Simple in Neutrals

by - Thursday, February 20, 2014

I'm a huge fan of making the most of my wardrobe by looking for versatile ways to wear items, thus giving outfits a fresh look. Past examples include: wearing a dress as a skirt/top or a button-up shirt as a jacket. And the list grows with the addition of today's outfit. I started with an open cardigan, crisscrossed the sides, then tucked the ends into my jeans for a faux-wrap sweater look.
