I am blessed in innumerable ways, but I think I lucked out especially in my genes. My non-chicken legs are from my dad and my love for yoga is from my mom. My parents are healthy, fit 60+ year-olds and I hope to be as fit when I am that age.

They are seriously the cutest parents ever. But I digress.

Going back to the 'rents, I feel like I inherited my proportional frame from them. They are both pretty tall for Chinese peeps and I am glad to be fairly tall as well.

That said, I hate when magazines, etc. label women's body types with edible items. I never know what "classification" I fall under. While I certainly don't have a perfect model thin body, I don't think I am a pear, apple or carrot stick. I don't know anyone I would call an apple or a pear. Not sure what that is all about!

This is the first time I have worn this tank tucked it. It is loose and flowy with a lot of extra fabric, so I wore a big belt to hide any extra bulge. I think I like it!

Happy Saturday to you!

Oh, this outfit is so beautifully put together! I love the colors of that skirt!

Love that skirt, especially with that top. Your parents look so cute in their pink! Also great new header.

Melissa said...

I like the proportions that are created when a flowy top like that is tucked into a pencil skirt. You look beautiful and your parents really ARE adorable!

Haha! I'm not an apple or a pear, either, and I hate those terrible "dress for your body type" articles. Nobody fits squarely into any of those categories. Btw your parents are absolutely the cutest.

I love the splashes of color in the skirt. The whole ensemble looks really good on you.

Did you plan your outfit to match your 'rents Photo? Either way I adore all the Pink. It's obvious they are in love.

I don't match any of the Produce Body Types. It's possible I'm a Papaya.

Your parents sound amazing, and they look adorable in that photo!

Magazine classifications are absurd. I dislike that they use the word curvy as code for overweight. Because I do not consider myself overweight, but I am pretty damn curvy.

Chic on the Cheap
