Tied With a Bow Belt

When I recently saw Jessica in her bow-belted pink dress, I was inspired. I’d been lusting after Kate Spade’s bow belt for a while now, but let’s be honest. There was no way I was going to drop $68 on a belt, regardless of how cute it was. So instead of pouting about my limited budget, I found a quick and easy solution: I tied a skinny belt into a bow!yellow madewell pumpsSure, it’s not a perfect bow, but it’s close enough for me. And the fact that I was able to use something I already had in my closet means scoring bonus points with the husband.

    I’m with you – I can’t fathom spending that much on a belt. I love that you were proactive and decided to make your own bow belt! It turned out great and I love the outfit!

    I love the print of the dress. I have a dress similar to this and I also have to belt it to make it feel pulled together. Isn’t it amazing what one little accent will do?
