Belted Blazer

Belting a blazer has always seemed a bit tricky to me. There’s a fine line between chic definition and a rumpled, cinched mess. I’m treading it today.


Blazer, Focus 2000 (thrifted). Dress, Merona. Orange slip, thrifted. Belt, gift. Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Miz Mooz. Necklace, Macy’s. Bag, Nine West.

i do agree that belting blazers is tricky and it does look a tad rumpled but i like that the color breaks up the dark colors. :)

I don't know if that is an anchor pin, or blazer. I have a thing for aanchors, and it looks amazing. I think your belt looks great, and not too cinched. I had the same problem this morning with my cardigan.

OMG, you did not! You're wearing an orange belt with green tights and green boots. I think I just fell in love. <3!!!

OMG - I so want those tights! Love the green and blue colour block combination. I have a stripey top that it blue and green, but would never have thought to wear the two colours this way - the brown def. works to off set the mix.

Because of you, I am now on a mission to find green boots! I also love the skirt!

My Heart Blogged: The anchor is embroidered on the blazer. I love it!

This looks really good. The belt seems to give it a POP of orange which I love. Very put together :)

I really like your blog more than most because you're not just a girl putting on a cute dress/skirt/blouse/whatever and taking a picture. You show creative ways of restyling basic pieces, daring uses of color and patterns, and you always seem to wear things that you feel comfortable in - looks that represent you. That, to me, is what everyday fashion blogging should be about. Thanks Kasmira! You rock ...

I love those boots! I am buying some now--to endless! What an amazing look!

This is the first time I've said this about one of your outfits, but I'm not feelin' that belt. I love the idea of it, the color, and how it goes with the outfit- but the size of the belt itself- not so much. It rumples the gorgeous blazer, competes with the buttons, and covers up the tops of the pockets- all of which are gorgeous and deserve to be seen! Maybe if it was a tad thinner/smaller? Maybe it's just me.
And did you get a haircut? I love your bangs!

ReaderRita - I'm so bored with my hair, so I had some bangs cut in last week. It was bangs or a pixie cut and Beefy really likes long hair...

ReaderRita said...

Well, from a follower's point of view- your hair looks GREAT, and I love the bangs! Covetable!
I am growing my pixie out into a shag (Hello, 1970's!) and am bored to death with it, so I can totally empathize. My stylist suggested I get some different products and implements so as to experiment and freshen my brain about it...
So far it's been fun!
