Today I will show you 4 remixes of clothes you have seen before, but the outfits are different. This is just to show you how a versatile wardrobe can help you mix & match and create various new looks.

First there is my old A-line skirt from Zara. It’s been in my closet for a while and I find it an easy casual skirt for errands. Very easy to combine with both neutral and brighter tops. Here it is combined with my favorite red Alldressedup top that I have showed you several times before on the site.

New are the ballerinas that I managed to buy in London. It was actually pretty hard to find good ballerinas even though they were everywhere. And even now I’m not even sure I bought the right ones. I love how they look but even though they fit perfectly in the store (I swear) they feel really tight now. I have this problem with a lot of shoes which is why I always dreaded buying new shoes. They feel fine in the shop, but at home they are too tight. The problem has gotten a lot less since I almost only buy sandal shoes now. We’ll see how we go. Perhaps I should have them stretched out!

Here is another look with the A-line skirt with on-trend colour taupe  (also from Alldressedup). Looks great too with the animal print belt and brown wedges and of course my Balenciaga bag.

All the below pieces have been featured before as well. Top and dress from Haji Lane, trousers from mango and Zara shoes.

And here is the Calvin Klein dress I wore on my recent birthday party. This time combined with a yellow belt and yellow shoes.
