Is there anything better than a basic black and white look with a denim jacket? I. think. not. Strangely enough, not a single item I’m wearing is brand new. I put this outfit together about two months into my fashion blogging journey, when I started to panic that I was running out of outfits. Instead of using it as an excuse to buy more stuff, I saw it as a challenge to get creative with the way I put together the things that I already owned. Because if there’s one thing my wardrobe doesn’t need, it’s a load of new clothes. And if there’s one thing the world doesn’t need, it’s more fast fashion being thrown away.

So, I got creative. I started looking at how to create different combinations from things I already owned. And I had fun with it too, I grabbed a glass of chardy, put some music on and spent some quality time with my clothes and the mirror. I normally wear this tee with jeans, and this skirt with a black cami or some other luxe black top, and (if I’m completely honest) I haven’t worn this denim jacket much recently, aside from as a last minute “just in case I’m cold” addition to a Friday night dress.

This little exercise has made me wonder what else I can create, if I just set my mind to it. Which, in my honest opinion, is a good thing. For my wallet, and for the planet.

Side note: a few peeps on Instagram wondered where I shot this. I joked about being in LA (I’m not), because that was definitely the vibe I was going for. In fact, I shot it in Circa Boulevard, Norwest (which is in north western Sydney.) Proof that constant location scouting and an inability to turn off one’s brain sometimes has unexpected side benefits.
