Taking My Own Fashion Advice

I have been loving the maxi skirt and long dresses this spring.  It allows me to wear a skirt or dress {like I love} while still adding just a bit of warmth without leggings or tights.

I went out into our backyard to take a photo of the first outfit, only to find that the outfit was not working as well as I thought.

So I decided to take my own fashion advice.

I tucked my shirt in and hiked up my skirt a few inches...to create a defined waist line.

And I picked out a different sweater that cut better in the front.

I realized for a short girl, long skirts and dresses are not as flattering as shorter ones...but since I insist on pulling off the maxi skirt look, I needed to at least pair it with the right pieces to make it more flattering.

It is tempting to go down that dark road of judging how our outfit looks based on all the things we dislike about our body...when in fact we might just be wearing the wrong thing for our body type!

Let's not settle for okay outfits...when we can be enjoying better ones!

If you do not know where to start in dressing for your body type, I highly recommend the book: The Science of Sexy: Dress to Fit Your Unique Figure with the Style System that Works for Every Shape and Size
