The one style rule I've learned as I've grown is that if one piece is fitted, the other should be loose fitting or structured. Which brings us to today's look. I'm obsessed with this French Connection top, mostly because it's leather (faux), but I'm incredibly attracted to the boxiness of it as well. These skinny jeans really accentuate the shape of it.

Speaking of shape, not only am I out of it, but mine has really changed since having a baby. I'm just a tad bit more top heavy and leaner in my waist and legs. I've always been petite, but with a somewhat athletic build. I feel like I shrunk - which is obnoxious to hear from someone who was pregnant 8 months ago - but it's been a challenge dressing for my new shape and not look frail. I've really had to pay attention to proportions and fit more than usual. I think it's served me well though.

I've never liked the way I dressed more than I do now.
