DON’T UNDERESTIMATE WHAT A STATEMENT BELT CAN DO…

Hello Beauties! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Mine was quiet and cold. The weather has been pretty cold over here in the UK. Not really a fan to be honest, but I’m grateful because it could be worst with snow like some parts of the UK. It is still hard to take shoots sometimes. I just can’t wait for some sunny days.

Keeping it short and sweet this Monday. I was meant to post a motivational Monday post today, but the post took a personal turn which has made me kinda anxious. I’ve always been open here on my blog, but I think this post is next level open. It got me thinking. -So for now, I’ll sleep over it. Hopefully by next Monday, I’ve grown some kahunas. Lol!

Today’s #ootd is all about simplicity. This is an outfit I wore to church. When you hear minimalist style, the things that come to mind are; nudes, black and basics. Occasionally one will throw a colour in there to switch things up a bit. Being a minimalist doesn’t mean plain jane. I love throwing in statement pieces in the form of an accessory like this statement belt here. I think it elevated this look and created the perfect silhouette. This sweater dress is below five pounds from Primark. You can’t go wrong with it. Unfortunately this belt is old, but I’ve piled some nice statement belts down below if you’re interested. Don’t worry, not sponsored. Ha!!

Wishing you all a blessed week. Stay warm! If you’re on Instagram, lets become buddies over there too. Lets build a community instead of competing with one another. What is meant for you will be for you, so no need with the competition.

Waya say?

    Oh you are so right! This belt TOTALLY pulls this look together. It would still be a nice look w/o the belt but the belt takes it to the next level.

    I absolutely adore this look! This sweater dress looks amazing on you. I like how you’ve paired it with a statement belt. The heels and the mini bag are simply perfect as well. Very feminine, chic and elegant styling. You look picture perfect.

    My poor belts have been ignored for too long. I have so many great ones, and I totally forget about them. Thanks for the reminder.
