Athletic Body Type Fashion Picks for Cyber Monday

11/24/2017 · Category: Fashion • Lifestyle

Cyber Monday is here once again, so it’s time to stock up on styles that look great on your athletic body. Most female muscular body types are broad in the shoulders, and narrow in the hips. This creates a kind of “inverted triangle” shape. The less amount of hip you have, the more important it is to find bottoms that create fullness along the pevlis. I have a very popular blog post speaking about the female athletic shape that includes a quiz for finding out what body shape you have.

Today I’m sharing hand picked styles that are perfect for athletic body types, and will be on sale Black Friday through Cyber Monday. View full post

The holidays are upon us and credit cards are lit. Yes, LIT. Trying to save money holiday shopping is difficult because it is the most expensive time of the year. We shop for gifts and in turn, our bank accounts deplete with every check mark on the “nice list.” Being generous has a cost, and retailers love a generous heart. So it seems we have two choices; give big and go broke, or scrooge it up and save our money. View full post

Black, White, and Bold

I love neutrals, but neutrals don’t have to be boring. Finding a bold print or mixing cuts and textures is a great way to give an outfit spice. This skirt is not only in a bold black and white stripped print, but also an asymmetrical cut that draws attention to the ankle strap shoes. If you happen to have larger calves and ankles, like I do, try to keep the shoes slender and ultra feminine to balance out athletic legs. View full post


How To Dress Athletic Body Types

08/11/2016 · Fashion & Fitness

For a very long time I’ve felt ashamed of my athletic body type. I build muscle very easily, have always had bigger arms, shoulders, and calves than any of my female friends. I struggled finding my personal style in a sea of photos with beautiful petite and curvier women. Fitness pages give me inspiration, but I see a void in how to style that body type beyond workout clothing. This post is for all of you ladies who feel the same way and want a little inspiration.

Styling Yellow Trousers

10/13/2017 · Fashion

When I originally bought these pants I thought, okay, I love yellow. My closet is full of so much black and grey that if I don’t buy these I just need to quit life.  Seriously though, It’s strange because I love color, but when I choose garments, I am always attracted to deep jewel tones, black, and grays.  I literally have to force myself to grab brighter colors and take them home. Once I get them home, I can have fun because I have more options. View full post
