When I was in grade school, I was introduced to "K.I.S.S.": Keep It Simple, Stupid. I have carried that philosophy with me through the years. It applies to so many different kinds of situations, personal style blog included.
I haven't worn this cardigan in nearly two years, mostly because I thought it was too bold for winter, and that it didn't match with anything other than navy or dark purple (as seen here). (It also bugged me that I couldn't figure out what color this cardigan is. What color would you call it?) Then it hit me. K.I.S.S.! Pair it with something neutral (and given some weight gain, pair it with something comfortable and not form-fitting)! My black dress fit the bill perfectly. I can't believe that at one point this black dress was neglected. It's proven to be an incredibly versatile piece! I added the necklace and belt for interest.
