Repetition Compulsion

Repetition Compulsion

Repetition Compulsion

Works Cited
denim shirt: gap
sweater: hand-me-down from friend (xo, syd)
necklace: i made it
jeans: j crew outlet
boots: ll bean, of course

It's really ridiculously insert-explitive-here cold today. It was -11 when I got up this morning, so I reached for the thickest sweater in my closet and went from there. I've noticed lately that I'm drawn to wear the same set of pieces a bunch at once (these jeans I wore a week ago, this necklace on Tuesday, the boots and shirt yesterday, and the sweater every moment not on the blog). It's like I have a very slim short-term memory for what's in my closet--I only remember the things I've worn in the past week. Oh well!
P.S. I swear I'll go for more color soon. It's like I'm trying to match my backyard these days :)

Tania I was thinking the same thing yesterday! I swear I have short term closet memory and I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. Even this morning I thought, is time for my gingham shirt yet? Ha.

Fun winter look. And -11 degrees! I'd seriously die.

Justine said...

I tend to grab the same stuff too. It's weird how our minds work. Time to reorganize the closet....

You look so pretty! I love your sweater :)

Kristen said...

-11? You score points with me just for getting out of bed when it's that cold!

And I have the same problem - I can't remember what I wore three days ago, let alone three weeks ago. Thank goodness for my blog! :p

But I do love that sweater. So thick & cozy! Perfect for -11 days, I suppose.

Love the painted nails! I heard on the news that the same "Al Nina" weather patterns that is causing heavy snow for you is the same reason we're getting floods in Australia. You guys are lucky to be getting frozen water. People in Australia (queensland to be exact) are getting water in the liquid form and it's been going on for days with 16 people dead thus far and 56 still missing. Don't complain about he cold, guys. People are dying in Sri Lanka, Brazil and Australia :(

You get the most brilliant hand me downs! Love that sweater :)

Often I get into one or two pieces and for a few weeks I mix and match them with everything and anything in my wardrobe. A bit like newly found music which I also compulsively loop through my headphones until I have finally had enough :D

Emily said...

that sweater looks super warm! i would be wearing it all of the time, too.

and i tend to gravitate toward the same pieces/mixes, too. :)

What an amazing sweater!

Kristin Wyly said...

oh man I love this outfit! And there is nothing wrong with having a few favorite items, I have to resist wearing the same shirt and cardigan every day because they are so cozy.

Suzanne said...
