In spring a fringe scarf turns from insulator to accessory

Polka dots scream spring. The ice is meltwater from yesterday frozen over night. Clear ice is  dangerous in the dark as you can’t see it. Here the fringed scarf is just to add color and not for insulation anymore. This means spring. The tribal pattern belt holds the scarf in place and adds shape. The blue of the belt buckle and belt keep within the blue and black theme. See the guide at the link for more on how to best accessorize with belts.

Dress down a LBD with a denim shirt

Underneath I wore my LBD with a denim shirt with rolled up sleeve – recall it is spring – and my polka dot tights and blue patent leather L.K. Bennett pumps. Black sheaths are really versatile. There are so many ways to style them like camelions in the closet. The brooch shown below is a DIY. I made it in graduate school in a recreational silver smiting class.
