Oh the frustration when an outfit doesn’t quite live up to expectations. I didn’t realized until looking through these pictures that the grey sweater layered on top of the button front wasn’t quite the right shape or proportion for this outfit. Typically, when I wear a pair of skinnies, I don’t worry if the shape of my sweater is boxy, oversized or unflattering. The fit of the jeans makes up for the oversized nature of the top.
This time, though? Not sure it’s right. The grey sweater is designed to be oversized, but layered overtop of a breezy, relaxed fitting button-front, it doesn’t look pulled together. It looks … messy (the fact that this picture was taken at the end of the day, and I’m wrinkled doesn’t help, either).
Which is fine, because now I’m playing the “what sweater do I own that I could layer over this shirt,” because I really like how it looks. In my head.
There’s something about needing to go back to the drawing board that I really, really like. Do you have any sartorial challenges you love to come up against?
