For the last two weeks we’ve been doing a special Sisters Share It All, where we’re talking about Wardrobe Staples. This is our last week, and we’re each sharing ten outfits that we created from our top ten pieces in our closet.
My dad used to wear denim on denim all the time and I thought it was so horrible. Sorry, Dad. You were apparently way ahead of your time, cause I love the double denim look these days. Especially with a little pop of leopard (which he did not do, as I’m sure you assumed).
This outfit was loosely inspired by one of jcrew’s Looks We Love (here). Mixing bold stripes seems scary, but they say as long as there is one color in common, you’re good. I went with that and kind of like how it turned out!
Chambray is perfect for layering (that’s why I got a light-weight one), so this outfit was a given. Although I sometimes get worried about too much going on at my neckline, this mint statement necklace ended up being a perfect addition to the outfit.
cardigan: target (shop) // dress: downeast basics (similar) // boots: macy’s (shop) // leg warmers: refashioned by me (made from the sleeves of an old sweater) // belt: thrifted // necklace: c/o sebastian design (shop)
Oh, I love this outfit. That gray cardigan is so comfy and dresses down the LBD so the look is casual and comfy. I added some leg warmers under my boots for a little pop of pattern, and threw on a belt to give the outfit a little structure.
