5 Steps to Simple Beauty

Wow! You look really pretty today!

Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make us look beautiful...

Coming back late from a wedding out of town and oversleeping... meant that I was creative with my morning outfit. I choose some simple black stretch pants, a black semi-fancy tee, and a pink sweater (open because it really doesn’t fit well when buttoned). Then I chose some white flower wedges, because all my other shoes were packed.

It was simple, but had a neat, clean look.  

#1 Find a pair basic black pants - this can be the base for outfits

#2 Find a simple white or black shirt that looks flattering

#3 Add a flair of color - this can be a necklace, sweater, scarf...

#4 Look through your closet for neglected items... amidst all our stuff we can forget about some great clothes.

#5 Wear all your different shoes... I tend to buy a pair of shoes, and wear them everyday until they break. Compared to some, I do not have that many pairs of shoes... But I need to remember to mix it up.

Bonus: Be confident and smile! Our attitude is the most radiating thing. A smile can transform any outfit into brilliance!

How do you dress simply beautiful?


  1. Wow, you look great! I found you at Let's Connect Thursday on Design Decor. I wanna read your book - perhaps I could review it on my blog?
