Lighten Up

by - Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I've worn this sweater many times, but not once have I worn it as a tunic (which was its billing on the product description, I believe). The intentional half-side-tuck shortened the sweater and just looked more casual to me. Like with most pieces I own, it was only a matter of time before I'm tired of the same old look. I think wearing the sweater untucked dresses up today's outfit a bit -- or perhaps it's due to the jacket and/or heels. As an added bonus, the tunic-length also hides the unsightly denim creases at the top of my thighs. Win-win, if I'd say so myself.

    1. "Soft look" was the term that I was searching for, but my brain could only come up with "neutrals, beige, camel, light colors, ehhh..." before it gave up ;) Thank you for your kind words, Nikki!
