Boy do I require an award for this outfit. While it might not look like much of an effort to you, it really required a lot of willpower not to belt this outfit - I wanted to try something new. Not only did I not belt the outfit, but I also wore mixed patterns for the first time in my life. Maybe I can qualify for a rule breaking Monday?
I always try to emphasize my natural waist in order to divert attention from my thick middle (also not so affectionately known as spare tire) and large chest, and I find it really hard to let go of that style habit, either for work or on the weekends. It took me a really long time to get used to open cardigans!
What's the lesson here, kids? Trust your friends advice (except when they talk you into getting a last shot at 3AM).
