Polka Dots and Ruffles



Top, Sunglasses, Bracelets: F21 // Belt: Unknown // Leggings: Old Navy
Heels: Target






The funny thing about this outfit is the top. 
It has ruffles and it's very girly.
I'm not a fan of anything too girly and cutesy,
because it doesn't really suit me.
What makes a HUGE difference is the belt.
Belting the top transforms it from 
a cutesy baby doll top,
to an almost regular cool top. (HAHA)
Seriously though, it makes a world of difference.
Without the belt, the top could look like a maternity shirt.
And I'm DONE wearing those.
I know some people are capable of pulling off this look without a belt,
but I'm not one of them. 
No matter what though, because of the ruffles, there is no denying that 
it still looks borderline-cutesy, but not
full blown cutesy.
I will say it again.....
Belts make a world of difference. 
Belts are my best friend!
I cannot say enough good things about belts! 

P.S. I kept the rest of the outfit simple, with very minimal accessories.
The shoes don't really "match" but I felt like wearing them.
