Getting dressed is never as easy as it looks.  The key to putting together an outfit, is choosing a focal piece you can style the rest of the ensemble around.

With the magic of this simple, yet well constructed knit sweater, this look came together effortlessly, and I was off to the park in no time.

My favorite part about this thrifted piece that recently found its way into my closet? Its reversible collar, which can be worn buttoned-up around the neck, or loose.  I tried both ways (as shown), but the dramatic, high neckline is definitely my preference.
