Truth: I hate trying clothes on. I love love love shopping, but I do not love trying on clothes in the store. I really have to be in the mood to try something on, so normally I just buy it and hope for the best, and if it doesn't work, I'll take it back. Now if it's an occasion that I need something, of course I'll try it on, but my general rule is that I try it on at home. So, this sweater wasn't what I thought it was, because of said rule. I was picturing an oversized sweater that would be perfect with leggings, but put it on for a casual Saturday and it just wasn't what I was hoping. I almost returned it, but tried it on with these white jeans and decided it was a keeper. I also paired it with regular jeans and boots, and it's the perfect lightweight sweater for this time of year. So while my rule of thumb didn't quite get me the sweater I wanted, I'm still glad I snagged it.
