Daily Outfit: White Cardi with a Dress

Exciting title, I know.  But that was the goal for Kim’s July Inspiration calendar for today, and that’s really what describes this outfit.  On summer days, it’s really nice to keep things simple.  A pretty dress, a light cotton cardigan, a few accessories and you’re good to go.

I love how versatile this dress is.  I’ve worn it with layers during colder months, I’ve kept it casual with leggings, and here I’ve dressed it up for a summer day at the office.  I know I say this a lot, but when you have limited closet space, versatility is a must.

I think that turquoise belt is fast becoming one of my essential accessories.  I love the bright punch of color and waist definition it can add to just about any outfit.  I’ve worn it with skirts, I’ve worn it over a waistcoat, here I’ve matched it with a dress.  I’ve paired it with green before, but I really like how it looks paired with navy here too.
