How To Make a Casual Outfit Look More Pulled Together

A rainstorm was forecast the day I wore this outfit, so the humidity and wind played havoc with my hair. But still I felt at least somewhat pulled together because I wore this twin set. It did all the work for me, because it’s already coordinated. Thank you!

I love twin sets so much, in fact, it became a joke between my husband and me some years ago. Whenever I came back from shopping, he’d always ask if I bought another one. Now, he doesn’t ask anymore; I think he just assumes I did!

This cotton set from Land’s End I fell for because of the stripes. (Actually, I think stripes are my new obsession.) Navy and white is no longer available, but if you like the idea they do have a beautiful black- and camel-stripe cardigan and coordinating short-sleeve sweater, which is a perfect color combination for fall.
