Okay I’m putting this out there….“I’m nicer when I like my outfit!” I saw this on a friend’s Facebook page and thought it was just too good not to share! And truthfully….this really hit home with me!
Shoes, belts, and handbags most definitely make me a nicer person. So, let’s start with the base of all niceness…shoes! My favorite style for spring is the slingback. A pair of Chanel cap-toe slingbacks is the ultimate in a luxury shoe. Be sure to look at some less expensive copies on our Pinterest board. And if I owned a pair of Ganni’s slingback kitten heels in snake print…I think I would be extra nice!
Belts are our friends….because they complete an outfit and mainly because they nicely cinch our waists. A trendy way to wear a belt is over a suit, blazer, or coat. We love how a long wrapped silver belt cinches a white pantsuit. Styling a cocktail dress with a belted blazer helps maximize the pieces you already have in your closet. Sounds like someone is taking nice to the max!
Belt bags are still on-trend and can be worn two ways…around your waist as a belt or over your shoulder as a cross-body bag. We are loving the resort vibe a Max Mara belt bag gives a white pants ensemble. A street style star shows us how to stay on trend by draping a belt bag over one shoulder. And we think a pale pink leopard print dress worn with a pink Gucci belt bag is especially nice!
So what do you get when you pair an “it” bag with a style influencer? That would be a whole lot of niceness! And please know, when I say “it” bag, that doesn’t necessarily mean an expensive designer bag. Translucent bags are so on-trend and you can spend as little or as much as you want. My style hack is pairing an inexpensive clear bag with a designer clutch. How genius and nice does that sound?
My go-to look is a blazer and a blouse. BTW….having a go-to look definitely makes me a nicer person. I am always on the lookout for a statement blouse. That way I can push my blazer sleeves up and show off the beautiful cuffs. I’m loving a Floryday lace and ruffled button down shirt…perfect for my springtime go-to look!
I’m pretty sure anything in animal print will bring out your inner niceness! That’s because it’s considered a neutral and goes with every color and texture. I have a major crush on snake print skirts and pants. Wear them now with a sweater and booties. In a few months, wear them with a white blouse tied at the waist and sandals….twice as nice!
I don’t know about you, but I love how being “nice” has its perks! And one more thing….don’t forget to “have a nice day!”
