DIY Off Shoulder Sweater + Mesh and Chiffon Maxi Skirt

I have had this JCrew sweater in different colors for ages (back when I lived on the east coast), so when I moved to the west, I really didn’t need all my cold weather pieces (wow, I have been here for almost a decade).

It was originally a cute, semi crop turtle neck. I changed it into this 80s off the shoulder top and stretched out the sleeves. I usually don’t care how it fall – I just let it be.

If you are looking for one that is already off the shoulder, found this gorgeous pieces for cheap here. You know I’m obsessed with FreePeople.com so I love and gotta have this red one available for purchase here. Buying your sweater a size larger is key to obtaining the cozy, effortless fit. You should also try surfing the freepeople.com site for more options.

I wore the royal blue version of this skirt a couple of days ago here. Here’s the pink. I love them equally for obvious reasons. It’s via ASOS.com (c/o American Express), available here for purchase.

My bag is courtesy c/o Onna Ehrlich Bags available in leather here. Earrings are c/o LindaLu Designs available on Etsy here. Enjoy…xx

      I cut it from where the turtle neck attaches to the body of the sweater, then stretched it out some more 🙂

    What a feeling! (Flashdance reference) You look absolutely stunning. The uber feminine skirt with the chunky sweater is totally inspired.
