Frilling accessories: J Crew calf hair wide belt

By

Happy Tuesday y’all! There is nothing like a good statement accessory to FRILL up your everyday wear. For instance, here I’m wearing J Crew’s calf hair wide belt.

I have to admit, I was a little hesitant about this purchase at first. Would I like it 5 years from now? How much wear could I REALLY get out of an animal print belt? I tend not to wear a lot of belts, so it was a risk for me!

My rule of thumb for this belt and for any piece you own, love, but aren’t quite sure how to wear is this: put it on with every relevant outfit possible, just to see how it looks. So far, I have only ended up taking it off once! It’s amazing how versatile and functional this belt has been for me. I am really, REALLY happy with this purchase. It has definitely added to my wardrobe, and as y’all could have guessed, I am especially smitten with the extra frills created when I mix it with another print.

I’m also loving and wearing the heck out of my Teal Annie necklaces. Anything made with love and a unique story is extra special to me. And our giveaway is still going on, so don’t forget to enter for your chance to win $50 to the Teal Annie Etsy Shop
