Which One Would You Choose?

Help Me Decide!

I spent most of the past week, the first one of the 30-day wardrobe challenge called Six Items or Less, worrying about how the unseasonably warm weather would affect my choices for the challenge.  

Six Items or Less Dilemma


I was too hot in my green sweater and debated about whether or not to replace it. I spent a couple of days going back and forth about that but finally made a decision. And we finally had a cooler day so I could wear my brown dress...


But now, I am wondering which orange pullover I should have in my six. The one that's actually a dress but can be worn as a shirt (like this brown one) or the one that's a sweater. The dress offers more versatility; the sweater wears fairly well on warmer days.

Which one would you choose?



I had basically chosen the sweater, but now that I see both pictures, am reconsidering the dress! What do you think?

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style  and on Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. They are both so nice. I think the dress is great -- really cute and chic -- and is more of a "look", but would you get tired of it more easily? On a practical level, the sweater might be more versatile considering you are limiting yourself to six items. (Now I sound like my mother, opting for the practical option -- she used to advise me to buy items like a simple sweater when I went for the trendier stuff -- I thought she was boring but there were times when I wished I had listened to her!)

  2. Ann, I'm thinking about the "look" thing, too, and wondering if it will make me happier to wear it since I will have to wear it A LOT! But I know what you mean about being practical, too, because that's what led to ditching the itchy/sticky/warm green sweater.

    The sweater is less uncomfy in warm weather, but will I get bored? It's a bit more plain.

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, Ann. So hard to decide these things sometimes!

  3. I'm voting for the dress. My first reaction was the sweater, since you already had a dress in your Six, BUT, I think the dress is more versatile. Have you tried a hip belt on the dress? A cluster of long necklaces? Those various accessories could make for a dramatically different look - as well as a fitted legging and a heel? Just some thoughts...

  4. Hey there, One Woman! Due to my unfortunate buddha belly (figure flaws, but what can you do?), I cannot do a hip belt or fitted leggings, but thanks for the compliment.

    I am leaning toward the dress myself. And yes, if I throw it in there, I will try to change it up with different accessories.

    Thanks for weighing in, I really appreciate it!
