Recycling Trends

I am on a budget. And as we all know, budgets suck.

Accordingly, I am trying to steer clear of every mall within a 50 mile radius of my face. My good intentions are not working out considering the fact that my new office overlooks a mall. I'm not kidding. A MALL!

Similar to the way that the sun shines through Indiana Jone's medallion to point him in the direction of the Well of Souls in the Raiders of the Lost Ark... the sun hits the windows of Crate and Barrel every afternoon and reflects directly into my office and I am forced to turn away from the temptation. 

So, I am trying to recycle last year's trends into this year's hot new thing. Lucky for me, I am seeing tons of last year's trends take up space on this year's catwalks. Hooray! Here are some of my favorite trends from last year that are definitely coming back for seconds.


  1. I think the trick is to buy the clothes you love rather than trendy. This way you will easily avoid temptations. :)

  2. Great idea to recycle! I feel like these trends never left anyway! I need to follow your clue and stay away from shopping via mall and online.

  3. My office overlooks a mall too! SO DIFFICULT! I always convince myself that I need to go over there for "lunch" and just browse... you know, maybe grab a pair of $2 earrings from F21... HA.

    Loving those leather shorts... the lase is ridiculously cute.

  4. Ahhh the temptation. When I was younger and worked in the mall it was the worst! Those sunnies and lace shorts are adorable.

  5. You are seriously hilarious. Budgets do suck MAJOR. I love the round up of recycled trends. You should try Poshmark, too!


  6. I love maxi skirts!!!!!!!!! Don't forget to link up today for my Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday link up.


  7. Oh girl, I'm on a budget too - and budgets are THE worst! Luckilly, key pieces always seem to come back - so hopefully I'm in a good place for fall/spring! xx

  8. I know all about temptation AND budgets...*whomp whomp* Oh well, the good news is you know how to work your closet and rock the stuff you've already got. Love those shorts, by the way.
