2012 is going to be Year of the Black Skinny Belt, I think. It’s my default make-things-look-nicer trick and while it works, I’m already kind of tired of it. Solution: get more skinny belts? Perhaps in colors?
Omnipresent belt aside, I’m pretty proud of this look. The black belt on the light sweater seems to pop more than it did the last time I used it, although that could be because this color scheme is more uniform. Plus the line created by the pants versus a skirt is maybe more compatible for a waist belt like that. I also like the neckline and I like that it’s not a white cami underneath everything.
This outfit had the extra bonus of having unintentional sentimental value. The necklace was given to me by my secret “sister” when I first joined my sorority, and the earrings were a gift from my friend who’s in Spain.
