Yesterday I finally felt well enough to leave the apartment,* so we took a little walk up Calton Hill to see the view and enjoy the sunshine. You can see the Scottish Royal Palace behind me in these photos, and behind that, Arthur's Seat, the much bigger volcanic hill we wound up climbing today. What you cannot see in these photos is how crazy-bad my eyes were watering from the wind, or how many used condoms were on the ground freakin' everywhere. (I love you Scotland, but please, keep it indoors!) Yes, the lengths to which I will go for the outfit shots knows no bounds.
I'll admit to having some qualms about posting this outfit on the blog at all, as it's remarkably similar to this one (albeit comparatively under-accessorized). I used to be a serious outfit-repeater. I would come up with a combination that I liked, and I'd go back to it frequently, often wearing the exact same thing multiple times in a month. A big part of why I started blogging my outfits was to force myself to be a little more creative with my closet, to try and mix things up a little and see if I couldn't come up with some more interesting results. I feel like I've more or less been making good progress on that front, but a major side-effect has been a total phobia of repetition. I never meant to make a rule for myself that I couldn't wear an outfit more than once, only that I'd like to not do it all the time, and yet since I've been blogging my outfits, I have avoided it assiduously.
What do you guys think - is it a cardinal blogger crime to wear the same thing twice?
*Or, more likely, got sick enough of being sick to throw caution to the wind.
