Too Big

Confession: These shorts are way too big on me.  This is what happens when I buy clothes without trying them on first.  It's the smallest size they carry, so I figured I was safe.  

{Top: Old Navy (on sale!), Shorts: Francesca's, Sandals: H&M (old), Necklace: F21 (similar), Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman, F21, Alex and Ani}

It's times like these when I use a belt for its intended purpose - holding up my pants.  Truth be told, I think I was just overly excited about the cuteness of these printed chambray shorts that I let my judgement slip.  So unlike me!  It won't happen again, I promise... maybe.  Happy shopping!

they don't look too big on you at ALL. Did you know that I do that too? (only pants shorts. jeans etc) I always buy them a size or half a size bigger, because i hate things tooo tight and constricting. also, if i want to have a more snug look, I can throw them in the drier. I loved the sneak peak on insta yesterday, love love love those shorts. I love how your hair always looks so perfect btw. you're always so pretty/perfect! xx

oh i hate when i buy things and they dont fit right! i trust i know my size in some stores, but sometimes it's off. in one store, once i bought a skirt and a pair of shorts. one was a size 2 the other a size 8 and they both fit?!?! fit is ANNOYING!

they look really cute on you though! it's an adorable print - and i love that bow necklace. and your bracelets and watch go perfectly as well

Alissa said...

I completely wish I had this problem!! It's ALWAYS the opposite for me, I think I will fit into them and turns out they are like two sizes too small!

Tashia said...

They may be a little big, but those shorts are still super cute! I love the pattern mixing you've got going on here.

Ali Hval said...

You know, I'm always envious of anyone who can pull of the stripes + floral combo... I can never seem to get it right! I love how you've got purple stripes and such a tiny floral print pattern though.

haha, at least the shorts aren't too small! That just means you can pig out a little more and not worry. ;)

Regardless of if they're too big or not, they still look super cute! I have a terrible habit of never trying things on and buying them anyways. 99% of the time I regret it, but there's that 1% where you get it home and it's perfect--that always makes up for it!

The shorts are SOOOO adorable! And honestly, you can't tell at all that they are too big! They look perfect. I don't ever try anything on, so I also end up with things that are too big or a wee bit small...but I always make them work, just like you did :)

Too big you say? I wouldn't have been able to tell at all if you didn't mention it. I have that problem too, I call it the Asian syndrome where even the smallest sizes are still too big. I love your colour palette today.

Even though they are big, they look adorable! I haven't bought anything floral yet and am itching to find a floral pattern I love, hopefully soon :)

PS- I'm jealous of your Old Navy tank because I tried one on and my size doesn't fit (little too busty) and if I go up a size it looks way too big in the stomach...boo!
