I tweed, do you tweed?

Top:  Lace Affair (sold out!) (Similar) /  Skirt:  Ann Taylor, thrifted (Similar and oh-so-pretty) /  Shoes:  XAppeal  (Similar)

Here's what it's like to be a pear-shaped person:

You buy a top in a small because you know your top half is a small.  You also realize that the item is final sale.

You mistakenly assume that the bottom of it is either stretchy or not so stretchy, but stretchy enough that it will look good.

It arrives in the mail.

You eagerly try it on.  You try to straighten it out down past your hips.

And it doesn't.  Budge.

And now you do the reasonable thing.  You tuck it into a skirt and call it a day.

You also forget to iron your tweed skirt and don't realize it's wrinkly until you look at the pictures.

The end.


  1. Ohhh I really love that top, it's beautiful. I hate when shirts are tight at the bottom! It looks great tucked in though, and I wouldn't have noticed your skirt was wrinkled until you said something :D

    Have a great Wednesday!

    1. Thanks :)

      And a great Wednesday to you, too!

  2. Can I just say that I feel your pain. I don't know what shape I am exactly, but while I don't have a whole lot going on up top, I've got booty and hips to spare I tell ya what! And I always take my outfit photos at the end of the day after sitting on and wrinkling up my clothes, so no wrinkle judgement here.

    I really like that pencil skirt on you!
