The 5 Body Types & How To Dress Them

I’m so excited to be home for a little while on a Saturday. I have been doing some more decorating and some online shopping.

Wayne and I are headed to Shaker Village for dinner. It’s very festive there this time of year and we live close by so we thought we’d go enjoy it.

I’ve been getting some emails on body types. Last January, I wrote about 5 different body types. It’s important to know your body type so when you go shopping you know what styles will look best on you.

Here are the 5 body types that most women fall in to:

The Hourglass body type

The Pear body type

The Banana body type

The Apple body type

The Inverted Triangle body type

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and take some time to enjoy the season. It goes by so fast!

Favorite Fashion PINS Friday

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a while since I did a Favorite Fashion PINS Friday so I thought I’d share some PINS with you. Pinterest is my favorite way to get outfit ideas.

If I have an outfit I want to style, I type it in the search bar on Pinterest and voila! I usually find lots of ideas.

Anyway here’s some of my favorite PINS.

You know I’m loving fair isle sweaters and I love this one.

This vest is everywhere!

Plaid scarf, enough said.

I’m huge fan of basic wardrobe pieces. If you have them, you always have something to wear.

I don’t want to forget to add color during these dreary winter months. I love this pop of color!

I looked everywhere this fall for a vest like this and never found one. I have a military jacket, but I like the vest too.

I’m keeping it pretty short and sweet today. We have lots of things to get done this weekend. It’s hard to believe how quickly the month is flying by!

Do you have a busy weekend planned? Or do you get to stay home and watch some Christmas movies?

What To Wear On Christmas Day

Welcome to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today it’s What To Wear On Christmas Day.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!
Aww Christmas Day. I had to laugh a little because if I didn’t have my family over for Christmas dinner, I would stay in my pajamas all day!

I don’t know about you all but by the time Christmas gets here, I’m tired.

ca66872c20d60a5d598fd468de574145
Actually, I’m thankful I have my family over for Christmas dinner. Mom and Dad always had Christmas dinner at their house but since Mom passed away, I’ve had it at my house.

I never realized how much my Mom did at Christmas until she was gone. It’s funny how that happens. I treasure every Chritmas I had with her!

Now, What to Wear On Christmas Day!

I knew what I wanted to wear, I’ve seen these fair isle sweaters quite a bit and I thought it would be perfect for Christmas day.

What To Wear On Christmas Day

It’s a comfortable sweater which is always good but it’s also kind of festive looking.

Beauty For the Heart~~“You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. In the meantime don’t be foolish or naive. But don’t despair either. With God’s help you will get through this.

You, who are torn between families? You, who are still grieving the loss of a precious friend, your loved family member? You, who are wondering if in this season of miracles yours may have been lost?

Is it possible that God is using the trials of this season to strengthen you? I think so.” -Max Lucado

Have a blessed day!

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!

It’s been a little while since I did a Stitch Fix Review on my blog so I thought I’d share my last fix with you.

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!

Rarely do I ever keep the entire box but this last one was fabulous. I usually keep 2 to 3 items but Margaret (my stylist) knocked it out of the park on this one.

Earlier in the year I went to San Francisco and visited the Stitch Fix headquarters. It was so much fun!! They told us that on average, women keep two items from their Stitch Fix box. If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off the total price.

Here is what I received in this box.

  •  Olive & Oak, Delbert Textured Geo Knit Sweater

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!

I wore this vest on Thanksgiving Day and I absolutely love it. I had planned on wearing the fur vest I got at Target but when I got this one I decided to wear it. My daughter wore the one from Target.

  • Skies are Blue, Emira Faux Fur Collar Knit Vest

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!
Oh I’m such a fan of infinity scarves and this brown one is perfect for cold winter weather.

  • Look by M, Torrey Twist Cable Knit Infinity Scarf

  • Andrew Marc, Emmet Classic Peacoat

It has leather detailing which gives a modern look to a classic coat.

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!

Okay I wasn’t sure about this one but I absolutely love the feminine look of this dress. I thought it looked very Jackie Kennedy Onassis. The dress not me. :-) I’m not sure where I’ll wear this dress but if I need something dressy, I have it!!

  • M Coconinno, Ara Sleeveless Tie Waist Floral Print Dress

Stitch Fix Review-I Kept It All!

What do you think about these items in my latest fix?

FYI: The olive rain coat, maroon skinny jeans and the navy and gold scarf are all from previous Stitch Fix boxes.

Do you know someone who would love to try Stitch Fix? They now have gift cards! Of maybe you just want to try it yourself, then go here.

What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch

Welcome to our 12 Days of Holiday Outfits! Today it’s What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch.

12 Days Of Holiday Outfits and More!
I absolutely love a holiday brunch. Most brunches that I have attended are just for the ladies and of course the food is always delicious. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it right now!

What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch

The outfits can be casual or dressy but I like to dress up a bit. I love the look of a white collared blouse with a blingy necklace and this one from LOFT is perfect.

What To Wear To A Holiday Brunch

Two things I had going on in these pictures, sun popping out, which is why I’m squinting and of course the wind that kept blowing my hair in my face. Fun times!

There is none like Me.” -Beth Moore

Have a blessed day!
