About

Fall-transition-floral-top-4My name is Katie and I am the Pear Shaped Girl.  I’m a thirty(something) working mom with a penchant for fashion and a text book pear shape.  I’m not a skinny minnie or plus-sized, living the high-life or pinching pennies and I want to share my experience translating the latest trends into flattering looks.  I love a bargain, but I’m not cheap and I scour stores and websites to find items that fit my budget and my lifestyle.

I know all too well how finding the right hemline, ankle strap location, denim style or blazer cut can make or break an outfit.  Being a pear shaped woman has helped me refine my style to compliment my best features.  After dishing out style advice to everyone I know, and even being taken on some personal shopping trips, I decided to document my journey in fashion as well as share some beauty tips.

Not a pear shape?  Don’t despair.  My advice for fitting unique shapes doesn’t stop at my own.  I have three sisters all with different figures and we’ve been sharing style secrets since we were born (or at least since we could talk).   I’ll even feature different body types on the blog.

Since I’m also a first-time mom with a full-time job, I know how hard it can be to stay fashionable and hip with limited time to think about my wardrobe.  I try to find looks that are easy to put together – even with a baby tugging at my leg while I do it.  I’ll try to post as often as I can but be patient with me as I navigate this blogging/mommy/full-time working thing.  Also, I’d love to hear from you too so please share your style tips, questions and comments with me!
