Casual outfits make up the bulk of our wardrobes. These are the clothes we live in because they are easy and comfortable. But, just because an outfit is casual does not mean it can’t be stylish as well. Accessories elevate casual outfits to make them look finished and polished.
I had the whole family together for a few days in December and new family pictures topped my to-do list. It may be a year ahead of schedule, but this mama was going to make sure I had some good family photos for next year’s Christmas card!
I had the photographer snap a few solo shots of me while we were out. I’ve got to make the most of those hair-fixed and makeup-on moments; especially when I have a professional photographer around!
Typically, casual outfits are not elaborate; often consisting of a few pieces. This simple outfit has a top, wide-legged cropped pants and shoes..easy peasy. But, it just takes a few accessories to pull the look together…in this case, I use a belt and jewelry.
I realize my love for belts it’s not shared by all. In fact, I’ve met quite a few women who shun them altogether because they say that they draw too much attention to their mid-section.
Now, I do agree with this viewpoint when the belt is just wrapped around the middle as an afterthought, because belts do have a tendency to shout, “look right here!” However, I believe a belt can add a nice finish to an outfit when worn the right way. I often use a belt in conjunction with a partial tuck.

While belts may be debatable fashion accessories, there’s another belt that we just can’t afford to go without. God’s Word says to…
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist…
Everybody’s got an opinion these days and it’s easy to lose the truth in the mix. That’s why we must continue to go back to the unchanging bedrock of God’s Word. This is what ultimately keeps us anchored and secure.
