Finding my summer style
It is getting a lot hotter and I am not a summer person at the best of times. I have never really liked my legs so avoid wearing shorts.
I like maxi dresses but also feel swamped in them.
I have an hourglass shape and do love my body and am pretty happy with my size. I am toning up more and learning to accept and be happy with my almost glowing, white skin.
This weekend I plan on shopping for a bit of a summer wardrobe. I need practical items, but want them to be cute. The middle dress in the picture is something I would wear for school pick up and as a day outfit. It's cute, not too dressy and I won't look like I just rolled out of bed.
Ok, I don't normally look like I rolled out of bed, but jeans and a tee is basically what I wear every day. I tell myself it is because I have active kids (aged 3 and 5), which is true and I 'only' go to speech therapy, school and doing the groceries etc most days, you know, mum stuff.
I am sick of my 'mum uniform' though. I know what I like and am just going to start wearing it. It's funny though because I love a mix of real surfer chic, other days more classic/business style, but I also love the 1950's pin up look.
Since I have the business chic clothes pretty much down pat, I am now going to focus on the other aspects I want to have in my wardrobe.
How did you find your style?
