Steve Madden Wedges, Ted Baker Peplum, Steven by Steve Madden Wedges

Just a snapshot of a few things i’ve purchased recently. If you can’t tell, i’m looking for a pair of my new favorite (comfortable) summer wedges and will not rest until I find them…If you all have recommendations for a gold, wedge sandal that is slightly dressier, i’m also looking for a pair of those for an upcoming wedding. Thanks a bunch!

On another note, that peplum top in the middle has become my single. favorite. clothing item. It fits like a dream, and is so flattering. Full outfit post coming soon. Get ready, it’s a stunner.

Flattering, Inexpensive White Jeans

Old Navy Sweetheart SkinnyOld Navy Sweetheart Bootcut, DKNY Soho Skinny

White jeans are something i’ve only briefly discussed on this blog, and generally in the vein of “these looks terrible!” But recently i’ve been itching for a pair of flattering crisp white jeans to wear with floral tops in Spring, comfy cashmere sweaters and flats running around the city, and nights by the fire on the beach.

The Old Navy sweetheart skinny has been said to be flattering on curvy girls and would look great with sandals or flats. The sweetheart bootcut also fits those with curves and the slightly flared leg is always a great idea to balance out hips. Finally, the DKNY skinny attracted me as a pegged jean option and the high waist also adds some interest and tummy control. All under $60 and with great reviews, I don’t think it’s possible to go wrong with any of them.

Let me know if you have found some white jeans you love and i’ll be sure to keep you posted on which one I choose!

Reader Styling: Tropical Vacation

Summer Styling

Kate Spade earrings, Sigerson Morrison wedges, LOFT dress (i own last years, see it here), Prada sunglasses, Target scarf, Rebecca Minkoff bag

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is hearing from my readers. Be it through comments, tweets or emails, I really feel like ThePearShape has created a little community and I love it more than anything. But perhaps my favorite thing to do with readers is give something back, personally. Every so often a gorgeous gal will email me asking for styling tips, ways to rework her wardrobe to make it more flattering, key pieces to invest in for one event or another that are tailored to her size, and shape. Putting together these outfits and really thinking about the key pieces that will make that girl look amazing on her day brings me such joy.

With that said, every once in a while I will be featuring an outfit I have put together for a dear reader. For this first time, it is a variation of the outfit above for my sweet reader, Hayley, who asked for some basics for her upcoming Mexican vacation with her boyfriend. I focused on pattern mixing, well fitting dresses, and classic wear-with-everything wedges to give her an outfit that would serve her well not only in Mexico, but beyond.

If you ever need help with a particular garment, outfit ideas, or questions on fit, please do not hesitate to reach out. I absolutely love to do it. I promise, I will try to get to as many as possible.

As always, thank you for reading.

Transition an Outfit from Day to Night


Forever 21 top (similar) and belt, Nordstrom skirt (similar and love it), Sam Edelman heels, Ann Taylor bracelet

Sorry for the grainy pictures ladies, these photos were taken later in the evening right before a night out! If this top and jewelry combo looks familiar it’s because it was in yesterday’s daytime peplum post. After a full day of walking around, I needed to quickly transition my outfit for night. I swapped my jeans for a mini skirt, flats for heels, tied my hair up into a low bun and put on some bright lipstick.



This is my first time wearing a garment over the waistband of this skirt (last styled here) and i’m undecided about how I feel. A few ladies complimented my look on the street but I feel as though it makes me appear a bit pouffy. Thoughts? Have you tried this look?


Also, a video hair tutorial for this look coming soon!
