I always say the best outfits come when you don't put too much thought into what you are going to wear. I knew I wanted to be somewhere between casual and dressy and nothing says dressy casual then a pair of distressed denim. I wanted to elevate the denim a bit so I wore a light weight dress over the jeans which created a cool layered vibe. The dress has its own belt attached, but I decided to wear this velvet belt that stood out a bit more and that would cinch in my waist. The velvet also made the whole look a bit more dressed up. Velvet is super on trend right now and I'm not so into wearing to much of it so this was the perfect amount for me. This belt actually went with my wedding dress, and this was the first time I have worn it since. I was happy to finally wear it again in a whole other way. I finished off with a strappy shoe which always makes a look especially denim a tad dressier. Sometimes you just have to think a little outside the box to get a look all your own.
