For ages, I followed this thing I dubbed 'the two-week rule.' It meant that no outfit in my closet could be worn twice within two weeks; its purpose to ensure that nobody ever remembered me wearing the same lewk. Upon stumbling across this Man Repeller article last year, I was inspired to change my stubborn ways. Over the past year, I've dared to rewear with reckless abandon. And let me tell ya, it's been great.
Every year in this strange transition between my winter and spring wardrobes I get stuck in a style rut. Every morning I throw open my curtains to see the sun shining and race to my closet in hopes of creating the perfect spring outfit. Ten minutes later and a trail of clothes is scattered from my closet to my mirror, like victims of the war between 50-degree weather and me. Out of ideas and in desperate need of morning coffee, I don the same oversized band-tee and boyfriend denim outfit of defeat.
To break out of my annual style rut, I thought I'd follow the guidance of my internet style gurus at Man Repeller and see if I could wear the same look for a week straight. I set out to spark some inspiration to my lackluster transitional style and get to know my closet a bit better before the warm weather really hits. The culprit: the greatest $20 purchase I've possibly ever made, this striped Everlane tee. It's lightweight and uber soft but still looks polished thanks to its mini stripes. The sleeves are a flattering cut and length is sublime. I could rave all day about Everlane's tees, but I digress — let's get started, shall we?
