backwards





Cardigan: J. Crew; Skirt: Zara (similar style here); Shoes: Brian Atwood; Bag: London Fog; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: J. Crew necklace, bubble bangles c/o Bauble Bar, Michael Kors watch

One of my obsessions lately? Wearing cardigans backwards. Makes for some interesting conversation starters while you're waiting for the bus. (And who doesn't love practically doubling their collection of sweaters with about zero effort?)

In other news, I finally joined the rest of the 21st century and created a Facebook page for This Time Tomorrow. Just a few years behind, no biggie, right? I'd love it if you could stop by and like it!

Happy Thursday!

  16. I just did this with a mans v-neck the 26th!
    Wearing stuff backwards is a very loved go-to for me..I use to overlap razor back thanks in different ways and colors all the time. I also use to wear one of my mom's cardigans with jeweled buttons in high school backwards all the time in high school...so much fun!

  26. This is totally gorgeous and I love that you're wearing your cardi backwards. It adds a dose of fun into your otherwise prim and proper look. I also love the classic silhouettes and materials in a spunky colour combo - so beautiful!

    Hope you're having a great day Krystal!

  55. I think this post just saved my life! I work at J Crew, and the old dress code used to allow associates to wear cardigans, now it requires sweaters. This creative idea of transforming your cardis into sweaters is brilliant!! Now I don't necessarily have to go buy a ton of new sweaters to be up to code! THANK YOU! :)

  56. I am loving the detailed texture of the lace skirt. It's absolutely fabulous and I am totally envious. The mustard sweater makes this perfect!
