Oops! I belted again.

Okay, yeah, there’s nothing “oops” about belting. You guys should just recognize by now that I can never pass up an opportunity for a lame post title.

Anyway, I tried a belted cardigan for the first time on Tuesday and love, love, loved the way it looked. I do jeans and a cardigan all the time, but belting it just made it look so much more mature, which is always something I aim for.

Yesterday, I needed a classy outfit to wear on a job assignment, and it was too windy for a dress or a skirt. I had forgotten about this cardigan — bought on clearance at Banana Republic around Christmas, worn the first week of the semester — but I found it again and decided to give it a go. Last time I wore it, I put it with jeans, a gray tank and black wedges. This time, I wanted to give my brown wedges a day out, because I rarely wear them, so I went with a brown tank, too. And when I remembered that I own a skinny brown belt? Well. I just had to belt it.

Some parts of this still threw me off a bit — can I match my belt to my tank top? am I wearing the belt too high? — but for the most part I was really pleased with the way it turned out. I didn’t know if the belting would work with the sweater — you can’t really tell, but it has these chiffon-ish rose-ish things around the top and edges — but it did! Cheers.

Looks like I’m going to need to go cardigan-shopping. And belt-shopping. Uh oh….

    Oh! I remember that cardigan! I loved the navy & black version. 😉

    “can I match my belt to my tank top?” – Heck yeah you can…and you did…and it looks fantastic!

    “am I wearing the belt too high?” – I prefer mine a little lower, but that’s because I have a short torso & like the lengthening effect. Play around with belt placement & you should find your sweet spot.

    I forgot to answer your question about my Missouri pics. I took them in Dexter. It’s a pretty tiny town, so I doubt your school is near it though!
