There are so many things I'm excited about in today's post I'm not even sure where to start. But since they all kinda tie together I guess I'll start with this sweater from Lynn Louisa (more about that fabulous place in a minute). When I find a piece of clothing I love, I wear it constantly. This is one of those pieces and, if you ask me, it's actually begging to be worn in a ton of different ways. Which is exactly what I wanted to showcase today.

For look one, I wanted to dress it up a bit. The drapey back makes it perfect to toss on over a lacy bralette for date night or girls night. I feel like that makes enough of a statement on its own so I paired it with my go-to faux leather leggings and strappy sandals. It's a no-fuss look that's actually super comfortable. Mostly because the sweater is 100% cashmere and feels like you're wearing a cloud.

Completely switching directions for the second look, I wanted to share how I wear the same piece basically every other day of the week. I often stay in my workout clothes after the gym (don't judge) or wear them instead of real clothes when I work from home, but that doesn't mean I don't want to look cute. Once again taking advantage of the open back, it's the perfect chance to show off that super cute sports bra or strappy loungewear bralette you just bought.

If we're being honest, though, sometimes I don't feel like dealing with an open back situation. Maybe all my cute bras are in the wash, I have a toddler hanging on me or I'm just not into it. Enter look three. You can still wear the same sweater, just turned around. All you need is a small safety pin and you've got yourself a v-neck. Or, toss on a camisole and leave it open. Done and done.

The last thing I want to talk about is where I actually got this baby -- Lynn Louisa. They've been in D.C. for a little less than a year and you can find them up Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Not only is the store gorgeous, but it's stocked with the best basics that are classic, minimal and anything but boring. Think the classic leather jacket of your dreams, buttery blouses and awesome denim. Gabby, the owner, has the best eye for finding pieces that can easily slip right into your existing wardrobe and also have some kind of unique detail that takes them to the next level.

If you're not in D.C., you can find them online here. But if you are, then you'll absolutely want to do yourself a favor and pay them a visit. In fact, they're having a fun little spring shopping event on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other local businesses like Floradise Orchids (you might've seen them at the Dupont Farmer's Market on Sundays -- they have the prettiest orchids!) will be there along with some yummy juice samples from Jaco Juice and Taco Bar. They're also going to be debuting some new pieces for spring and offering 10% off your purchase all day. You can peep some of their selection online and/or follow them on Instagram.

I hope you love them as much as I do! And if you end up buying something, please be sure to tag me and share!

Thanks to Lynn Louisa for collaborating on this post.
