Making my belt work for it

I'm trying to wear all my "strictly summer" clothes - the weather outside is a cool 82 degree high for today, and it is a great reminder that Fall is literally just around the corner of the calendar.  I took a close up of this pattern so you could see that the skirt isn't solid yellow--its got these printed little roses engrained in the material.

I bought this wide black belt years ago at a Ross in Lubbock, Texas.  Imagine the time when wide belts were just really coming back into style, and I was undecided about the "trend".  I didn't want to invest in a pricier wide black belt--that was really when you still had to search for them, instead of finding them at every store at the mall.  I saw this one at Ross for $10, and thought I'd buy it.  I've probably worn it 4 times since then.  I don't know why I haven't invested in a nicer one by now...obviously what I once thought was a passing fancy is here to stay for awhile, competing equally for the waistline with skinny belts and grosgaine ribbons!

Last night I was messing around with, still not really liking the way it looked on my waist, when something incredible spun slightly to the right!  And I loved it!  Or at least I liked it a lot better.  Its just a loose (p)leather strap with a buckle on the end, so I think by throwing it off center, it gets a more playful edge to the outfit rather than the straightlaced and buckled look I was attempting by buckling it in the middle.

Like my eyeshadow again today.  And my hair has...volume!  Nick Chavez Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, I think you might be working!  But I was also 10 minutes later for work than I intended.  Why does it take so long to look beautiful? :P

Funnest shoes ever...but probably not going to be very good come winter!  Need to invest in some solid black flats, stat!
