Pairing old with new...

One of my goals this year is to shop less and save more. I did a great job of it in 2009 but I know I can do a better job in 2010. So I'm trying to "shop my closet" and when I buy new pieces make sure they are versatile. And my first attempt to do this was today with this outfit. The new item is the cardigan from J.Crew (purchased on sale plus 25% off) and I paired it with a big brown belt from Forever21 and a camel wool skirt from GAP (which I have had for 5+ years). I think the outfit came together nicely. And I felt the purchase was versatile because I can wear it with jeans or dress pants and it can be worn for three different seasons...spring, fall, winter. What do you think???

It's perfect! I try to do this as often as I can...but it can be difficult when I have that little voice in my head saying..."it's not new" I'm working at this.
