Rocking with Lace

This linen shift looked incredibly comfortable, which is why I picked it up. 100% linen dress for $7? Heck yes. It needed to be hemmed because short legs + mid length dress = recipe for an unflattering outfit. After a 10 minute alteration, it was ready.

                                             Long & shapeless. Not a good look. 

In this first look, I went a little country. Underneath the shift I'm wearing a cream colored top with lace sleeves. The dress worked with the top perfectly, so all you see of it are the sleeves. A belt to define my waist, red boots & a long turquoise pendant complete it. I had the urge to go to a Florida Georgia Line concert after wearing this.

         Look 2 feels more appropriate for an office job or church. By changing the shoes and belt, the dress has a different vibe. A nude belt & shoes have more of a toned down look. Belts are wonderful accessories! They can easily add definition and change a look. Don't be afraid to rock one!
