Every Year there always seems to be an "It" shape that becomes the new template for most designers to create their masterful collections from and this year was no different.  Let me introduce you to this years shape, dun dun duuun.... over sized and boxy.  This ever so versatile shape is everywhere,  Coats, tops. Jackets and even dresses are now being made to fit looser and boxier.  To the  fashion laymen, it may appear as if people   are wearing hand me downs that are two sizes too big, but that's actually the current style and look they are going for.  I mean, when you think about it, it makes since.  These larger pieces create and optical illusion, making you look smaller and of course skinnier.  Last year we were given a little hint as to this "boxy rebellion" with the introduction of the cocoon coats and before that there were the still hot, boyfriend jeans.  This year, bigger is definitely better.  Personally, I am all about this style.  I am petite or a nugget as some say;-) so bigger is not that hard for me to pull off.  Not to mention the comfort factor.  Lastly, what women doesn't want to look skinnier.  So now, as fall and winter are upon us, I suggest you pick up a boxy coat to add to your wardrobe.  Look for a big roomy fit but not a more than 2 sizes too big.  Remember, keep it tailored to your particular body type.  If the coat is meant to hit your thighs,  make sure it doesn't end at your knees.  Sleeves as well need to be the correct length.  There is a difference between boxy and way to big. Prepare to say Au revoir to body con and Bonjour boxy!!!

   It's always nice to sneak away from the hectic everyday grind and actually sit back, relax and breathe life in. I love love beach vacays, but like most good things, they always seem to fly by and come to an end way to soon.  Here are a few pics of our trip to the beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC, I managed to sneak in.  Most of the time, I end up dressing for style rather than comfort but since I was on vacation I opted for the comfy route.  I am loving the fact that birkys are back in style, being that they are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own and since lots of walking was on the days agenda.  I also happen to be quite overall obsessed so these shortalls were a no brainer.  In order to add a little sexiness, I chose this sporty cropped top that seems a bit more like a sports bra and shows just the right amount of skin. And to add that punkish 90s vibe, I finished it off with a plaid blouse tied around the waist.
