So I’ll say it… I’m carrying around a little extra ‘timber’ on my current frame.

Hardly noticeable to those who don’t know me, but my jeans are a little extra snug, my tops have a little more cleavage and my stomach has a little more hang. These are things I know I want to work on, and will change, but I’m not in going to rush the process. However during this transition period I still want to have some style and make it work and I know this is an a experience that many women go though, from those on a weight-loss journey, those impacted by motherhood and others who just seem to fluctuate.

When I put this look together, I kind of gave myself a nod in the mirror and realised I look good and felt great, so I thought of the reasons why and wanted to share these today.

  1. COMFORT IS KING.

There is nothing like not having to suck in, tuck back, squish and squash. I’ve realised that a button down shirt is the best for those wanting to look stylish but feel comfortable. This shirt is from Zara, in a gorgeous cotton fabric that feels great on the skin and gives me extra room to let it hang.

2. SUPPORT

Whether it is a strong belt, a good bra or even spanks, when you feel supported  you will feel more comfortable and your clothing will sit on your frame in the most flattering way. Belts are currently a life saver for me when my jeans are on the tighter side.

3. SIMPLE CLASSICS

These will always look stylish no matter how a persons body changes. Wearing simple looks like a shirt jeans and heels, will alway look good in all seasons. Similar to wearing all black, some looks will always be right and ts ok to go back to the basics

3. A DASH OF ‘SWAG’

Be it a pair of heels, or the perfect accessories, adding that extra ‘je ne sais quoi’ will keep you stylish even when your body is changing.

    you can never go wrong with the blue, white and brown combination. Comfort is key as you have mentioned Pat. What good does it do when you are in pain all day in the name of being “hot”? Love the post
