Knock on Wood

I love shopping my closet, and re-discovering pieces that I forgot I had. I recently fell back in love with this top that I scooped up at F21 a while back (I was wearing it on our honeymoon over 7 years ago if that helps show how old it is), and am having fun breathing new life into it. The wooden detailing on the neckline is my favorite part, and will be a timeless piece in my closet for years to come.

  8. I had a piece that is super similar to this in my closet that I just phased out. The straps were starting to fall apart. Love the wood detailing.

  9. I have SO MANY THINGS I don't wear. It's absurd. I do like finding them after a while though.

  14. I love that top, too! And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who has stuff in my closet that's that old! I actually have a skirt that I still wear occasionally that has been in my closet since I was 19. Is that not crazy?!

  15. So cute, and I love the wood detailing too! I finally cleaned out my closet a couple of weeks ago and I love that I was able to find some old pieces that I used to wear all the time but haven't in a while! It's always fun to find those little gems!

  23. Lol @ Missy's comment about F21! So true though! I still have about 30-ish tops from college days in my closet that are all in great condition and I'm sure most are from F21. Love this cute and casual weekend look and of course the studded heels spice it up! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  24. This is why I love shopping my own closet. You'd be surprised at what you can find. It's amazing that it has lasted that while and you're still able to rock it!

  25. I swear I had this same top in black! I love shopping my old things. I pack them up and store them if I haven't worn them but I'm not ready to get rid of them. When I dig in a few years later, it's like shopping brand new all over again!

  35. I love finding things in my closet. This is too funny because I have a dress with the same top and I can't bring myself to get rid of it. It's a little short for me now but maybe with leggings lol Beautifully Candid

  39. I have a top similar to this from years ago. This is why I could never be a minimalist because I know I will always recreate looks with all of my older clothes. You look amazing!!
