Day #34 – Checkmate

Clothing Object: UNIQLO Purple cardigan


Rating: 7/10
So this outfit went from being a “going out to do errands” outfit to a “going to the hospital” (and not for work) one. In a turn of events, my sister had to get emergency surgery to extract her burst appendix. She’s fortunately doing well and I can put that night behind me. I think it was fortunate, in a sense, that I decided to wear something comfortable for that day considering how much waiting around emergency situations involve. I bought this cardigan last summer on a quick trip to NYC with a good friend. He’s a huge advocate of all things UNIQLO and ended up spending hundreds of dollars on pants and button downs. I bought 1 chambray shirt and this cardigan you see here. Heh. I do like this cardigan. At the time, I was on the hunt for a coloured cardigan to brighten up my otherwise monotone outfits. Unfortunately this purple was the brightest thing they carried and I came back to Toronto only to realize I own 2 other purple cardigans. I will keep it though because it’s exceptionally comfortable and light. I paired it with my layering staple checkered button-down chiffon top from H&M also seen in this post.

Verdict: Keep

Day #30 – Gloom and Doom

Clothing Object: LOFT Olive green waffle sweater


Rating: 9/10
It was super gloomy today so I wore a super neutral outfit to go with the weather. This is the olive version of the sweater I featured in this  post that I bought last year on sale. Here I wore it with my usual collared shirt pairing and shiny black tights. I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of layering sleeved button downs under sweaters because 90% of the time I find it too stuffy. I actually have a small collection of chiffon button-down sleeveless tops from H&M that I use for layering under sweaters. They’re handy because they can also be worn in the summer under light cardigans without all the weird sleeve bunching. Also I apologize again for the weird lighting and odd posing (the CLAWW). And now that I’ve said it, that’s all you’re going to see. Heh. 

Verdict: Keep
