Style: Backwards Sweaters





 The other day I walked into work wearing one of my new favorite sweaters.
Warm and cozy, not to mention long enough to pair with leggings.  Hello, comfortable!

My macho manager approached me to say good morning with a distinct look of confusion.
I didn't think anything of it so I just went right back to work.
Hours later, a co-worker walked by and yelled "You're shirt's on backwards!".
Hearing that, my manager jumped up, scurried out of his office and said "I knew it"!
Well, at least that solves the mystery of the confused look I got...
After a bunch of laughs, I explained that my shirt wasn't on backwards, that was just the style.
My poor manager looked heartbroken.  With his head down he said, "I guess I'm just not hip".
Little does he know that when it comes to style, I'm clueless!


This lovely, stylish, and comfortable sweater is from The loft.
I got it in Coral Pink Wash simply because it was pretty and my wardrobe was lacking color.
Some of you may remember this post when I went on my petite clothing hunt.

Are backwards sweaters a do or a do not?

  4. Backwards you say? I would have gave a strange look too. I guess I'm not hip either.

    3. For a rhyming cat, you have very limited sweater style imagination. Sigh

  5. haha, that's pretty funny. I like them! I think they're really cute. I think the back buttons are kinda a bonus. But yes, my husband/dad would have thought it was on backwards too.

    1. Do you have to actually do up the buttons or are they just for show?

    2. They are actually functional buttons, but I have never undid them. I just slip it on over my head!

  7. I think it's a little weird

  8. A personal do not for me. It's not my style. But a total do for anyone who feels comfortable rocking it!

  9. I think you know what you're talking about. If you say it looks great, it looks great. Adam is sooooooo old-fashioned and Pat in the Hatt is sooooooo not hip. ;)
