OOTD

I got this new London Fog white purse from Stein Mart (they have amazing deals on designer products!) and I have fallen in love! If purses could be soulmates, this is it. I struggled between which color to get–black, brown, white, or burgundy. It’s important to consider your style, shoes, and outfits so that they coordinate well.

I eventually went with the white because I usually have black or bold colored shoes and wanted my purse to be a neutral and I own practically zero brown. I loved the burgundy as well, but the gold accents just clashed with me. The black also had gold accents, unfortunately.

In regards to my outfit, I was feeling a little adventurous, pairing red with my black and white basic neutrals. My inspiration came from my favorite fashionista, Gwen Stefani! I wish I could own every outfit she has ever worn.

Rico, my sister’s schipperke-pug, joined in the shot!

Red coat, white and black top with silver metallic beading, black skinny pants, red BCBG stilettos, and white London Fog purse.

On a side note, today was my oldest sister’s baby shower, the first of us eight kids to get pregnant! Congratz Burg!

Rainy OOTD

Hardly ever does it rain here in sunny San Diego, but today’s weather is a nice change of pace! That means I get to wear my biker leather jacket, warm tights, and clear rainy boots!

I’m absolutely in love with these boots. My parents got them for me while visiting London and I wear them whenever I get the chance. I can wear them with fun socks that I want to be seen, not hidden. Today it’s golden kittens on black socks.

I also love carrying fun umbrellas whenever the weather permits! I grabbed my baby pink one which matches the pink flowers in my dress and brings them out more. 

Pairing flirty floral dresses with leather jackets is such a fun juxtaposition and  creates an element of femininity and edginess—which I’m all about! Plus, there’s no reason to put away those beautiful summer dresses in the cold weather! Simply combine them with tights, sweaters, jackets, scarves, and boots to add some warmth and still look cute.

Enjoy the rain~UmbrellaStorm cloud

Dressing Your Truth

Hello readers!

I discovered Dressing Your Truth by Carol Tuttle back in November. I have been HOOKED since then, trying to figure out my type and typing everyone else I know!

Carol's book Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile

Carol’s book Discover Your Personal Beauty Profile

The basic premise is this: there are four main components found in life on earth. These four are oxygen, water, hydrogen, and carbon. Everyone has all four of these elements in them, and each have their own energy associated with it. Oxygen has a light, airy energy, water has a soft, calming energy, hydrogen has a hot, dynamic energy, and carbon has a solid and still energy.

In turn, we all express these elements to some degree, but lead predominantly with one energy type.

So, if you lead with oxygen/air, you are a “Type 1” person: bright, light, and animated.

If you lead with water, you are a “Type 2” person: peaceful, calming, emotional.

If you lead with hydrogen/fire, you are a “Type 3” person: active, dynamic, reactive.

If you lead with carbon/earth, you are a “Type 4” person: bold, still, and deep.

When I first discovered this, I thought I was a type 4 because that seemed the closest to my personality, however, once I tried to dress in a type 4 manner, bold clear colors and makeup, I felt that it didn’t look very good on me.

I then tried to find which one I second-closely resemble, and am at a frustrating loss. I could see traces of types 1, 2, and 3 equally distributed. I’ve even asked friends and family, only to find more confusion since they feel that I’m a pretty equal mix of all of them.

So, where I’m at right now is thinking that I should go back with my first gut instinct and trust it. I’m dressing as type 4 and seeing how I feel and look. I’ve been feeling great, I think I just lack the confidence to see that the type 4 is the best look on me. How frustrating!

Below I’ve attached images of me as all the types, since I have tested them all at some point in my discovery! Let me know what you think!

Carol Tuttle also has books on the subject which I highly recommend since the material is more in-depth and the rest are meant to be just “study tools”. Those can be purchased at amazon or through Carol’s website.
