My De Beauvoir Diaries - Why it's OK to repeat an outfitAs I’ve got older I’ve realised that It’s OK to repeat wear an outfit. If you find the perfect look, it’s silly not to want to wear it several times, right?! I know this now; but throughout my early twenties I did feel a little bit of pressure, when hanging out with the same crowd, to be dressed in a new trendy outfit each weekend. Probably more pressure from myself than anybody else I would say. I love clothes and always want to stay ahead in the fashion game.

I am in my early thirties now (eeeek!) and things couldn’t be more different. I love to find outfits or single items that can be mixed and matched and worn on repeat! A variety of investment pieces and high street gems like this fabulous embellished top from ASOS (link below). It would be a total shame to only wear this bad boy once. No way!

Don’t even get me started on these boots or bag… I have worn them 100 times already and will never tire of them. One of the best feelings in the world is getting dressed, feeling awesome and knowing that your outfit is “bad ass” hahaha!

Be proud of those clothes that you have worked hard to buy, love them as much as the first time you saw them and keep your head high when you wear them again and again and again…

  • I couldn’t agree more. When I was younger I definitely conformed to that pressure and nonsense. These days I detest when people do such things. I think if you love something then wear it more than once. Especially if you invest in quality pieces. What’s the point otherwise!?


    • Oh I totally agree Sonia, you are right! Glad i’m not alone on this one. Lots of love, Hayley xxx

    What a beautiful outfit post, lovely photography! I do enjoy this outfit & I definitely think repeating outfits is okay. I’m the queen of repeating outfits because I don’t have that many clothes. Too much makeup, but not much clothing if I’m honest! xx adaatude.com

    • Ahhh thanks so much lovely, that means a lot. I say go for it and repeat those outfits! Why the hell not 🙂 xxxx

  • I definitely agree with you! Repeating an outfit is perfectly ok, because if it made you feel amazing once why wouldn’t you wear the same clothes again to get that feeling? And I don’t wonder why you’ve worn this outfit before, it looks gorgeous! xx

    • Most definitely! Clothes are meant to be worn until they fall apart… I think so anyway. I’m totally getting my monies worth, hehe!

      Thanks so stopping by lovely xxx

  • I LOVE your hair! So gorgeous! Wish I knew how to do that 🙂

    Oh! And I totally agree, repeating an outfit is definitely ok.
