Day Five - Just Belt It!

It's Day 5 of the 21 Day Challenge and today Kayla is calling for us to belt it! You know, not all that long ago, I only owned one belt. And it was black. And it was the kind that would only work on a pair of jeans. And I rarely ever wore it. Now, I don't even know how many belts I own. I have skinny ones, chunky ones, multi-colored ones, bright ones, brown ones, braided ones, and the list goes on and on.  Crazy how things change, isn't it?

Dress, Cardi & Belt: Target
Shoes: 6pm.com
Bracelet: Thrifted
Necklace: Borrowed from my Sister
Flower Clip: Flapper Fashions


It's Friday, friends!! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? My mother-in-law is coming in town and staying with us, so we're planning to do a little thrifting in the morning while the hubs does his 1/2 ironman training. Then we're all heading over to my niece's 3rd birthday party! I love fun family stuff!

If you want to see how the other participants are belting it today, go HERE! And if you want to enter my giveaway (today's your last chance!!), then go HERE! I'll be picking a winner tomorrow!!

This is a great outfit and similar to you...4 months ago, I owned only 1 belt...in black as well and I rarely wore it! Now I think I may have a belt hoarding issue and love sifting through my Mom's 80s vintage collection! So much as changed..and change is good! Happy Friday!

I love the belt over the cardigan! It's so cute, especially with the flower! Also, your pattern mixing was the bomb (yes, I still say that). Zebra and florals? Beautiful!

I love the cardi and belting it made it look great!! I can TOTALLY relate to going from owning from one belt to 15! crazy, right? but they really help make/break an outfit.

Beautifully done! I think I'll have to try a cardigan over a shirt dress sometime during this challenge. It looks great!

I had to start laughing because I used to only own three belts and now I own, well, a lot! I even just purchased several more today at a vintage store:)

Love the belted sweater!

I've become belt-crazy too since I've started blogging. Although I'm not great at remembering to use them. :)

Tara said...

Yes, that's what I've picked up from blogging...new friends, the ability to tuck in a shirt, and a ton of new belts. Totally worth it :)

I like the idea of turning a regular belt into a flowered belt like that...I may have to snag that idea, myself!

Kish said...

You've got belts, and you know how to use them! haha....

You look so cute in this outfit. This is one of my favorite pairs of your shoes (in addition to those Nine West heels)! The accessories totally make this one!

So cute. I love belting. And I love seeing all of the Target finds. You have such a great and relatable style.
