I first discovered Free People in high school. Since then it has been one of the brands that I would constantly turn to for style inspiration and shopping. The brand’s clothing tends to fit looser than other brands, taking away from the constant frustration I faced when shopping in high school.

In the past year or so, I have started to move away from Free People and on to different brands and a new style all together. However, most of my closet is still composed of a lot of Free People. I have recently felt challenged to find new ways to wear clothing I have had for a while. This specific outfit is a result of that. I have found that one of the easiest ways to breathe new life into a piece is through layering. By using two or more old pieces and combining them into a new layered look I have been able to bring excitement to clothing that was starting to bore me.
