I’d like to start a new thing (well, not really that new since Jill from Good Life For Less used to do this every Wed), but basically once a week I’ll show 1 item worn 3 ways.
I think these are always really helpful posts because they show how pieces in your closet can be worn several different ways, and it also helps me think outside the box.
Today’s item is this deep purple, draped neck top. I bought this several years ago (at Nordstroms) and to be honest, I don’t wear it all that often. It’s such a gorgeous color and I love the ruching- so I’m not really sure why I don’t wear it.
My first look is what I’m calling the ‘typical mom’ look. Here I’ve paired the top with a cable knit gray sweater. I love this sweater because it is so warm, it’s long enough to cover my bum and the dark gray color goes with everything! To tie the purple color in, I chose my Stella and Dot necklace and wrapped it around my neck twice. For my bottom half, I chose my James jeans and my black boots. I think this is a great everyday outfit- it’s warm, comfy and cute!
My next look is the ‘office look’. Here I have paired the top with dress pants and pointy shoes. You’ll notice I changed the chunky cable knit cardigan for a light gray cotton sweater. I also changed out my necklace for something with a little more texture and interest. If you work in a conservative office, this look is perfect for you!
My last look is the ‘trendy mom look’. Here I am wearing my skinny cargo pants and let the top shine on it’s own. Looking at the pictures though, it seems a little too plain… maybe my fur vest would complete the look?
