How To Make The Most Of Your Wardrobe

How to make the most of your wardrobe

You don’t have to have an endless wardrobe (or bank account) to have plenty of outfit options… you just have to know how to make the most of your wardrobe.

I follow a simple process to make sure I’m maximizing every item I have and so that I know what items I should buy to give me even more options.

Summer time morning runs are my favourite. Now just because you’re going to get sweaty in these clothes doesn’t mean they should be any less stylish. I love to get a bit matchey with my workout clothes and have some fun with patterns and prints.

I actually do own these shoes, thats how this outfit came to life… now I think I need to go get the rest of this outfit. And just a quick FYI, most these items are currently on sale.

I also put together a few more of my favourite pieces that would make some good mix and match outfits.
