Everyday I'm overwhelmed by the choice in my wardrobe when I pick out my outfit for work. I just have too much stuff and I end up wearing the same outfit over and over because I can't be bothered to try and think of a new combo. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only girl who feels this way!
So I decided to narrow my choices down by choosing one basic to work my outfits around for the week. For example: stripes, polka dots, trio of colours (e.g. red/black/white, navy/white/red etc), pastels, floral prints etc.
I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to clothes and rarely throw anything out until it's all worn out so some of the items in my outfits are quite old so I most likely won't remember where I bought certain items from and their respective price but I'll try. Items that can still be purchased I will list and share the links.
This week I'm starting off with the theme of: Stripes
The colour palette will be black, white and red.
These are the four stripey items I pulled out: (I know the skirt is gingham but I ran out of stripes!)
This outfit is great for summer and in the winter just layer with a cardigan to keep warm.
Vest: Easy to find anywhere
Peter Pan Collar: New Look - £4.99 - A statement necklace would also work with this outfit.
Black Skater Skirt: Miss Selfridge - £14 - total bargain as this skirt is so versatile and can be styled with anything from casual to formal
Red Skinny Belt - Red works really well with monochrome style
Long Sleeved Striped Top
Top: Primark - ~£4
Dress: Dorothy Perkins

Belt: New Look - £6
Shirt: Criminal Damage
Black Skater Skirt: Miss Selfridge - £14 - same as above

Shoes wise: you decide! I wore my black boots because it's still pretty cold out or my thick black tights and black court shoes.
How do you decide what to wear each day?
