Boy howdy did I struggle with this outfit. I was in some kind of a bizarra slump having to do with this sweater. I really enjoyed how I styled this sweater the first time that I wore it, and originally, I copied that look down to almost every detail, with the exception of the hat.
As I gazed at myself in the mirror, I realized that my copying the previous outfit was almost completely inadvertent. And that I really didn’t want to wear the exact same outfit again. After all, that was part of the reason why I got into my sweat pants addict conundrum in the first place.
So, I revisited my closet, and found alternatives, created a few different outfits. I wound up choosing this specific outfit because the subtle stripes in the sweater are complemented by the bolder stripes in the wrap, and it was the kind of day where being wrapped in a blanket was the best kind of accessory. And happily, I can wear these shoes for even longer than before without negative consequence. Stubbornness has its benefits!
