Fuzzy and White

Sleeveless Button-up: New York & Company, via Goodwill
Sweater: Mossimo, purchased secondhand

Pants: Old Navy

Shoes: Nine West (scuffed up after barely a year!  le sigh...)

I find myself venturing into the button-up/sweater combo sometimes.  After I've been wearing them for about half a day, I remember why I don't tend to wear this combination.  I can't stand for my clothes to shift around, and that always happens to me when I wear a button-up/sweater.  I feel like I'm always pulling the button-up down, as it tends to creep up on its own.

On the flip side, I love this outfit.  I did finally realize that in order for me to be more comfortable with this style, the undershirt needs to be sleeveless.  No bulky sleeves under the sweater!  This sweater is just the right amount of fuzzy.  You'd think it's itchy, but it's not.  In fact, and oddly enough, it only itched after I took it off...

So, how do you wear button-ups and sweaters?  Do you steer clear of them like I tend to do or are you a button-up/sweater-wearing pro who'd like to share your secrets with me?


  1. i love wearing button ups and sweaters together. i have a tendency to fold up the cuff of both the sweater and the button up, which i think might minimize some of the shifting.

    Oh, that's a good idea! I will try that.
