Sweater | H&M
Top | See by Chloe
Jeans | AG
 I got the above sweater at a clothing swap I attended, and have been wanting to wear it, but a little unsure of how to style it. It has a shape which is currently very popular - sort of higher in the front, lower in the back. Since this is from H&M, I get the feeling I'm supposed to wear nothing under it, showing my midriff, and pair it with tiny denim shorts, or black jeans and doc martins. Neither of those looks is in the cards for me, so eventually, I realized the way to deal with the volume was to pair an equally voluminous top underneath it. This creates a lot of movement when I walk, adds some visual interest with the color and texture of the sweater, and the print of the top, and also keeps the look very casual. 
Close up of the details.

I added skinny jeans to balance it out on the bottom, since I think that like a harem or jogger pant with this outfit would look nuts (on me, at least). 
Also, I realized when looking at these photos, that this whole outfit is made up of second-hand clothing! I have been working hard over the last few years to incorporate more second-hand clothing into my wardrobe and so it is a pleasant surprise when the random collection of pieces I grabbed were all used. The sweater, as mentioned, was free, and the tops and pants are from consignment stores. 

 Thanks for stopping by!
