Oh so NOT matronly.

With all of the floral out there right now... some of which is fab-U-lous, like these 3 Reem Acra floral dresses, there might be some of you who still think of floral print on dresses and skirts, even purses now too, as matronly or something that you always saw grandma wearing. A great way to add some instant style to this look, vamp it up a little and create a look that does not feel as if you are wearing a curtain, so to speak, is by adding a belt. I have posted some inspiration for those of you who may be struggling with this trend. Remember that belts themselves have so many looks and styles...... so have fun playing around and creating some style of your own with these dresses and skirts. They are so hot right now, why not be to??

This dress does look more 'girly'especially with the pleated skirt, but the silk bow belt gives it the right touch, turning it into something I would look twice at.

Showing off the waist line will definitely create some sliming, and I also love that this dress is put together with another pattern.

The wrap skirt almost always looks nice with a floral print.
Both of these are something so wearable to a weekend afternoon get-together.

Not so much for belts?? Go with something that has a drawstring in it like this lovely.

** Playing up your make up, or jewelry, or by wearing a smokin' pair of heels is a great way to feel extra sexy in these styles.

Have a blessed weekend!!!
