Ever wonder what bloggers wear when they are just sitting at home doing nothing? Well, this is one version you might catch me in. Assuming of course its mid-day and I’m not already in my pj’s.

The reason this is more of an “off-duty” outfit is because it’s not very photogenic for my body type. Although I love a good t-shirt a jeans ensemble, the proportions just don’t work for me.  I tend to hold most of my “extra” weight in my hips and thighs.  Because of this, I tend to grab for A-line dresses, skirts or long (and very oversized) tops that drape over my hips and help to make them appear smaller and slimmer.  Dressing your body is all about an illusions and how to eye perceives the shapes your creating with your clothing!  Once you get to know what works for your body type, loving your clothing and your body is so much easier! Also, the camera does add 10lbs (as the saying goes). So, for all these reasons, very rarely will you catch me in an outfit of this nature on the blog.  But I thought I’d share this outfit for demonstration purposes 🙂

Xo, Andrea
