The copy

I was trying to think of a way to style this little red skirt I made which I hadn't done before, and thought I would be clever and see how Shea has been wearing hers - which is the actual skirt from J.Crew that I was copying when I made mine.

When I saw her knotted gingham top, I thought, perfect - it's just what I'll wear. It wasn't until later when I remembered I'd already done this combo last fall.
Oh well. I have a hat this time. It's not like I have some rule against repeating anyway.

  4. Hey, thanks for the shout out lady! It's funny how if we didn't have blogs, we would (most likely) never remember what we wore a season or two ago. Sometimes I forget even within the month, so I find myself searching the blog to see if I've already worn something, haha! But I think your accessories change this up enough, it's not a complete repeat of last fall. (But even if it were, that would be totally okay--it's a cute look, if I do say so myself!)

  13. Wait a minute--you MADE this skirt??? Too cute! Well done! As you might remember I am a huge gingham fan, so naturally I love your outfit. And the hat does make a difference anyway, says I. Great look Lydia!

  14. repeats are sometimes necessary especially when they are this cute

  15. You added a hat, so it's totally different. Totally! ;) And I wouldn't have even remembered this outfit, so no worries. You look so fresh n' fierce gurl. Plus you've got that awesome animal head bracelet to work with it now~ yeep yeep.

    This makes me want to recreate some of your outfits with my clothes. Should be fun enough!

  16. So pretty! The hat really does make the outfit, so I don't think it qualifies as a repeat. ;)
    And I'm super-impressed that you made the skirt! Wow!

  17. I think we real girls with limited budgets are happy to see repeat outfits on our fave style bloggers. And I'm pretty sure most of us don't remember the first time 'round either :)

  18. Lyddie you look so beautiful in the first picture, well in all but the first picture is my favorite.

  19. Very cute :) I actually made a similar skirt a little bigger for my pregnancy that I've had difficulty styling. It's just a weird fit so I might just scrap it... but your copy of Shea's gave me an idea!

  20. If you look this fab, why not repeat as many times as you want? Love it!

  33. You know, before blogging i didn't care if I repeated an outfit. Now I try so hard to not do so, even if I'm not doing outfit photos.

    I'd be cool repeating an outfit as cute as yours, though.

    ReplyDelete
  34. When an outfit works why fix it. I love both looks, with and with out the hat. But if I had to choose this would be my favorite.
