Style My Closet January 2017 And Re-Creating A Classic Look

Coat: J.Crew Turtleneck: J.Crew Pants: J.Crew Factory Scarf: Primark (c/o, similar options linked below) Purse: Rebecca Minkoff Shoes: Tory Burch (prior season, similar here, here and here) Earrings: BaubleBar (also lusting after them in silver!) Sunglasses: Kate Spade Lips: Nars in Cruella

Oh January. The time of year where many of us give up things- like candy, wine, bread, insert your vice here- to start the new year off strong.  Last January I challenged myself to a 31 day no-shopping spree. I didn’t shop for the whole month and styled new looks with only what was in my closet. While it was definitely a painful 31 days for this online shopping addict, I survived and I guess I forgot how hard it was for me because I’m doing it again this January 🙂 . For the next month, I’ll be sharing my outfits from the week along with my tips for how to style your own closet. Hope you all will have fun following along with the challenge too!

One of the ways I get inspiration for new looks is from iconic and classic outfits. Chances are you probably have the classic pieces needed to recreate these looks in your very own closet. In today’s look, I’m putting my own twist on outfits worn by one of my favorite style icons, Audrey Hepburn. By combining Audrey’s camel coat look from the final scenes of Breakfast At Tiffany’s with her signature all black outfit, my look came together pretty easily.  I mean if we can’t be Audrey, at least we can dress like her… am I right, ladies?

Have you ever done a no-shopping challenge? Let me know if you have any tips for me!

xoxo, Jenna

      Thanks Biana! It is definitely a challenge, but it helps me remember all the things I actually own and get a bit more creative in my outfits too 🙂

    You look so classic and chic in this outfit. Love it! I’m doing the same challenge except I said I’d go without shopping until the end of March. What did I do to myself?!

    I’m doing this too! It’s proven to be very difficult but this homegirl needs to save some money! And lord knows, we have closets full of perfectly stylish clothes to get us through the month, if not longer. Good luck girl! Can’t wait to see what else you wear 🙂

      Thanks Kristy! Good Luck to you too! I am glad there are a few of us in this craziness together 😉

    I REALLLLYY should do this! I feel like I’ve cut back on shopping in general, but I want to only buy things I love (not just like) because then theoretically I will always have something to wear 😉

      I know I am so guilty of buying things I only sort of like too… Hopefully this helps break some of those habits! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Danielle!

    Love this idea! I did it last Fall and agree it was super difficult but also a fun challenge. Sooo can I come and raid your closet because I’m literally obsessed with everything you wear! 🙂

      Thanks Kristin! You can raid it any time 😉 It is hard, but good to do, right? Appreciate all your support, babe!

      Thanks Zarrin! Audrey is my favorite 🙂

    This is such a fabulous idea! I seriously should do this but I already broke it by buying a vest this morning ahhh. But does it count if I returned something else that was double the price?? Maybe I will restart in February! Also, amazing earrings!

      Thanks Evin! Me too- I love online shopping… probably a bit too much haha! This is a good way for me to reset at the beginning of the year 🙂

      Thanks Paulina! This coat is one of my faves 🙂

    I’ve been thinking/kind of doing a no shopping challenge myself. That’s awesome that you’ve kind of made it an annual challenge, some great things need repeating, right? I’ve gotten into the bad habit of buying more and saving less which I hate. This is a great way to go about saving and getting those creative juices flowing to form outfits from what we’ve got!

      Thanks Meaghan! Hopefully it makes me a bit more creative- and it’s always good just to assess what ya got! If you start doing it yourself, I’d love to follow along 🙂 xoxo!

    I have never done a no-shopping challenge…hahaha…I apparently don’t have the self-control!! But I do love reinventing the classics!! It honestly helps me justify splurging on the classics, hehehe. This look is SO TIMELESS and I adore it on you!!

      Tiffani, you are SO right! It absolutely makes the classic worth splurging on because you can wear them forever. I couldn’t agree more 🙂 Thanks for the love, babe!

    I like the idea of the 31 no shopping day challenge. I guess I’m on day 18 myself 🙂 Great classic look, every piece of this outfit is great and when paired together they look amazing.
