Truth be told, I love the "boyfriend" look. From denim, to shirts, to blazers, the over-sized look really speaks to me. Growing up, I always bought everything a size (or two) too large. I can specifically remember a conversation I had with one of my college mentors and her telling me that I needed to start buying clothes that were my size. When I argued that EVERYONE wore their tee shirts too big, she was quick to say, well you don't need to be everyone. After that, I slowly started to size down, and it was amazing how much smaller I really needed to buy! But with that being said, I love that the over-sized boyfriend look is a thing now because I can wear over-sized items with them still "fitting" me correctly. And yes, I guess everyone is doing it now, but I have been trying to wear clothes that don't fit for a while. Just saying.
The minute I saw this over-sized Free People blazer, I knew I wanted it. First, it's over-sized. And second, I love the colors. The blush is the perfect shade and I love how the stripes look. This blazer is fun to dress up and down, but I love how easy it is to throw on with a pair of jeans, or even trouser shorts. Truthfully, I have been living in this blazer (it is just so easy!) and I can't imagine that is going to stop any time soon!
