Digging in my closet day
cardigan - Kohl's, tee - H&M, skirt - Old Navy, belt - Banana Republic, boots - Franco Sarto, necklace - self-made
Hold your horses... two posts in two days? It's a miracle!
After my relative blahness over the last week, I felt that I should do a little digging in my closet. I unearthed this cardigan that I purchased a few years ago. It's a knock-off of a J.Crew cardigan, and I adored it when I bought it, but I don't think I've reached for it at all the past two winters. One of the problems is that it's about a size too big for me. I cinched it with this skinny belt, and I think the result is great. It defines my non-existent waist and gives the cardigan a better shape.
From the cardigan, I decided to get over my lackluster creativity by mixing it up. Literally! Pattern mixing is always something I've admired on other people and wanted to try myself. In the past, I've done subtle mixes. For example, I'd wear a floral print skirt with a thin striped tee, and a cardigan over to tone the whole thing down. This time, I wanted to go a little bolder.
I'm pretty happy with the end result, and amazingly, it only took a few minutes to put together this combination. But what do you think. Does this outfit work?
