Dressing my Curves….

Posted on: August 14, 2014

After trying on several looks today, I finally settled on this one..

Not that this look is settling…


As a woman with curves, shorts are the hardest  thing to style…

It’s all about balancing my hips…

What better way than with a sheer kimono that ties at the waist?  


I bought this sheer kimono from Steinmart a few years ago around Chirstmas time when it was on their clearance racks and I had an extra 50% off coupon, making it around $4.  

My necklace is a recent purchase from Ebay of the beautful blue stones wrapped in silver.

I hope to get several pendants like these and a silver chain for my dear niece as a great way for her to accumualate many colors to indulge her passion for fashion.   

I’d also like to note that I love this deep color on my lips…

It’s just a cheap Wet/Wild brand I picked up at Walgreens called, Mink Brown. 


I wanted to wear flats today, but after a few attempts realized these pointed toe ones worked best with the shorts.

There really is something about those pointed toe that help elongate the leg…

This look is a wonderful blend of  thrifted items with my shorts and shoes from Goodwill…

My Purse is still available on Just Fab, Here. 


I guess I wore a very similar combo last summer with these shorts and kimono…. 

So funny!   

Dear Readers, Well, I finished all 4 seasons of Dowton Abbey and can’t believe how caught up in it I became… I think it proved my point about getting into watching entire seasons on Netflix the way the rest of my family does… I won’t be doing that any time soon as I didn’t like how addicting it felt.. I stayed up late, like seriously late… last night I was up unitl 5 am!    So lesson learned!  

Still standing strong and have had no diet soda!   


It may sound silly , but I am grateful I finally found an outfit I liked today after 5 or 6 tries…. No wonder I was into my easy skirt and top looks this week…

I am grateful that I sent the kids out for KFC instead of cooking tonight.

I am grateful that my daughter and son worked together and put the first of her items into the trailer our friend lent us to take her to Boston…A queen size mattress and box spring that was in the house and in my way…

I am grateful that my youngest was so patient with my taking over his computer these last few days to watch Downton Abbey, keeping him away from skyping with his friends and playing Minecraft… 

I am grateful that my youngest is such a willing photographer and takes doing a good job for me seriously…He actually took this pose from several angles…Looking forward to him taking a photography class soon.

Cute outfit! Love the kimono 🙂

Congrats on no diet soda 🙂 I think the shorts look great. I love the sporty look of shorts. I always feel ready for an adventure when I wear shorts and tennis shoes. lol

This looks extremely good and pulled together despite the length of the jeans. Great eye for style

Thiis is a great look on you….you have fabulous legs…should wear your skirts shorter (just below the knee) to show them off!!!!

I wear skirts of all lenghts.. I have been on a boho kick lately though… I was actually told on a formu last year that I wore skirts that were too short, LOL..Thanks for commenting and encouragiing!

Yes, shorts are hard to wear and style for me too, but you look great! Pretty kimono and what a steal!
