Remix: Cropped Blue Sweater

This blue cropped sweater from Forever 21 has served me well over the past year-or-so that I've owned it. If I remember correctly, it was only around $12. The color is fantastic and it's nice and light which is usually appropriate for Georgia weather. Something like this can be worn a bunch of different ways. Here are some ways I've worn my blue sweater, starting with my outfit from this Thanksgiving:


One of my all-time favorite ways to wear this sweater is with my white lace dress.Something about the little lace collar peeking out makes it the best thing ever. 

Looking at these pictures I now realize that apparently my leopard print flats are magnetically attracted to the blue sweater because I wore them in 2/3 of these outfits. Leopard and royal blue are made for each other, right?

It's kind of funny that a cropped sweater actually is the perfect length for my torso. I've been looking for more sweaters like this but have yet to come across an affordable one. That's okay, though, because I have about a billion cardigans and really shouldn't start collecting a billion pull-over sweaters.

I hope you're all having a nice week and a happy Wednesday!

Blue and leopard are great together for sure - you really show it here! I think a good staple like this is great to have - I don't have a good reliable crewneck sweater actually!

I love this whole post and how many different ways to styled the sweater. The first has to be my favorite plus those tights are adorable!

I can see why you've gotten so much use out of this sweater! It's adorable and I love the color. Great basic pieces like this go so far! i love it paired with the mustard shorts, and again with that pretty white lace dress (or skirt, I can't tell). Beautiful remixing!

Awww i love the one with the lacy collar peeking out too! I love when a sweater is that versatile- and that electric blue color makes every outfit so fun and interesting. I have one like that just in burnt orange and I physically have to stop myself from wearing it every single day haha

we all have that piece of clothing that has been featured on outfit posts a gazillion times. For me, I think it would be a blue-white checked vintage skirt, so this gives me the idea of doing a similar post. I do love that colour of blue, and it's the perfect neckline to wear with collars, and perfect length to lay over dresses, the perfect jumper overall! I do love those bow tights and the last outfit is my favourite also.

Oh, I love how different all of these outfits are! You're quite the remixing queen. I've actually got a blue sweater myself and have been at a loss at how to restyle it... not anymore! :)

Cute, cute, cute! I love this shade of blue but I honestly don't think I've ever paired it with leopard print. Which is surprising because I own like a 1,000 leopard print things lol. So thanks for the inspiration!
