OOTD | My Favorite Silhouettes for Pear Shapes + Senreve Doctor Bag in Ice

I'm not a fashion blogger and I don't aspire to be.  My taste in clothing is rather on the simple side; I like blouses and long skirts and I appreciate a well tailored pant more than most people in the universe would.  I pay attention to the quality of my cottons, silks, and leathers so that the pieces in my closet will stand the tests of time.  It's basically the same principle I apply to beauty products: quality over quantity so always use the good stuff.  But since I'm back full time, I wanted to share more of myself and I figure OOTDs are a great way to do that since lots of you request these type of posts!

I also try to dress my body type as much as possible instead of mindlessly following trends and styles, most of which I don't understand and can't relate to anyway.  But sometimes I wear lululemon for two weeks straight, other times I dress like I'm a lawyer out of Suits, and every now and then I'll try something new like a cropped sweater.  That's why I carry my Doctor Bag so often.  Senreve makes bags that are elegant and practical without a logo plastered everywhere which means I can pair it with whatever style floats my boat that day.  The Doctor has been my every day bag for the past few months because I've been on the move — a lot.  The shape is straightforward with plenty of strap options and storage spots.  It fits my wallet, keys, scarf, small water bottle, make up bag, a book, headphones, chargers, and even a change of clothes when they're rolled up.  Plus, the slightly slouchy vibe when the zipper is undone is right up my alley.  

The Senreve Doctor Bag is a lot more understated than their signature Maestra but I think it's the perfect large/x-large bag for a petite 5'0 woman like me.  Currently I am a little heavier than my normal weight of 105 because I'm still shedding holiday bloat, just in case you'd like a reference.  I wasn't crazy about the Ice color at first because it's a pale warm slate but it actually matches with everything except reds and oranges.  I wanted Blush initially, but if I could go back in time I think I would get gravel.

Now now, I know bootcut jeans aren't in style any more but flares help immensely to balance out the shape of my muscular thighs while hiding the taller heels that I wear.  I also love off the shoulder tops in order to accentuate my neck and show a touch of skin in a ladylike manner.  Photos are mostly an art of illusion, so those are my little tricks for pear shaped ladies who want to take outfit photos!

My blouse was on sale at Aritzia and my pants are black denim from Paige.
My sunglasses are by Chanel and I'm wearing a lipstick called Super Cindy.
