"Be yourself. Find the pieces that work for you and make you feel good about yourself." ~Max Azria

(Nordstrom: Donna Ricco Stretch Cotton Party Dress)

This is such good style advice: Find what works for you and wear it! Dah...sometimes the advice is so obvious, but not everyone is taking it. We've all heard: don't try to be something you're not...well, don't try to dress like something you're not either! Be YOU. Wear what you like...but be sure to choose from styles that are flattering for you as well. That way you will look great and feel great. Dressing like a frump never feels good (even though some days at home in our sweats sounds like a pretty good option).

For me, I'm most comfortable and feel good when I'm wearing a dress or skirt. I find this to be the case mostly when the weather is warm. In the winter it's pants just about every day. 

I don't like prints much either. I typically pick out something that is in solid fabric vs. a printed one. I do have a couple of dresses and blouses that are prints, but I honestly don't wear them much because I don't feel as good in them. (Perhaps at the end of summer I should consider editing them out of my closet if I don't wear them). I'm always on the lookout for casual-chic looks that include dresses and skirts instead of the typical shorts and capri looks. 

What about you? What pieces of clothing do you feel most comfortable in, and why?


  1. I am with you on the "prints". I don't feel all that comfortable in most of them.

    I always feel more comfortable in clothes that are a notch dressier rather than more casual.

  2. You and I are akin when it comes to style apparently!

    Nice to know someone feels the same way!
