A striped tee (or sweater) is one of my wardrobe staples. (You may have noticed quite a few still on the rack after my wardrobe detox. 😉 ) I love how well this striped tee and colorful cardigan work together!
I’m wearing: XS in the tee, XS Petite in the cardigan, 27 in the jeans.
Now that I’ve cleared out and organized my closet, I’ve been trying some new combos. We’ve had a bit of “sweatah weathah” in the mornings and evenings the last couple of days. I’ll jump on any opportunity to wear a sweater or cardigan!
This featherweight slub silk knit tee is such a great layering piece, and will definitely be included in future travel wardrobes. (It’s on sale now, and still available in most sizes!) The cardigan is also marked down, as are the sandals!
I just LOVE these sandals. They make everything look cooler. 😎 (My mirror could use a good dusting though….😆 ) Here’s a similar style of comfortable (and budget-friendly) sandals with a fun round heel.
Here’s a little video to show you the details:
The beauty of a cohesive wardrobe
It’s never been my goal to have a huge wardrobe. I get easily overwhelmed by too much choice. But I do like to be able to create some variety, which means being able to wear each piece in multiple combinations. Of course, when my wardrobe was mostly black, that was easy. I was afraid that shifting toward a more colorful wardrobe would make remixing much more difficult. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that’s not the case. By (mostly) sticking to colors in my Spring palette, my overall wardrobe feels more harmonious, and “plays well” together.
Next month we’ll be taking a road trip up the coast, so I’m already thinking about my travel wardrobe. I’ll still build around a core of neutral basics, but am looking forward to including more color and pattern. Stay tuned…
