What I Wore (Pinspiration)


A few weeks ago, I purchased a dress from Old Navy....


I loved it, but I really wasn't sure how to style it.  I'm too tall for it to work as a dress.  So I knew I'd need tights. 

My mustard tights just didn't look right.  White tights felt wrong.

But then I found a pin that completely fixed my problem....

And it wouldn't require a trip to the mall!  I had everything I needed to recreate this look!

I just couldn't decide where the belt should go..........over or under?


And how about that cardigan!?!  Not only is it mint, it's short-sleeved

Do you know what that means?  It's getting warm around here!!!

Two words:  spring fever.

  2. What a cute dress. Love how you were inspired to put it all together. And, I am torn between which way I like better. At first I thought under the cardigan but when I looked again, I kind of thought over...either way you can't miss. Enjoy the warm weather!!!

  8. I like the belt both ways. If you wear it over, the cardigan looks like part of the outfit. If you wear the belt under, the cardigan looks like an afterthought that works. Wear it either way, but I like the belt over best as far as an outfit ensemble, that's my vote.

  25. I wanted to get this dress in black, but I never did. It looks perfect on you though! I really like both ways you wore it, but for some reason, I like the belt underneath the cardigan? Couldn't tell ya why, but I do! :)

    Pinspirations are my favorite!
    So glad I found your blog, I'm now following on GFC! :)
