Belt It Out

From the ‘oh this is cute…’ method, I’ve managed to have a collection of 30+ belts. But after looking at past posts, I’ve noticed I haven’t been showing my belts a whole lot of love. So here’s one for those who like to belt it out! I’ve actually been trying to get rid of this belt for so long, convincing myself I didn’t need it or that it didn’t go with anything. Accessories can give a tried and true outfit a breath of fresh air. Let’s face it, sometimes we don’t have enough time in the morning to dig into our closets.

I’m 30 now so whenever I see a bow, my first reaction is to run in the other direction. However, I thought that maybe if I kept it simple and stick to black, I’d still look like a grown woman. The belt worked really well with my dress, over a pair of leather pants, and suede booties. That’s a lot to work with even in all black, but I felt like I pulled it off.

Happy Friday!

PS- Yes, I know the bag I chose is on its last legs but I love it, okay?! There are things I just can’t let go off…at least for now.

You want it? Then fight for it. Playing the part in my karate uniform inspired outfit as well as continuing to wear all black these Fall days. I may not have a black belt in martial arts, but I am a woman who fights everyday for her ultimate goal in life -happiness.

Hard work pays off…

Jump

Ready to shake it in a jumpsuit and sky high heels at the Daddy Yankee concert…

Jumpsuits are great for the girl who is running late! Oops! One leg, second leg in and you’re good to go (and very quick to remove when you come back home all danced out). I slipped into these B by Brian Atwood pumps that I bought myself some birthdays ago and I have to say the 6 inch heel is as comfortable as it can get! Plus the jumpsuit was way too long so the height of the shoe paired up perfectly.

Sorry I’ve been missing in budgetsai action, but sometimes a mental break and some hair touch ups is needed before I can get back on my grind and on your Instagram feed. 🙂

Fall is here, are you ready for sweater weather? Happy Hump Day!

xoxo, BudgetSai
