Column Dressing for Work and Play

Column Dressing for Work and Play

I’ve shared before the struggles of being a pear shaped girl. It is NOT easy! I’ll fall in love with a cute outfit in a store, try it on, then face the sad truth that my body is just not made to wear certain styles. I am NOT model thin. I’m a real woman, with real curves and aging body issues. But I’ve had to work with what the Lord gave me for a few years now, and I’ve learned a few tricks. My favorite is column dressing.

My August Stitch Fix for Fall Y’all!

My August Stitch Fix for Fall Y’all!

Happy September!

I love September. So many good things to be thankful for. My son was born in September – 30 – yes 30- years ago. I can’t even believe I’m old enough to have a 30 year old son. And he’s my youngest! Yikes! I’m overjoyed this year, because he and his wife are expecting their first child, a son. It’s so amazing that my baby is having a baby!  Also, my daughter and her hubs will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary in September. Another milestone, and encouragement that life goes on.

September also brings us cooler temps, and the realization that fall is right around the corner! It’s time to start working on those fall wardrobes, ladies! Did you read my Fall Workwear Refresh post? I shared the fall color palette with Erin, my Stitch Fix stylist, and asked her to surprise me with new pieces for my wardrobe using that color palette. And she knocked it out of the ballpark! As you view my reveal, pay attention to how well she worked those colors into this Fix. Keep reading for my Stitch Fix reveal!

Dressing the Pear Shaped (over 50) Woman

Dressing the Pear Shaped (over 50) Woman

 

Hi. My name’s Andy and I’m a pear. A big ole’ pear. Pear body type that is. As my daddy used to say I’m big at the little and bottom at the top. The body type is also called a triangle, but I prefer pear, because, you know, it’s food. And I love food.
My shoulders are narrow, my waist is defined, and jeans usually “gap” at the waist, and I tend to accumulate weight in my hips and thighs. And according to my research, I share my pearness with celebrities like J-Lo, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian. (giggle)
If you’re in the same fruit bowl as I am, keep on reading for my style tips and tricks for dressing the vibrant ripe pear!
