Last week I was talking about cleansing my wardrobe which is almost a new year tradition. I made a visit to Ikea to purchase a new storage unit. It’s more of a display cabinet and I wanted to use it to have my favourite bags, shoes and books all in one place. Being able to see things makes me more likely to wear or use them often, as they say, out of sight, out of mind. I’m also more likely to be a bit more adventurous with my outfits if I have all my accessories in an easy to reach place. Rather than reaching for the same shoe and bag combination each time, I’m more inclined to switch it up.
My Balenciaga’s have had quite a few wears but I want to try and get more out of them. As they were in the box previously I often forgot about them when getting ready. Now that I have them in sight, I’ve been opting for them more frequently. Sometimes, like today I keep it casual, other times I contrast them with a more sophisticated outfit.
I got this chunky knit as a Christmas gift and it’s perfect for everyday wear. It’s a slightly crop and boxy fit and I love the ribbed detail. Ripped jeans are a wardrobe essential and this pair are one of my favourites. A chic bag finishes off the look.
