Recycle Yo Shizz

Shirt & Flats: Gap, Dress worn as skirt: H&M, Purse: AWang, Necklace: Tatiana Diseño

 This outfit was the ultimate comfy chic ensemble for a recent outing with the hubs. The skirt is actually a maxi dress that I converted by just throwing this utility shirt (that I've had for a few years) over. My point...recycle, recycle, recycle! It's always good to do a little shopping in your own closet...sometimes I'm amazed at all of the shizz I have in there (signing up for the next season of hoarders...just jokes)

Happy Thursday!

I think you know how I feel about recycling a maxi. L to the O to the V to the EEEEEEE. I may have to go find a shirt like that just to knock this ensemble off.

merci!

Those flats are amazing, Gap has the best shoes!

And the dress, I love that print, especially paired with that color green and the little pop or orange!

The bag, the shoes, the skirt- I want it all! :) I really love this outfit and how you added a pop of color with the green top- so chic!
And I totally agree about the recycling thing. . . sometimes I'm shocked by how much I already have!
