Cardigan over Sweater Dress and Outfit Formulas.

Gray paired with Black, Red and a touch of Winter White (Pearl Necklace) might not be the most genius of color combinations but it works. This is not the first time I wear a Cardigan Sweater over a Sweater Dress, I also did it this time. I even wore the same Pearl Necklace then that I am wearing today. I also have a Headband both times. I call this an Outfit Formula. If it works, it works - no need to mess with it or change it up. I wore this Dress last week layered with a Blazer (instead of the Cardigan), my Striped Fall-Colored Tights, Slouchy Cognac Boots (instead of my Gray ones, today) and another Long Necklace. The Formula works I tell you. This week I have shown you lots of Boots and Booties . See 1, 2, 3. Have you paired Gray with Black+Red before? Do you layer Cardigans over your Sweater Dresses? Do you have any Outfit Formula(s), what are they?

A Reminder: It is Boots & Leggings Week over at Elegance & Mommyhood. If you haven't linked up your Boots and Leggings, or another Winter Must Have piece, do so here and Thank You in advance.

  2. I think the red is a great pop of color! It's a great formula and would work with lots of different colored cardigans, too! I love those boots!
