Brr...it got cold again! I really love this sweater, but struggle to wear it since it's so loose. I've been in a flowy mood lately, so I went with the trouser jeans anyway, but I think the tucking and belting helped. I wonder what it would have looked like if I hadn't tucked but just belted the shirt like a tunic? Hmm....ideas, ideas.
I love the color of the shirt, which helped break up all the neutrals. I also liked how the necklace peeked out, although it is actually a little lower (see full-length photos for how it looked most of the day).
Ehh...something about this outfit feels a little off. It also looks a bit old and frumpy. There's something very Mr. Roger's about it. Maybe skinny jeans next time?
How do you keep yourself from looking frumptastic? Suggestions for what you can do before you leave the house would be great (as opposed to when you take photos 12 hours later).
