Oversized Everything

Oversized Everything

 

I don’t know about you, but suddenly everything in my closet is somehow feeling a bit too snug.

Skinny jeans? No thanks. Sleek sheaths? Pass. Leather leggings? Errm, no. Maybe it’s the every-other-day occasional summer soft-serve talking, but I’m all about oversized everything for Fall.  Comfortable. Chic. Cozy 2.0.

Are you into this aesthetic?

InstaFashion: My Week In Photos

Behold, another week in Instafashion! Truth be told, until I started capturing my daily looks on camera, I had no idea of my obvious penchant for prints! Maybe I should leave some for the rest of Toronto, eh? Even my sneakers are loaded! Time to balance out with a few solids. #unlikely…;)

Denim…and a print.

Let me introduce you to my giant fivehead…and another print!

I’ve been a bad blogger. The time I usually devout to creating content has somehow been overshadowed by squeezing out the last few weeks of summer (and the allure of my badminton rackets…) #majorgeek. I promise to get back on track this week, Fashaloonies! In the meantime, here is my week in InstaFashion!

 Have a fabulous weekend! xx

Bright pants are my calling card. Still loving this silk tie-dye pair from Zara.

 Loving my destroyed denim. Ripped torn in Zara.

 

Ok, so it’s pretty obvious the My Style series on FatFreeFashion has been seriously neglected. Arranging the tripod outside my building or asking my Hubster to take a few pics of me everyday isn’t something that’s easily accomplished, so I’ve resorted to the next best method: Instagram!

Snapping a few #fromwhereIstand and #ootd pics is foolproof (and actually pretty fun!) so all of my outfit shots are there. If you’d like to join me, check out FatFreeFashion on Instagram. If you’re craving another slice of style inspo, but aren’t into Instagram, I’ll be sharing my looks here as a weekly round-up.

Have a great week, Fashaloonies! x 

Perfect Unisex Pieces

Perfect Unisex Pieces

 

I do all of the clothing shopping for my husband, and it really is a double-edged sword. The plus side? Man, do I ever love shopping his closet. The downside? Because I love menswear-inspired pieces, we often find ourselves twinning, which is super cute on the 70+ set, but pretty cringeworthy on us. BUT, I think the upsides far outweigh the downsides, so I’ll continue to flex my fashion authority over him, and he’ll continue to look as handsome as ever (win-win!).

Below are my favourite unisex fashion pieces:

Gold RayBan Aviators: I borrow his pair so often I should really just buy my own, but because they go with everything, that would ensure us twinning 100% of the time.   I’ll stick to borrowing!

Leather Weekender: The perfect travel bag. We can often get away with one wheelie carry-on and this bad boy for weekend trips. Love this bag!

Denim Jacket: My guy doesn’t own a denim jacket (bona-fide leather lover), but if he did, I would wear this oversized jacket with everything.

Bow Tie: How cute is this pug bow tie? Love a little bow with a femme collared shirt.

Straw Fedora: Is it just me, or do men in general take much better care of their hats? My straw hats last approximately one season before accidentally crush them in a beach bag, or an overstuffed suitcase. Oops. Good thing I have his for an emergency back-up!

Black Leather Watch: A timeless black leather strap watch is perfect for him or you. Christmas gift?!

Fisherman’s Knit: Is there anything better than a chunky knit on a freezing cold winter day? My favourite classic sweater.

Breton Shirt: A baggy breton paired with slouchy trousers, cinched with a brown leather belt. Chic. Chic. Chic.

Do you love borrowing from the boys? What are your favourites? 

 

 

 

How To Wear Daytime Sequins

Daytime Sequins- Faded Denim

 

Daytime sequins are a fabulous thing. They brighten up a mundane 9-5 wardrobe, make a regular day feel sort of special, and let’s face it- give our colleagues something to chirp about at the water cooler. What’s not to love?

These are my three favourite ways to incorporate a little sparkle in a daytime look. What are yours?

 

Daytime Sequin- Oxford
