How would YOU wear it? {Style Perspectives}

This entry is part 1 of 14 in the series Style Perspectives

The Blended Blog is hosting a weekly style series on Wednesdays for the next few months. Each of us will take a turn sharing a favorite signature look. Then the rest of us will share our own interpretation of the featured style. We invite you to play along! You can share how you would feature that look on your blog and link up with us each week. Or if you don’t blog, you can share your look on social media with the #theblendedblogstyle and #StylePerspectives hashtags.

For our first day, Library Lovin’ Lady (a.k.a Leslie of Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After) showed us how she styled an outer layer/wrap.

It’s been warming up here so I barely need an outer layer. I started the day wearing red jeans and a grey top, but after I saw myself in photographs, I deleted that grey top from my wardrobe. I have another space to fill in my closet when the shopping ban is over!

I subbed out the grey top for a grey leopard print cami. I paired it with a grey lightweight waterfall cardigan. I have gotten so much use from this outer layer! It’s so versatile! Since the day was really warming up, I didn’t like the way this looked; it was too dark a look for the beautiful weather. I decided to change to white jeans. I liked this so much better.

However, one little sub brought this outfit right into spring. By changing out the grey cardigan for a coral one, the whole look is brighter.coral cardi

Which look did you like better?

Do you have a favorite outer layer you like to wear a lot?

I'm a wife, mom, and a homeschool teacher. I'm always behind on housework and paper pile sorting. I'm fond of this crazy life but not of melted cheese. I want to follow hard after God, making each day really count. I like to run, read, cook (and eat!). Thanks for joining along on my journey!

  1. Amazing what one (or three!) little swaps can do for an outfit! I really like the monochromatic look in the first picture AND the brighter springy second look! NICE! I styled a more wintery look and linked up to The Blended Blog! See what you think!

  2. Love this outfit on you! The leopard print cami is so fun, and that pink color is one of my favorites!

  3. The outfit changes so much just by swapping out the color of the cardi. Both looks are fantastic.

  4. Ditto, what my friend Deena said above. Crazy how switching the colors of your cardi changed the whole personality of this outfit. I am on the look out for a pair of pink pumps (a lot Ps) just the shade of your pretty sweater. You wear that color so well, my friend.

  5. Sheila – I like both your looks. I thought the first look was my favorite – and then, I saw the pink – and it is a tie – the both look great.
