persistence (day 29)

this is a new twist on an old outfit. i thought about not including it in the 30 since i’ve worn it on the blog before, but it’s one of my favorite combos from the 11 pieces. and when an outfit works, it works!

the trickiest part was coming up with even the teensiest changes to make this outfit unique. i kept going back to the same shoes and the same accessories i’d worn before. i found this picture and wanted to create a similar look, but i tried every belt and pendant i own with this combo. aaaand not a one of them worked.

it wasn’t until i knotted this necklace and added my beige wedges that i felt like it was “right.”

lesson learned? don’t be afraid to rewear things. if you want a new feel, keep playing with accessories until you find a combination you like.

ps thank you for your input the other day! i’ve decided to go ahead with 5 more outfits to cap off my june challenge. before this month, i never would have guessed i could squeeze 35 outfits out of out of 11 pieces, but i want to finish them out. i think if i didn’t, i would feel like i left things undone. more thoughts on that later, though. have a great weekend, my dears!

    I love the knotted necklace! It really looks like completely different necklace.

      Thanks, Selah! I loved the way it turned out. Now if I can just get it unknotted. Ha :)
