OOTD: Free flowin'.

If there is one style I love love love, it has to be the easy breezy cotton/jersey look. Granted, I think my style incorporates a lot of femininity and sometimes even edginess, but I'm always most comfortable in a loose top and leggings. I think that's why I fell pretty hard for the Seventy Two Changes top at Nordstrom's Anniversary sale. Its also great because it can be as easily worn now as it will be in the fall months. It may not be to everyone's liking (my friend's mother saw it on my blog and said, "What is that?!", hehe) but as long as you're not wearing it with some loose pants or sweats, it really looks adorable. Case in point: ---->

(Batwings!!)

Top: Seventy Two Changes boxy tee
Shorts: F21
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: Flavanilla (Etsy shop) Love necklace

There is a good reason this thing is called the boxy tee, and you can best see why in the last photo: it's literally in the shape of a square with holes in it for arms to pop out. The pockets just drape. The thing that really makes it has to be the little metallic stud details that add a little fun and make it more than just a sweatshirt-type top. This will look super cute with some leggings and booties for sure-- it even looks cute off the shoulders.

Well... I like it, anyway.  :)  Have a great Monday, lovies!

(and look, Ma, I'm finally getting a tan! Zoiks!)

  5. I think if you have the figure to wear a top like that and make it look awesome, you should do it! It really does look great with the shorts to balance everything out.

    I love the top!!! I took your advice and exchanged one of the cardigans for the drapey sweater and I LOVE it. I also take back what I said about that Nick & Mo jacket - after I read about how bad everyone wanted to try it on, I decided to try it on, and it's not so bad! It's a pretty flattering cut and so comfy! The fabric and frayed ruffles still aren't for me, but I don't think it looks cheap anymore. I actually thought it looked pretty nice. :) Of course, it's sold out online right now, but the lady at the store said they may add more sizes before the sale is over.
