Fighting the Frump: Waist Belts

Last weekend, I took a rare solo moment to zip through the mall. Instead of coming out refreshed and inspired, I left feeling disheartened and frumpy. Spending last fall in nothing but maternity clothes has left me especially out of touch.

It's high time I start caring again. Because I'm not ready to give up just yet. 
I'm taking a stand. I'm fighting the frump. How, you ask? With a new blog series (and perhaps a little shopping of my own). In the next few weeks, I'll break it down into quick, easy ways to update and build on the wardrobe you all ready have. Up first, the waist belt. Wear it over a dress or over cozy layers to instantly make a statement and pull your look together.

Here are a few of my favorite waist belts for fall:

Ohhh I so relate and am so with you on this Christina! Although I haven't been wearing maternity clothes, it's so easy to wear a pair of jeans and sweater every day, hair in a ponytail and work at the computer
:( So funny, my big purchase this month was a little leopard belt at J Crew. I so need to add more clothes into my wardrobe or else purchase my whole line for me!
Hope you are cozy and warm today and have a lovely weekend!
