Unfortunately, I didn’t get much sewing done lately due to back problems. That’s why I’m showing you my well-known knit dress today, which I have already presented 3 times here (previous outfits below). By itself this dress is actually quite boring. But due to its simple shape it is the perfect basis for many outfit combinations. Anyway, I have noticed that the simplest pieces in my wardrobe get worn the most in the end. Thus, I will try to sew more basics in the future, even though it is a lot less fun. For new outfit inspiration I like to check out fashion blogs. Today’s outfit is inspired by this outfit from “With love from Kat”. When searching for new outfit ideas, I always try to stick to outfits that contain mainly pieces that I already have in my closet. After all I want to make the most of what I already have and not continuously buy something new 😉 To adapt this outfit to our current fall weather, I have exchanged the pumps by booties and added stockings. Additionally, I punched more holes into an old belt so that I can cinch it in the waist. Which are your go-to pieces from your closet? Where do you find outfit inspiration?
