Simple in Neutrals

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.

  1. Great look with the cardi - Love how creative you are in reworking items in your closet! I don't think I could pull that off - I'd be messing with my clothes too much.

    1. Nah, I bet you could :) This is probably the easiest and non-eye-rolling-inducing clothing hack I've come up with to-date, lol.
