60- and 70-degree temperatures here in Denver lately have me feeling some type of way. Patios and rooftops are already in full swing, which is unheard of for this time of year. I keep telling people not to get TOO excited, as we usually see loads of snow in March and April, but I myself can't help but look forward to longer and warmer days. I wore this leg-baring outfit to work the other day (I've actually been baring my legs a lot recently, which is a nice reprieve from restricting jeans, tights and boots). Blue is probably my favorite color, so I love color-blocking the hue and adding some browns and camel colors to make it a bit more seasonally appropriate. Keep reading for two little outfit "hacks" that I use on the reg!

To get this fun looped belt look, see below!

1. Buckle your belt like normal, wherever is comfortable for you.
2. Bring the strap through the loop, as normal, but leave lots of strap loose (the tail).
3. Put the tail of the strap under the strap that is around your waist, pull through but leave it a bit loose with a hole in the middle.
4. Bring the remaining tail up and through the hole that you left and pull tight!

How sweet is this ALEX AND ANI bracelet that a friend sent me for Valentine's Day? Best part is, it's part of their partnership with RED to help fight AIDS. ALEX AND ANI will contribute 20% of the purchase price from each Kindred Cord (RED)® Heart sold, with a minimum contribution of $25,000 between February 2016 and December 2016, to the Global Fund to fight AIDS with (RED)®. Win, win.

Here is a little trick to get your rolled sleeves to stay rolled, plus it looks super cute!

1. Fold the entire bottom of the sleeve up to just above your elbow.
2. Take the bottom of that fold and fold it up again, leaving some of the end of the sleeve exposed.
3. Adjust so that it lays flat and is comfortable.
4. Voila! You have a cute ruffled look and your sleeve will stay up all day!
