Jumper Dress

 

Hiii.. This is my versatile jumper dress- It’s easy to wear and goes well with quite a bit of things. Just like a jumpsuit. 

It’s a great travel piece, especially if you enjoy dresses and skirts over pants. With this one, I like the V-Neck- although I wont wear it alone because of that- it allows to to wear many styles of tops under, and well, V- necks are quite flattering, because it elongates the body- therefore creating a taller slimmer look.. who doesn’t love that! 🙂

Tea Time & Horses

Had a little tea outing yesterday at a horse farm/garden center, absolutely beautiful. It’s a plant shop, there are stables and they also give riding lessons to kids.

It was my first time there, such a wonderful surprise. The setting was perfect, with lush greenery, lots of flowering plants and fruit trees, the horses were accessible, only reason I didn’t get real up and personal with them was because of the rain that left the ground muddy.. and well i didnt have the right shoe 🙂

It has been over the years, well-kept by owners who absolutely love what they do, and it shows.

I have had this little orange lace dress for a while now, never managed to have the opportunity to wear it. For tea i feel light and airy, lace and florals are appropriate. With my shorter dresses I prefer wearing flat shoes. The only thing I had handy,  were these yellow strappy sandals. Seeing that it was becoming colorful I decided to use my green handbag.

Dress: Dillard’s

Shoe: Old Navy

Handbag: Chanel

Clustered Pearl Earring: Dillard’s

My black versatile jumpsuit

I was soo happy when I found this jumpsuit. It’s exactly what I had in mind, for my personal style and my body type.

It’s long so good for my height.

It has no set waist band- so there’s no worry about it not sitting right.

It’s sleeveless, so I can have fun with it.

The v-neck is very flattering.

The fabric and style allow me to take it from casual to dressed up.I can wear it with flat slippers or with dressy strappy shoes. A definite for my next travel capsule wardrobe.

Black Jumpsuit

For me it was hard to find.. a flattering, well-fitting and versatile black jumpsuit. I am 5’9″ pear-shaped, and I often find jumpsuits to be odd fitting on my body type. The waist wouldn’t fit where it should, the length would be too short etc. I always do admire how it looks on others.

It’s a great travel piece because some styles can be very versatile you can take it from daytime to evening with a quick switch of shoes and accessories.With black you have a lot of fun with color.

 

Here are 3 styles:

1- Fun Jumpsuit

Striped Crop Top: Wardrobe Staple

I don’t know about you.. but striped tops have become one of my  wardrobe staples… Its fun and looks very crisp and cool. Especially for summer times. It goes well with different colors, and I personally would wear them with only high wasted bottoms.

This is just one example- but I also love a nice fitting long sleeved stripe as well, that get be tucked in, and or under a blazer.

With this particular cropped style- because the neckline is high, it makes accessorizing so much easier- as it really doesn’t need a necklace. So this makes for a great travel piece as well.

Here I have paired it with : Black,Green & Teal.

Hello everyone ..

One of my new favorite pants are these green mid wasted sashed pants.

They are flattering on almost all body types- because of the mid-waist. It smooths out your lower body, removing any waist band cutting, that usually occurs around the waist/hip area, creating bulging. Its also a great to not have to worry about bending over to pick things up etc. risking exposure. ha!

I have done 2 looks here- one with a great splash of red and the other without. I think that red goes with everything- Notice how it brightens up my face?

This outfit has gone from casual to stylish with just the one addition. Have fun fashionistas!

Shopping list:

Pants- Express.com

Top: Body suit-material girl- from the proud peacock tt

Necklace: Francesca’s

Wedding Guest Outfit – Guidelines

Hello,

One of the challenges my clients face, is figuring out what they should wear to a wedding. They are often times unsure, they don’t want to be over or under dressed.

Here are some things to take into consideration:

  1. The location of the wedding
    1. Is it outdoor/indoor etc. In a fancy hall or garden?
    2. The general expected temperature.
    3. What type of floor will you be standing on? Grass? Tile?
  2. What does the invitation look like? That can sometimes offer great insight as to the general “fanciness” of the wedding. Some invitations may even suggest a dress code.
  3. Is it a traditional wedding as you are accustomed to? Or something new?
    1. If its a different culture- you are generally not expected to wear what’s customary – however- if you’re up for it, its a great opportunity to experience something new, and your hosts would love that.
    2. Try as best as you can to be courteous by following some of the general guidelines- so if it’s lets say a wedding in a mosque or temple- keep your general look as respectful as possible. A great way to get 2 looks- one for the religious part and one for the party part, is to simply wear a shawl or shrug over your outfit, if you are unsure.
    3. DO NOT WEAR WHITE – lets not compete with the bride- 🙂
    4. Dress appropriately for the location and general setting- for example a summer wedding vs a winter wedding. A fancy indoor hall vs a rustic country barn.
    5. If it’s a garden wedding, don’t wear pointy heals, wedges are the safer bet.
    6. Lastly- in trying to keep with a minimalist wardrobe- If you are buying something new- make sure it’s versatile enough that you can wear it more than just once.

Here are some great versatile options that would suit almost every wedding style.
