 dress - topshop, cardi - h&m, shoes courtesy bertie

I have to admit - when I took these photos I had a bit of a case of deja vu - and I couldn't remember if I'd worn this outfit on the blog before! It turns out although I have worn this topshop dress a couple of times before, this exact combination of dress + cardigan + shoes is still new, phew!

I am totally guilty of wearing the same combination of clothes over and over - I love it when an outfit just works, no effort needed! I wore this out to my school reunion last weekend, and as you can tell from my bad memory it's a dress I wear a lot, because it's so easy. I do like that having a blog challenges me to come up with new ways to wear things though - I would definitely be one of those people who wears only 10% of their wardrobe without this blog. Racking my brains to come up with a new outfit to post each week definitley keeps things more interesting!

This dress is one of my all time favorites, it looks lovely with the cardigan and shoes! And I feel your pain about 'inventing' a new outfit because it just hurts my brain after one point.

I always wear the same combinations of clothes :) this dress is lovely though, such a cute print! xo

That dress is so cute! I love the little sail boats! And I'm having a case of serious shoe envy! I am one of those guilty of wearing the same things over and over - but seriously I have very little in my wardrobe so I think I've hit the limit on how much I can remix! I need to get my shopping on! ;) xo

I love this dress/outfit, anything with sailboats wins <3

Lemlina said...

I have this dress too and still wear it regularly - I love it. Unfortunately when the sun shone the other day I realised that it was pretty much my only summer dress.... time to go shopping I think! x

Maria said...

Love the dress Harriet, it goes lovely with the shoes x

Katy said...

This is a gorgeous outfit :)
Don't worry, I very often will wear the exact same outfit again and again, if it looks good and works, I'll wear it because it's easier and I cannot be bothered to think of entirely new outfits! x

Gemma Satire said...

You look lovely! I love outfits, particularly dresses that speak for themselves and you don't have to be TOO creative! Hopefully all your old school chums appreciated it. And love the shoes, they actually look like a comfy pair of heels. And they are lace like. Love lace.

I totally repeat outfits too! If it works, why not right!?
Love that boat print on the dress. So unique.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, I love this colour - it's called blush, isn't it? It so soft and goes with everything. And yes, definitely... when I find an outfit that works I wear it again, and again, and again... xoxo

My Hideaway said...

This outfit could not be cuter! I love the print on the dress and those shoes with the cutouts and ribbon laces are adorable. :)
And I'm totally guilty of wearing the same outfit over and over, mostly comfortable things, especially when I've got a lot going on and just can't worry too much about my outfit.

PinkBow said...

Love all of this. Cardi, dress & pretty shoes is one of my fav outfits too.

Kim said...

I love the dress/shoes combo - great choice. I agree that without my blog I wouldn't wear half my clothes. I would always opt for PJs given the chance!

Lil said...

I missed this dress when it was in the shops and am forever gutted about it. Those shoes are absolutely gorgeous too. x

I'm completely in love with this dress - the print has me swooning! <3 <3 <3

Nice look!

LapindeLune said...

Ah, i am similar, and have discovered so much more inspiration to wear clothes more creatively thanks to blogging and reading style blogs - not that you can tell haha! but it gets me out of my pyjamas most days (work from home, so...).
Love this as always. You have a timeless appeal, can't quite describe it, but it is a delight. x

Katie said...

I get far too comfortable in the same outfit so wear it numerous amounts of times throughout the week, I can't help myself! I like just getting up with the littest effort possible before running out the door.

The boat print is so sweet. The pastel pink cardigan looks perfect with it also.

Love this outfit, perfect for the English summer. Those shoes are gorgeous. I do like having go-to outfits that I know work without much thinking but if I've not done an outfit post for a while that usually makes me a bit more creative! x

Emsipop said...

The print is gorgeous! I love the cardi and shoes, I wouldn't have matched those with the dress but it works perfectly!

Sophie said...

I tend to wear the same clothing combos too - it's just such less efoort when you're fumbling around bleary eyed in the morning!

Wake up the Land said...

I have so many 'go to' outfits - they are so necessary for those panic moments! The shoes are so lovely and summery also x

xStroutx said...

The print on that dress is gorgeous and the shoes are lovely. I think everyone has their safe go-to pieces, but that's where the joy of mixing and matching comes in

claire said...
