As I like textures, especially ones that look organic, I fell in love with the skirt. In addition it is in a beautiful brown and so it is easy to combine with most of the other colors in my wardrobe. But the thick fabric is a little difficult for a pear shaped body.

Wearing thick fabrics on a pear shaped body

Thick fabrics on a pear shaped body usually add volume. And this skirt does add extra volume around the hips. Anyway, I like it so I find a way to make it work…

White ruffled blouse

The color of the shirt balances my hips a little bit, as the crème color is lighter than the brown. The ruffles on the front add volume to my chest and the slightly puffed add some to my shoulders.

A camisole underneath to make it business-safe

Without the camisole I would show too much décolleté for my workplace. To make it suitable for the business environment, I added the camisole.

Accessories

As there is a lot going on already with textures in my outfit, I did not put on a lot of jewelry or accessories. Just a pair of brown studs.

Day 10 Shopping my closet

A pear shaped’s outfit

  • Crème colored blouse: Ralph Lauren, second hand

  • Brown shoes: Softspots, bought in an outlet in North America

Occasion

  • Working at a client, facilitating workshops. I stood about 7 hours today. The dress code is not too formal.

Thoughts on helpful pictures

I love the skirt and I love the blouse – and I already wore them together several times. But when I saw the pictures, I thought: the ruffles together with the texture of the skirt look a little rustic. Maybe due to the busy texture of the blouse together with the busy texture of the skirt.
I have not noticed that effect before. Great to have that extra effect of my 365 day style challenge: The feedback from the pictures adds more info than just my mirror did provide.
I am just at the beginning of this challenge, but I hope to get some feedback from you, girls!
