I still get Stitch Fix (<- affiliate link!) deliveries on the regular in an attempt to expand my wardrobe beyond athletic shorts and tank tops. I’m a work in progress. Anyway, lately I’ve realized that things I think look flattering on me, don’t appear that way in photos, which has further confirmed my belief that I really don’t know anything about how to dress for my body type (short and pear-shaped- and I mean that in a very kind way).
So in that light, I wanted to enlist your feedback on my latest fix on what I should keep and return, so picture this as a little…
Ok, here we go.
Quick disclaimer: I do not have time to style my hair, much less an outfit (which perhaps I should keep in mind while choosing what to keep). So jewelry or shoe suggestions are welcome too. In the meantime I threw on my new favorite wedges and called it a day. I had limited photography time with my little people running around after all. Oh, and thanks for indulging my completely self-serving advice-searching post!
#1 Saxby Scoop Neck Top by Loveappella- $54.00
Realistically speaking, I should have flat sandals on with this top and probably a pair of fitted dark jeans. I don’t think this is considered high fashion, however it is something I can totally see myself throwing on for a regular weekday while running around with the girls. And if I’m being honest, this is pretty much my casual style- comfortable, easy, can wear a regular bra.
#2 Market & Spruce Colibri Sleeveless Top – $44
I really wanted to like this one. The polka dots were cute and it was comfortable, but… is it a shirt? or a dress? because my gosh it is longggg. I couldn’t tuck in all that fabric so I tried a belt on but…
#3 Loveappella Montel Dress – $78
#4 Level 99 Robbie Jogger Pant – $88
I mean…. ?! I put these on and Hailey asked why I was wearing boys pants. Ha. Totally not flattering, right? I didn’t have clue what to do with them. I wouldn’t even know how to start styling something like this.
…and let’s be honest, $88?
#5 Skies are Blue Roe V Neck Top – $44
This one I liked. I love the colors and the pattern. I felt good in it. I didn’t think it was too long for my frame and liked that it was a little flowy. My favorite from the bunch for sure.
So there we go. My fashion photography and model skills are impressive, I know, but try to look past that. I’m open to tips on what styles or looks would work on my body type. I love feeling pulled together but mostly need clothes that can be thrown on quickly and comfortably while I play with my kiddos.

Ok (deep breath)… be kind… what do you think?
