Spring Flowers

I'm starting to think this whole blogging thing might actually be working for me. Not only am I starting to figure out what I do and don't like on myself (it only took 30-some years, but whatever), but I've also picked up a couple of useful tips along the way.

Tip #1: When in doubt, belt!

I bought this dress deeply discounted at Macy's and it's kind of shapeless, and slightly unflattering when left alone. But I kind of fell in love with the pattern, and I figured it was something I could work with. And it totally was.

Tip #2: Leggings make a shorter skirt seem less...problematic.

Normally, I'd have been worried all day that my hindquarters were showing, since belting this dress took the hemline up an inch or two. But knowing that I was practically wearing pants under my dress? No worries at all.

Tip #3: Well, that one involves a scarf, and you'll just have to use your imagination this time.

Dress: Macy's
Leggings/Belt: H&M
Boots: DSW


  1. I love the slouchy belt!! It really toughens up the flowery dress.

    And I know what you mean about blogging! I feel like I'm finally learning what styles work for me.

  2. Haha @ tip #3 :) I agree with each of every one of these tips. You definitely look very spring like today!

  3. Belting...definitely the #1 blogger lesson...
    Love that great tunic!!
    Your red definitely looked good this weekend!

  4. I love the belt worn low and asymmetrically. This is really a great look. :) I def took the same three lessons away from blogging too.

  5. Totally agree! Belting a dress gives it so much shape and always makes everything look more flattering. You look great! Cute boots!

  6. fun dress...i love the print too! looks great with the belt! my solution is always throwing a blazer on and belting it at the waist!

  7. I LOVE IT!!! You look fantastic! I really like the belt on the hips, I wish I could pull that off but I don't think I'm there yet. You really look awesome!
