I’ve lost mine too. Well, I never really had one. Commenting to follow and to bump.

What about leggings and dresses, I am big and I find that really comfy and flattering. You can wear cardis or dress them up with a blazer. I wear that for work and casual.

I just heard about this new website you might want to try: www.stitchfix.com

I haven’t used it but friends have and love it.  It is a personal shopper kinda thing.  You tell them your sizes, price point and styles you like and they send you clothes that match your profile.  Sounds fun!

It really depends on what your shape is.

Would you describe yourself as hourglass, apple, pear, etc…?

Do any of your favorite stores have a personal shopping feature (J. Crew, Anthropologie & I think Nordstrom have a free service that others might have too) and they can help you learn what works on your body again.

I would also suggest maybe finding some inspiration from magazines or on Pinterest of outfits that you like and see how you can modify the clothes to work for your body!

ETA: Simple layers I find are the best way to start. Find some nice tops and then sweaters/cardis/blazers to go over (that you can remove if you have any hot flashes). Look for the basics first and then branch out from there!

I hear you.  My LO is only one month old, but beginning with pregnancy it seems like my focus shifted entirely to her.  Money, care, etc.  I’ve been wearing sneakers and jeans everywhere for the past month…and honestly, sometimes slippers and yoga pants.  LOL. 

 

I love this web site- jseverydayfashion.com

 

She posts really cute outfits that are affordable.  I definitely don’t have her body, but find the outfits good inspiration for shopping or putting things together from my closet.

 

If you don’t have to dress up I think a couple great fitting pairs of jeans with some feminine tops and cardigans and jackets always looks really nice. 

 

I agree with going somewhere with a personal shopper.  You could buy one or two things there, and learn what styles look best on your body, then take that knowledge somewhere cheaper!

 

I think the LOFT does personal shopping?  And J Crew (way too expensive for me, though!)
