Clothes, on Repeat

 Something you should know about me. I am the queen of repeating clothes. I do it often. A lot. Year round, for years. I tend to go shopping every 5-6 months, grab about 5 shirts around $10 & then wear them like crazy for a few months, go shopping get a few new shirts & then wear those like crazy. 
Repeat the  cycle.
same shirt above & below. 
Oh, I also wear my clothes for years. I have had a blue jean jacket since my senior year of high school. I wear it often. I'm nearly 27 now. no joke, still rocking that cute jacket. Check out the jacket below.
See same dress here....
 & here.
 
The pictures could go on & on. I repeat clothes a lot & I usually wear them until my husband tells me, "you should go shopping baby" HA! Since having Noah I tend to want to shop more for him than myself. Plus, over the last few years I've been convicted about limiting the amount of excess in our lives & wearing the clothes I already have. 

Can you relate to this trend of repeating clothes & wearing them for years or is it just me?

Happy Monday

  3. I'm exactly the same! I wear the same clothes or repeat the same outfits. I'm getting a little better at mixing it up though - mostly because my of my genius idea to start doing outfit posts once a week - which has helped to slowly expand my wardrobe, though I still buy more for the kids than I do for myself.

    Thanks for following and linking up with the GFC Blog Hop! Following you back and looking forward to more great posts from you!

  5. I keep clothes for ages too and still wear them. Those things will have to fall off before I throw them away. I do like a bit of shopping though! I don't think every 5-6 months would work for me!

    Found you via the hop. Glad I did...will be sticking around to read some.

  11. Haha.. Very nice blog post, I'm also guilty of repeating outfits. Some people get pressured when they repeat outfits it's like they have to shop every month..

    1. Luckily, I haven't felt that pressure in years lol. I think when I was younger I did feel pressure to shop more, but not so much anymore.

  12. I think so many of us do this but don't always own up to it! While I may have many clothes I have my faves and repeat them to death. If it works - wear it!
