Amongst the many things I love about what I do, helping people discover new ways to see their clothing is SO MUCH FUN!
Kathy is a former executive turned full-time mom of three who is getting used to her new shape, thanks to a significant weight loss. She was in need of coaching on how to put her small clothing inventory together, as well as developing a list of what to add and where to shop.
As part of her role transition, she wanted to make sure her style was sophisticated and feminine while not looking too old.
One thing Kathy does that I absolutely love is if she finds something she likes, she buys two. This is so smart!
Our first outfit for Kathy was selected for date night. She really wasn’t sure where to start, but she definitely knew she wanted to look good.
We started with a pair of jeans, added an animal print tee with a draped neck and put a jacket over the tee for the cool evenings.
Her brown wedge espadrilles will be perfect and comfortable as it warms up and they pair great with a wood and metal necklace, layered with a coral and red bead necklace.
Variations on this outfit could include a cardigan sweater in place of the jacket to dress the look down, substituting a bright gold necklace to dress it up and doing a metallic shoe in place of the espadrilles.
The only thing I would change about this outfit is the length of the jeans. Because Kathy is petite, I suggested she wear a longer hem to elongate her legs.
Kathy has a great geometric print top with an asymmetrical neckline with pops of turquoise. Her animal print top is definitely my favorite, but this is a very close second.
We mixed it into two different outfits, simply changing the top layer and accessories. The look on the left is more casual for fall and winter with the chunky sweater while the look on the right, including a rhinestone necklace, is more appropriate for networking or attending a special event with her husband.
Kathy could mix either of these look with jeans to dress them down or a short, lightweight cardigan in ivory, turquoise or yellow to lighten the overall look. She could also pair the look on the right with a grey pencil skirt for a more feminine take.
