As a blogger, I never tell you what you should wear or buy, but I do show you what I wore and attempt to explain why. I hope that it might help you work out what is best for you. Over the years, I have purchased a ton of books, taken several courses, and have been photographed many hundreds of times. Seeing photos of myself in countless different looks taught me the most.
One “expert,” told me that I was a low contrast summer and that I should wear soft flowing silhouettes in dusty colors, never black. I truly hated every look I tried using that guidance because I felt frumpy and chubby. I gave away many clothes while I was going through that phase because none of it felt like me.
Wear what makes you happy. That is the best style advice I can offer you.
These side by side photos were taken about fifteen minutes apart. Being true to yourself and wearing what makes you happy shows on your face. The basics are similar, but the colors, contrast, heels, and bold accessories used in the look for today are the perfect fit for me. The look for yesterday on the right might be a much better fit for you.
The lightweight items I am wearing today would work well for a summer dinner date. The hot weather dressing series ends tomorrow with my favorite tips for special occasion summer looks.
