I’m one of those people who buys pretty much everything online. Besides the occasional thrift store haul or trip to Target, the majority of my closet was purchased online. But, as we all know, shopping online has it’s risks. Whether it’s something fitting different than you expected or a human error like ordering the wrong size, it happens! I’m being honest guys, I’ve totally ordered the wrong size shirt before. Don’t judge me.
We all know doing online returns can sometimes be more trouble than it’s worth. Return shipping can be pricey and seriously, who wants to go to the post office? Not me. I rarely do returns so when I have an item that doesn’t work for me, I have to *make* it work for me.
This particular sweatshirt from Totally Good Time was a few sizes too big - 2 sizes to be exact. I’m not one of those girls who feels cute in a plain ol’ giant sweatshirt….it just doesn’t do much for me. So I had to make it my own and decided to share these tips with you guys because it has happened to all of us. It can be a bit of a challenge, but here are some styling tips for wearing an oversized sweatshirt:
- Cut it up! - Don’t be afraid to make it your own and take the scissors to it. It can be risky but go slow and you’ll be fine. With this shirt, first I cut the waistband off, then put it on and decided I wanted to take a few more inches off. That’s the key - cut a tiny bit off, try it on, and then cut more. Don’t go too fast! If you want to wear your sweatshirt with low rise jeans and don’t want your stomach to show, put those jeans on to see how it fits before you chop too much. I also cut the bands off the wrists (plus a few inches) since the sleeves were way too long for me.
- Pair your top with fitted bottoms - Oversized tops always look great with fitted bottoms. Loose bottoms can work, but it’s certainly more tricky and can look sloppy if you’re not careful. Fitted jeans, leggings or skirts are an easy bet and balance out the oversized top nicely. I chose a faux leather pencil skirt but this outfit would look just as cute with a pair of distressed skinny jeans.
- Add accessories and statement pieces - This is another tricky way to make your outfit look pulled together and not sloppy. I chose a coordinating bag and Jeffrey Campbell heels with dogs on them because, honestly, that’s just the kind of person I am okay?! Fun accessories bring more interest to the look and give it a bit more personality so don’t hold back!
That’s it, y’all! Don’t overthink it, and make it your own.
Being pregnant with twins is one of the most awesome and exciting and indeed a blessing to the family. My reason for coming to comment here is to share my experience with Dr Anokokudo who helped me in getting pregnant. I am presently a mother of twin girls and I love my babies very much. My name is Diane and I am 36 years old. After 9 years of marriage, my husband became a brute and a bully. He dealt with me because of my infertility and a means to bear him a child. I experienced so many tribulations that I prayed to meet that person who would change my situation and that was how I came in contact with Dr Anokokudo and now I am finally a mom. My husband could not believe the day I showed him my test results of being pregnant after I contacted Dr Anokokudo and this made me very happy. He stopped his attitude and changed his behaviour. I delivered at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center Dec 23

With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Whatsapp number: +2348143757229
My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
