how-to-dress-up-a-dress My name is Rachel and I blog over at Garay Treasures, and I am honored to be guest posting for Monica today. I am a fashion and lifestyle blog that mixes fashion, my daily life and my love for the Lord Jesus Christ. I blog because I have a passion to inspire and be inspired myself. Through my blog and meeting so many people who inspire me I have felt truly blessed. I have known and collaborated with Monica for over a year now and I am amazed by her outlook on life. She loves to highlight the good and bad in her life (mostly good) and she is a fun, stylish and sweet woman. I thank Monica for having me today as I share with you ways to dress up your dresses. As I mentioned in the last sentence above I am going to share with you some ways to dress up your dresses. Before I share my tips I want to let you know two things. Number one: I am not a "get all dolled and dressed up" kind of girl, most of the time. I do like to get dressed up for certain dates with my hubby, or to church on Sundays here and there. Number two: because I don' get dressed up often I tend to invest and wear the same heels or carry the same handbags over and over again. I love the way a good polished, dressed up look makes me feel, but realistically with four kids and no "office" or "professional" job at the moment getting all dressed up is saved for special occasions. So below I highlight a few ways to dress up a dress. 1). Add Heels. Below I added some colorful heels to compliment the colorful display of this pastel pink t-shirt dress.   pink-t-shirt-dress-shabby-apple-glamorized Outfit details: Pink T-Shirt dress: Shabby Apple, similar//Scarf: My Sisters Closet Boutique, similar//Heels: similar//Bracelet: c/o My Arm Charms//Purse: Michael Michael Kors, similar//Earrings: Kendra Scott, same//Bangle: Charlotte Russe, part of set, similar.

2). Add Bold or Colorful Accessories. About a year ago I added pink accessories to my Little Black Dress and it made for a nice date night outfit, that wasn't typical of the "wear pearls with a Little Black Dress" we normally see.

3).Add a clutch. This is something new to me as I don't normally need a clutch. Once again, I am a mom and a tote or handbag does the trick for me, but for the sake of a date night look or special event a clutch does the trick without hauling a big bag around.
