Two Ways: Purple Sweater

I have decided to start doing posts called "Two Ways" that will show you how to take a basic item and wear it multiple ways. Before buying any item, I try to think of at least two outfits I can wear it with. In my opinion, buying a piece of clothing and wearing it the exact same way every time is a waste of money! In an effort to save some cash and flex your styling skills try pairing a staple item with something unexpected.

LOOK #1:

The bright color of the sweater keeps the look feminine and exciting.

Sweater: J. Crew; Shirt: Madewell; Shorts: H&M; Oxfords:Aldo; Tights: Hue

LOOK #2:

Break out of the typical "sweater, jeans, and boots" rut by adding a pair of colored denim and a funky necklace (although if you are wearing a bright color on top I wouldn't suggest also doing that on the bottom).

Sweater:J. Crew; Necklace: J.Crew; Jeans: Forever21; Boots: Steve Madden

I came across this light denim vest and just had to have it. It's such a great way to break up boring sweaters in the cold weather. Plus, it looked great with the outfit I had on at the moment.

Vest, sweater, necklace:Madewell; Skirt:Forever 21: Boots: Spring shoes

A closer pic:

I  used to be totally against denim pieces because I thought they were only for cowboys and old ladies but now I can't get enough. Madewell has an exceptional selection of denim button downs that range from relaxed to tailored. There is something for everyone!

Gambino Take Two

Yesterday I went to the Childish Gambino concert at the Filmore in Silver Spring. Had an amazing time. Great music and great company.

Sweater/necklace/tights: Madewell. Everything else H&M

 And if the night wasn't great already, the bday girl snapped a pic with her fave artist at the end of the night. Happy birthday indeed :)
