Do you ever feel like you're running out of outfits to wear and feel the need to replenish your closet, even though you have a closet full of clothes? Well that's exactly how I feel sometimes. If you're like me and regularly fight urges to buy things you don't need, stare at your closet until something jumps out at grabs you. Okay I'm kidding (kind of haha). But seriously take a good look in your closet and all the other places where you store your clothes that you don't wear often (drawers, basement storage bags and bins, attic) and get creative with ways to make your old items seem like new again.

I'm loving knit and sweater dresses right now because they are cute and warm enough to wear in this fall weather. So how did I come across this dress? I bought it about 4 years ago and wore it several times throughout college. Then I forgot about it for over a year. However, like I said earlier, sometimes I feel like I have nothing to wear. So earlier this month I took my own advice and visited my closet archives (the places where I keep the clothes I haven't worn in months to years and were forgotten) because I remembered this dress and something told me it would serve me well this season. I spent about 15 minutes going through some storage bins and bags I never unpacked after I graduated from college last year (don't judge me) and I found it! I wanted to make the dark colors of the dress look vibrant so I wore it with my favorite yellow jacket (worn previously here and here), this choker I can't get enough of and my comfortable ankle boots for a day of running around town. I actually wore this outfit twice this month before I photographed it because I love it so much and have no shame in repeating outfits!

You probably own lots of cute clothes. So before you spend money you don't need, spend some time in your closet and closet archives. Or shoot me an email and I'll help you find the cute in your closet. If you don't own any knit or sweater dresses and want one, Old Navy, Asos, and H&M have some cute ones.
