I’ve gotten in the bad habit of wearing things once, then getting rid of them. To be fair, this is, in part, because I’ve been losing weight faster than I can wear some of my clothes, so by the time I go to wear them again, they’re too big. But I’m still trying to encourage myself to stop buying new and find ways to rework what I already have before it’s too late.

I wore these jeans in one of my first outfit of the day posts, and I almost waited too long to wear them again. Thankfully, this particular style of jeans from Old Navy are SUPER skinny, so while the waist is big and required a belt, the legs of the jeans still fit pretty nicely.

I wore this gold sweater on my birthday in December and I actually took outfit photos that night, but they were blurry because of crappy lighting, so I never posted them. But here are some pics of that night from Instagram:

I’m getting the habit of layering, and I really like the way these colors work together — though I’ve decided I don’t like cropped sweaters because they tend to fall at the widest part of my hips and make me look wider than I am, as evidenced in the photo below. You’re going to see more of this from me in the coming weeks, while it’s still chilly enough to get away with wearing a bunch of layers.

I can’t promise you’ll see all of these pieces again, but I’m going to be doing more restyling while I can.

      Thanks Alison! I’m at 52.5 lbs. lost right now, so as you can imagine, I had to purge a LOT in my closet that was too big. I’m so glad I caught these before it was too late :)

    Hey, weight loss is a very good reason for only wearing an outfit once! Bravo!

    That hold sweater is too cute. Love how you paired it with the colored jeans. Cuteness.

      Good point, Daenel! Thankfully, as I’m losing, I’ve been shopping a lot of sales and more affordable stores like F21 so I don’t lose too much money on things I won’t get to wear a lot :)

    The green and gold of your outfit work so great together! As your pants loosen you can take them to a tailor to get the waist taken in. They are too cute to give away!

      Thanks for the tip Shen. I considered that, and I’ve done some of my own tailoring on some pieces, but I’m a little wary to try it with skinny jeans. I’m also wondering if it would cost more to tailor the pants than the pants cost themselves :)

      Thanks Dhruvi! My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I added the sheer black top, but I needed another color to balance the outfit and so it wouldn’t look like Christmas in February…lol!
