Coach by Saint James Striped Top, Chanel Blue Jumbo

Top: Saint James for Coach. Jeans: H&M. Sunglasses: Gucci. Shoes: Joan & David (similar). Handbag: Chanel. Lipstick: MAC ‘Girl About Town’.

 

Sometimes a girl just wants to wear a loose shirt.  Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to walk around all day sucking in her stomach.  Sometimes a girl wants to eat a delicious, big dinner without looking like she’s pregnant afterwards in her fitted top.  But this girl has a hard time finding non-fitted clothing that doesn’t make her look huge because this girl is short and curvy.  Enter this girl’s hero shirt . . . the Saint James for Coach drawstring top.  This girl has finally found that perfect, cute-yet-casual, eat-all-you-want, wear-when-you’re-feeling-not-skinny, fitted-but-not-fitted shirt.

 

P.S. I’ve linked up with Jane from Toronto Shopoholic for her #waywewear series.  This month it’s all about print mixing!

    So simple & chic! I have a hard time finding loose tops as well. My son already rubs my belly and says “Hi baby” so I don’t need any extra loose material around my belly.

    I always love how you pair your outfits with one of your beautiful purses & the outfit is stunning!

    I love this hair bun on you Jenny, really shows your pretty face :-). I have the same problem with loose Shirts, most of the time they put 50 pounds on me :-). Love that casual look on you, ist different from your elegant looks and we all like changes sometimes right? 😉 I will email you later 🙂

    Cute comfy yet chic! The leopard touch is just perfect to make it chic, I totally feel you, curves can make effortless chic not being that effortless but you pulled it off perfectly girl!

    Oh love the top! Non-fitted tops that are flattering is the hardest things to find but I love the stripes and drawstring combo here.

    You look so cute! And yes, having outfits that make you feel good on your non-skinny/gorg on delicious food days are essential! This one is adorable, I love the top and the fit of the denim, and love that the leopard pumps still add a bit of glam/edge to it all!

    love this on you. I know what it is like to find a top that is casual but flatters the curves. But doesn’t make you look like a potato. #balance

    I love wearing loose tops with skinny pants. I find that by having the skinny pants, it helps to “even” out the look (or so I think).

    This top is really cute, and actually looks better on than it does online.
