Summer Dressing for my Body Type

Lately, I have been trying to explore fashion a little bit.  I am definitely far from fashionable, but I think I have my own little style I like to wear.  I've noticed what looks best on my body type is looser fitting shirts - so I have taken a liking to many of them.  And of course, I rarely leave the house with out a necklace.  Statement necklaces are one of my favorite things!  High waisted skirts, pants, and shorts are also best for my body type.  The low-rise fashion phase never looked right on me.  Also, super short shorts aren't my friend.

Here are a few outfits I put together.  I would probably wear any of them.  Putting these together helps me figure out what I have in my own closet to wear.
I think any of these would be nice for a casual summer day.

Oh I have such a hard time with fashion. I've tried to be more aware of what works for my body and what doesn't, but I'm still so far away from finding my clothing "niche". I love your style though; easy, simple, and most important: COMFY!

Love them all Trace and each one looks like you. Personally, I think you have a wonderful sense of fashion. And you have the BEST collection of necklaces. :)

Shelley said...

You have great taste! By the way, I just bought my first bulky necklace because of you. You should be flattered, lol!

I love all of your picks! I am on the hunt for a pair of white jeans, but have found a good pair that fits me well is very hard to find...

I love the outfits you picked out. I think it's hard for me to buy clothes since I'm only 5'3''. It's easy to look even shorter than that (especially in the winter, when I like to wear long coats and boots), so I always try to get a good look in the mirror to see if the proportions are good. I finally found a maxi dress that doesn't look too big on me, but guess what... I have to hem it hahaha :)

Very cute! I feel like I've been exploring what looks good on my body type lately, too. I used to think I HATED cap sleeves, but lately, I'm okay with them. Isn't it weird how your body..and your perception thereof..changes over time? I've fully decided that shorter shorts look better on me.. not eek! short, but shorter. I tried the whole mid-length thing and looked ridiculous. I tried it b/c I was liek "I'm 30. I shouldn't wear short shorts." And then I realized it doesnt freaking matter and I was being silly.

And I totally got a really cute statement necklace in Dallas last weekend and thought of you. It's nothing special-just white beads, but I almost tweeted a photo at you. :)

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Love these! They are totally "you"!
There aren't many of us (over the age of 18) who are super-close friends with short-shorts! haha! :) Luckily there are soooo many styles to choose from…for every body type!
