Return? light blue sweater

Just sanity checking before I return it (and pardon the lack of glasses - I'm used to my face having more color than this now.)

If I should keep this sweater - let me know :)

    Well, not sure of your criteria, but to me, it's not a 10 :(  I vote let it go and make room for something perfect (or darn close)

    I agree with abc that you can find something better! It is a fun color though.

    What are you wanting Amy?  To me this seems like a good color on you - perhaps a bit on the light side for your coloring - but not bad at all!  When I wear a sweater like this I semi-tuck and push up the sleeves, but I know that probably isn't realistic for your temperatures - but that adds some structure to the look.  Is this an everyday, homeschooling the kids kind of sweater?  Or, for going out, errands, church, etc. etc. - where you want to be a little more dressed up?  What is it made out of?
    Sorry if I'm just getting in on the tail-end of this decision-making process!  Maybe all of this had already been discussed?

    I agree with Marley, depends on your needs. Color is pretty and it looks nice on you but fit isn't a 10.
    Fab boots and cords!

    I think you should return - it's not a 10 and you're not in love with it, so no need to keep it. Lots of sweater options right now so you'll find something you love.

    Sorry - I was unclear on my criteria!  I've been looking for a light blue sweater, but this one to me looks dated and a bit big.  I also like the color.

    Ideally, I think I want a sweater that's nearly this color (I'd like more "french blue"), drapey, soft, warm, and maybe tunic length.

    I also vote return. I know it is not supposed to be bodycon but the shape is not perfect. I agree... maybe too big. I agree on it maybe being dated.
    Would it be better in a cardi style - if you love the color. Would you get more wear out of a long semi-fitted cardigan in this color ?

    Return. Looks dated and a wee bit frumpy.

    Probably good to return and keep looking. I love blue on you but agree if you want to be picky, a richer less pastel version would be fab.
    Congrats on being picky, BTW. I have finally gotten better at that myself including returning items after I put them through the at-home test.

    Another vote for return.
