Failed Execution

This outfit had all the makings of something great, but I feel like the individual elements didn't come together well.

Plaid button up?
Embroidered cardigan?
Gray skinnies?

Whatever the reason (the fit of the cardigan? the combination of everything together?) I didn't love this outfit. And then it got me thinking that this style of cardigan is not very flattering on me. Which got me thinking about how long I've had it.
High school.
Freshman, maybe sophomore year.
So, a long time. And for how pretty it is, it's not something I wear often. Maybe once or twice a year. So, in an effort to be a grown up, we parted ways. That's happened to a lot of other pieces in my closet lately. I'm realized more and more that FIT is EVERYTHING.


Interested in hearing more about that? 
Maybe I'll share some more of my insight on fit, and well see if I've applied that to my style lately...

Shirt: from a friend
Sweater: Express
Jeans: Aéropostale
Shoes: thrifted
