Measure Twice...Cut Once...

While digging through my closet the other day, this sweater fell on my head...literally.  Since I have not worn this much since I purchased it last year, I decided to challenge myself to style it two different ways...

First, I styled this sweater for a Purim party at Alex's school.  I knew there would be a lot of people there, so I wanted to dress it up a bit...no just my usual jeans...





To dress up the sweater, but still make it preschool appropriate, I opted for pairing it with a denim skirt and comfy boots.  I also added some extra sparkle with this rhinestone necklace I poached from my mom and some fun bracelets.  This styling of this sweater worked perfect for an morning of mingling with parents and celebrating the holiday.







A more casual vibe for running around with the boys at the mall and the park.  I styled the sweater with a simple tank top with purple jeans...a spring color for an unseasonably warm winter day.  Accessory wise, I thought my initial necklace and some chunky silver jewelry would work well.  Due to the temperature, it was so nice to not have to wear boots for once, I decided to go with these fun purple flats.  With this outfit, I played with the boys all day and was comfy and stylish.

This is one great sweater, glad it fell on your head :) I like it paired with the lavendar jeans and mustard tank under it.

I like this sweater, but I can see how it'd be challenging to style sometimes. It's so memorable, so I like how you've styled it in two totally different ways!

Also, I love your "R" charm necklace! Where did you get it?

Well I'm glad the sweater fell on your head then--it inspired you to create two cute outfits! I love how the boots in your first look add a bit of funk!
