36. Shades

 
 
This is little black dress look #7, the final look of the Dress for Change series!

Dress: American Eagle // Belt: Forever 21 // Sunglasses: Forever 21 // Shoes: Target
 
This is the last day of Dress for Change week, so I wanted to show off the full dress and keep the accessories simple. I wore a thick belt with several shades of grey and added a pop of color with bright blue wedges. I also decided to sport my aviator shades because it was beautifully sunny outside today. I am so happy that the warm weather will be staying for a while--I will hopefully start photographing outdoors again!
 
I also want to thank my friend Sheyanne, the creator of the Dress for Change project. It is truly amazing that for every Dress for Change participant, Sheyanne will be making a dress to be given to a girl in Africa.

35. Show the Lights

Dress (worn as top): American Eagle // Skirt: Forever 21 // Jacket: H&M // Shoes: Charles by Charles David
 
 
I rolled my dress up into a crop top for the second-last look of Dress for Change Week. Since it is a pretty thin dress, it was an easy change. Plus, the jacket covers up any lumpiness in the back of the new top. I love the result!

Dress: American Eagle // Scarf: Forever 21 // Belt: Forever 21 // Shoes: Sam Edelman for American Eagle
 
The temperature outside is finally warming up around here, so I celebrated by not wearing a jacket! I also pulled out one of my favorite lightweight scarves--it has gorgeous iridescent threads woven into the light pink color. When I bought it, it reminded me of the scarf from the first episode of Hannah Montana (proceed to make fun of me).
I added a bit more color by tying a coral belt around my waist. Whenever a belt is too long for me, I wrap the extra around the front to create a braided texture. The twisted belt looked perfect with my twisted, braided hair!

I kept this look simple for a night out to dinner with basic black pumps and a string of pearls around my neck. Never underestimate the power of a little black dress!

Dress: American Eagle // Top: Gap // Shoes: Target // Scarf: thrifted // Bracelet: Brandy Melville
 
This is my rainy-day outfit...plus an umbrella, of course! To splash in the wet puddles, I threw on my  lovely little half-rain boots. I adore the gold button details on their sides.
Despite my weather-proof outfit, I am still wishing the rain to go away and come again another day :)

31. Over the Moon

 
This is little black dress look #2, part of the Dress for Change series!

Dress: American Eagle // Top: Brandy Melville // Shoes: Target // Belt: Forever 21
 
I loved pairing this black moon tank over my dress for an edgier look. Belting a shirt on top of a dress is a simple way to make the dress feel new again.

Dress: American Eagle // Tights: Oasap // Shoes: Sperry Top-Sider // Belt: Forever 21 // Purse: unknown
 
This look is super girly and fun! I loved pairing the heart-printed tights with the bright pink belt.
The little floral clutch adds a quirky, interesting aspect to the outfit. My mom bought it in Japan when she was traveling there for work. Its pretty flowers and silky texture made me fall in love with it at first sight!
