I found this belt in a clearance basket at Urban Outfitters a couple of years ago. Although some of the embellishments were dangling off from the belt, I had to have it. I don’t wear it a lot, in fact it tumbles from drawer to drawer as I struggle to find something to wear every morning.
Today I was pilfering through one of my drawers when the belt fell out. It immediately inspired me to wear something that made me feel beautiful. That is just what this belt is, a treasure that gives me a push of motivation to dress up as I’m reaching for my sneakers and a sweatshirt.
I will be graduating from college in just under two months and with that will come a big girl, big time job where I will have to dress professionally every day. While I look forward to investing in a new wardrobe and playing with new styles, I am constantly indulging in the comfort of sweatpants and UGG boots. I know this is the last little part of my young adult life where I will be able to wear these things.
But enough of my post-graduation fears! This belt is one tiny piece of my wardrobe, but it does wonders for me and somehow convinced me that today was the perfect day to dress up.
