You may recall my talking about items I commit to my closet working across several outfits/ looks. I thought it would be about time to share a couple of 'two ways to wear' posts, just to prove that I do actually honour this. I know there is a stigma of seeing someone wear the same thing more than once, but really, it's no big deal. Whether saving finances, your environmental consumer footprint or simply being a smart shopper, it is certainly okay to stretch your purchases and make optimum use of them. 

The first item in my two-ways-to-wear is this Sportsgirl spotted blouse. I rarely go into a mall but when I needed new work shirts for summer, I found a bunch of these blouses and despite them being full price (something I tend to snobbily avoid- the mark up is just annoying on Australian clothes, and often chain stores will put something on sale weeks after it is released) grabbed a few. I love the wrap design and loose fit of this blouse. It is perfect to keep cool in with plenty of room to move. I have a rather extensive collection of polka dots/ spots in my wardrobe, it is elegant, fun and not too over the top. I keep prints to a minimum, but this is one I do not tire of. Naturally my eye was quickly drawn to this blouse. 

Here I have paired it with black jeans and my fave new hat- both in neutrals and a pair of patent pump heels. The look is that little bit rock and roll without the OTT glamour and can go from day to night without feeling too overdone. To dress this look down I would untuck the blouse and swap the heels for a sandal- or in the heat swap the jeans for a denim short and only tuck in the front of the blouse.
Got a print that gets you every time? Let me know what it is below!
