Blogger Inspiration

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, & I hope that's how Carylee feels since I jumped on purchasing this uber comfy cowl-neck poncho sweater from Old Navy after she mentioned it on Instagram.

See Carylee's Full Outfit Details Here

I bought this sweater in heather grey without even trying it on first.  Once I got it home & tried it on - it was instant love!  All I have to document the first wearing of this sweater is selfies, but hopefully you can see it well enough.  I opted for white skinnies, & flat ankle boots, & finished it off with rose gold accessories.

Sweater - Old Navy // White Denim - Loft // Boots - Target // Long Necklace - gifted // Lips - MAC's Violetta

On the day I wore this it was warm enough without needing to layer, but as you can see from Carylee's outfit, it's very easy to layer a long sleeve shirt underneath this sweater too.

One of the first things that came to mind when styling this sweater is to pair it with a skirt - more specifically a sequin skirt.  I don't own a sequin skirt (sadly), so I've given an example below.

I also think this skirt would be fantastic & I adore this one too.

Another way I plan on styling this sweater in the future is with printed pants....such as this:

Oversized Sweater

The pants in the inspiration board are actually corduroy, which adds even more depth & richness to the ensemble.  The very trendy patterned legging might also be a great option with this sweater - I've been eyeing these!

So, thank you Miss Carylee for the inspiration & I hope these examples help you (the reader) style this sweater or a similar one you may already have.

Before I go, I wanted to mention that the very talented Gina over at On The Daily Express is doing a coffee date with Stacie & I today.  Be sure to hop on over to see some behind the scenes of the blog & learn a little bit more about us - I can't wait to read it myself! :-)  A huge "thank you" to Gina for featuring us - xoxo!

  2. Ah! I loved this sweater too and was very tempted to get it except cowl necks do not agree with my current hairstyle. (Neither do scarves for that matter, so you won't see me wearing many this year!) LOVE the way you styled it with the white pants and light booties. :) It looks like a perfect, versatile piece. Thanks for coming along on my coffee date. It was just too fun having sisters. :)

  3. I am all about anything and everything from Old Navy right now. They have been killing it, including this sweater!

  4. This is really a cute sweater. I just love oversize everything, and when I saw her wear this I thought it was super cute. Now that I'm seeing your version of it, and I'm liking it even more.

  5. A great sweater to wear alone or layered. I don't own a sequins skirt either but have been so tempted to get one.

    Thank you for sharing on TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you on Thursday.
