Trying to wear what I have in my wardrobe

I have a bad habit....

I buy clothes, wear them and then forget them, it's a bad habit which needs to stop, for two main reasons. 1) I can't afford it. and 2) I am running out of places to put said clothes.

Recently, well since the beginning of the new year, I have been on a bit of a weird buzz, where I have been sorting and tidying my belongings, to you this may not be weird but for someone as messy and hoards as much as I do, its a pretty big deal. I have donated things to charity, that I wonder whatever possessed me to buy, but I have also found things that I once loved, and want to love again.

This top, has actually not been worn successfully on many occasions, what the hell do you mean you may ask, well on at least three occasions I have got something down the front, and I've had to change before leaving the house. One day I had a hair appointment and didn't wear a coat and between the car park and the salon the heavens opened, I looked like a contestant in a wet t-shirt competition when I walked through the day and ended up getting my hair done, topless under a gown while my top dried on the radiator. So when I say It's not been worn successfully many times, you can see what I mean.

The camo jacket has a less traumatic story, I just forgot about it, but not anymore, Its resurfaced and I am quite digging it. I love wearing outfits that shouldn't really work, a frilly blouse, kitten heeled boots and a camo jacket shouldn't really go, but I like it, I love tweaking the rules a bit.

Camo jacket - Topshop(similar)
Top - Newlook (old)
Boots - Dorothy Perkins(similar)
I'm working on, being a better shopper and not buying things I don't need, and I'm really going to try and wear what I already own.

I'm not making any promises but I am going to try, Promise!!
