So I ordered this gorgeous sparkly green sweater from J.Crew, thinking it could be a cool option for some holiday parties. And it was. But now that it’s January, how do you take your holiday clothes and wear them with “normal” outfits for the rest of the year? I almost just folded up this beauty and shoved it in the back of the closet, where it would sit until next December. But then one night, as is typical for me at least five times per week, my sleep was interrupted by a fashion nightmare. “No, this sweater will NOT defeat me! I will make it cool for everyday outfits! There have got to be several ways to style it… I will conquer this sweater!!!”
So, here is part 1 of 3 different looks with this seemingly non-versatile sweater. This one could be called the ‘polished casual’ version. Something I could wear to work, or out shopping. I decided to actually put more jewelry over it, to layer the beading at the neckline. And I dig it. Gonna do it more often, in fact. And these loafers? O.M.G. They are soooo comfortable, so if you’ve been eyeing them on other bloggers, you should go for it!
*** And they are both 40% off right now at J.Crew.com with code TAKENOTE!!! ***
Next post will be the ‘edgy casual’ version of said sweater… Stay tuned!
And thank you again to the fabulous Kari Jenkins for helping to capture this moment of holiday-sweater-recycling coolness 😊
