I swear I am almost done with these extra posts from before the haircut. I’m going to post the rest this weekend which will finish the storage of photos I have and get me caught up to the numbers that so many of the other 30 for 30 challengers are on. I’m behind. This is outfit 17 of 30.
I think this outfit was a good idea but maybe not pulled off correctly. The button-down shirt works well under this blue dress. And I wanted to add a pop of color so I went with the bold yellow belt. I think the belt was what messed up this look. It made me look bigger on top and bottom thanks to the position of the belt, its size and the extra material that is already part of the dress. If I were to remake this look I’d lose the belt, opting for a skinny belt instead and maybe try my white booties instead of the tall gray ones.
Tomorrow Fashion/Beauty Friend Friday is launching it’s first ever Blogger awards! Each participating FBFF member will nominate his/her favorite blog in 10 different categories.

Tip: When belting an item, take into account how blousy the top is and what that will do to your proportions.
