OOTD: Belt It and Go

April 7, 2011

I have a lot of days where I am rushing out of the house to school, and there’s barely any time to sift through my clothes, let alone pick out a newly mixed outfit. I’ve never been one of these people where an outfit strikes me instantly; I try things on, change it, change it again, and then (hopefully) come to a new outfit. So there are days when I just grab some simple items and accessories and scoot on out the door.

Today was one of those days.

I had a really long top from Old Navy, which is more Rose-Purple than Barney-Purple in real-life, so to make my outfit a bit more interesting I put on a braided belt by Torrid. Although the picture diminishes it, there’s a good bit of draping up top, and I really loved the different shape a simple belt created. The shirt when from a t-shirt to a top (at least, in my head), because the new style wasn’t so basic.

Excuse the dust spot on this pic. I really loved adding this belt, and since it was a bit long I looped it like I’ve seen in countless fashion ads.

I added on these bangles that I got at Avenue and earrings from ASOS.

Lola girl was standing by to watch over me :).

I was pretty happy with how easily this outfit looked put together in a short period of time. Simple articles of clothing can be made more interesting with the right accessories or worn in unexpected ways.

How do you dress up your outfits when you’re in a rush?

      Thanks Crystal! I tend to wear a lot of the basics over and over again because I’m always running late. I need to get better about planning outfits.

    LOVE the purple and LOVE the outfit! Believe you me, I am no where near this polished when I am in a rush – in fact, to take my CoCo for a brief neighborhood walk today, I threw on clothes I didn’t even like how they went together and couldn’t wait to get them off of me! That’s why I like reading blogs like yours – the BEST IDEAS :> I really, REALLY want to stop wearing clothes that I can also sleep in – too much a sign of depression ;-

      I’m only put together when I’m meeting the world outside of my neighborhood. I’ve definitely walked my dog in Christmas pjs and a mix mash of t-shirt and shoes :).
