As some of you know I attended my 5th year college reunion this past weekend at Gettysburg College, in Gettysburg PA. This picture was taken there; it’s me, wearing a sweater that is mentioned below. Packing for this momentous occasion did present some challenges, noted below:
- People smoke in bars there, so anything you put on your body will take on a horrendous odor for the rest of the weekend.
- Frat (Fraternity) basements are disgusting and will ruin your shoes, so don’t wear anything nice on your feet.
- You will be seeing people you haven’t seen in years so look your best without giving off the impression that you tried to look your best.
I tried to follow those rules and came up with a few good options for day and night occasions. What I did not factor into the equation was the temperature. I didn’t bring a jacket and it was chilly there, so I paid the outlets a visit and purchased an amazing sweater from the GAP outlet that I wore all weekend and am currently wearing now at work! What I tried to do was layer with some different pops of color and accessories. My favorite look was combining two sweaters; the one underneath is lightweight and has an asymmetrical shape so the tails of the sweater pop out and present an interesting look. I also belted it to provide a bit more shape, but used a skinny belt to keep it feminine. Any jeans will do with this look, but here are some cheap high wasted ones I found.
