Hey, Ladies! Happy Monday!
Last month I did a post where I took a plaid infinity scarf and a white tee, and I styled it 6 different ways. I received lots of great feedback from y’all on the post, with many of you commenting about how you really appreciated seeing the same items in tons of different outfits, because that’s how we all dress! I mean, none of us wear something one time and then call it quits. We wear it, and wear it, and wear it again.
And then throw it over a chair. And then wear it again.
Or maybe that’s just me.
After all of your feedback on that white tee and scarf post, a monthly series was born (in my mind), and today is the 1st installment! I’m going to call it “Style It Again, Sheaffer!”. I’m hoping these posts will inspire everybody to take a much loved piece of clothing and rethink it in a new and creative way. If you’re like me, you probably get stuck in style ruts. For example, if you are in the mood to wear your favorite military jacket, you might always reach for your grey tee and blue jeans to go with it. That’s a great outfit! But in this series, I will make additional outfits with the same military jacket. I might pair it with a black top and grey jeans with scarf…..or maybe even a blush sweater and white jeans with a simple gold necklace. Some changes you’ll see will be simple, and others will be more out of the box.
I can guarantee you this…you will get TONS of new outfit ideas for items that many of you already own.
Let’s start out with this turquoise fleece top that I first showed y’all last week.
TURQUOISE FLEECE TOP: Style It Again, Sheaffer
In the original look, I simply paired the top with white jeans and a favorite necklace. Because the top was a bright turquoise, I new it would look great with white jeans. I took the outfit into fall with my suede bag and boots, and the agate necklace with multi color beads pulled it all together.
This top is one of the Gibson fleece tops that I’ve been raving about, and this one comes in 4 additional colors. This particular top has an interesting neckline and cute little side ties (that don’t come up too high). It’s crazy soft, super cozy, and perfect for layering (because it’s not at all bulky). For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the top and a 27 in the jeans. The boots are true to size as well.

Style It Again, Look #2
For the 2nd look with this top, I just made an easy switch. For a more monochromatic look, I switched out the colorful necklace for this neutral fringe scarf. This particular scarf is supposedly “grey” per the online description, but I think it’s more of a taupe color. AND Y’ALL. It’s currently ON SALE for $8.98. Buy one for yourself and every lady on your Christmas list. #whilesupplieslast 😉

And because I couldn’t help myself, I also styled it with our beloved plaid infinity scarf. At the current time, this particular colorway keeps going in and out of stock (but as of last night at 7:30 it was available!). However, because I know that so many of you already have this scarf, I had to show how great it looks with this particular turquoise top.

Here are the looks side by side. This top would also look great with both black (click HERE for a great pair) and grey jeans. I’m not sure how much I would love this color with regular blue jeans (it would depend on the wash), but the other colors in the top would all look great with regular denim.
BUFFALO CHECK CAPE: Style It Again, Sheaffer
You’ve already seen this buffalo check cape styled two ways.
The first outfit I showed you was an obvious choice: a black top and denim. The taupe booties were maybe a bit unexpected, but you don’t often find me matching my booties to the rest of the outfit because I like to keep it interesting with a contrasting color.
Even if this was the only look I would ever wear with the cape, I would still love the cape. HOWEVER, I have three more outfits with this cape for you today to show you how versatile it is!

The second look I showed you was with grey jeans and my must have boots! I liked the interest the brown boots added, and the leopard belt made the whole outfit even better.

But I didn’t stop there ladies….now I’ve styled it two more ways!
Style It Again, Look #3
This was an easy change by just switching out my black tee for a white tee. I also changed my jewelry. Switching out the tee colors was an obvious choice, but it made a really big impact on the overall look of the outfit.

Style It Again, Look #4
This 4th outfit is by far the most out of the box combo. I stretched myself with this one, wondering if the cape would look good with white jeans. Well…..the white jeans really transformed the cape and gave the outfit a much brighter overall look, and I ended up LOVING it.

Here are all 4 looks side by side. And I think the grey sweater and white jeans might just be my favorite combo! Thinking out of the box can sometimes pay off!!!
RED TWIST FRONT TOP: Style It Again
Okay, so this is another option in the line of Gibson fleece tops,with a total of 7 various styles total to choose from.
Specifically, this is the twist front top that actually comes in 12 total colors. When I first showed you the outfit, I wore it simply with regular jeans and a gold statement necklace.
The red is just so cheerful, and I thought it would be perfect for the holidays, so I couldn’t resist adding it to my collection! I’m wearing a small, which is true to size for me. It’s quite roomy, particularly around the hips, so if you have a smaller chest you might consider sizing down.

These jeans. Let’s talk about these jeans for a second.
Like I told you a couple of weeks ago, my pajama jeans were feeling too summery to me now with the light wash, so these babies are my new GO TOs. At 5’4″ I have to cuff them to be ankle length on me, which is good news for you taller ladies! I’m wearing a 27, so they are true to size. They suck you in, but still allow you to breathe. #myfavoritecombination
Style It Again, Look #2
For an easy switch up, I simply traded in the necklace for the plaid scarf. Yes, again. I couldn’t help myself, it’s like they were made for each other.
Gosh this is a festive outfit!!!! If you have the scarf, you should probably go ahead and get the top. Talk about perfect for a casual holiday party!

This outfit is my favorite of the bunch! I kept on the same jeans, but I paired the top with my hot pink Kendra Scott necklace and my new Modern Leopard tote. My tote arrived last Friday, and it’s actually what inspired me to put this outfit together. I chose the pink and red combo for my stripe and monogram, and I’m totally smitten with it. I wore my brown MUST HAVE boots to compliment the brown leather accents on the tote, and I thought the whole outfit turned out great. Pink and red together is a bold choice, but on the rare occasions that I do it, I always end up loving it.

Here are all 3 looks. And I can think of at least 3 more combos right off the top of my head that would look great with this top.
GREY TIE FRONT TOP: Style It Again
Yep. I’m wearing another one of the fleece tops in the next several outfits. #icanthelpit
Just like the other ones, this look great on it’s own, but it’s also PERFECT FOR LAYERING since it isn’t bulky. Oh, and perhaps most importantly….FLATTERING AS ALL GET OUT. I actually think this tie front option is my favorite of the bunch (because I think it’s the most flattering), so I’m disappointed that it only comes in 3 other colors. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they add some additional colors.
You saw this first outfit last week, and the top was styled very simply. And man, the outfit was all sorts of comfy. I’m wearing a small in the top and have plenty of room. The site suggests sizing down, but I went with my regular small.

Style It Again, Look #2
Nothing earth shattering here, but I switched out my white jeans for my blue jeans…and I switched out my ugg boots for my taupe booties.
I want y’all to pay special attention to my earrings (a great inexpensive option to my Gorgjana hoops) and my necklace! I got both over the weekend from the BP department (which means they are both super affordable), and I love both of them….but I’m straight up obsessed with the necklace. It’s pretty and dainty, and it looks much more expensive than it is.

Style It Again, Look #3
Confession……I saw this scarf on my friend Erika‘s blog a couple of weeks ago. I was immediately taken with it because I thought it had this great homemade look, and I thought of a friend who I thought it might be perfect for (so I threw it in my cart to see if I wanted to give it to her for Christmas). Spoiler Alert: she’s getting it. Because it’s awesome. (She doesn’t read my blog, so I’m not giving anything away to her.)
This scarf truly does look homemade to me! Now, if you’re not a scarf person (like, if you aren’t used to wearing a scarf), then this scarf probably isn’t for you. It does have some bulk to it, and it might be hard to get used to for some. As you can see, it’s even large enough to style like a shawl/cape.

This grey top can be styled at least 10 other ways…..and you will continue to see it on my blog, so you will continue to see it in different outfits!
Oh, and just in case you are totally crushing on these fleece tops like I am…NOW THERE IS A CARDIGAN. #whoah There aren’t any reviews on it yet, and to be honest it doesn’t look that cute on any of the models, but I’m still 100% intrigued by it’s potential. So don’t worry, I ordered it last night and will hopefully have it to show you by Friday.
I hope this post was helpful to all of you! Like I said, this is going to be a monthly series! Wearing clothes over and over again is something that I actually do in my real life, so now I will start calling attention to it during this series each month. For example, here’s the fringe scarf in a couple of different outfits you’ve already seen (and remember, I styled it with the turquoise sweater above too)!
And here are just a handful of outfits with my long grey cardi, that’s NOW 50% OFF (making it right under $30)!!!
It comes in black too.
And just for grins. I put this outfit together with all items from the Nordstrom sale…

Hope y’all enjoyed the post!!!!! Please leave your thoughts in the comment section. I had so much fun putting this post together, so I’m hoping y’all were inspired!
That red buffalo cape with the grey sweater is adorable on you!! I love this post!
Shay Shull says
Well, how fun is this new series?!?! I love it!!
Love this new series! Not only is it a great way to “stretch” your wardrobe but it’s perfect for travel as well. Mixing the same piece different ways saves precious packing space.
Great point, Megan! I don’t travel often, so I wouldn’t have thought of that! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
This is just what I need. I’m not imaginative at all when it comes to dressing, so I find myself putting together outfits exactly like what I’ve seen on the blog. I think this series will help me tremendously. I bought that buffalo cape when you first showed it, and I love it, but I never would have thought of wearing it with a grey sweater and white jeans. This series is perfect for me!
These are my favorite posts that you do! I go back and look at these all the time when I’m getting dressed! #imadork
Yay! So glad they are helpful, Meredith! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Erika Slaughter says
Love this new series!! And every time I see that buffalo plaid cape I think-WHY HAVE I NOT ORDERED THAT?!!
Well you are just smart smart smart to come up with this new series. Gonna be fun and enlightening with things I already have styled differently!! XOXO Becky
Love, love, love this new series! So many great ideas in this post! Thank you soooo much!!!
Ashley Hatfield says
This is a great post! Thank you so much for styling one piece numerous ways. When I read some of my favorite fashion bloggers, I never see anything on repeat, and that is not how real life works for most people. 🙂
Thank you for showing us how to think out of the box a little bit to create a new “favorite” and maybe unexpected combination.
Thanks so much, Ashley!!!! I have my favorites that I wear all the time in new and different ways, so I’m so happy to know that others are excited about this series! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
So many great looks! The red buffalo check cape is striking on you! Thanks for the helpful post.
I absolutely love this new series! I’d like to put in a request if I may. 🙂 I purchased the camo jacket you talked about, and I’ve already worn it once and received so many compliments. But now I’m stumped. I need more ideas! Help me figure out other ways to wear it, please! The jacket is way out of my comfort zone, but I had so much fun wearing it, so let’s keep going!
Definitely, Kate! I already have another outfit with the jacket, so I’ll do another one and then show them to y’all!
Amy Gallardo says
I love this- I had already pinned a bunch of outfits from the white top post and I really do look over my pins on mornings when mama needs some ideas
I love the scarf and those long necklaces. So cute and they can go with anything!
Oh, goodie! You’re taking requests! I bought that “leather” drape front jacket and I need outfit ideas!
Hey, Melissa! Lol! I’m thinking of doing another Reader Questions post next week! If I do, I’ll include yours and Kate’s requests! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Love this series!! I purchased the “like buttah” and Gibson twist tops and I LOVE them! I usually shop in the plus size section (thanks for posting the plus size option when available!) and the Gibson tops that come in an XXL work well for me! Always look forward to reading your posts!
Barbara Miller says
This idea is great. So glad I found you and became a new follower.
Sheila K Reno says
WOW! Love what you are doing. I have been looking for something like this for some time. Love all the looks.
Love these outfits, Sheaffer! I’m so torn on the Gibson tops. They are super cute but seem a bit pricey for a fleece top. Are they worth it? Will they last a while?
Hi, Jody! I can’t comment on longevity since they are all new to me. Can anybody else comment on this? xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Debbie Ricks says
Seriously, gonna love this series!!!! Do you know if it will be on a regularly scheduled day? Like the first Tuesday of every month, etc.? So excited for this!!!
Hi, Debbie! That’s a great idea, but I don’t know if I can be organized enough to have it on a regularly scheduled day! I’ll see how it goes after the first couple of months! xoxo, Sheaffe 🙂
Jane R says
Hi there – I have a question about the plaid scarf. I love it and just received it in the red color, but it seems huge! Do you fold it in half? more than half? Trying to find out how to wear it so it doesn’t look like its swallowing me up. It looks so cute when you where it!
Hi, Jane! Hmmmm…I’m not sure. I don’t do anything special to it. I just wrap it around twice and kind of pat it down a bit!
LOVE the idea of this series!! It is speaking directly to me!! Show me how to rewear my stuff, Sheaffer!!!!!!
