June 12, Summer’s Here

It’s going to be another hot day here in the PNW, so for my OOTD I have chosen denim shorts and this cute bright orange top.

Looking at the before photos, the denim shorts on the left are not flattering. They are too tight- and my legs look like sausages. I hate the way the fabric clings to my curvy hips, plus this is uncomfortable. The shorts on the right are a better option for me. The loose, flowy fabric fits better- and the fact that they aren’t skin tight actually makes my legs look thinner. By tucking in the top and adding cute snakeskin sandals & an armful of colorful bracelets, I have created a super casual, super summery look.

May 8th, Construction Worker

 I have always steered clear of pairing these two colors together (army green and orange) for fear of looking like a construction worker.

I’m not sure why?! I actually think these colors compliment each other- and this top is such a fun, bright spring color- who can resist?

On the right I’m showing my old cargos- paired with this plaid shirt. The old cargos were too loose, too baggy and not flattering.

The plaid shirt is ok- but isn’t working here.

The skinny cargos, the bright, solid top and the fun leopard flats make for a more polished and put together look.
