  1. Printed swing dress. ($30)
  2. Long cardigan ($30)
  3. Tunic turtleneck sweater ($60) 
  4. Skinny jeans ($60) 
  5. Graphic tee ($30)

From those seven pieces, you can create variations of outfits to get you through whatever activities you have going on:

  • a swing dress, cardigan, and flats for meeting up with friends,
  • a turtleneck tunic sweater layered over a swing dress with booties for Thanksgiving dinner (with room to grow!),
  • jeans, a graphic tee, and extra sweater for warmth for Black Friday shopping, and
  • a graphic tee, jeans, and a cardigan for traveling home in comfort.
