Oversized




Oversized sweater, old, Marshalls // Dress, Loft, sold out // Booties, Joe Fresh on sale now!

I get that "oversized" is not the same thing as a SUPERSIZE happy meal,  but it can just as gratifying. What is there not to like about this figure-flaw hiding style?

Wearing anything oversized can be a tricky thing though.  You have to find just the right piece that looks fashionably chic rather than looking as if you are drowning in it.  I always go up a size on sweaters that I plan on layering over my clothes, as long as it does not look sloppy.  I like that happy, go lucky feeling I get when I wear oversized clothes and maybe, just maybe, I will supersize that meal after all.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oversize your style too:

  2. You're so right about selecting the right pieces for the over sized look. If I'm not careful, the volume plus the weight of the fabric will make me look several sizes larger, or like I'm being swallowed. Your carefully chosen pieces look great on you.

    hi Monica! I am back in blog-landia and would love to see you over at Simple SEQUINS, k? How are you and yours doing? I feel great and am loving life after bc treatments. I'm still getting a non-side effect chemo until April. Have been getting it for nearly a year. Have to have it a year, I should say. Darling ensemble, my friend! ♥, Renae
