#StyleMeMarch: Belt It

Today’s challenge – Belt It!

So, I belted it.

Jacket – The Limited, Blouse – The Limited, Belt – The Limited, Jewelry – New York and Company, Pants – Calvin Klein, Shoes – Zinc via DSW

Today was pretty warm so much of the day I actually wore this.

I like how the belt really tied together the jacket to the outfit. I also liked how it made the navy and orange much more springy in feel without the jacket.

So this weekend I didn’t post the challenge photos. I may try and get them up later this week.

What do you think? Does this belt make the outfit work?

The Winter Edition 10 Day Challenge {Day 2 – Monochrome}

For today’s rendition of the Winter Edition 10 Day Challenge hosted by Freckles in April – we are going monochrome!

I usually stay safe and go black or just go monochromatic with only half of my body. Today I wanted to try cream/light brown. I really like how the different textures, and patterns added a lot of interest to my outfit even though it was monochrome.

I also loved that since I was wearing wool pants – they were lined with this silky material. So basically I had silky-ness touching all of me. AWESOME!!

I also really love love love these shoes. They have a cute wooden button detail. A fun chunky stacked wooden heel, and textured leather. They look awesome with a skirt or dress. I will have to showcase them soon.

Don’t forget to check out all of the other fun challenge participants. I was blown away yesterday with all the fun layering and have ideas of things that I want to try.
