May 22, Head to Toe

One trick for looking slimmer is wearing the same color from head to toe. It creates a long vertical line- which in turn, makes you look thinner! Today I have chosen shades of grey.

In my before picture I have paired my grey jeans with a light grey t shirt and my black Birkenstocks. Nothing wrong with this- but honestly it’s a little dull. And since it is two different shades of grey, it doesn’t really do the trick of slimming. So, to add some interest (and a little edge to the look), I have replaced the tight grey t shirt with this cool metallic t shirt. The color is a better match for the head to toe look. This shirt drapes better (doesn’t cling to my stomach) and has a cute side slit & longer back. Little details like that add interest to the outfit. The peep toe block heel shoes also add more style.

Since it’s chilly this morning, I will throw on my pink satin bomber jacket. It also adds to the edgy look, plus keeps me warm and is cuter than a cardigan.

Gotta run, no time for links this am, my sweet sister (Kara) called and we just chatted for a bit, so I ran out of time to do the links. But honestly, I’d rather talk to my sister. 🙂 Have a great day…
