I was trying to create an outfit with one of my patterned, boho blouses - which are very me... in other seasons! In winter i susilly deafault to a pullover. My relationship with cardigans lately has been so so. I’m kind of off the chunkier ones, and the shorter ones make me feel frumpy except with summer skirts and dresses (they are needed then). This cardigan is less chunky, anyway.

Anyway, I ended up settling on something after a few tries. I think there may not be enough contrast in all this, or something. I think the pieces are all me individually, but not when put all together. Does that even make sense? The outfit is not bad! I’m just not feeling that it’s quintessentially me either. It might have been me a year or two ago, though.Or maybe with blue jeans to make it all feel less dark.

I think I shouldn’t have tried to force wearing a blouse for this challenge since I know we may do it again in different seasons.

Added a pic without the cardigan.I prefer it this way a bit, but need the cardigan as an extra layer at times. ETA: to be clear, I don't think the outfit fails as an outfit, but just may not fulfill the challenge in a way that satisfies me.
