Since my corporate days I have developed a great love for jackets. They are so versatile and can go anywhere from super casual to very dressy, from loose and unstructured to fitted and structured.
I am not a huge fan of patterns, but this geometric style caught my attention. My dramatic style personality doesn't find patterns very attractive. I am more of a solid colour and statement accessory lover.
This is a new top I bought recently and I really enjoy wearing it. I pair it with black jeans and black boots and I love the resulting look.I do find it quite a dark outfit though so I like to add a statement necklace. You can see from the photo the necklace is very bright and full of colour. It expresses me perfectly and adds a lot of fun to the outfit.
In answer to your questions, I am sharing some ideas on how to dress when you are tall and slim.
Let's start by how you can appear shorter:

I have wanted a jumpsuit since I was 15. They come in and out of fashion but every time they are 'in' I have wanted to get one.The problem: The fit with my pear body shape. (My hips are wider than my torso is).
Most jumpsuits have huge pockets or elastic waists that just make my hips look huge. I had one before that had pattern below the waist and I actually loved that jumpsuit.
I am sure by now you know how much I love helping women to stand out with confidence and style. To be visible to themselves and their desires in life. Now let me ask you, have you been unsure about how to present yourself to look the part? Are you wondering if your appearance comes across as the professional, capable and intelligent woman you are? Are you wanting to create a strong and visible presence?
Today we are talking about flat shoes in response to some requests from you girls. As I am not a flat shoe wearer I am using some pictures and not my own outfits ;)
Last week I was in beautiful Mallorca, Spain attending an event for my coaching and business training program. This outfit is what I wore on day 2 of the training. I decided to wear this black and white outfit. This combination of colours creates a mood of confidence and inspiration.
Today I want to share with you a story. I am always eager to improve and take my business one step further so when a client asked me if I wanted some feedback on my marketing, my answer was definitely yes!However, I was very surprised by her thoughts, she told me that when I spoke of being a “leader in your industry” it didn’t resonate with her at all.
Winter is here! At least in the southern hemisphere. I get asked a lot by my clients about how to still use dresses during winter. I really believe that there is a lot from your summer or spring wardrobe that you can still wear in the cooler months.
There is something about the latin culture and jeans. We love them!I must have worn them everyday during most of my 20's. I really enjoy wearing them casually as well as dressing them up a bit.
A couple of years ago one of my friends sent me a picture of a wedding dress and I absolutely fell in love with it. I kept the photo just in case ;)When Scotty proposed last July I still had the photo so I knew exactly what I wanted my dress to be like. I wasted no time in contacting one of my designer friends in Medellin and asked him to help me find someone who could create the dress for me.
I absolutely love nude shoes because they are so versatile and go with every outfit!
Whether it's beige, silver, gold or even skin colour, nude shoes will complement every outfit. And even better, they make your legs look longer.
Something my clients often tell me is that it is difficult to step away from wearing black or neutral colours. There is 'this' perception that it makes your life easier.
Adding colours, sounds interesting, they say. But they don't quite know how to mix and match colours, or what looks good on them. So it is too hard and it ends up being easier to stick to plain colours.
The length of your tops and jackets can easily balance your vertical proportions (meaning the balance between your torso and your legs). The lengths of tops and jackets are easily noticed because their hemlines often create contrast with the colour that you wear on the bottom.
I never thought women could be so 'worried' about our arms. In the last few weeks I have been asked many times about the best sleeves to 'cover' your arms. I have to include myself here, as my wedding fast approaches and I am wearing a strapless dress, all I can think about is how to make my arms look better ;)
As you already know I am an accessory lover! They complete an outfit. They take an outfit from Ok to great. As well as helping to instantly dress outfits up and down.
Necklaces are one of my favourite statement pieces. I am not exactly a print lover, so wearing a lot of solid colours allows me to add necklaces to finish my outfits. Previously I haven't enjoyed wearing scarves but lately, I have become a fan. I think we all go through phases of liking certain things more or enjoying wearing different styles or different types of clothing.
On the Outfit of the Week this week I am sharing with you my 4 MUST HAVE Items to have in your Capsule wardrobe for work.
To look the part you do NOT need to wear only black or white, or gray. That is when your wardrobe starts making you feel plain and you will most likely feel bored with it. I do think that with your basics you can have white, black, grey and beige, but if you are always wearing these colours you will not be seen as a leader.
One of the comments I hear a lot from professional women is how difficult is to be themselves while looking professional and industry appropriate. One of the parts of my business I enjoy the most is helping women stay true to who they are while still creating a strong and powerful image that they love.
