I made this belt ages ago after seeing a similar one on Etsy. My first thought was, "I can actually do that!" Afterwards it sat around. I wasn't quite sure how to wear it. I saw it sitting in my closet and pulled it out a while ago determined to try and wear it. By pairing the belt with coordinating colors I hope I made it work! It draws the red in the tights upward to the rest of the outfit and pulls all the pieces together. I really think I need to wear it more. I see statement necklaces everyday, but a statement belt is a bit more unique! Is a DIY on this something you'd like to see?

Cynthia from My Rose Colored Shades is co-hosting this week. She exudes elegance, style, and class. I wish I could look like that half the time I get dressed. I would even settle for a quarter of the time! Cynthia shares delicious recipes, beauty and fitness posts, and more. Make sure you go visit her!

  15. I love the whole look, especially the red tights. I'm a huge fan of cored tights.

  16. Well, you also exude elegance, style and class in this fine outfit. The belt adds so much more to this pretty outfit. But I agree Cynthia's style is lovely and so is her blog in general. She does it all - super mom. That belt is something I can actually do. I think I have an idea how but I personally would love a DIY. I do have (store-bought) a couple of statement belts actually. Is that a ribbon for the sash part of the belt, like a grossgrain ribbon?

  25. I have a similar dress - more off white to cream - and I love to use it as a basis for coloured tights. You've really cracked it with this shade of red - and they mean you can wear black boots with a white dress too! Kx

  28. Gorgeous look, Laura! I love the belt with the red tights. You DIY'd that? Omg, please post a step by step! I've been trying my hand at belts lately too but it's SO much harder than it seems.

    You made that rosette belt? I am in love! So pretty and frilly and girly for Valentine's Day! I really like the colored tights, they go great with this otherwise neutral outfit.

  30. So I've had red tights for a few years now and barely wear them, but you're definitely making me reconsider with these knock out looks!

  31. What a cute belt! I am so impressed that you made it yourself!

  32. Thank you so much! It's super easy and cost like $5! I'll have to get a DIY post put together!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you! It was one of my few sewing projects. It took quite a while to figure it out, but I love it now! :)

  34. Absolutely lovely look -- and belt! I agree, it works so perfectly with this outfit and tying in the red from the tights.

  35. The belt is so pretty! I totally get the styling conundrum, it seems like the kind of piece that will only really work well with a dress.

  41. Such a fun outfit, Laura! I really like the belt (I probably couldn't get away with something like it, but I love it on you!!). I have a white lacy dress that I've been saving for the spring, but this outfit is making me think that I should probably give it some love during the winter!
