6 Styles for Each Body Type

This week we are talking about the right outfits to dress each body type. Now that you know your body shape, let's see what you should be wearing to best flatter your figure :)

It is entirely possible that you will match with the body type & not the style of clothes I put -- that is completely fine. I am not saying if you are an rectangle shape you have to dress so colorfully - you can wear similar shapes and all black. This is just an inspiration board for the type of silhouettes you should be wearing, not the exact style!

8 Tips for Dressing for Each Body Type

This week we are focusing on how to dress for your body type. A large part of feeling insecure in your outfit centers around these thoughts: I feel fat. I look chubby. I hate my love handles. So I will just throw on something oversized, that I do not feel good it but covers my body. Sound familiar?

We are here to stop that, immediately. Reality is, we are stuck to the bodies we have until we hit the gym every day for months & stop eating bread. So until that happens, we want you to learn how to love what you have.

What to wear on a coffee date

Coffee dates are the dinner dates for our generation. Things just aren't like they used to be, and I think this is one way that we wish things hadn't changed! Rarely do you meet someone who will pick you up at your front door and formally ask you out on a date. These days, it's all texting, DMs, meet me here, etc. And coffee dates. 

I recently was in an Uber Pool with a couple on their first date, and I got to know WAY too much about them in our journey (her ex-man has mom issues, more intense than her own, for example!). 

So, what to wear on a coffee date! You don't want to be too dressed up or provocative, but not too casual. And let's be honest, you want to make jaws drop. As we all do :)

Style for moms | #MomLife

I definitely got my love for fashion & style from my mom. She was the hottest & the coolest. When I was younger, we would go shopping almost every day after school. She had the coolest clothes & I was always trying to borrow them. Looking back, I have a feeling people probably looked at her as a super cool mom. Moms are superheros with or without style, we all know this. But when you are at the grocery store and see a mom with a toddler and heels on, you know in your head you are like -- what is my excuse? She has a child & is killing me, I need to step my game up!!

One thing you should know right away- I wear black 99% of the time. 

My reasons for this are:

It is the most flattering color.
