Quote of the day: “I think you always need to try your best, but at the same time you can only do what you can do.  Don’t beat yourself up about it.”  Heidi Klum

I bet that at this age, we all have at least one crew neck sweater in the closet.  There are many variations including v-neck sweaters, but today I’ll show a fabulous modern look with this sweater type by layering it with a blouse & then adding a necklace.  Make sure your blouse is relatively fitted so it doesn’t add too much bulk.  If you happen to have a blouse that is too small and you’ve been meaning to throw it out…here’s one way to put it to use–hide it under the sweater.

50’s Crew Neck Sweater: I love this denim shirt because it’s a dark denim and really goes with everything.  Since this sweater is pretty thin, I could see the outline of the breast pockets through it and so I just used my jacket to cover it.  For the younger crowd, let the blouse tails hang out!

60’s Crew Neck Sweater: I found a picture of a set up like this on pinterest after we had just bought this blouse & statement necklace for Nancy…I love it when a plan comes together!!  This sweater is actually higher than most normal crew necks but still works wonderfully.

70’s Crew Neck Sweater:  Mom never throws anything out so finding a crew neck sweater was easy!  This outfit is really no different than Nancy’s, but mom didn’t have a statement necklace; however, any short or mid length necklace will work.  If you get too hot, you can easily use a short sleeve blouse!

    Again, these 3 pretty sweaters look great. Love yours with the denim shirt and Nancy’s green with a black and white palettte. All 3 necklaces are perfect. I really covet Charlotte’s orchid sweater – an exquisite color not easy to find.

      Your point about that color really makes you realize that you can’t get any or all colors whenever you want. We really are at the whim of the retailers—which is why I do love thrifting so much—definitely more color selection!!
