OOTD: May 6, 2009

I have been trying to get up the nerve to do the belted look for a couple weeks now.  I've been buying cute belts all spring, being inspired by the belted trend that's going on right now.  So today, I finally got down to it.  I initially thought about pairing this top with a pale pink long cardi, but opted for the black one in the end.  I also went back and forth between this black belt, and a skinny pink metallic one.  Today I'm wearing:

  • Editor pants in black (Express)
  • Empire-waist tank in a bright pink pattern (Banana Republic Outlet)
  • Michelle merino V-neck cardigan in black (J.Crew)
  • Wide belt in black (Target)
  • Judy round toe pumps - 3" (Payless)

That works. They look good. How do the Payless pumps feel? I have never worn any for a full day. Are they ok on your feet?

You look great!! The belt definitely made the outfit -- I need to get the courage to do the same.

@Gigi - I have had really good luck with Payless shoes (most of the time), especially the thicker heels. These shoes I actually to take to be fixed - one of the lifts came off, but now they are just fine. I'm not on my feet all day - most walking is from my office to the kitchen, bathroom, cafe, car, etc., but they are fine for me. I would say they are about average "comfort" level for heels. HTH!

@Cate - Thank you :)

@AppGal - Thanks! I was glad to pick up the Michelle cardi, because my other black cardis were always too short for this top!

@Michelle - Thank you! You can do it (belts, that is)! :)
