One of the things I love about this outfit is how comfortable it is. The blouse underneath is loose and thin so there aren't any constraining areas. The sweater is one of my favorites that I've had for a long time. It's cotton, so it's breathable and flexible.
Enough about the function of this outfit though.
Strategic layering, like I did above, is a great way to change up your wardrobe with what you already have. Think about the items you always own, and pair them with different things. You'd be surprised what you come up with.
