Learning to Embrace Baggy
I like defined shapes. I wear a lot of belts, cropped cardigans and jackets and form fitting clothes in general. Big, baggy clothes haven't really been my cup of tea since college. Although back in college putting on actual clothes and not just pajamas was a big step for me, so using that as a touchstone doesn't really mean much. One day I will scan some photos and you will all have a very big laugh at my expense.
This outfit represents me out of my comfort zone. I was planning on belting it till I caught a glimpse in the mirror (as I was crossing my room to grab a belt) and thought, "oh, this doesn't look half bad just as it is." And since I'm trying to try new things and go out of my comfort zone a bit I left the house sans belt. I will say it was a very comfortable outfit.
The top is via Re/Dress NYC and you first saw it in September (where I wore it with a belt) and the jeans you've also seen before, they're Z. Cavarichi via Ross. Since the outfit felt slightly masculine to me, I felt the need to overcompensate by having it unbuttoned pretty low and flashing some cleavage, and some bling via my H&M "pearls" and bejeweled flats from Nine West.
