Sweater & Sparkle

Sweater: Old (similar from Brooks Brothers, RED Valentino or J.Crew) | Shirt: Abercrombie | Skirt: Crewcuts (runs large, also in women's sizing here) | Tights: H&M | Shoes: Via Spiga | Sunglasses: Chloe | Bag: Vintage | Necklace: Ann Taylor | Bracelets: Saks, boutique | Watch: Michael Kors

Sometimes I challenge myself to go through the items in the back of my closet and see if I can work the things that have been hiding back there into fun new outfits. I decided to give this old sweater (I think I last wore it over ten years ago) another chance. I liked how it looked with this new navy sequin skirt and some additional red and gold accessories to make the sweater look a little more polished. I think sequin skirts and big, warm sweaters are a great combination for days when you want to be cozy, but want to add a little extra sparkle to your look.

Readers, have you recently repurposed any items that you've had sitting in your closet for a while? What were they?



  1. I think it's fun to go through my closet to see what clothes I had that forgot about. I do that every once in a while. Yay for sequins in the daytime =)

  2. This combination is just so, so good!!

  3. in love with your sweater! looks fab with sequin skirt!

  4. I love doing that! It helps me decide if I should keep something. Just when I'm ready to throw something out, I try to force myself to wear it one more time. Maybe I find a new love for it, or I realize that I really don't want it anymore. I really love what you did with this sweater! I don't know how versatile it is, but it was definitely worth pulling out at least one more time :)
