WhatIWore: I wasn’t really sure of this outfit when I stepped out the door, but looking at it now - I like it! Weirdly I think what makes it work is how I did my bangs off to the side a bit. Looks a little parisienne, non?
This is the sweater I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. Ever the perfectionist (I’m working on lightening up, promise), I went back and ripped out the hem so I could fix how I binded off (in a rib pattern to provide more stretch). I opted to leave the sleeves intact but to wet them and pop the entire sweater in the dryer. I actually think I could probably try that again with a little higher heat and let it shrink up even more. That said, the fit is still nice if not a little roomy in some places (sleeves, neckline), but that’s alright with me.
