I'm a wife, mom, and doctor. I'm occasionally inappropriate, frequently odd, but not weird yet....I don't think. Bugs Bunny said it best: "It is to laugh."

Cardigan....uh, not so much
Now this is just basted and pinned and the ties aren't finished so the wrong side shows. This reminds me of what the dental hygienist might put on at work (no offense, dental hygienists). This is a representative shirt/pant selection, but I actually went with a sleeveless shirt because the fabric is so thin and shows all lumps.
I chose the blue because I thought it would go with all my neutrals - brown, black, etc. Sandra wanted me to do a black and white stripe, but I didn't have time to look at that fabric.
I'm reminded of my mother's robe from the 70's-early 80's. I blame the fabric entirely - it's SLINKY.
Here's my current cardigan. Maybe it's more professional because the sleeves are straight? Do flared sleeves indicate party time? Or it's such a severe color maybe?
I can shorten and straighten the sleeves, shorten the length slightly, and I'm thinking about using a coordinating grosgrain ribbon (that's actually the other view), but I don't know if I'd wear this to work. The fabric is not professional (and I doubt it has any ethics).
Time to weigh in people. Brutal honesty. You can even mention how old I look without my makeup on, and how I didn't take the time to put on socks or tie my shoes. Or that my bathroom needs cleaning.
