This outfit is something that I liked in theory, but now seeing it in a picture, I can see things I could have done differently. Sometimes, taking pictures of what you're wearing really helps you edit it until it looks right. This is one of those times where I think I should have done that, so I thought I would share it. My biggest gripe is that bag. I've been wearing a back-pack to help my back; it's been aching recently and I'm sure it is due to the weight distribution of my heavy bags. With this sweater though, I can't have anything pulling at the sleeves to preserve the shape. Also, I could have done without the necklace. What I do like is the silhouette of the swingy sweater and tight pencil skirt, and how the browns really help the plum color of the skirt pop. All in all though, I did enjoy wearing this out, and with a few swaps, it's something I would definitely try again.
