Simple Styling For Everyone
Sometimes I look at my closet and think,
“I have absolutely nothing to wear.”
In reality, I have a large amount of clothing that really just needs to be styled differently to give me a completely different look.
This yellow dress, that I found in the Target clearance section, is the perfect example of wearing one piece multiple ways and making it look like a completely different piece overall.
The first time I ever wore this yellow piece, was to my boyfriend and son’s birthday dinner at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs (left).
I was exhausted from a full day at Universal Studios, and on top of that, I had zero sleep the night before due to a stomach bug. I threw my hair back, put on my sandals and called it a look for the evening.
For this photoshoot, I wanted to incorporate the dress again, but add a lot more funk to it this time around. I had just ordered these incredible Sam Edelman booties off Poshmark (Thanks for the inspo Victoria!) and they were about the only pair of shoes in my closet that I thought would suit the dress well. Once I decided on the shoes, everything else fell into place. I don’t own any black belts (and I have no idea why) but I did have two brown belts.
I’ve never been one to be against mixing brown and black so I had no problem rocking the brown belt. I went with this thicker belt, that I purchased from Target years ago, because I wanted to hide the elastic band that the dress has. Once I decided on the belt, I tried on the whole outfit and quickly realized that I needed to somehow incorporate more black in to not make the boots look silly.
I thought about statement black earrings but my hair is too dark for those to stand out so I finally decided that unbuttoning the dress fairly low and showcasing a beautiful lace bra would do the trick. I needed a strapless lace bra to make this work though. Any straps on the bra would show since unbuttoning the dress left the straps to droop a bit. I found this stunning strapless lace bra at Target (on clearance for $3!!!) and that indeed tied everything in to create this really fun look that just blended incredibly well with the background.
