in anticipation of sweater season, i recently ordered this ribbed cardigan from j.crew’s point sur collection. when it arrived, i wasn’t 100% convinced it was a piece i could see living in my closet. so after hemming and hawing over whether or not to return it, i decided to try my hand at styling it with pieces already in my wardrobe. i figured if i could come up with a few different outfits that i loved, it would help convince me of the sweater’s versatility. i ended up putting together four looks that i would wear any day of the week and in all honesty, i could have put together four more. turns out, this sweater is a real MVP! below are the looks i created -each perfect for transitioning summer style into fall.
before we get started, all of the earrings i’m wearing in these photos are handmade designs by my bestie, natalie. unfortunately they are currently sold out, but visit her website to keep updated as to when more inventory will be stocked.

jenni kayne flats (similar)
madewell striped peplum top (small) (this season’s version)
jenni kayne sneakers (9.5) || natalie borton hoops (c/o)
frye boots (9.5) || natalie borton earrings (c/o)
natalie borton earrings (c/o) || janessa leone hat (similar)
after styling it four different ways, i’m pretty convinced this pink sweater is a keeper! i will definitely use this exercise again for any future purchase that garners lukewarm feelings. it also reminded me of how many good pieces i already own! to see more about how i put these looks together, you can find the videos in my “outfits” highlight on my instagram profile.
