What I wore:
Jacket: J.Crew (2010)
Jumper: Thrifted ($5)
Top: Thrifted ($3)
Necklace: Vintage/ Swap
Sweater: J.Crew (similar)
Tights: American Apparel super opaque ($25)
Shoes: Secondhand ($10)

Where I wore it: To the office

Whenever I'm in need of some new outfit ideas, all I have to do is reorganize my wardrobe. Pulling clothes from the depths of my tiny closet and throwing them on the bed in a pile, I'm able to see new combinations and unexpected pairings. I did this on Sunday evening, rotating a few forgotten pieces to the front so I'll wear them, and bringing order to the tangle of shoes on the floor. WHich is how I came up with this. I've had this polka-dot shirt for a few years now and I love the collar, but the rest of it fits overly blousy with big, billowy 80's sleeves. My solution was to stuff it beneath this corduroy jumper, which worked for the most part. I love how the collar is sticking out, but I have to admit that the sleeves bugged me for the rest of the day, even hidden beneath a cardigan.

I love this so much! AND THAT NECKLACE. Such a good idea to rotate clothing in your closet. So often I forget what I actually have.
