This is a belated “Belt Week” outfit that I had been meaning to wear, but didn’t get around to until today. Despite the fact that it is a full week into March, it still feels like we are firmly in winter at the moment, and so this cashmere dress is getting another outing before spring really comes to New England. I found this dress on super sale at an outlet and it is by far my favorite fall/winter dress because it is so cozy and warm. After a week of aggressive belting my waist was pretty tired, and I wanted to try what E. called “surrendering the waist”… but I didn’t quite get there. I did, however, surrender the tights after I had gotten into my classroom and realized that I was experiencing what Sal of Already Pretty calls “Segmented Worm Syndrome” with my present outfit and needed to let something go.
My full slip, which I wore over my shirt, managed to hold down the tails of the shirt and also give me some more piece of mind about going bare legged when I really hadn’t planned on it. I know if I had stepped outside I would have frozen from the waist down, but I just couldn’t wait until spring break! Anyway, the belting for this is something I’ve wanted to try since I went nuts at J. Crew this fall and bought several of their skinny belts on sale that I had been holding out for. I connected my silver and gold ones for this and let them naturally cross in the front and hang lower on my hips than I usually do.
I wore both gold and silver jewelry as well as silver shoes to complete this very simple outfit. I really like how the double belting worked out and I’d love to know how others have incorporated multiple belts into one outfit?
