Tracy came to me with the typical busy mom wardrobe: baggy jeans, layered tees, and a somewhat vague idea of how she should, or could be dressing.  Her life is busy-2 boys, and a husband to take care of; she works full time, and loves to spend weekends with friends and family. She needed an updated wardrobe full of pieces that were both comfortable,  fun, and easy to put together. 

Tracy's frame is super petite, and she is a pear shape, which means that any weight she carries stays in the midsection. Typically woman who are pear shaped have a great bust-which every woman should enhance (in my opinion:). 

I'm certainly not a scientist by any means, but there is a true formula to follow when dressing this body shape (and most body shapes, really): Start with a great fitting pair of jeans (I love a straight leg or skinny jean that ends at the ankle), add a top that is fitted at the chest, yet flows away from the body right underneath the bust, and finish with a laying piece-a light jacket, cardigan, or shrug.

Since Tracy is shorter in height, her layering pieces should always end either at her waist or above (a cropped jacket looks fab!).

Finally, complete any look with a great pair of shoes, and a bright bag. Every woman should own a pair of nude wedges or heels, a pair of fashion sneakers (converse are a must have classic!), and a pair of ballet flats.

Thanks, Tracy for such a fun shopping adventure!  I can't wait to work with my next client. If you are interested in any of my styling services, go HERE for a list of opportunities.
