Yesterday I tried something totally different and in the end I just didn't feel like myself and the outfit I wore just wasn't me. I really liked the outfit and hope that I inspired some people, but as for me I think I will retire the look and let someone else have it ;-) Today I am feeling more like myself and I am a lot happier with the outfit I wore. I feel like the outfits we choose to wear represent us and give people a little insight about who we are and I think this look definitely shows who I am.
I really do love black and have always been a fan of it, but recently I have wanted to introduce color into my wardrobe and I feel like I can do both. I still wear a lot of black, but I try and add a vibrant punch of color into each look. sometimes it is just a purse or maybe shoes, but this time it was the belt! I purchased this belt yesterday and a local shop, but did notice that it could be bought at modcloth.com and in a few more colors. I was drawn to it instantly and had to have it! I thought it would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe and as I was purchasing the item, I had outfit after outfit running through mind that I could use this belt for. This was the first outfit that came to mind. I have a full skirt with a crinoline and added a simple, basic black cardigan. I finished it off with the pink rose belt, polka dot tights (I love polka dots) and my black pumps. The belt is the featured item of this outfit and it pops off the black. The black skirt and dress was the canvas to the wonderful piece of art (the belt).
This outfit really makes me feel feminine and beautiful! My husband always chuckles at me when he walks in the door at lunch. I always ask him what he thinks of my outfit and I really enjoy his responses. Yesterday I think he thought my outfit was neat and today I was cute. To be honest I am lucky to have him, because he is honest and he does tell me if something looks off or doesn't flatter me. I would rather him give me the honest truth! I hope you like my outfit today and I inspire you!! ~Joey
