Belted Brilliance


     I feel like I've made it my life mission to belt everything this summer! Well....maybe not everything, but somehow each time I'm ready to walk out the door, I always wonder if a belt could make it all better. And though my outfit doesn't always end up all better with a belt, I usually leave smiling because at least I tried. So, here are a few ways on how I've been belting it up when I'm not in my coach gear (neon green, thats where the love stems from).

Belted Brilliance

Outfit #1: I love the idea of belting a dress! I saw someone wearing a gorgeous lace dress with this really cool hook belt and I was hooked on the style. I really like the idea of wearing a fitted shirt over a dress, and then adding a belt over both of them. It looks really cool, and it's just a fun twist on a simple trend. If it's too hot or you're not one for the shirt, you can always skip it and just belt your dress. Pair it with a unique tote bag and a cute pair of floral brogues.

Outfit #2: I've also begun to tuck in my tops a lot, especially when I wear blouses or tight fitting t-shirts. For this look, I had the idea to wear a blouse tucked into a skirt, then simply put the belt over the skirt. It just looks so cute together, especially if the belt is neutral and on top of a skirt that is colored. I usually pair the outfit with some sandals, bracelets or bangles, and a cool bag.

Outfit #3: Following in the footsteps of my favorite colored shorts, I've begun to pair them with neutral or dark colored tops and shirts. And then following in the second footsteps on tucking them in, I've also begun to front-tuck! I'm not sure if that's a real word, but we can go with it from here. I love front-tucking , and I wear a belt with my shorts, so the belt just peaks out where I've tucked in my shirt. I think it looks really cool, especially if the belt is colored too, or even if it's neutral because then it pops even more! It'd look even better with a pair of colorful flats and a cute little bag.

Have you been belting this summer?
