The only thing I ever pair it with is my navy sweater so I had a hard time putting it with anything other than a pencil skirt and navy cardigan. Challenges are good for me- this may not be my favorite outfit ever but it is not horrible. How can we get better (as people, as librarians) if we don't challenged ourselves once in a while?
