Talk Tuesday


unnamedI have only been out of college for a few years, but I can most definitely reflect on the “please don’t take my picture, I may want to wear this again,” scenarios. That’s right … your photo-opt moments may have been shut down by you going to a lame party and wasting a good outfit. There was a rule, you could only wear a good outfit once. Not your typical day-time clothes, but the awesome, I want everyone to see me in this number. Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 10.51.16 PM

Now days life is a bit easier; I don’t feel like I have to impress anyone. When I dress, I dress for me. Sure I still have fun clothes that I like people to see me in, but I could care less how many times you see me in it or if you feel like I’ve over worn it. I don’t understand the pettiness of wasting great clothes, especially if they are incredibly cute. Then why only wear them once? It’s your outfit, your penny, you like it, rock it, over, and over, and over again. Believe me, there’s a lot of things you’ll see me re-wearing and re-inventing here on Circa 88.

This reminds me of Jay Z a few summers ago… He and Beyonce (pre Blue Ivy) spent their entire summer traveling. Almost every time I saw him in the tabloids he was wearing this blue collared shirt. At the time it was more than likely his favorite shirt, or the most convenient one he packed. It stuck with me that he didn’t care if anyone saw him wearing the same clothes… he knew was fly, and that’s all that mattered. Remember no one justifies you, but you.

What’s your take on the Repeat Outfit Syndrome? Is that something we do for status or maybe something that changes with age and wisdom? Do you live by the Repeat Outfit Syndrome or are you like me and wear what you want, when you want, and however many times you want? Chime in on the discussion: Comment, Subscribe and Share!

    I’ll wear the same comfy tshirt all week and not care. Lol. It has to do with age, because as soon as I got older I could careless about how many times someone has seen me in something! 🙂 love you trieny!

    I have some outfits that are faves because they’re comfy, don’t require ironing, or just look fabulous on me! So, with these outfits, I usually don’t care how many times I wear them or who sees them! I will occasionally change them up or mix and match pieces, but I definitely think that the idea of not caring comes with age! Great post, though!

      I agree! It’s best to not care cause at the end of the day you’re still rocking a fabulous piece! Xo

    *Raises hand* I have been guilty of the repeat outfit syndrome, but since I’ve gotten older I could care less. Like you said, if I like it I’ll flaunt it…even if I just posted it to IG last week. Great post as always! XoXo -Myra

      Yes! That’s what it all boils down to, not caring! xo

    The older I get the stronger my “I don’t give a fuck attitude” becomes. It’s your life and you have to live it for you. I have a couple of favorite seasonal pieces I look forward to rocking every chance I get once that season comes around. So cudos to you for writing this post!
