Okay don't hate me for wearing stripes on stripes ... I was feeling it. Mind you that just when we thought denim on denim would be dead and gone I am seeing it everywhere!
My fashion tips:
Don't match too much. I remember being so bound to matching: earrings to necklace/belt to shoes not to mention color dilemmas. It is quite liberating to not match at all.
Dress to flatter your body type. Last year I gained 50 lbs with the pregnancy of my daughter Eden...Let me tell you it did not instantly melt away the way I hoped. I was used to being pretty small and I had to learn how to dress my new figure. The cool thing is before I had my baby I had a cute shape but, like most women, I found flaws to gripe about. NOTHING has made me love my body more than going through pregnancy and the awkward stages afterward. I developed a new found respect and love for my body and the wonderful creation that it is. I want to show it love no matter where I fall between size 2 and size 10.
Only buy things you love. It is so much easier to throw outfits together that way! Don't just jump at every deal you see. If it's 3 dollars and you won't really wear it, don't buy it.
