Sometimes everything just clicks
Take this belt, for example. Now, I only ever wear belts for one reason: to keep my trousers in place. I’ve yet to find a pair of trousers with the waist-hip ratio to comfortably accommodate my body. A belt is what keeps me from constantly pulling my trousers up…
But back to this belt… I bought it in Barcelona in June, with no idea what to wear it with. I thought maybe I could use it to create a waist in one of those sack-like sundresses the shops are full of (I was getting a bit desperate at that point, not finding any dresses I liked). Of course, I really hate wearing a belt (or anything tight and close to body) in hot weather, so that’s probably one of those ideas that seems good in theory but doesn’t really work in practice.
And then I saw this denim dress, on sale no less, and I knew immediately that it was meant for this belt. So yes, I bought the dress to match it to a belt I already had… Oh well, why not? Of course, it didn’t hurt that I also had just the perfect pair of leopard print sunglasses to complete the outfit…
