My Lesser Worn Wardrobe Items...

Wednesday, 27 January 2016

I'm always buying new clothes and accessories (but of course those of you who regularly read my blog already know that), and naturally I tend to wear some bits and bobs more than others. Upon recently looking through my wardrobe and it's surrounding storage, I found quite a few items that I'm sad to say I haven't used or worn to their full potential. So hopefully by creating a post like this, detailing a few of those forgotten items, I can keep a reminder to myself to use and wear them in the very near future!

I bought this cute little tie up top from Topshop back in the Autumn, and have unfortunately only worn it once (I know, tragic!) After seeing this style of shirt on Instagram feeds and blogs alike, I really thought I too would love wearing them myself...and don't get me wrong, i do, but I just felt at the time that I was getting way too cold in such a thin and open top. 

Therefore, once it's the spring I am going to make this top of my wardrobe priorities to wear, as I think once I get used to the style I will be able to style in in many ways and with many things.
I also got this denim jacket last year, and I have to say I just adore it-from Forever 21, it was incredibly affordable and also fits so well on me! However, last year I tended to wear a lot of jeans and in turn didn't want to wear this as well (a fear of double denim sent tingled down my spine at the sheer thought of committing such a crime.)

So, this spring and summer I am going to make the effort to pair this cute little thing with some different bits and bobs-dresses and skirts etc-so I can actually get my wear out of it.
This scarf must have cost me about £9 from the Asos Sale last year (it's from the Jack Wills section, and I just fell in love with it as soon as I saw a picture of it) but I feel like I haven't really worn it all that much. It's really soft, and from what I can remember it went well with all sorts of things, yet like so many things that I own it just ended up at the bottom of a drawer and I only recently rediscovered it.

I think it will look perfect this coming spring though when it's still that little bit chilly, as it's light but still keeps your neck warm. It will look seriously cute with just a jumper or long sleeved top as well....and now I just can't wait to find the oppurtunity to wear it!
Oh, my dear Cambridge Satchel, how I raved over you upon first purchase! And now I feel as though this beautiful thing is just simply sat in it's dust bag beside my wardrobe, and has only been used a couple of times...

I do have a reason for this however, I hurt my back not long after getting this gorgeous bag and struggled to wear it on my shoulder for quite a while after. Then, it got to winter and I again found it difficult to wear this atop all my layers of coats and jumpers and best galore. So, as we approach the spring I feel that I have no excuses when it comes to wearing this fine thing-thankfully it is a very versatile colour so it's sure to still look lovely with all my prettier, spring outfits as well as those darker ones that I wore in the autumn.

Just writing this post has really reignited my love for all of these items, and I now can't wait to get round to wearing and using them once again. Hopefully you can all relate to me with my forgetting of items etc, so I'm definitely going to reupdate you all later in the year once I have tried each and every one of them out again!

Thank you for reading,

  3. This is such a good idea for a blog post!! I have WAAAY too many clothes, and in result I wear the same things over and over, and forget about so many hidden gems, I would love to do a post like this to re-inspire myself to wear them, but I think the post would go on forever I have that many clothes. I really love everything in this post, if I owned these I'd definitely be wearing them constantly. I remember loving that bag when you featured it in your blog post, SOOO nice! xx

  6. It's such a fine line between not buying too much and not having enough different items so that you can mix things up a bit... I have a bag just like that except for the little heart on it; bought it from Top Shop last year. It goes with absolutely everything!
