You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to feel good about yourself. We can dress attractively and on a budget. Today we are going to have some fun with fashion!
I have to confess that I like clothes, jewelry and make-up. I’m a girly-girl through and through. I want to encourage you wherever you are on your health journey that you can dress and feel pretty today. There is no need to wait until you have reached your goal to dress attractively.
I came across Shari Braendel’s book, Help me Jesus, I have nothing to wear about 10 years ago. Shari is a Christian Image Consultant.
She’s like a fashion fairy godmother.
After years of Mom jeans and T-shirts I needed help! Can you relate? She has helped me define my style. I learned the best colours for my clothes were based on my hair and eye colour. Who knew? Now I understand why I hated shopping for clothes in the fall. I look terrible in those dark earthy tones. Shari knows women come in all shapes and sizes. I learned how to dress for my body shape and feel confident.

Today I’m going to show you what I learned. I start with a white t-shirt and dark washed jeans. With a few little changes we take the outfit up a couple of notches. Thanks to my resident photographer for helping with the photos. I have so much more respect for fashion bloggers now. I had no idea how to pose, or where to put my hands. It’s harder than it looks. (teehee)
Here is the basic T-shirt, with some shape. Not a man’s T-shirt which has no shape. Dark wash jeans with running shoes complete the look for many women. I have my hair done and a little bit of make-up.
I added a statement necklace and earrings. I usually wear a bracelet too. A little bit of jewelry adds polish to this basic outfit. You could add a nice little pair of flat shoes and finish the outfit.
See how adding a little jacket changes the look? It’s the pop of colour and the completer pieces. Other completer pieces are a scarf, belt, cardigan or vest. I found this cute little jacket at Goodwill for 5 dollars! It even has beaded fringe on the bottom.
I replaced the running shoes with some cute little booties. I found these on sale for 10 dollars! I love a good bargain!
