I find myself often having the feeling that I have “nothing to wear”. I know, it sounds super cliché, and I hear you think “that girl has so many amazing pieces, what is she talking about!”. You are right, I have so many great pieces in my wardrobe, yet I seem to forget about them. Hence, one of the upsides of our gipsy life is packing and unpacking of my wardrobe. This way I actually see what I have. Moreover, I like to sort my wardrobe per color, so all my jackets go from dark to light, and so do my skirt, tops, pants etc. I’m sure there are more out there having this slightly compulsive behavior.

Anyway, so I kind of dared myself to get out my “old favorites” and wear them again. Risk is – for example with these really old Isabel Marant trainers – that you are bored with them, as they were everywhere at some… I take that risk, because fact is that these trainers have been my favorite pair of shoes for a very very long time. Another fact, I believe they were my first very expensive pair of shoes. These days I might own more shoes, some even double or triple the price of these, but I still have a special feeling when I look at them.

So here’s a challenge: The coming weeks I’m going to reinvent my shoe-collection. Before I’m allowed to buy new shoes – as if I don’t have enough already, and shoes that were ordered last past week don’t count – I have to wear my old favorites. Starting with these from Isabel Marant, in combination with one of the most beautiful statement skirts I own. Weird color combination, I also know that, but what the hack, we only live ones!

  • I think the colour combo really works as the trainers pick out the burgundy stripe & the colour is also relevant for aw14! It’s great to discover old loved favourites & between I organise my wardrobes exactly the same way as you!!!

  • The Isabel Marant sneakers were the first pair of expensive shoes I ever bought too!! I don’t wear them anymore, but I would NEVER sell them, isn’t silly but they do sort of mean something to me (maybe just to start of a downward spiral into the world of designer shoes!!).Love this look, that skirt is incredible!

  • Leuk! Mijn aller eerste dure schoenen waren de Isabel Marant Betty’s en dat blijven ook mijn favoriete schoenen, ondanks dat ik ze bijna niet meer draag!

    I am in love with that skirt, you know it will never go out of style ! (and of course that Boy is amazing !)… I am not a fan of the sneakers, but maybe it’s because I find them a bit passé :) You look great though !

    For the past two years I’ve exposed my whole closet – I hung everything on racks and sorted them by color so that every single day I can see all my clothes. I have found that by doing this you get rid of old stuff easier and you are way more creative when planning a look! Downside is stuff can get dusty if it’s summer and you keep all the windows open all the time. =S http://www.thepaarblog.com/

    Actually love these ‘old’ favorites. Would love to see them more often, as I think we should all pay more attention to what we already own. Difficult for us fashion addicts. :-)
