Yellow cardi, Mossimo. Navy tank, Merona. Khaki slacks, Moda International. Seashell necklace, thrifted. Brown braided leather belt, Wilson’s Leather. Yellow pumps, Victoria Spenser.
After looking at the first few photos I took of myself this morning, I realized that this outfit needed a belt to break up the expanse of navy fabric. It would also come in handy to camouflage the lumps of my pants’ waistband underneath the tank. A belt in the usual spot (natural waist) would have competed with the hemline of my cardigan and emphasized the pants bumps. So, I found myself wearing a belt much lower than I have in the past few months – at bellybutton height instead of just beneath my ribs. I love it. Maybe the ladies on Pattern Review, dissing the cinched look, have a point.
So your belly button isn't just beneath your ribs?! Woe is me with the short torso. :-( I've been a lurker for a while now ut i flet I may as well leave the occassional comment.
Well, then, maybe my torso isn't as short as I thought!
I like the shoes. I don't normally wear any yellow because it doesn't usually work well with my fair skin tone, but I'm pretty sure that I could pull it off if I tried it like in your outfit, far enough from my face and balanced out by other colors.
Thanks for the inspiration.
