The Creative Closet || Just Add A Belt

11.25.2014
Last week I posted this outfit and then I saw the theme for today and I was like.... drats. I could have totally used those photos for today's post. Instead I had to create a whole new outfit and I'm so glad I did because I've found a new ensemble that I love and it's something I've never tried before.

I'm wearing a basic t-shirt dress that I actually haven't worn in over a year, but refused to throw out because I'm a hoarder with my clothing. It lost two buttons in the front just over my chest and because I never sew, it hasn't been fixed - hence why I haven't worn it in over a year. I got to thinking, "how could I fashionably cover those missing buttons up?". Instantly a scarf was my go-to option, the only problem is it kept sliding away, revealing my chest. And then a light-bulb clicked when I saw today's theme. Add a belt! Viola! I love the creativity this link-up can pull out of us.


You can see Jana's and our co-host, Jaelan's, full looks by clicking on their names. Aren't they both so beautiful? We all chose such different styles, I love it!

  5. I'm a hoarder with my clothes too haha, "but I might wear it one day!" Love your look and your messy bun and bold lip are perfection.

  6. So adorable! I love the layering and would have never thought to put the belt around the scarf too! Just a little heads up you have your co-sponsor wrong (should be Jaelan not Jaquelyn) and an old link up because I magically appeared on it and I haven't linked up in ages. I am planning on getting back on board for December though if possible!

  8. All you pregnant ladies are taking over the linkup this week! You all are so cute and not helping baby fever at all!

    That is a really genius way to wear a scarf! And to wear a cardigan that doesn't have buttons in some places! :D

  12. An ingenius solution to the problem! I think this looks great - the colors are fantastic in the cardigan and the scarf, and the ring picks up the green too...lovely :) And I always adore your accessories! You have such a way of using jewelry with your outfits perfectly. I haven't gotten the hang of layering bracelets etc yet!

  13. Wow I'm new to blogging and i've never done a link up before but i'd really like to participate because this looks like so much fun and I'd love to meet more people through blogging. I'm just still a little slow on all the blog stuff and trying really hard to get the hang of it all. Is there any way you could help me figure out how to do all this? I read the rules and I'm still a little confused. If you have time it would be so nice if you could email me! (ashley@beautybrain.org)
    Here are the rules:
    1. how do i follow Follow the hosts and how do i know who the hosts are? I know you said the cohosts are the 1st 3 links but what is the difference between the hosts and cohosts?

    2. Do i link back to this post every time there's a topic?

    3. When i go to comment on others who have posted am i supposed to include a link back to my own post?

    4. Can I post anytime through out the day? Or is there a deadline?

    Sorry for the bajillion annoying questions but I'd love to try this out! Thanks so much.

  15. I love the way you belted the scarf! And I totally did the same thing with this week and last week's prompts. I wore the belt in last week's photos and then I was like, "Well shoot. Belt repeat, two weeks in a row. Oh well!" :)

  16. I absolutely love how you pulled the scarf into the belt - amazing!!

  17. I am such a hoarder with my clothes, and it doesn't help my problem that I've actually found things in my wardrobe from years ago and have fallen in love with them again - it just justifies the madness haha. I love that adding the belt really shows off the belly too! You are adorable as ever!

  18. Such a clever idea!!! I think I might be the complete opposite with my clothes, I get rid of the ones I don't wear religiously. It might be because I have limited space, so every inch of my closet is very precious. I look forward to the days of big closets and tons of space so I can keep everything;) Love the outfit!
