from! And I think you even missed a look with the patchwork blouse.

  4. Time flies! I often find it funny how much my fashion sense changes. I often find outfit I felt perfect a little odd over the time, as if I could do better
