One Piece, Many Ways

I have a confession…

Stripes puzzle me.  Especially horizontal stripes.  I know they’re popular, people love them… They’ve just never been ~my~ cup of tea (is stripe-phobia a thing?).  However, I’ve seen other people make them look pretty darn fabulous!  And when sweet, talented Audrey proposed a *one piece, many ways* challenge, I knew this would be the perfect chance to figure out the stripe!

We all know I love cardigans~  The first time I saw this in the store, I didn’t get it.  I thought the price didn’t justify the purchase, and I wasn’t sure I could pull it off.  So I waited, and visited it in the store occasionally.  It was finally on sale this weekend, though, so I took it home with me~  Now to make it work!

It is still summer here in Chicagoland, so I wanted a lighter warm weather look to start with

This was a good challenge for me: not only did I gain a new cardigan (yaaay!) but I figured out new ways to use a wardrobe basic.  This piece has a strong blue color, so I was glad to see it pairing well with my other blues.  Also? The stripe was surprisingly versatile, it worked well with a lot of my other prints.

Also?  If any of you have stuck with me since the last *one piece, many ways* challenge, you’ll remember I wanted to start looking for new accessories to incorporate into my lookbook.  I’ve started with my cobalt blue braided belt and a vintage silk scarf.  Still looking for some bracelets, a watch, and a necklace alternative.  (And shoes, of course, always shoes~)

  1. I love it against a crisp white shirt. And I’m really impressed by all the ways you were able to wear this!

    • Thanks! This was my first foray into stripes, so I figured I should try it with everything! Someday I should do a post of the *what didn’t work* pics~
