Things That Live In My Closet

I've been remixing my wardrobe a lot over the past few months. Trying to stay stylish and on top of trends is difficult on a limited budget. There are days I curse at my closet and feel like giving up, but ultimately it's been a great learning experience. I have to appreciate the beautiful things that live in my closet and give them a chance. While I may long for a new wardrobe I have learned that style is not all about trends and designer labels but about your attitude and the way you wear your clothes.

1. YSL Cinema perfume with my "Taylor" necklace (seen here and here)
2. Pink pleated H&M skirt,
3. Dolce Vita booties (seen here and here)
4. Steven by Steve Madden leopard loafers
5. Watch collection (similar style here)
6. H&M polka dot dress
7. J. Crew sequin clutch with H&M jewelry
8. Vintage leopard jacket

Ooh I love those leopard loafers! I am also facing some budget-related challenges. It's a lot of work staying stylish and inspired with limited funds, but it is a really awesome feeling to breathe new life into old pieces. It gets hard wanting so many new things, but it also forces me to be creative. Here's to appreciating what we already have!

ohhhh that polka dot dress! I curse my closet all the time but I have a closet FULL of clothes and shoes.. and it's nice to re-discover and re-work pieces and things. I need to purge some items that I've been holding onto, however...

Hey Taylor,
The way you style your wardrobe doesnt make it seem that you are struggling. All outfits look unique and individual on its own. Inspires me to do the same :)

Those leopard loafers are insanely cute. Are they comfortable? Thinking about getting a pair.
And honestly, I think you are doing a fantastic job with what you already have in your closet. I love your outfits.

April said...

Well said, Taylor! Keep those creative looks coming...you always look beautiful!

btw...if you think remixing a wardrobe is challenging at times, try doing it pregnant ; )

Caitlin said...

So true and you've done a most excellent job of remixing and looking on trend & stylish!

Kate said...

Taaaaaylor, I am dying over here. Between the leopard loafers, the black dial MK watch, the pink midi skirt and the polkadot blouse, my heart is pitter pattering all over the place! MAJOR closet envy this week, m'dear. Great post!

The Fancy Teacup said...

It must be a struggle to not have "new" things added to the closet, but you look so beautiful in what your wear all the time regardless because the outfits are so "you." I adore the vintage leopard coat the beautiful sequined J. Crew clutch.

Love all of this!
and I agree, anyone can be stylish no matter what is in their closet, as long as they know how to make it work for themselves and feel comfortable :D

I would so love to have your closet! :)
I get so irritated with my closet at times too. I can be pretty lousy at remixing. I buy something and wear it a couple times, and then get tired of it and want to replace it with new clothes. It's a bad habit!

Courtney said...

You have a great eye for photography.

I know how you feel! I've been having daily tantrums regarding having "nothing to wear" despite my overflowing closet. Need to work on remixing more...

Are you kidding me it doesn't look like you have a problem at all looking great in your wardrobe. You have some amazing pieces and I look forward to seeing your outfits everyday. Style is not keeping up with fashion and treads but wearing what looks good on you regardless if its old or in style.

You have a fantastic watch collection... I love man style watches.

Taylor Sterling said...

Thanks everyone! I don't mean to sound spoiled. I know some of my things are current and lovely. But when you have a style blog and you never buy anything it can make you feel a little crazy at times!

Lori said...

I love your polka dot dress! I have been wanting one for awhile now, just haven't found the right one yet. I wish we had an H & M where I live, but I hear they might be opening up an E-commerce soon...has anyone heard anything?

Coveting your leopard loafers... so cute. Flats are my thing right now and I love discovering ones that are a little more interesting.

Dancing Branflake said...

I love the challenge of remixing- in theory. In practice I get so fed up because I'm just not good at it. But I do love how you remix things. Especially that polka dot shirt. Love that every time!

Ginta said...

How beautiful are the photos! And as the cherry on top is that leopard coat. It's amazing!
It sounds you've fallen in love with your closet in the best way possible. :)) I couldn't agree more about the attitude and the way you wear your clothes. Confidence and love for everything you wear is the key! I'd even say that when we're restricted in our expenses we are the most creative.

Priscilla Francine Makeup said...

I totally know what you mean Tay, I'm going to have the same issue soon with my makeup collection, I'm going to have to be on a budget ;) love ya!!

Alicia said...

You have the Steve Madden loafers I've been eyeing!!!

Margot said...

Ambyr said...

I love the J.Crew sequin clutch, it looks like the perfect piece to dress up a casual look.

I love that you have a watch collection ... one of my favorite things to buy are watches. I love how classic and "timeless" a watch can be. Also, that skirt is perfection. XOXO!

I totally understand the dilemma, wanting to stay chic and fashion forward without buying a new item every day... You have a gorgeous wardrobe so it shouldn't be too hard! I love the DV booties!

Samara said...

I follow you on Twitter, and I was disappointed to see you say that these flats are not nearly as comfortable as they look. They're SO cute, and I was totally already trying to justify purchasing them for myself! But I guess I should look on the bright side -- that's one item I can cross off of my ever-growing wish list.
