Size ((doesn't)) matter!

Ok, yes, sometimes size DOES matter!
But, what I am here to talk to you about today is clothing sizes.
Sure, sometimes thinking about going up a size can turn us in to a panic... 
"But I'm always a medium!?!?!"
What I want to encourage you to do though is experiment with different sizes to achieve different fits and looks!
Going up in a size may create a more, comfy, over-sized look that can easily change the vibe of the shirt.... like making it more casual for instance.
I love the comfy-chic look, it's pretty much my go-to! As long as it's comfy yet cute... I am in!
Choosing a different size can help you to achieve this too!
Also, sometimes different brands go by different sizing guidelines. So it's helpful to try a couple different sizes on to choose from, depending on the look you are going for!

I have a few examples to show you...
(and for reference, I am pretty consistently a size small, occasionally a medium)

Top #1

 This tag on this top actually says XL! Now, normally I would have saw that and totally walked away and left it there... BUT, I was like hmm.. this may be really cute still!! And, a super comfy over-sized fit! That is exactly what it turned out to be! I love it! Best part--- I got it on the clearance rack!

Top #2

Disclaimer: I am sucker for ANYTHING stripes! 
I own WAY too many striped tops! 
What I love about this one though is that it fits looser and gives the shirt this great 
casual look and feel!
The tag on this one is size L.
Again, best part--- clearance rack find!

Top #3

Another disclaimer: I LOVE every top that has some kind of lace accent!
It just really just adds something to the shirt!
This was again one of those shirts that I would have normally looked at the tag and thought... "Man, if only it was in my size". I decided to give it a try and I again, love the fit!
Tag is size L.
And, you may start to notice a theme... clearance rack find yet again!!!

So, you see... just because a top may have a larger sized label than you would normally grab, don't be afraid to try it out! Everything looks different on YOU than on the rack anyway!
It all just depends on the fit and look you are going for! :)
And, sometimes trying a larger size can save you some money too! (i.e. the clearance rack! ;))

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me! I would love to answer them for you!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. It's so crazy how different sizing can be between different brands! I think people really need to stop thinking of themselves as a specific size and just go by the way the piece fits. You definitely show you can find really cute things in different sizes! I love all of these looks!
