in the details

if anyone's ever tried to tell you that details don't matter, i disagree. details make the world go round. well, not technically, but you know what i'm saying. simple changes, like a twisted belt, can make an outfit really interesting without going over the top. it's an understated detail that says, "yes, i did take more than 2 minutes to rifle through my closet and throw on this outfit. i even stopped to twist my belt". i'm telling you, it will make you feel real put together and on top of your stuff...even when you feel like you could not be more off your game.

p.s. dress: old navy | belt: target | shoes: gap outlet | earrings: francesca's

  4. How do you choose these accessories? I mean... I'm always in the dilemma of not having anything to add... but then I feel like I'm going out in search of something specific that will only go with this outfit. I'm very much wanting to get some belts for some of my dresses (they have that "waist" on them, you know what I'm talking about? That elastic waist? It's a strange look and needs a belt, but I have no idea how to get a color or style). What's a good place to shop for things like that? I need to accessorize in general, keep up the posts. You and your sister are my go-to every day how to be lady. ;)

  13. I have the same dress from Old Navy! I bought it in pink too because, c'mon, it was only $15! I didn't even think to throw a belt on it though.

  15. Yes! So true! I love how I feel when I take the time to put together an outfit instead of just throwing something on.

  16. So simple yet so cute! I love the pop of pink against the classic dark navy and white pinstripes.

  17. I love that look! When I went shopping with a client yesterday, we also bought a blue striped dress and a pink belt. Fate? Knotting your belt is a fun way to kick it up a notch (and it takes care of that weird, long tail).

  27. So I have this dress and other than wearing it around the house I didn't really know what to do with it. I love the red belt and wedges though! Thanks for helping me see the potential!
