getting back on that horse

It isn't that I haven't gotten dressed since finishing my 30X30 Challenge, it just that I was a little "outfit photo" burned out. Not a real world problem, only a Fashion Blogger problem, but taking outfit of ones self every. single. day. is HARD
Ok, now that I have that whining out of my system, here is an outfit:
{ What I Wore: Francesca's cardigan, worm as a shirt // Tulle jacket // Citizens of Humanity jeans // Nine West leopard heels (on sale!) } 

{ Get the Look }
red cropped jacket {$84.99} + houndstooth sweater {$98.00} + wide leg jeans {splurge $220, currently on sale for $67!! // save $39.97} + leopard heels {splurge $110.00 // save $20.98}
I have had all of these pieces in my closet since before I moved to Nashville - so at least 4 years, some even longer (the Tulle jacket & Citizen jeans are from when I used to work in a boutique, oh how I miss that 40% off discount!)

Yet I have somehow not arrived at this combination before today. I really like the "mod" look of the exaggerated houndstooth print, cropped jacket & wide leg pants.
Oh & after wearing skinny jeans pretty much everyday for the past few weeks, my legs feel so free in the comfort of all this denim space ... ahh!

Have you "rediscovered" anything in your closet lately?
After shunning 99% of my clothes during my 30X30, it is so nice to have all my lovelies back!

Happy Friday!
Congrats to the winner of my 30X30 celebration giveaway... was it you?
(the winner has been emailed, and if I don't hear back in 48 hours another will be picked)

P.S. When discovering all of these items in the back of my closet, I found many more that no longer fit my body/lifestyle, and listed them (at ridiculously low prices!) on Poshmark... check it out why don't you (so I can afford a new camera lens!!)

  2. I love the way you styled that cardigan, buttoned low cut and tucked in. I had a houndstooth homecoming dress in 11th grade. It is one of my favorite prints!

  9. Your cardigan is SO cute and I love how you are wearing it as a blouse.  Makes it a bit more sexy than a traditional cardigan.  Totally loving your entire outfit from head to toe!!!

  10. I love the cardigan styled as a shirt, and it's gorgeous with the red jacket! I remember getting outfit-photoed out when I did the 30X30 too, and my husband (my photographer) was ready to be DONE.

  15. I am totally crushing on that red jacket! I feel you re: outfit posts. I have done two total on my blog and I just can't get up the mojo to do more. Possibly because I feel like a fatty - but most;y because it is cold and I am lazy.
