February Revisited

Friday, February 13, 2015

(Let's just gloss over the fact that I should've posted this at the beginning of February 'k? Cool.)

I often look back over blog posts and see what I was doing a year ago, two years ago... February always seems to be a month when I try to be frugal. Frugal March doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it? Being frugal while trying to plan a wedding is laughable. Necessary spending is allowed but at what point do 72 tealight holders become a necessity? I'd hazard a guess at never...

Still, I like to revisit experiments on this here blog and I see no reason why February this year shouldn't be frugal too (wedding aside).

In Feb 2012 I styled up my most recent purchases in three different ways and I really enjoyed it - see part 1 / 2 / 3 / 4.  So as well as cutting out any unnecessary spending this month, I'll also be revisiting this little wardrobe challenge.

February 2012

Four of the 10 items I styled back then remain in my wardrobe - (above l - r) the Zara jeans, the Dorothy Perkins boots, the pink Custard Designs bag and the Very riding boots. I don't wear / use any of these on a regular basis anymore so I think it'll be fun to style them up again. First off I'll try to recreate these outfits and then I'll find new ways to wear them.

Do you ever look back over old blog posts?  Do they inspire or make you cringe? Make you wish you still owed an item of clothing or make you dump something in a charity bag? I'd love to know.

    1. I really enjoy it, it makes me wear things differently instead of putting the same things together all time after time.

  2. I rarely look on old blog posts - I get embarrassed.

  3. Love this challenge. I might have a go at one myself to see if I can wear some of the clothes that I don't wear so often. Looking back over old posts gives me mixed feelings, sometimes inspired and sometimes cringe.I do sometime see pieces of clothing that I have since donated to charity and wish that I had kept them.

    1. You should definitely give it a go, I get more out of my wardrobe when I do.

  4. I love this idea, especially as I'm a creature of habit and I struggle to style things differently once I've worn them one way.

    I quite often read back over old posts - the very early days of my blog make me cringe in terms of the layout and photography (I did not have a clue) but, embarrassingly, I enjoy my own writing!

    1. I have plenty of cringey posts here too! I do enjoy looking back though.

  5. To be honest, looking back on my old blog posts makes me either cringe, or want to cry about the change in shape and size I seem to have gone through.
