What I'm Wearing Today

Martin and Osa dress
Victoria Secret cropped cardigan
Banana Republic gold and coral bracelet
Diamond pendant and pearl stud earrings (gifts from DH)
Nude wedge sandals

Yesterday when I was cleaning out my closet, I found this cardigan buried in the uppermost reaches of my closet's shelving. I bought it at a heavy discount last summer from Victoria's Secret. When it arrived, it was a lot shorter in length then I expected. I never wore it because I simply did not know how! Now because all you fabulous bloggers out there, I know how to wear a cropped cardi. I really like this combination; I hope the cardigan helps to slim down this dress.

After school, I hit the mall to order some flowers for a school function. I popped into Reitman's to look for some cheap scarfs in my quest to start accessorizing more. Instead, I found this belt. Belts are another thing I need to start adding to my wardrobe. I've never done a belt higher up on my waist but am going to try with this one.
Can I pull off the belt look? Any tips? I'd love to try a long open cardigan and this belt. Sounds like a good experiment for this weekend.


  1. Like the belt. I never wear them, so don't ask me - but that looks fab with the dress!!

  2. I am clueless about belts unless I am actually putting them through belt loops on my pants! I love the dress on you-- with or without belt!

  3. You look fantastic in that red dress- which is so gorgeous!!! I have been looking for a red dress in that shape and that perfect shade of red. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. You look good w/the cardi & w/the belt. The long cardi & belt will also look good, but don't be discouraged if it doesn't fly w/this particular dress. Long cardis often go better w/a less voluminous skirt. Just depends on color, pattern, shoes, etc...
