Adding Personality to a Neutral Dress



  • Dress from Marshalls $15
  • Belt from Gabriel Brothers $5*Pop of value!
  • Wedge sandals from DSW $45
  • Scarf from Abercrombie & Fitch $15
Today's outfit idea took into account different ways that you can make a simple and drab color -like grey- stand out. If you are choosing to purchase a duller colored dress, pay attention to little details. Ruffles, half moon hems, crocheted details, and other small add-ons add interest to an otherwise simple dress. Casual sundresses like these are everywhere and extremely affordable. Investing in a few of these types of neutral colored dresses is smart, especially if you pay attention to the length. Sundresses will be your salvation at work in hotter temperatures if you keep the length no higher than 2 inches above the knee. These dresses provide a great opportunity to add pops of color like this belt or in your jewelry. There really are endless ways to accessorize summer's go-to sundresses, a lightweight scarf is just one option for chilly nights. There are so many ways that you can tie a scarf and I'm including some of my favorite scarf tying tutorial videos by scarf stylist Lauranne Plat of Liberty of London that I hope you all will enjoy!

Pop of health/fitness: Take a half-hour break. Spend 30 minutes relaxing and laughing, and you'll burn 20% more calories for the next two hours, say researchers at Vanderbilt University. Laughter reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone that fuels belly fat.
