3-in-1! {Tide Pods Review}

Every year, I have a strong tendency to buy something new and fall in love with it. I want to wear it every single day and find new ways to wear it. This year, it’s this waffle sweater. I absolutely love the color, the texture, and the fit. I’ve put together a few possible different ways to wear this sweater. It’s great for church, for running errands, or for a date night, just depending on the way it’s styled.

spring sweater #2


This first way that I like to wear it is with a simple, black, cotton pencil skirt. The sweater is the perfect length so I don’t need a belt. It’s very sleek and put together, but still comfortable enough that I’m able to move. I put on my favorite monogrammed gold necklace, my very basic nude pumps and some mint colored earrings that I received for Christmas. spring sweater #3

This next outfit brings in a little more color. The mint color of the sweater is beautiful, but I love to throw in some bright colors, too. And on a casual day, running my kids around, I need to be able to get in and out of the car easily. And walk on the pavement while carrying kids and their bags. I put the mint sweater with some cropped, straight leg jeans and a flat brown sandal. To accessorize, I grabbed one of my most colorful, lightweight, beautiful scarves. And then threw on some simple earrings and easy bangles.

Spring sweater #1

This last look for the sweater is still casual, but a little more dressed up. This is how I would wear it on a date night with my husband. Some skinny jeans in a light pink color with a high casual wedge. Wearing my favorite monogrammed necklace again, I also put a pretty link bracelet with it.

Because I have this tendency to love wearing the same thing over and over again, it’s important that I find a detergent that is gentle, gets the job done, and brightens.

The Tide Pods are just the thing for me. The Tide Pods are a detergent, stain remover, and brightener all in one–the only 3-chamber unit dose on the market. I love how easy they are to use! They are completely mess-free, so there’s no spilled detergent or messy cap.


Just one of the Tide Pods removes more stains that 6 caps of regular detergent. (Based on stain removal performance of one pac of Tide Pods vs. 6 doses of the leading liquid bargain brand base variant in a standard top loading machine.) And they protect the outfits I love and wear the most, keeping them bright, spotless, and comfortable. You can pop in a whole new kind of clean with Tide Pods!

    I have a Donna Karan cardigan that I use constantly whether is be completely played down with jeans, with dress slacks for work, over a dress, etc., etc., etc. It is the best money I have spent and was not alot of it because it was a great find at the Maxx!!!

  2. Kelly says

    I have a cute black dress that can be dressed up or dressed down. For summer- I can wear it alone. For fall, add a cardigan, for a fancy night out, I can add a nice necklace and nice shoes.

  3. says

    My brown riding boots go with everything. I feel like I can dress them up with tights and a skirt, skinny jeans and a top for date night, or leggings and a cardigan to just be super comfy!

  4. Rebecca says

    I love sweaters for 3-in-1 style. They are my go-to to dress up and dress down anything. I love quality solid sweaters – J Crew is my fav. Not only can they dress up or down but you can wear them during all four seasons if you have mild summers (which we do where I live). Sweaters go with shorts or jeans and throw a jacket over them and you’ve got a great winter outfit.

  5. says

    Definitely a pair of black ponte skinny pants I have from Banana Republic. I wear them to work all the time, can dress them down with my TB black flats, or dress them up with a flowy silk blouse and some heels. I should have bought 3 pairs of these things!

  6. kate says

    I have been wearing my brown boots constantly – they go with everything! Dresses, skirts, leggings, skinny jean, anything! I am afraid I’m going to wear them out!

  7. Corie says

    I have a pair of grey boots that go with anything. I have worn them with dresses, jeans, leggings and a big sweater and many more ways. I am going to be very sad the day they are worn out and hope I can find another pair just like them. Also that color of the sweater is amazing, I love it.

  8. Cathy C. says

    I love cardigans. My favorite are 3/4-sleeve, lightweight cardigans from the Gap Outlet. They’re perfect for all seasons and can be paired with everything from a sundress to jeans to slacks or skirts for work.

  9. Katy says

    I absolutely love my white jeans come summer. I can wear them a million different ways from casual to more dressed up. I absolutely need a great detergent to keep them looking new because, as we all know, it’s way too easy to get white jeans dirty!

  10. says

    I love my dark purple AG skinny jeans. I’ve worn them with a silk tank and gold sandals in the summer, with a camel colored wool turtleneck and flats in the winter, and most recently with a chambray shirt and a colorful scarf for these in-between winter/spring months in Texas.

  11. Deborah Rapose says

    I have a black sweater that I seem to wear with everything. It is awesome for work and than I can wear it casual with jeans or dress it up with a dress. Please pick me!!!!

  12. Mami2jcn says

    I have some black leggings that are very versatile. I can wear them with sandals and a sundress for a summer look, with UGG boots and a sweater during the winter, and with sneakers when I exercise.

  13. says

    You have such amazing style Erin! I love doing the same 3-in-1 with my sweaters. I have navy cable knit that looks great with jeans, dress pants, or even capris!

  14. says

    I have several cardigans that I can wear out, to church or at the office. I work in a large Drs. office and it is always cold. Summer, Spring, Winter whenever it’s cold so I always have a sweater near by. But I find that I wear the same ones to church and out to dinner or wherever also. They are very versitle. Love the looks you put together.

  15. says

    My 3-in-1 go to piece is my chambray shirt – I love it with a skirt and heels, or dressed down with colored jeans – there are so many ways to wear it! Love your looks.

  16. Elena says

    I have a dress that I can wear with sandals in summer, with leggins and boots in winter and with jacket and high heels for a night out

  17. Meaghan says

    Lately, I’ve been reaching for my favorite plain tees and feel like they have been providing great 3-in-1 outfits for me.

  18. says

    Erin – that sweater is a beauty!! I’ve been trying to find out more information on it – does it pill, is it worth the money, do you need something underneath it. Show us some pics of you wearing it?? Thanks!

  19. Sarah Wright-Gaul says

    I have a monogram JCrew sweater that I wear to work, out running errands and for date nights! I like it so much I want to get another one! It is the perfect camel shade and seriously, I have not found anything that doesn’t go with it. Love that sweater!

  20. Meredith A says

    I have a navy dress with belt loops that I can wear in so many different ways. All I have to do is change up the belt, or wear a different colored cardigan, add a colorful scarf or necklace. It is great in the summer with cute sandals or in the fall or winter with boots.

  21. anonymous says

    i just got a cute black floral skirt (from target!) on friday. i wore it paired with black tights, short black boots and a hot pink sweater to a party that night. i wore it with black tights, black mary janes, a black blazer and pearls for a memorial service yesterday. i look forward to wearing it with a t-shirt, bare legs and sandals or flats this spring and summer.

    btw, i just discovered tide pods – and love them. i’m teaching my stepdaughter how to do laundry and it’s much simpler (not to mention tidier) to have her just pop a tide pod in the machine.

  22. says

    My favorite pair of leopard print shoes are my newest “fun” addition to my closet and so versitle. I’ve worn them with a black dress and black tights and gold jewelry to work, with black pants and a neutral sweater, with jeans and numerous colored sweaters/shirts out with my husband. They add a shot of pattern and color to neutral outfits and are still easy to wear to work (without looking cheap/tawdry). I’ve always wanted animal print in my closet but was really nervous about how to pull it off and now I’ve realized how easy it really is!!

  23. says

    I have heathered charcoal leggings that are perfect for wearing under a dress for church, with a cute tunic for date night, or with a boring cotton t for every day around the house

  24. Lisa Brown says

    My short length white wrap dress. Can be a dress, a tunic to go over leggings, flared/boot cut jeans, or over a pencil skirt. So versatile.

  25. Ellie W says

    The most versatile I have is a dark blue tunic. I can wear with everyday jeans or over many colors of leggings. I can even get by with wearing as a short dress.

  26. says

    My Ugg boots offer 3 in 1 style. I can wear them out and about with leggings and a tunic, around the house, or took sweatpants into them for comfort and warmth while running errands.

  27. Kelly D says

    My tan cardigan is very versatile. It can be worn with jeans, dress pants or a skirt and different shoes that coordinate each look.

  28. Lindsey says

    I have three things: dark skinny jeans, tan suede boots, and leggings. All three things can be worn all the time, but paired with different tops looks like you have a huge closet!

  29. says

    For me it’s a classic button down white shirt, it goes with skirts, suits and instantly classes up my favorite jeans, it can be worn alone or layered under a cardi or jacket, that’s definitely 3-in-1 action right there!

  30. CrisM says

    I have a grey sweater that is always my “Go To” when I have no idea what to wear! Dress it up with a pretty scarf or fancy necklace, dress it down with a casual scarf or my favorite silver chain necklace, or wear it plain! Now maybe my “Go To” is the favorite silver chain necklace….hmmmm……

  31. Jenny R. says

    White jeans/white pants! I love them so much, I have multiple pairs…skinny, dressy, jeans, etc…and they all work in multiple ways to dress up, dress down, make a monochromatic outfit, make a color pop, dress, church, day-to-day. I wear them year round and never feel out of season as long as they are worn with seasonally approriate clothes…they’re a staple go to!

  32. Ali says

    Erin…I have to know where you got your gold monogram necklace from…I have been looking at one from Tiffanys, but was hoping to find one a little more price friendly!

  33. Lacey S says

    Love love love my black skinny jeans! They can be paired with boots or heals and have a dressed up or down look to them.

  34. Megan says

    I have a caramel colored cardigan that is my go-to winter item! It’s been a lifesaver this year by making a casual outfit look dressy in an instant!

    I bought a little black dress years ago as an alternate dress for a fancy Christmas party. Never wore it and forgot all about it. I found it several years ago when cleaning out my closet and have worn it countless times for fancy and not so fancy events ever since. Best dress I ever bought – especially since it was only $12!!

  39. Jaclyn Rose says

    I am 8 months pregnant with what appears to be a BIG baby! Ha! My most favorite piece of clothing, currently is a white maternity undershirt from Target. I wear it with everything! I actually bought several because I literally wear it every day. I am not big on maternity clothes so I still wear a lot of regular sweaters and even some regular jeans, in fact the only maternity thing I’m wearing today is the undershirt! Ha! The length helps me cover up the rubberband expanding my jeans and the fact that the sweater is no longer quite long enough and it allows me to still look polished and comfortable! Couldn’t live with out it right now!

  40. Darcy says

    My go to piece is a great pair of dark washed jeans! I can wear it casual with flip flops, sporty with sneakers or dressed up with heels!

  41. Jessie C. says

    My cardigan sweaters are the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe, I can wear them alone , as a light coat, with pencil skirts, jeans, pants or dresses all year round. Perfect to dress up and down for all occasions.

    My black leggings

    – under a skirt with boots for night out
    – with a tunic for daytime
    – with a t-shirt for the gym

  43. Sonya Morris says

    Being pregnant and due in a few weeks, about the only versatile piece I own would be my jeans! For runs to the store I wear them with a long sleeve t-shirt and loafers. For other times, I dress them up with flats and a nice sweater. This is making me wonder what I will be wearing after I have the baby especially with the weather changing!

  45. Sara says

    I have a plum/purple colored open cardigan that I can wear with anything. It’s nice to dress up to wear to work or just wear casually on the weekends to run around town. It’s especially helpful now that I’m extremely pregnant and my wardrobe is shrinking!

  46. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    I have a gorgeous light blue sweater just like the one pictured in your review. I wear it most often with my white jeans, but it goes great with a pair of black leggings or jean capris!

    My black leggings. I can wear them with a long sweatshirt, cute short top, or a nice long pretty blouse.
