Geometric print dress, Max Studio. Black belt with patent, Steven by Steve Madden. Faux pearl necklace with medallion, Newport News. Black patent slingbacks, Audrey Brooke.
I love dresses because they make dressing easy, but it can be difficult to create different outfits, especially when it’s hot and you don’t want to add layers. I considered and discarded ideas of wearing a scarf, jacket, or sweater. I thought I’d take a chance and daringly wrap a belt around the already smocked empire waist. Some long pearls add dimension and femininity.
Predictably, Mike hated this outfit. (He detests the big belt look and characterized my pearls as “Grandma.”)
