What I Wore: Floral cowboy

Happy Tuesday!

THANK you for all of the L-O-V-E yesterday!
Remember that you have until Sunday to enter the giveaway!

I have found it more challenging to actually dress down for work.
Not having to dress up for work is harder than I thought. I am so happy to have the opportunity to play with trends and experiment a little. I saw a picture (or a few) of ladies in florals and booties. So I decided to play with what I have in my closet. I am glad that I get to still wear my shorts. Pairing my floral shorts and blousy top with booties is an easy way to transition into Fall clothing.

A couple of things about my outfit...
  1. Blousier tops are hard to wear on apple shaped bodies (like mine). I honestly wear mine to hide the lumps and bumps. A trick I use to reign in the volume is to wear a long necklace that hits me at my smallest spot. It gives a place for the eye to rest and creates a line in a sea of volume.
  2. Since I am wearing shorter shorts (and showing off my legs) I try to cover  my arms and cleavage when in a work setting. I am a firm believer in leaving something to the imagination.

  3. Ugh love the outfit and your helpful tips! I find that with having big boobs, blousy tops tend to look huge and my shape gets lost in the mix. I will have to try your tricks and see if it helps!

  4. I definitely think it's easier to dress up for work than it is to dress down! But this is the perfect in between of cute yet not too casual. Love the shorts with the boots!
