Style Peek: Black and White and Citrus All Over

Hello friends! How are you doing today? The weather is starting to look up here so I thought I would help it along with some bright colours today.

Remember that go-to summer dress I raved about a while back - well I decided today was a good day to wear it. But it's still a wee bit cool so some black leggings underneath kept me toasty. I topped it with a super bright coral cardigan and then toned down the bright with a brown braided belt and brown flats. I love the colour combo!

Okay, confession time. I watched 'What not to wear' for years and I always cringed when Stacy London would tell the apple-body shapes, like mine :( to belt their outfits. I'm most self-concious of that area so I would rebel and wear loose tops - they're still my fave. But truth is, when I look at these pics, I know she is right. Belted does look better! Thanks Stacy, you were right all along!

I took these pics this morning before work and can I say - I've loving that light!! This may have to be part of my routine...

So I'm pretty new to leggings, but they seem to be here to stay. Even my mom was asking about wearing them and my sister and I hummed and hawed, but under a dress I think they're just adorable! Plus I'm tall so it makes it easy for me to wear shorter dresses.

Give it to me straight friends - do you like leggings? Or is there an age limit to this one?
