Another outfit with this necklace...

Top: H&M (similar #1similar #2)  |  Skirt: Forever 21 (similar #1, similar #2)  |  Flats: Old Navy (similar #1similar #2)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments (shop)

When I start to notice that I'm reaching for the same items even though I have 900 million possibilities in my closet, I hone in on pieces I haven't worn in a while to be intentional with them.  I know there's tons of outfits to be made with pieces like this--I just need to pay attention to them.

This red pleated skirt is one of those items, last seen here.  I intended to pair this skirt with this top when I bought the skirt, but it seemed so easy that it felt like cheating.  So, since I'm obsessed with this necklace (I told you I've been wearing it a lot!), I gave it a shot and wound up loving how the color adds an interesting twist to the red skirt!  Seriously, an accessory can freshen up an outfit like whoa.

  4. Love the red and turquoise together Audrey! I have got to get some more skirts for my wardrobe. I have a few statement necklaces that I wear over and over again, I can't help it. The heart wants what the heart wants. :)

  5. I do the same thing with reaching for the same items - good for you in being intentional about using other ones... I better do this too, or else whittle my closet down to the approximately six items I've been re-wearing. I would totally wear this necklace with every outfit though - seems like it would work with EVERYTHING, and it's definitely a great twist with red!

  11. I love when I realize I get obsessed with a piece in my closet because, honestly, the pieces that work best in my life tend to be the ones I bought kind of impulsively while thrifting. That being said, you're right; you've worn this necklace a lot. (:

  12. I do the same thing--I get on a "kick" of wearing something all the time (for me right now, my chambray shirt) so I try to pair it with different things. I love that necklace, it adds a unique touch to the classic red and black combo you're working!

  14. That skirt is adorable! I have been lusting after a skirt like that for a while now...I may need to bite the bullet and purchase one. I do a similar thing as you - I wear certain articles of clothing in cycles.  If I find something I like, I try to find as many ways to wear it as possible.

  23. This is one thing I've learnt (and implemented) from reading your wardrobe series - never under-estimate the versatility of coloured bottoms! Your outfit looks smart.

  27. Hi Audrey -  Just found your blog after seeing a pin by MiniMe Style on Pinterest.  Absolutely love your amazing style and your many outfit ideas!  Totally inspires me to  stop shopping, and remix the stuff I already have.  Have a great day!

  28. Oh, that's so cool, Lori!  Thank you for stopping by, and good luck working the pieces in your closet!

  29. So I also LOVE that necklace. I bought it. And on my 5'2" 105 lb frame it looks absolutely comical. Oops. Since I bought it from an etsy seller there is no way to return it, but if anyone wants it, I would be happy to send it to you. No scam, no strings attached, I just dont want it to be wasted.
