In an effort to “grow up”, I’ve tried to avoid shopping at the “usual culprits” when it comes to stores. I have found that bouncing from trend to trend is easier when you go with your gut and shop at stores that have a variety of different styles. However, the true challenge is finding who you are and who you want to be. I know it sounds cliche, but growing up and finding your personal flair can be difficult when you have become accustomed to pieces you’ve been gravitating toward since college.

As I approach that big 3-0, finding a classic and polished style with my own personal touches has become my priority lately. Instead of trying on trends and styles that I admire on other body types, I’ve come to grips with the fact that some of these styles just will not flatter MY body–and that’s okay.

I’ll always have wide hips, a big bum, and thick legs–but hey, that makes me who I am, so why shy away? Instead, I’m going to start making an effort to be truer to myself and my body style by only buying clothes in styles that flatter and complement these parts instead of covering them up.

These pants were literally $9 and I’ve worn them 6 times since I purchased them 3 weeks ago. I’m loving how they flatter a slim waist and balance out wide hips. The top, $4, scared me at first because it showed midriff and was tighter–but with pants like these I’ve found that they pair well together. You don’t have to show tons of midriff if you pair the crop top with the right pants, shorts, or skirts. I’m very much looking forward to finding similar styles to mix and match.

It’s Friday–enjoy your weekend! 🙂

    What a fun and stylish outfit! The pants look great on you, and at only $9 – what a steal! I also admire your beautiful necklace. And not everyone can pull off wearing a hat, but on you it looks fabulous. From head to toe you rock this entire look!

    Where do you shop to find those amazing prices- that outfit is fabulous. I love the pants. I’m with you on finding your personal style. I struggled with that as I entered my late 20’s. It’s hard making the transition, finding your style etc.
