why i buy multiples in different colors

0 Permalink 4

 

there was a time when i was super opposed to buying multiples of anything. i figured variety was the spice of life and who wants the same t-shirt in five colors? it seemed so boring and uninspired.

then i got older and my body changed and along with it, my personal style. through trial and error i found that not everything was flattering on my body, especially right off the rack (shout out to my tailor!). so when i happened upon a garment that fit (fairly close to) flawlessly, i snatched it up immediately and in every color available. you see, i learned that if something fits you well, it’s worth the investment to snag it in a variety of colors if only for the fact that it will make creating outfits in the future a breeze. when i know a specific garment is going to make me feel confident and good about myself, it makes getting dressed for the day a seamless task.

which brings me to these wide leg-cropped pants from everlane. these are my FOURTH pair of them and i’m just as smitten with them now as i were the day i received my first pair (remember this photo shoot?). i’ve dressed them up and down and worn them a zillion different ways. they are what i like to call a “closet hero” -one of those garments that saves you in those moments when you stare blankly at your wardrobe lamenting “i have NOTHING to wear!”

as you know, i’m digging mustard this season so it was only a matter of time before i made the ochre color of everlane’s wide-leg crops mine. in all honesty, they have been back ordered in my size since DECEMBER so this purchase has been a long time coming. but they were worth the wait and i look forward to styling them all summer long. i will say, they’re definitely more brown than they appear in the photos on the website, but i still love them just the same!

i restyled my favorite eyelet top (zara has a TON of similar options right now, like this, this, and this) for a date night out to pizza on saturday night. thankfully no white shirts were stained in the eating of my cheeseless gluten-free (fun free?) pie. after seeing a few of my fellow bloggers sport hair scarves lately, i decided to accessorize with a black and white polka dot bandana as well as some black leather mules (they’re like buttah!). once again, i sported my gold tassel earrings from natalie borton, the perfect compliment to the goldish hue of the pants.
