I feel like this outfit straddled the line between Willy Wonka-ville ridiculous and pretty cool, and it was the black cardigan that played the biggest role in keeping it in that precarious balance. Sometimes, you just need a little bit of black to keep an outfit grounded.
I have been wearing black and blue a lot lately, and I think it’s starting to affect me subliminally. Or maybe I’m just suffering early winter dysphoria. In any case, this turned out to be a happy blue outfit – mostly because I got a kick out of it’s almost-ridiculousness.
