Day 4: Denim Day

I love a great pair of jeans, but today I felt like spicing things up and went for the denim dress.  The sweetheart cut is especially flattering and the flower detail at the rim of the dress made the piece look extra girly. I paired both looks with a chocolate colored belt and nude shoes to elongate my legs and only swapped added one item to change the look.  The sunglasses add a bit more edgy while the cardigan added the needed coverage for an office appropriate attire.  Voila! What do you think?

Summary of Today's Tips
