Pears my be one of my least favorite fruit; right up there with red apples. Unless prepared in a salad with gorgonzola, endive, and walnuts, I say no to the awkwardly shaped fruit because they are either too juicy or extra mealy. When I first saw this sweater I had mixed feelings. I obviously loved its kitschiness, but could I really promote a fruit I so openly despise? And then I realized this is just like those guys who wear baseball hats of a different team based solely on the color combination. If a Yankees fan can wear a SF Giants hat, then I can wear a god damn pear. Done deal.

So now here you see me wearing this pear-centric sweater on one of the more spring-like days we’ve had so far. There’s just something inexplicably wonderful about how kitschy tops — be it a cat, a toothy smile, or an in your face, bright yellow pear — lessen the seriousness of an outfit. Obviously wearing a giant pear shouldn’t be your go-to sweater for a job interview (unless you’re interviewing to be a babysitter in which case wear it everyday), but for those hectic errand-filled weekends when acting like an adult feels slightly exhausting, busting out something a little more playful is surprisingly refreshing. Extra points if you glue a pair of googly eyes on it.

Who needs the Harlem Shake when you can do the Skeptic Tap Dance?
