Outfit Repeating: Journey to building a more sustainable closet

So for a while now, I have been attempting to build a more sustainable lifestyle for me and my little family, It is something that is always in the back of my head, but I never actually get proactive in doing so.

Now that I am a mom, I thought being sustainable was just not the most convenient and “easiest” way for me to live life and figured it was something I would work on later in life when I actually had time. Thankfully, I came to the realization that being minimal, more sustainable, and practicing a “zero waste” lifestyle is a healthy and more natural way to raise my daughter.

My first step in being sustainable is by consuming less. A book I am reading stresses the rule of “refusing” things before getting something that is not needed. This is a big one for me because I am an avid shopper and waster of money. I like to get anything for everything which usually means I end up hoarding a lot of things I do not need.

This year instead of buying a whole new Fall/Winter wardrobe I have decided to instead re-wear my old clothes from last year. They’re all in excellent condition, I have a closet full of literally everything I could need for this weather, and it will have my creative juices flowing when I pick out my outfits. Thrifting is also a good way to use up garments for a full cycle, but I have not yet managed to master that skill yet (but excited to try it out!)

This outfit down to my leggings is passed over from last year. My oversized sweater is from Free People and my leggings are from Target. I believe the puffy vest is from Marshall’s but I’ve had it for three years now!
My brown aviator style sunglasses are from Target and I got them last year as well.
White converse are a staple piece that can be worn with ANYTHING! Which is why I love them. They are so versatile and I love the platform version because they add more flare to your outfit.

I love his outfit because it was comfortable to wear and did not feel like I was wearing athlesiure wear. It was also chic without it needing to be super dressed up and fancy!
