Scolloped Edging



Happy Saturday:)! This post was inspired by the beautiful Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere! I loved the dress with the gorgeous scalloped detailing. I wanted to try something different, so I wore a yellow cardigan under my dress and threw on a belt (although...it's not meant to be worn with a belt because it's a shift dress). Hope you like it! Thanks for reading:)!

  8. I love shift dresses and this is gorgeous! The colour suits you so well.
    I think there are "rules" which can be ignored easily and the thin belt is so cute with this dress.

  44. Wow, I love the color of that dress. It truly brings color to your face and the necklace complements it rather nicely. You made a good decision by belting it, otherwise it would've looked like a night gown. The belt accentuates your curves and gives the dress more of a nice silhouette. That was pretty creative of you to wear a cardigan under it, I would've never thought of that. Lovely outfit! Quick question--I've noticed an absence of a bag in your latest posts, and I love your bags! The posts with bags give me ideas of how to carry one that is a different color than the rest of my clothes. I hope one makes a debut soon. :)

    1. Thanks for the reminder girl! I got so used to taking my pics without a bag lately, but I definitely need to incorporate it back into my pics. I just don't want to feature the same one over and over and over again lol, but I guess it's totally normal. Not everyone has the budget to wear a new bag in every post. So I will definitely do my best:)!
