Wardrobe rehab

The other week I rambled a little on an instagram post about my recent attitude towards shopping and material items. Moving homes has been a massive eye opener, only now have I realised the extent of items Gurps and I own.
I have so many clothes but yet more than often I still feel the need to buy something ‘new’ or ‘on trend’ its ridiculous.
I only have one body! Its not necessary for me to own 80 pairs of shoes and 35 pairs of jeans. (Figures are purely off the top of my head, I don’t think I actually own 35 pairs of jeans!) Its crazy, especially as my parents lived in a time where they had to rotate between two pairs of everything; I’m living a life of luxury in comparison.
As a result of this thought process, I haven't been shopping as much and Im really on a mission to define my wardrobe. I want to feel good wearing something I purchased 5 years ago. Just because the high street stores turn around new collections fortnightly I feel theres no need for me to buy into it.
So apologies if you see items that are not in the stores anymore, but I'm more then happy to find current alternatives for you to help achieve the looks.

Starting with one of my most beloved possessions in my closet, my zebra stripped coat. I purchased this a fair few years ago and I absolutely LOVE it. I know animal prints aren't to everyones taste and more then often they look tacky. But if you pair them with basics and don’t clash colours I think it can work for anyone, any shape, any size.
Teamed with a cute fluty skirt (which is short I know, but I'm 5’’1 so in my defence it doesn’t look like I'm showing too much, I hardly have any legs to show!) a slouchy top and nude heels.
Be sure to see these items pop up again soon, I love fashion and trends but they always churn out similar items every season, I suppose its all about being selective and clever about my shopping choices. Wardrobe rehab is underway!
