One new arrival I was looking forward to was the Floral Sweatshirt in Sea Green Gray. I tried both this one and the Navy Navy on and liked this one more. It seemed a little more versatile to me. The Navy ran small on me. I tried on a Small and it ran tight across the chest, while the Gray in Small was a good fit. The Medium in Navy was a better fit but not as slouchy as the Gray in Medium. The front material of the Navy is silk while the Gray is Brocade. I felt I would snag the Navy so I brought the Gray in a Small home with me.
Now, let’s see how well I like it after putting it through the “1 Item, 3 Ways” test.
First, I paired it with the Andie Chino’s in Fatigue and the Frye Anna Leather Oxford. I think I can do better on the shoe with this one but the Floral Sweatshirt does pair nicely with the Andie Chino’s. It will also look great with the Navy and the Tuxedo Stripe. (I’m guessing the Gray Andie’s will work as well but I didn’t purchase those.)
Next, I paired the Sweatshirt with the Cafe’ Capri’s in Iced Lilac from a season or two ago and my Gray Bronson Booties in Suede. This looks really good with the light purple and this color is one I would never have thought of if I hadn’t been trying be creative with this Sweatshirt.
