I came up with an experimental outfit that I'm quite on the fence about, so would appreciate any and all feedback my lovely readers have for me.
I hate wearing button-down shirts. I find them uncomfortable because the collars always seem to sit really high on me, they gap in the front, they always ride up my waist, and it always seems like small is slightly too small, but medium is huge and shapeless. The problem is, I love to wear sweatervests, and I love the way a button-down looks under a v-neck sweater, and I feel like if I'm going to be "professional" I have to own some of these damn shirts, so I keep buying the damn things and then never wear them.
This morning, I was rooting through my closet and I espied these two, short-sleeved button down shirts I bought last year.
|Another problem is that I always get really excited and buy two|
of everything, and then when I discover the item is imperfect for me
I have two of it.
When I wear these shirts (which is rarely--I think I've worn each once), I usually put a cami underneath and leave the top button undone. This solves the collar and the gaping problem, but may look a bit sexier than I want to at the public library. So I thought I might try putting one of these shirts under a basic black wrap dress that I have.
Here's how I usually wear the wrap dress:
|Nude or fun-colored cami underneath--easy peasy|
|Gah! That collar is grazing my ears--so uncomfortable!|
What's the verdict on this one? Weird? Good? I should just stop trying with the button-downs and let the dream die?
