JOGGERS & JEAN JACKETS


CASUAL STYLE & FIT


I'm the queen of comfort that looks cute! These linen joggers are not only extremely comfortable but also a versatile piece. You can dress them up or down! Most importantly.....they are ultra slimming. I'm 145 pounds in the picture above and have 20 pounds to drop from just delivering my son. You can hardly tell! Wearing clothing that hits you in all the right places is key. It's been almost three weeks since these were shot and I have not lost one pound. I have been focusing on eating healthy and exercising but hormones are king! When my body is ready I will start shedding the weight, but for now I'm paying extra close attention to how my clothing fits. 

SLIMMING TIPS

-CREATE A WAIST: Sometimes your body can get lost in oversized tops. Unless you are at your happy weight this can make you look larger instead of smaller. Try tucking in a small area of the top in the front to create a waist. 

-COVER AREAS YOU ARE SELF CONSCIOUS ABOUT AND EXPOSE AREAS YOU ARE PROUD OF: I'm not loving my lower stomach area, upper thighs, and upper arms right now but it's getting hot so I needed to get creative. I chose joggers because they sit above my lower stomach and hit me in all the right places. To cover my upper arms I threw on a jean jacket that is just sitting over my outfit. 

-FIT IS KEY: Where clothing sits on your body can make all the difference in the world. Pants that are loose throughout the leg and tight at the ankle have an ultra slimming effect. I'll be living in this linen pair all summer long.

EVERYTHING WHITE


EVERYTHING WHITE & SUBTLE TOUCHES OF RED AND BLUE


We had a wonderful weekend kicking the summer off with a beach weekend out east! This look came in handy. It's perfect for May & early June when the weather is still transitioning into summer and the nights are very chilly. 

Now onto the color. You can find me in all white at least 80 percent of the summer, I mean even our stroller is white! Though I do love an all white look, I still wanted touches of color. I love the subtleness of the red and blue of  both Charlie's sweater and the towel. I also just want to point out, in the photo above the towel is draped on the back of the bassinet not over the bassinet. Even if you are not directly wearing something, anything that is going to be close by counts as part of your outfit in my book. Two things that will always be close by Charlie and Ford :) 

You can find:

MY TOP, HERE It's an over sized linen boyfriend top that I decided to tie 

MY PANTS, HERE They are Girlfriend Chinos with Eyelet Patch Detail

MY SHOES, HERE Lemon Platform Smoking Slippers. You will get tons of compliments!
