The Woes of Triple Belting

Top: Buffalo Exchange  |  Cardi: H&M  |  Jeans: NY&Co.  |  Belts: H&M  |  Sandals: Target

Day 7 of Kayla's 21 Day Challenge was to layer accessories.  I've done this before with jewelry, so this time I wanted to try it with belts.  This was difficult for me for a couple of reasons:

#1 - It took a while to figure out which of belts could/should be layered.  I finally landed on using belts of similar width, and my best option was a pack of belts I bought H&M.  They also happened to go with the top I was wearing, which is the top I have to remix from Day 1.  Score!


#2 - Probably the more difficult thing was that wearing three belts meant I couldn't breathe or eat.  At first I convinced myself that breathing was overrated, especially since I got complimented on my belts at church, but when the belts hindered my eating, they had to go.  It was fun to try, and I still might do it again, but nothing gets between me and lunch.

  1. Hey, at least they looked cute...breathing is one thing, but eating is a whole different story. :) I've been wanting to get one of those double wrap belts that wrap around your waist twice before belting. I never thought of layering belts for the same type of look. I might just have to try it (on a day when I don't have to eat of course).

  2. Ha that's funny! The belts are cute though and I liked that they were skinny belts.

  4. I would never have thought of this, but it looks amazing!  I'm going to need to try it (although, I have to agree with you about the lunch thing--there's not much that can make me skip a meal)!

  5. LOL at #2!  Sometimes I feel the same way, if the belt looks good with the outfit I won't care about that other stuff, i.e. breathing and eating.  I really like that top with the purple cardigan.

  8. Hahahaa you are so cute (you and your ;unch). That top is cute and a great remixer for your wardrobe. Love the adorable, pastel skinny belts, too. I have once purchased a 3-pack (black, red & gold) skinny belts. But come to think of it I have no idea where they are now! =(
