Taking a sweatshirt and layering it over a collared shirt is one of my favorite outfit ideas. One problem is when the shirt underneath is a bit thick and the sweater on top becomes lumpy and unflattering.
In the pictures below the photo on the left is layering the sweater on top of solely the button down top, The photo on the right is a bit more form-fitting and all around flattering, and used the tips found below.
1. First layer put on you collared shirt
2. on top of the button-down shirt layer a tight tank-top or cameo, causing the button-down shirt to be held in place, and hugs to your body smoothing out any major lumps. Personally I think it is also more comfortable because the shirt below stays in place, and I don't end up wiggling around trying to shift it in place all day.
3. Finally layer a long sleeve shirt on top!

I don't know about anyone else but I like snooping on other people's creative journal spreads. When I first got this book: Wreck this Journal by Keri Smith. I spent so much time scrolling down pictures of different things people's journal wrecking.
So here is my very first journal page entry.

Bloody Chester by J.T. Petty and Hilary Florido
The graphic novel is centered around Chester Kates, an outcast in his current town. Chester is hired to burn the abandoned town of Wales, to make way for the new railroad. But what's a story without a hitch? Turns out the town isn't as abandoned as he was led to believe. Then comes the question, should Chester complete the job he was sent to do?
This book is quite enjoyable. the authors placed some tricky plot twists, making a unique story, I thoroughly enjoyed. The reader has many questions throughout the adventure, and as some are answered more questions are created. Most of my questions of the plot were answered. Some were a surprise. I did not find the book predictable at all, which was quite enjoyable. But as I mentioned before, although sort of tied up, in the end there were some blatant loose ends.
As in many graphic novels I find character development is weak. A reader can't get to know the characters intimate thoughts as a traditional novel allows. Usually I do not find this to much of a hindrance of a graphic novel. In this novel especially, the character development didn't dip past the surface, an outsider (aka the reader) seemed out of the loop. In many books I like to feel a connection to at least one of the characters, someone I could see as a friend. This did not take away from the story itself, but it would have made the novel on a whole more enjoyable.
I liked the artwork. It had essential details, and got the point across. I wouldn't say it was the most beautiful work ever created, but by no stretch was it a crude drawings.

And to another reader I would say " It was pretty good you should try it sometime, I liked it."
