You finally get to sneak away and have some “me time.” What exactly can you do with this free time?

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In these pictures I am 5’1′ 135lbs.  I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.
