Today I got dressed and my husband said, “Looks as though you are channeling Michelle Obama.” It's funny how a cardigan belted over a sheath really has become a signature look that we associate with the First Lady. I love the look, and love how it can take a sleeveless dress and make it more appropriate for a business setting (or the cooler months of the year). This dress I am LOVING – the Spring trend of Ikat prints, a style that can dress up or down and hey, what woman doesn't love a dress with POCKETS???
I had to replace my black patent belt from Ann Taylor – it just got too big and it wasn't a style where you could make another hole. I like this one, the curved buckle is a nice change and I am on the middle hole so I could lose more and it would still fit.
And I am really liking the bangs now that I washed my hair and got to play a bit with it. A nice change for spring!
