I've had this sweater for years and it is one of my favorite pattern pieces. I definitely tend to gravitate towards solids, so I've been trying to step out of my fashion comfort zone and wear different patterns and mix and match patterns that I never would've put together. That's one of my favorite aspects of being part of the personal style blogosphere...I get so much inspiration from everyone! I love to see what others put together and how I can reinvent it to work for myself with what I've got in my own closet. There are endless combinations in my closet and I just need to learn how to harness all of the potential and make it work for me:)
I did a bunch of things with this outfit that I normally wouldn't have done. I wore a black undershirt and hat with a brown corduroy skirt. The only reason that I think that it actually works is because the leopard print cardigan has both black and brown tones in it. I am really breaking the rules...go me! The sweater also has these fun plastic gems sewn on...it really makes the cardi a bit fancier and also eliminates the need for a necklace or any other accessory. I opted for brown tights and since there is still a foot of snow on the ground here I wore my UGGs to keep my toes toasty:)
Sweater: Marshall's (Kenar)
Tights: Century 21 (Hue)
What do you do to break the rules or step outside your normal comfort zone??
