I love getting questions from readers (hint, hint!), so I was happy that Hadyn emailed last month with an outfit question. You may recognize Hadyn as a frequent guest blogger here on merelymothers (read her last post here). She is the mother of a two-year-old and works at the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation.
Hadyn asked for some ideas to change up the following outfit, comprised of three great basics: a cardigan, riding boots, and tan corduroy pants. I love the bright orange color of the cardigan and pairing it with more neutral pieces, as she did. But sometimes we can get sick of pairing the same sweater with pants and shoes, am I right?
Time to switch it up!
1) Try a skirt or a different color pant, and try wearing the cardigan open with a shirt underneath:
4. Try a belt:
5. Try combining things from each step. I love that navy top with the orange!
Hadyn ended up with TEN new outfits from her own closet!

What is your favorite combination? How would you wear an orange sweater?
You can always email your fashion questions to merelymothers [at] gmail [dot] com.
A big thank you to Hadyn for the question and being willing to take and share all of those great outfit photographs!
