Coat: Old Navy. Top: Ann Taylor (c/o) (similar). Jeans: Current/Elliott (darker wash). Hat: ASOS (similar). Shoes: Boutique 9 (similar from Nine West). Handbag: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: Gucci.

 

Happy Monday Everyone!

 

Standing at a curvy 5’2″, I usually find that slim fitting clothing looks best on my small, shapely frame. Β I love the idea of oversized pieces, however I have a difficult time finding items that are oversized but do not overwhelm me. Β I love this Old Navy coat because it looks a little oversized, but still looks like I’m wearing my own coat, and not one borrowed from my Man. Β And, on sale for only $30, how could I pass this up?! Β I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!

      Hahahahaha, I can honestly say that a great pair of nude pumps might be my number 1 fashion essential! I wear them all the time! I can’t believe you went so long without a pair. LOL

    Yes, when you’re petite, everything looks oversized! You are wearing this coat quite well though. And I love the double stripes AND that lip color!

      Haha, you are so right! It’s hard to find clothes that fit a curvy and petite frame. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much Sarah!

    You can’t go wrong for that price! Being curvy myself I know the challenge of finding flattering “oversized” pieces – this one is great!

      Thanks so much Victoria! I agree, the price can’t be beat! πŸ™‚

    I totally know what you mean. i’m considered petite sized too and the oversized trend can literally be overwhelming. But, this coat is a great find! It looks like the perfect oversized coat! =D

      Thanks Nancy! I know, I’m not complaining about being short by any means, but it definitely can be difficult to find clothing that fits properly, especially anything that is slightly oversized. πŸ™‚

    You got an awesome deal with that coat! And you’re right, it is oversize, but still looks great πŸ™‚ I’m now considering checking old navy’s coat since I have the same issue as well!

    I honestly can’t tell you are 1. 5’2 and 2. “curvy”. Don’t worry, I mean it as the most complimentary way! I am curvy too and I always am envious at girls who can pull off those tight skinny jeans while their legs still look so slim and a mile long lol. I think this coat looks fabulous on you and I can’t believe it is an Old Navy piece!

    • Jenny

      Hahahahahaha, thank you so much! I make a conscious effort to try to wear clothes that help elongate my body and tone down my curves. It can be challenging but it’s worth the effort. πŸ™‚ I just feel so much prettier when I feel well dressed. Skinny jeans and pants are DEFINITELY a huge challenge. It has to be the perfect cut to look good on me, and I can’t tell you how many pairs I’ve tried on that look terrible!!!

    I totally understand the issue with finding oversized pieces that aren’t overpowering for small frames. I love this coat on you. It looks great with a simple outfit underneath. That lip color too!

    That’s a really great coat on you! For $30, I’d be willing to give it a shot too.

    I probably wouldn’t have thought to take a look at the coat in store, but in this post, you really make the coat look like a more expensive, higher end piece.

      Thanks so much Jackie! Hahaha, I can’t tell you how many things I’ve walked right by in stores without giving them a second glance, then I see someone wearing it (or on a blog) and it looks SO MUCH BETTER on a person than on the hanger! I definitely have to remind myself to try pieces on before I totally dismiss them. πŸ™‚

    Hi J, I ‘m not stopping by regularly to comment, but I keep a keen eye on your style. I’d be doing you an injustice not to comment here, you rock the oversized coat and colour scheme between the Cobalt Blue and Nude shoes is a winning combo!

    The cobalt blue color is lovely, and since you kept the pants slim and added the stilettos you still get that long lean effect.

    • Jenny
      February 10, 2014

      Thanks so much Ashleigh! You are so right, I think the key to wearing oversized pieces is keeping the other pieces slim fitting to balance each other out.
