Take Two

I wanted to try a little experiment with you guys this week and show you one piece styled two different ways in back-to-back posts. So that means you get to see my polka dot sweater again today. And I swear it’s not just an excuse for me to talk about polka dots again-really. 😉

Styling one piece multiple ways can sometimes seem daunting-but it doesn’t have to be that way. To come up with the look in today’s post, I only changed out three items from yesterday’s outfit resulting in a totally revamped look. By trading my gingham shirt for a gray tank, adding my favorite army surplus jacket, and changing my shoes from a patent to a cognac suede wedge, my little polka dot sweater went from dressed up and sweet, to laid back and casual. Easy as one, two, three!

There are really a lot of different outfits I could make with this sweater.  In fact, I am already plotting when I can wear it tucked into a mustard skirt with tights and boots (and maybe even a skinny leopard belt for good measure).  I would also love to pair it back to colorful skinny jeans-I’m thinking maybe pink.  But regardless, it’s always a fun challenge to look around your closet and create new outfits with pieces you already own.  You don’t always have to buy something new to make yourself look and feel like new!
