In general, I have a smaller chest and shoulder width, so here is my take on each outfit shown above on me versus on the model.
1: Dorothee Schumacher Top
I styled Dorothee Schumacher's pink tender flow cotton and silk top with corduroy jeans by Rebecca Minkoff, as I decided to have a little fun playing with monochrome. The model, on the other hand, styled it with white to let the shirt stand out in the whole outfit. I also decided to wear the neck tie a little differently, and threw on really standout Fendi hot pink heels! Looking back, I wish I knew that the contrast between the fabrics on the sleeves and the mid-section of shirt was pretty drastic, but I still think there's a way to make it work for me!
2: Tory Burch Dress
Cottage Core Alert! This dress by Tory Burch was a part of a fairly recent collection, and is quickly getting sold out. I paired it with minimal gold accessories; I was still a little more experimental than the model was. This is because the fit was a little loose on me, so I had to accentuate certain other areas with jewelry to balance the look out. I was surprised at just how puffy the sleeves actually were, especially on me! One thing I wish I knew earlier was that the waist, while flattering, is a bit too loose. It would be nice if it was elastic or adjustable to give me a nice shape.
3: SIJO Loungewear Dress
This dress fit a little extra loose on me than it did on the model. Having a smaller chest, and slightly bigger hips and thighs, the dress naturally stuck to the lower part of my body. The feel is definitely just as comfortable as it looks, with this being a piece I slip into most, post shooting content. If I was shopping for this now, I wish I would have known to maybe get a color that was a little more bold, so it would complement my skin tone.
4: Zara Tee
This tee from Zara is one that can be styled up or down, and looks chic with a pair of black shades. If you're feeling extra colorful like me, throw on a pair of colored jeans and a colored lip to go with it. The model, on the other hand, choose to go bold with the scarf headband, which is definitely an idea I'm going to steal in the future! I wish I knew that this shirt was a little more see-through than I would have liked, especially the more you wash it, and that you might have to be a little careful with the bra you wear underneath.
5: Reformation Jumpsuit
This 'Carolina' jumpsuit by Reformation is stunning all year round, but looks especially great with subdued by dark accessories like a brown (model) or dark purple (me). I chose dark purple because it added an extra feminine touch! I wish I knew that the waist and bum area were going to be loose on me, and I'd have to wear heels to give the outfit some shape. Nonetheless, a jumpsuit is great because it saves time in the morning. You don't have to waste extra time putting two garments on. It's a one and done situation!
