Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Beyonce just a few gorgeous women you may have heard of. What do these queens have in common other than being BOSS BABES, moms and successful triple threat entertainers? They all share the same body shape. These beauties have a triangle body type, meaning their glutes/thighs have a larger circumference than their shoulders and waist. Browse my Pinterest board below for styling inspiration.

Knowing your body type is literally half of the battle. The other half is dressing it. Look for silhouettes that showcase your assets and conceal your trouble areas. How in the H do you do that, Queen? Simple, book a styling session with yours truly and viola! The goal when styling a triangle body type, is to create balance and define the waist. While you’re booking your PERSONAL STYLIST session, start implementing the following tips and you’ll be well on your way to Vogue’s best dressed list.

  1. Intentional Neckline
    • boat neck tops, sweetheart neckline, V neck, one shoulder, off the shoulder
  2. Bold Shoulders
    • bold/colorful/metallic/ruffled tops draw attention to the top half of your body and create an overall balanced appearance
  3. Skirts
    • above the knee pencil skirts, fit and flare skirts and dresses, A Line dresses
  4. Denim
    • flares, boot cut, wide leg, skinny jeans
  5. Waist

Why fit in, when you were born to stand out

Anna Wintour


When it comes to looking (and feeling) put together, no one questions the power of make-up. For me, looking good is deeply connected to feeling good. Being made up is a huge confidence booster. Let’s dive into my most favorite and hardest working products that get me out the door in a flash. Here are the products in my 5 minute make-up routine.

Treat your make up like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure – it can transform you.

When time is of the essence, the make-up you pick really matters. Knowing your go-to products for a 5 minute make-up routine is essential. For example, I will choose a product that packs a heavy punch or can multitask. Either or will save me time on the back end. I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter because it provides my skin with a primer + tinted moisturizer + a lit from within glow. On a ‘good skin’ day that product is the ticket. Let’s keep going with this ‘good skin day’ scenario. So now we need to give the face some dimension. Take NYX’s matte bronzer and sweep it round the hair line, under the cheek bones and across the eyelids. Are you getting my drift? One product doing double duty!

For the finishing touches, don’t get lost in the weeds. Stay focused on high impact. Highlighter and blush pack a big punch. Toss a mini/sample size of mascara and lipgloss in your purse/diaper bag. Mark my words, the day will come when you’ll leave the house without them. Avoid the panic and pack the mini’s. They take up zero space and are hero pieces in a pinch.

fall fashion trends

Fall Fashion

Pumpkin spice lattes (PSLs) are right round the corner, Queen! I’m here for all things autumnal, especially fall fashion. Sultry make-up, cozy fabrics and layering pieces define my fall capsule wardrobe.

To some degree fashion is cyclical. Invest in classic pieces. Shop smart for the trends. Above all, choose trends that suit your aesthetic and compliment your silhouette. If it doesn’t fit and flatter your body, put it down! One can be modern, fresh and on-trend by merely dabbling in a fall fashion trend or two. For example, a hand bag or leather belt in an earthy tone is an easy way to incorporate the trends this fall. Or how about leather driving gloves for on trend edge. Blouses with a puff sleeves or accentuated shoulders will be everywhere. But never feel compelled to participate in something that doesn’t honor your personal style. Here are some of the trends you’ll be seeing in your Instagram feed, in fashion magazines and on this queen!

Must Have Sunglasses

Aviators and oversized sunnies give me LIFE, Queen! My must have sunglasses come from Quay Australia, Prada, Blenders, Ray Ban and Tom Ford. In my opinion these brands do it right and have for years. They offer classic frames with a modern twist. As with anything else, you get what you pay for.

So I have a slightly round face (I get that from my Dad’s side of the family) and feel my best in aviator frames. For the most part, aviators are the single frame that most face shapes can wear with confidence. If you can, try the sunnies on in-store or virtually.

Big fond fan of wearing my glasses as a headband, however this results in the blasted nose piece getting stuck in my hair! Trying to find frames with no nose piece is a challenge. Lucky for you I’ve done the research and development for us. Check out Blenders and you too can avoid the blasted nose piece prongy bits getting stuck in your hair. And lastly, gradient and mirrored lenses give eyewear a very mysterious celebrity vibe. You know this Queen is here for it!


Vacation Outfits

Headed on vacation, Queen? Whether you’re traveling to the beach, lake, the mountains or on a long weekend away, I’ve got your stylish outfits picked out!

Knowing your personal style is very important and staying true to yourself is the golden rule. I use the following adjectives to describe my personal style; GLAM, FASHIONISTA & EDGY. How about you, Queen?

The first night of sun exposure calls for a white jeans outfit. While I may look tanned, I am freezing and therefore need layering options. Allow me to introduce my favorite layering piece for summer, the white blazer. Draped over my shoulders I feel fierce and edgy, but not trying too hard. The same could be said for a denim jacket, dealers choice. How you style your vacation outfits is the key to looking elevated, modern and fresh.

Cute fedoras are a beach necessity. If you aren’t a hat girl, no worries. Over sized sunglasses or a beautiful scarf tied in your hair are fabulous finishers. If you haven’t scooped up some fresh espadrilles, run don’t walk, Queen. While you’re at it check out my post Best Summer Sandals and Pumps.

Edgy Style Type


What you wear speaks volumes to the world around you. Our clothes have the power to set the tone for our entire day. Choosing to wear a cheery ruffled dress or your favorite band t-shirt, is you subconsciously telling the world a little bit about your personal style type. To identify your style type, consider what inspires and brings you joy. Look to the following for inspiration; favorite colors, music you love, hobbies, interests, movies, or fashion from a specific era. All these qualities meld together to create your personal style and aesthetic. Here are some of the basic (but not basic) style types.

  • EDGY

When I think about my personal style type, I don’t fit into one box. My style type encompasses Fashionista, Edgy and Minimalist depending on the day and my mood. And that’s okay. Fashion is expressive and meant to be fun. Wear what makes you feel good, Queen!

How do you determine your own style type? Take the style quiz below.

If you answered with mainly 1s your style is Minimalist, mainly 2s then you’re a Fashionista, 3s then Bohemian, 4s Edgy, 5s Romantic or mainly 6s your personal style type is Athleisure.


Less is more is a minimalist’s motto. Think capsule wardrobe, quality over quantity, fabulous basics paired multiple ways, and a minimal color palette. In short, minimalist style is intentional and edited. Check out Emma Hill and Sarah Anne Hayes who always get it right.

SHOP THE LOOK: shorts, sneakers, tank


Fashionista’s truly go for it when it comes to fashion choices. Getting dressed is a means to showcase their creativity and be over the top. Making a statement is almost always at the top of their list. Check out this Pinterest board by Visual-Therapy for inspiration.

SHOP THE LOOK: dress, belt, bag, sandals, spray tan curtesy of Spray and Slay


Bohemian style is relaxed, lived-in, or funky, and incorporates offbeat accessories and usually lots of denim and suede. Its emphasis is on natural fabrics and earth tones. This style evolved from the hippie look of the 1960s and the early 1970s.

SHOP THE LOOK: flares, bodysuit, hat, sunglasses


This cool girl vibe is effortless for an Edgy style type. Graphic t-shirts, moto jackets, distressed denim and black boots are her wardrobe staples. Be daringly innovative and embrace what makes you, you! Look to Emily Wheatley’s Instagram for classic minimalist edge inspo.

Ruffles, lace, color and prints are descriptive adjectives most used to describe a girly girls wardrobe.

SHOP THE LOOK: dress, sandals, summer bag, turquoise necklace, gold coin necklace


If your style is more casual, you thrive in athletic apparel and you feel most ‘you’ in your favorite sneakers, then your dominant style type is athleisure. You credit your edge to street style.

SHOP THE LOOK: tights, cropped hoodie, sneakers, sunglasses

Hourglass Silhouette

If you’re blessed with an hourglass figure, congratulations! Everyone hates you…just kidding. This is the most coveted female body type. The hourglass silhouette is symmetrical and made famous by Marilyn Monroe, Kim Kardashian, Salma Hayek and Sofia Vergara. If you do not have a defined waist and balance in your curves, fear not Queen. Here are simple tips from a personal stylist to fake those infamous 36x24x36 measurements.

How to Create A Waist

While dressing yourself be very aware of optical illusions. Think about proportions and balance above all else. In order to achieve an hourglass silhouette, one has to accentuate the waist and ensure balance is achieved on the top and bottom halves. For example, if you’re Jennifer Lopez (a classic triangle body type) you can afford some volume in the bust or shoulder area. Add ruffles, boat neck collars or off the shoulder tops to enhance this area, all the while creating balance with the lower half. See below for more tips, tricks and my Hourglass Body Shape Pinterest Board for more inspiration.

  • belt everything
  • v neck tops
  • fit and flare dresses
  • high waisted jeans
  • flare jeans
  • empire waist dresses
  • balance volume at shoulders and lower half
  • tuck in your tops
  • peplum tops
  • wrap tops
  • wrap dresses
  • three quarter length sleeves
