First, the good news. I am feeling SO much better today. Not 100%, but a whole lot closer to my real self. Yay!!

Now, the bad. The subtitle of this post could read: Not looking fab.

Today I was visiting a friend's class. So I decided to go preppy! Hence, Outfit 1.

Problem: I feel sloppy and chopped into bits. The "sloppy" is partly explained by the fact that I am not wearing a belt and, as a result, the pants keep wanting to fall down. I haven't picked up my Hipsi at the border yet.

The chopped into bits part has to do with proportion. The sweater and shirt are nice and boxy. And I have added a heeled bootie to improve the leg line. But I still feel awkward. The sweater is possibly supposed to end at my natural waist. On me, it comes to my high hip bone. Is this the problem? Enlighten me, oh clever ones.

Outfit 2 is yesterday's fail. I do tend to like the "regular" sweater length with a peek of tails only a bit better than the cropped over long on me. But this sweater isn't boxy enough so it squishes the top unattractively. And maybe the shirt isn't long enough, either. I do think the lower contrast probably helps. But it doesn't really seem to be working overall and was quite uncomfortable to wear.

Help me figure out this sweater over shirt thing, please! And this cropped over long thing.
