{style inspiration: knotted belt}


. . . have an inordinate amount of cardigans, from lightweight and summery to cozy and cashmere, hand-embroidered and trimmed in velvet ribbon to embellished with crystal fasteners or mother-of-pearl buttons; perfect for any season and any weather, and nearly always layered over bow blouses, silky camisoles, or the softest brushed cotton . . . but suddenly quite smitten with the idea of wearing them on their own, buttoned and belted in a simple and easy sophistication . . .

{p.s.} the belt is from asos

Wonder how she tied her belt like that? I always have that awkward dangly piece and could never figure out what to do with it. Just tcked it in the side, but this looks wayyy better.

Since i saw some very inspiring pics of superslim belts worn over open-left casual cardigans, i started playing with them too....
I love them with prints, with bows, in metallic or with some flowers on them... they are super-chic accessories... "statement-pieces"... but very decent, though...



ps.: love the way you write! It's just amazing! It's so inspiring... every sentence you make is a little masterpiece... honestly, WOW! wish i will once write the way yo do...
