Dress Like You Mean It!

How much do you think about what you’re wearing when you get dressed in the morning? Maybe you just have a lot of pieces in your closet that you just aren’t sure how to wear? We’ve got a few ideas below to help you “dress like you mean it!”


Date Night:

It’s date night and you want to look cute, but effortless! Kallie takes a simple stretch lace dress and makes it an outfit, below:

Stretch Lace Dress- Free People sz S $32

 This Free People dress is nice on its own, but don’t you think it looks even better with a fun necklace, an animal print belt and a little cross body bag (pop of color, anyone??!)? Now you’re ready for that dinner & a movie 🙂
