I thrifted this belt a few weeks ago, and I must admit, it was one of the trickiest belts to figure out how to put on! I was convinced it was broken or missing something until the revelation that I must twist the ends around each other occurred.
This was also another of my super awesome $10 TJMaxx finds with a 'back problem'. Even with one of those bras that converts to a lower back, the straps would still peek in through the cutout - so I filled it in with lace.
Yesterday, according to weather.com, was the hottest day in May in Connecticut since 2006. How crazy is that? At one point when I looked at the thermometer, it actually said 100 degrees, so you can image how much I hated taking photos with that blazer on! (it was for work, where it's cold).

The obvious response to an all black day is an all white day, which proved to be much harder, and I don't like this outfit nearly as much. Looking to texture, I chose a cotton eyelet skirt and sheer sequined vest.
This skirt is just a bit too long!! And I think I need a more substantial shoe to balance out the fullness of it.
I was having another late morning because I had to iron the skirt (since I didn't bother ironing anything that I took out of storage when I did my closet switch) and then my belt was too big to be worn at my waist, so I was attacking it with an exacto knife and boring a new hole into it while trying to drink my coffee. It's not pretty, but it does the job!
This little vest needs to come out and play more often. She was a birthday gift from a friend, and probably not something I would have chosen myself, but she's really quite cute.
While I'm not normally into matching, I loved the fact that the bows on my sandals matched the bow on the belt perfectly!
