Hey girls hey! I would like to introduce you to my most favorite slash most frustrating sweater *unveils!*

I don't know what it is about this guy, but it has piqued my fancy and I can't get over it. It's just a normal, red ombre-y, slouchy thing but I keep wanting to shimmy into it day after day.

And it goes with nothing.

I mean it does, but it doesn't look very interesting paired with much. And so I keep resorting to it during those mornings when you can barely summon the energy to brush your hair, let alone choose anything that aren't a pair of jeans. But I think I finally cracked it, and at the same time made my peace that sometimes simple outfits are quite lovely too. Especially if they're topped off with wide-brimmed straw hats.

Can we make hats a big deal again? I digress.

Sweater- UO
Hat-UO
Skirt- F21
Belt- CK, thrifted

PS see how I conquered another tricky sweater here!

  1. I know, hats-right?! I love them. This one is such a fun style and looks great on you! I agree that they can turn a blah outfit into something special :) Also, you are SERIOUSLY a genius with a chambray shirt. You know just how to work it into every style perfectly!

  10. Cute look! The hat, nice boots and skirt - I like the vintage school girl or "day out sailing"- feel that I got. ^^

    Happy 2013!

  11. That sweater is great! Really like the red and the slight ombre effect. I love fashion, but I'm definitely a lazy dresser. I'd be content to pair this with black jeans. But I enjoy so much how you put thought into your outfits and come up with so many unexpected combinations. Looks great with the chambray and the blue skirt :)

  17. Yes! That hat is a must! And here I am in visioning you wiggling into that cute sweater....shimmy shimmy....I have sort of missed you.

  18. I think rather than "it goes with nothing" is it is one of those basics. Maybe not meant so center stage (though it certainly looks fun here) in general, but a closet workhorse.

    Or just comfy. One can never overlook comfy. :)

  19. That sweater looks so comfy, It'd probably look great with black leggings and boots too. Cute!

  20. I always feel like it's cheating if I wear a simple outfit. Yours is anything but boring! And yo hair. It's fabulous.

  21. This sweater looks so cozy and I love the boater hat! I definitely know the feeling of having to convince yourself that simple outfits are sometimes the best! Also, these shoes literally go with EVERY outfit you wear. I got a DSW gift card for christmas and MAY have to try and get as close to this pair as possible. Lastly, I totally will join your campaign to make hats a big deal again! Happy Friday! :)

  25. Oh my gosh I have SO many issues with big and comfy sweaters. I absolutely adore them, but I have a hard time with styling them too. You look adorable here! Nicely done. :)

  30. Mentally plastering my face over yours to see if I could pull this off as well as you. I happen to love the combination you've got going on here. So mission accomplished making that sweater look good! Also, you should be president of the hat society seeing as you wear them so well!
