I said I would play around with the layering potential of this cropped sweatshirt, and I am a woman of my word. Do we like take #2 better than my first attempt?

I definitely think that the sweatshirt print “pops” more when paired with dark colours (or prints) than lighter ones. I initially tried grey jeans with this outfit, and it was a fat, big “nope”.

getting closer with practice

I still do want to try it with a chambray shirt. And jeans. Not together, though. The Canadian tuxedo is ridiculous not my thing, and I don’t care what the fashion industry says. La la la la la, I can’t hear you!

  1. You could do the under the radar Canadian tuxedo and wear black jeans with a chambray shirt? It’s like a sly, cheeky little “I’m totally not wearing double denim…”

    Liking this sweatshirt combo better than the first go around. I’m looking forward to seeing what else you come up with!

  2. What does one wear with a chambray shirt? I would love one, but I only have blue jeans.

    I like this look – the dark colours do make the flowers pop.
