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!

Pastel Peplum for Day w/ Maroon & Mint Color Combo

Forever 21 top (similar) and belt, Ann Taylor curvy skinny jeans (here in denim), Tieks flats, LOFT and J.Crew bracelets

This weekend in SF was absolutely beautiful. The sun was shining and boyfriend and I had zero plans and tons of city to explore. I wanted to wear something that would keep me a little warmer but that definitely had major color. The last time I wore this peplum top it was with basic jeans and I am looooving how the mint color pairs with these maroon/eggplant pants from Ann Taylor.

If you haven’t picked up these pants from Ann Taylor, they are an absolute must in the pearshape world. Seriously, I have them in two colors and I am naturally not one to repeat purchase.

Stay tuned tomorrow for how I quickly turned this outfit into a nighttime ensemble with little effort!

Officially 23!

I’m officially 23! Whoa! This past Saturday was my birthday and all I wanted this year was to be very low key with my boyfriend. We spent the weekend eating amazing food, walking around parts of the city we had never seen, visiting the Fort Mason famers market and meeting friends at Off the Grid. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend, better weather, or a more wonderful city to spend it in.

I wore some variation of this outfit for the majority of the weekend as it was in the low 80’s most of Friday and Saturday. I’m getting more and more comfortable with pegged jeans and find them to be so versatile for Spring/Summer.

Lastly, this lipstick i’m wearing is my new obsession from NARS. The prettiest hot pink color.

Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes and for making me feel even more special!
