TRENDS REVISITED



Can you believe I have had this top and pants for 15 years!!! And the cool thing is, I still love them both and they are now super on trend! The pants are a kind of culotte and they feel so great on. 
I adore off the shoulder but ya know what I worry about: Will people think I am naked when I am driving? Ha!!! Give em' something to think about and gawk at.

I love to keep things in the closet or in storage, just in case!! I do get rid of a lot but my favorites stick around. Part of that is I am a full believer in taking very good care of items we work so hard for. My whole family is this way. For me, if I wear something and did not get it dirty or sweat in it, I hang in back up thus preserving it's wear! Plus, everything pretty much comes back in style in on way or another.

What about you? Do you tend to hang onto certain clothes or 
purge everything every couple years?




Have a wonderful Wednesday Beauties!!

  8. I have a pair of pants just like those that I LOVE - wore them yesterday.

    I remember wearing shirts like that when I was young... & having 'friends' run & pull them down ... so now I have a total fear of wearing them.

  15. This is such a lovely look - I am loving all this colour, it's perfect for this time of year as we all seem to gravitate towards colour, pop colour and even block-colour!

    Love! :)

  16. I cannot believe you have had these for so long. they are totally back on trend now! I love that. I am bad about getting rid of things when I should probably keep them because everything seems to come back.

  18. Hold on, you still fit in the same clothes that you have 15 years ago?! Gurlll, you need to share your secret! LOL! Culottes is the one trend that I refuse to jump on, I look horrid in it and makes my legs look like stumps. LOL!

  25. Trends are always coming back around, like I say on my blog, every festival season, the boho look seems to be the thing!

    I think it's great you've had these clothes for so long, if I had the space I reckon I'd keep more, but as things go, I do try and have a sort out every year and bin/donate anything I've not worn for 12-months. They tend to be fashionable pieces which I loved at the time, but as the seasons pass, they're no longer my thing or bits and pieces which have seen better days.

    I still have a red V-neck sweater which I've had since my uni years (2005!) and I still love, albeit it's looking a little worse for wear now!

  27. Some trends are worth revisiting. I own a few off the shoulder bright, patterned tops like yours and very similar black gaucho capris which are all the rage right now. Looking fabulous Andrea. =))

    Have a fab weekend! Ada. =)

  29. you look lovely!!! Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. I don;t have to many things that old. But I often wish I would have kept some of my clothes from the 60-70 time frame. xo

  30. I think what goes around comes around!! Love this bright blue top on you, a great color on you, and I am a fan of the off the shoulder look.

  31. That top is ridiculously cute and you are ridiculously not 40 something! You look fantastic! Must be because you have all boys. Girls will give you more gray hairs then you already own at 40 something. I know this because I too am part of the 40 something club and since my girls were born my gray has doubled. lol
