    That’s a lovely sweater! You’re right though- the tshirt does look better with it! πŸ™‚

    I like the both versions πŸ˜€
    But yeah, I understand how you feel better in the B version.
    Your lunch looks great, specially with that amazing looking bread!

    Tshirt is definitely the winner. I used to wear “henley” tops with tank tops under them all the time too- but a tshirt is so much comfier!

    You look more confident the second time around, in addition to what you said. Cute sweater, looks better with leggings too.

    I totally know what you mean about wearing a tank top or a t-shirt under a sweater like that. I would feel more comfy in a t-shirt too! Love the salad! It looks so colorful.

    Mmmm sausage (twss).

    I agree with you on the sweater. The tee makes the deep vee nice and long, lengthening your whole look. The tank chops it off and ruins the whole long, lean effect.

    You look so much better with the tee under the shirt! Thanks for the tip!

    Yes, I like the t-shirt version better too. But what I really noticed was how different your body looks from then to now. Wow! You look great, so fit and toned, long and strong and lean. All that hard work really shows.

    haha I have the same sweater still in my closet! I prefer to wear a tank top, rather than a tshirt. like the length of tank tops. t-shirts are usually short on me.

    I think the tank looks good, perhaps a higher cut one could work better?

    Also, yes to sausage!

    I had sausage on my salad today, too! Of course, it was Tofurkey Keilbasa Sausage, but hey, it was awesome.

    Yes, the tee under the sweater looks much more sophisticated. Good call.

    Smart idea w/ the sweater! I always feel more comfortable when I am less exposed :p The salad sounds YUUUUMMYYYY, Ive never had sausage in a salad!

    1) Yummy salad. I wish I had sausage and could recreate it up in Philadelphia, but I am all out πŸ™
    2) I think you looked great in both pictures. Exhibit B is definitely a little bit more polished and office friendly though. I can’t wait to try the T shirt under the sweater trick. I always wear tight fitting tank tops underneath.

    The t-shirt does look better but I think it’s mostly because you seem to have so much more confidence!

    You definitely look more confident in picture B. I used to always wear “cami’s” aka the tight form fitting tank’s under my sweaters and now I don’t. You’re right it makes all the difference–sometimes I think you just need to learn the hard way what looks good on your body πŸ™‚

    That does look great on you!

    Sadly, a deep V with a crewneck Tshirt under it like that would look terrible on my large chest….just not flattering unless you have small buubies. I always have to go with a scoop neck.

    I have that sweater too! I still have it, but I still wear it with a tank underneath. I think I’ll try the t-shirt style now though!

    The tank looks fine. It’s just that trends change and you’re thinner.

  31. Lish

    I really hate how some tanks/camis cause static cling when paired with a long sweater like that. I really like them paired with a tee and it’s nice that Old Navy is always having sales on their standard basic colored tees.

    Um, of course it looks better on the right, you are much thinner!

      So thinner automatically = better?

      Let’s please not equate thinness with superiority.

        I wasn’t making a sweeping generalization… just commenting that, in this case, Meghann looks better in the second pic because her body does. Again, it’s just obvious.

        I love the whole “love yourself no matter” mantra (and I believe in it!) but don’t be so defensive. She looks better in the second pic, and it isn’t because of an undershirt.

        Of course – I agree that fitness makes you look good. πŸ™‚ I just think it’s REALLY important for women to be conscious of how we use our language, and that saying that someone looks better strictly because she is thinner puts all the emphasis on her weight. We are so much more than that.

    I kind of like the tank-top look better… maybe something higher-cut so no cleavage? Whatever makes you happy! As long as you feel good wearing your sweater, that’s all that matters.

    wardrobing and styling our clothes is something that we all get better at with age (well most women do) and I look back at some of my old get-ups and wonder why no one told me certain things, too! You look great, in either shot, btw! πŸ™‚

    I like both versions, too. The first looks like casual (like hanging out with family or going to a casual restaurant), while the second looks more business (so something you’d wear to the office). If the boobage made you uncomfortable, though, then by all means, you should definitely go with the latter!
