A WALK IN THE PARK KINDA DAY
Today was a simple but cute and comfy outfit. Shirt by Rue 21, pants by Express and Shoes by Gianni Bini. Outfit good for a stroll thru the park. I love earth tones.
No matter how stressful life can be at times, you can escape to regroup. The best places for me are parks and beaches. It’s something about the colors of a spring/summer park and the sound of ocean that calms my soul. You all should try it. [pictures below]

SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND 💎
Now I was pleasantly surprised when I got this dress. The quality is that of a $200 dress. 35% Cotton 65% Polyester equals fabulous. I haven’t washed it yet but when I do I’ll update everyone on the results… Love the color tho and again I did a multi-colored shoe.

When I travel I never leave home without an outfit from the Valdecio Collection. The colors, the fabric never wrinkles and just how it accents my body type makes it my number pick. Try it out I promise you; you will fall in love. I’m wearing the Mardi Gra Hoodie Dress.
NEW YORK & COMPANY
— Eva Mendes Dress (52% Rayon 48% Nylon)
Lunch Break flow.. walking through Towne Center feeling bright and vibrant. This Eva Mendes dress is form fitting but comfortable. I accented this dress with a floral necklace by Charming Charlie and multi-colored Steve Madden sandals. Bright colors make everyone smile, even those who you come in contact with daily. So don’t just wear bright colors for yourself, but for others. [picture below]

You don’t have to pay thousands of dollars to look fabulous. All you have to know is how to coordinate your wardrobe. Fabulous doesn’t have a price tag, fabulous is what makes you look and feel great! Be creative and go outside your box. Always remember don’t dress your age dress your body type.
BEACH TIME 👙🏖
Great Day at the beach getting a little tan for the summer. This dress by Fashion Nova is a perfect cover dress for the beach. The color is Mocha which is a great color for all skin tones. I always wear a cover up at the beach because my waist isn’t snatched like the Hour-Glass body types.
SPRING LOOK BOOK of Queenie’s Closet Below
I’m a PEAR Body Type. If you have a pear-shaped figure, wear shirts with bright colors and prints to draw attention to your upper body. Also, look for strapless shirts or shirts with wide necklines or V-necks to make your shoulders appear wider and more proportional. To slim your hips, wear straight-leg pants or pants that are flared at the bottom. If you have good portioned legs then you can wear skinny jeans, but stay away from the jeans that fit like leggings very tight around the ankles. Finish off your outfits with a bold statement necklace or a scarf to emphasize your upper body. For more wardrobe tips from Queenie (Women) Spring/Summer 2018 Look Book!
Be BOLD and STRIPE it up this SPRING — Helpful Tip
Strolling thru my neighborhood on this beautiful spring day. Let’s Chit-Chat about stripes. Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, pinstripe, dashed; all are fashion trend for this spring/summers. Remember to choose the stripes that works well with your body type. Pear (body type) should opt for a horizontal stripe top to create an illusion of a bigger torso. Apple (body type) with the larger midsection will benefit from vertical or diagonal stripes. Hour Glass (body type) can pull off any stripe pattern. Banana (body type) should choose large horizontal stripes to create the illusion of curves.
I’m a pear body type and I did the diagonal stripe V, but used a vest to breakup my body into sections and it worked. If you are going to go outside the stripes that works for your body type remember a vest will always do the trick to make your body look perfectly portioned.
