It may almost be March but the weather in Chicago is still throwing sub-freezing temperatures our way. Which means that today I’m wearing double sweaters. Yes, that’s right, I have on a cardigan sweater over a turtleneck sweater. And I’m nice and toasty.

Seriously, I honestly never thought about putting a cardigan sweater over another sweater. Other than those sweater twin-sets that were all the rage when I was in high school, I mean. Anyway, this particular cardigan works well because it’s almost like a jacket. Which means it’s not too clingy with the sweater underneath.

I actually really ended up liking this outfit. I can even recreate it for a non-Friday and just wear it with black dress pants, too! Or I could wear a different colored turtleneck underneath. Maybe blue? See? Sweaters upon sweaters can be super versatile!
