I always try the whole I’m-not-really-trying oversized-sweater-and-maxi-skirt look that so many fabulous bloggers can pull off with ease, but the perfectionist (and more curvy figure) in me can’t do it. I have to add a belt, fur and well… a really big hat (which I got at Target on sale for $5). So here you have it – the Lacey version of the oversized sweater and maxi skirt look. Not so much I’m-not-really-trying but more… I like fur and a big hat.

HAHA I totally know what you mean abt “that look” but the belted sweater turned out really cute & flattering! My problem with maxis is that they’re never long enough unless I sag them which lets face it doesn’t look good lol. Happy Tuesday :)

I’m totally wearing a navy maxi with a belted cream sweater today. Random…anyway, I’m with you on being more on the curvy side, but it’s fun to make the look work for our body type!

Ohmygosh. I LOVE this. Must imitate immediately.

PS — This is slightly off-topic, but I have to ask:
I’m completely obsessed with this Zara bag, and I FINALLY snagged one from a nearby store, but the lining is kind of driving me insane. It keeps falling off/down, and I can’t decide whether I should try to secure it in some way, use the bag without the lining, or take it back. Does the lining in your bag ever fall down? Did I just get a lemon?

Thank you!

…and yes. That does happen to mine all the time. I have actually been asking myself the same question. Lately, I have been just dealing with it. :-/
