Over wearing Vs. Under wearing

maroon 038hhhh

I think most people can relate to having a piece of clothing that is completely over worn, something you know will work with anything for any occasion. I never really thought about it too much myself until my favourite pair of high waited denim shorts started to fall apart. First it was a few small holes, now the back pockets are slowly falling off and there is a hole in the crotch. They're so comfy though I don't think I'll throw them out until they literally fall off me.

Another thing I over wear is anything with a collar, I just realized this now after noticing I am wearing yet another blouse in this post!

The shorts!

Something I under wear is jewellery. I have a huge collection; my dressing table area is crammed with rings, necklaces, bracelets and hair accessories. I used to always layer lots of jewellery with everything I wore. I think working as a Christmas Temp at Claire's Accessories got me out of the habit as we picked stuff from the store to wear before every shift and put back after.

This is my skull ring which I LOVE but never really wear. It's actually a replacement for a plain gold one I lost on a night out. I prefer this sugar skull style though, so really it worked out for the best!

p.s it's a camera remote in my hand in all my photos incase you wondered!

  14. That ring is stunning, I'm really into my rings at the moment! A friend at uni is creating sculptures with skulls and they look just like the ring, interesting.

    I agree with the wearing of the items until they fall apart haha, I have some boots that I wear constantly, I had to get some new ones due to the old ones leaking through in the rain. Your shorts are so nice though paired with the blouse and cardigan!

  16. You can never wear enough blouses, they're definitely a wardrobe staple these days. I also overwear cardigans, like ridiculously so. I can't think of a better replacement though, so I'll continue to do so! And to agree with all the comments above, really lovely ring and outfit in general :)

  27. Those shorts look so good on you I can see why you like wearing them
    I'm definitely guilty of over/under wearing
    I want to get rid of all the under worn things, because chances are if I'm not wearing it, it means that I don't want to and I'd like to strike a balance
