Yellow mini skirt with a bow belt

Shirt: Splendid / Skirt: Storets / Belt: J.Crew (similar here) / Shoes: ShoeMint / Bracelets: J.Crew & BaubleBar / Earrings: Random boutique in Palo Alto
The Banker: I don’t think you need a belt with that.
Me: (wraps belt into a bow)
The Banker: Actually, that looks pretty cute.
And so, I wore this outfit out to drinks at Southern Pacific Brewing Company with one of my dearest friends Tracy. To make your seemingly regular belt in to a bow, make sure you have plenty of slack. (I bought this belt one size up.) Cinch your belt as you normally would and then fold the excess leather and wrap it back through the keeper (leather loop of the belt) and make a sweet bow. Tuck the back of your bow (the tip of your belt) behind the buckle. Voilà! You can ‘put a bow on it’.

    Cute! I really like the fabric & subtle print/texture of this skirt. And pockets? Basically my favorite thing ever on a skirt! 🙂

      Oh yes. Pockets on a skirt make any buying indecision turn into me finding a place in my closet for it immediately.
