Sometimes, I feel like an outfit just doesn’t need a belt and that adding one would detract from the outfit. This shirt has a very boho-y feeling to it and I feel like if you put a belt with it, it would have the opposite effect. Now, look at the picture and imagine a belt with it, you see what I’m saying? The shirt is actually very long- it could even be used as a cover up. But, you’d never know it with it tucked in. I love to change the look of shirts in my closet just by tucking them in. Even the ones, like this one, that I wouldn’t normally think to tuck in.
I do have a trick when I tuck in. I like to tuck most of the fluff in the back so the front has less fabric. This way, you’re still showing a waist line and adding less bulk to the front.
Now, let’s be clear, there are certainly days that I do NOT feel like tucking my shirt in! But, this day I was on a day date with my husband (yes, this is getting dressed up to me- ha!). I don’t chase toddlers very well in wedges. I have friends that have perfected it, but I am not that coordinated. After all, I did try out for cheerleading four time in HS and never made the squad!
I kinda really like my new “dress up shoes”, so I wanted to show you! Just in case you’re looking for some :). I’m thinking I will be wearing these with every maxi/sundress in the summer.

Super cute… I tuck in my shirt all the time! Especially when I’m wearing flair jeans… it just seems to help balance everything…
Love the entire look!

No belt all the way and love the tuck in trick!
I do love how that looks on you, but I always feel unfinished without a belt if my shirt is tucked in. hm. Must mess around with this look and see. I have a beautiful tunic that I love, but I’m not sure I’m the tunic type, so I’d like to tuck it in.
Love the shirt and shoes! Any suggestions on business/business casual outfits or great sites to visit?
oooh, ive been eyeing that blouse at jcrew! so pretty on you & i love that you tucked them in!
