Double Belt It
This chambray shirt was one of the best fall-into-winter-definitely-into-spring-and-beyond purchases that I have ever made. My only complaint is that since I've lost so much weight, its kinda big and either has to be worn belted or with something over it to reign it in...but that's the best kinda complaint, right?! When I first got it I didn't think that I could wear it "Southern Tuxedo" style...you know, denim on denim (totally not ok usually...) but I have since changed my mind. I think it has to do with the washes of the denim. The skirt's dark wash is a good balance for the medium-light wash of the chambray. Anyways, I think it works...thoughts?
So...back to the belting. I saw this double belting look in one of the J.CREW fall catalogues and immediatley LOVED it. It looks complicated but it's actually really easy. I twisted the belts in the back and belted the pink end into the green buckle and vice versa. My pink beret matched the pink belt perfectly and you know me...I love matchy matchy! Hmm, maybe I love it too much...I think that I need to work on that for the new year, breaking out of my matchy matchy shell and mixing it up a bit more.
