#7 - Reciprocal

I don't remember a whole lot of specifics about middle school math class, but for some reason, I always think about reciprocals in the context of outfits.  You know, where 1/2 is the reciprocal of 2.  You just flip the top and the bottom.  This outfit is basically the reciprocal to this outfit.  Instead of a black skirt and red cardigan, I'm wearing red jeans and a black cardigan.  It's an easy way to remix.

See, Mom and Dad, your investments in my education were totally worth it! 

Also, my hair is different in these pictures, because I braided it the night before.  So it's less curly and more like tiny waves.  Probably not something I will try again! 

Shirt: J.Crew factory
Cardigan: Gap
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden


  1. This is a great formula to remix your wardrobe. Switching out top/bottom definitely helps get more wear from your wardrobe. I am a sucker for red jeans so I love this outfit!

  2. If I like colors together, keeping the combo, but switching the pieces is a great way to mix it up! I really like that pattern on your top, too!

  3. We are always talking about outfit formula's but you've taken the style math to a whole new level! I never really thought of it like that! Love this outfit, I'm sporting red jeans and black cardi on the blog today too!

    1. Boo me. formulas not formula's (I couldn't let it go haha)

  4. I love the "reciprocal" look! Very fun way to switch up the look of an outfit. Do you have a close-up of the pattern of your shirt anywhere? I'd love to see it if you do!!
