Sunday morning, my roommates and I headed down to our final event for SBSCon, the Farewell Brunch hosted by Hallmark.   I kind of feel like coming from Houston, we know how to brunch.  It is a weekend staple down here!  Almost all restaurants have a special brunch menu in Houston.  The final morning was all about snapping last minute photos, drinking lots of coffee, and meeting a few more bloggers, but more on that in a future post. 🙂  I wore lots of bright colors over the weekend, so I wanted to end on a bright note.  You may not believe me, but I have worn this dress on the blog before!  Even my photographer sister did not recognize it at first! I think this is an example of what a difference a belt makes!  I fell in love with this BCBG belt at an event in May, and quickly swiped it up.  I love BCBG clothes and shoes, but their belts are my favorite thing from them. They can take something like a boring black belt, and make it fabulous and still everyday wearable.  I have been searching for a nude belt for awhile now, and I love the silver chevron detail on this one.  I created a fun little shop widget below with some of my current faves from them.  I love that you can just add a belt to a dress and completely transform it to a whole new look!  Check below in my restyled and remixed section to see the last time I wore this dress sans belt to really see the dramatic difference.  If you are looking for a new way to wear some of your favorite shift dresses, it may be time to invest in a few good belts!

On a shopping note, this dress is sold out in this color, but there are other fun colors still available including hot pink and lilac.  The dress runs a bit big, so you may consider sizing down.  Also, my Elaine Turner clutch is officially sold out, but I linked two other similar styles and both are on sale this weekend!

Happy Friday and  Happy (almost) 4th of July!!  Stay safe, wear sunscreen, and have a fabulous holiday!!
