Dress: Old Navy | Olive cardigan: Target | Belt: H&M | Wedges: Target | Bag: gift; ebags.com (shop)
While this outfit may not look particularly special to you, it’s significant to me. I’ve had this dress and this cardigan for a long time, long before I discovered style blogs, but I’d never put them together. I think it was partially because the cardigan didn’t provide shape to an already baggy dress plus I just hadn’t thought to do black and olive before. Then I discovered style blogs and I figured out that you could belt a cardigan and that a belt could pull together a look in a cinch. (Ha, sorry, couldn’t resist.) In my enlightenment, this outfit was born, and I was a proud mama. It marked a new way of looking at my wardrobe that I was excited to explore and ultimately led to creating this blog.
I suppose I should be saving this kind of stuff for my posts about building a remixable wardrobe, but really, this whole blog is about figuring out how to work my closet, right? Right. I still haven’t written the remixable wardrobe posts, but they’re a’comin!
