Following up on our lovely staycation in Alexandria, here’s what I wore for my little shopping excursion in Old Town. I hit up TSALT (one of my favorites from the Alexandria Boutique Warehouse Sale) and found these fabulous Frame jeans on sale! I’ve heard such good things about this denim line (especially for long-legged persons like myself) and they totally lived up to the hype. As for what I wore, well, you might have noticed I was feeling the nautical stripes vibes all weekend, but I thought it would be fun to spice up this simple swing dress with a corset belt. I’m a huge advocate of using statement belts to breathe new life into old pieces, so I’m definitely loving this trend right now. What about you? Are you a fan of lace-up belts?

Love how you added the belt! It really changes up the stripes. I have heard great things about Frame denim as well, but I haven’t been anywhere that sells it to try it on. I am glad to hear from a fellow long legged lady that it lives up to the hype. I might need to order some online.

Yea, I love FRAME jeans! I only have one pair now but I’m itching for more! I bought a ‘cropped’ pair and they’re perfect for my short legs, haha!
And those mules….such a great color and texture!

I’m a big fan of corset belts! They allow you to get a fit that actually suits you instead of predetermined hole punches in a standard belt!
