Outfit: Metal Belt

REBECCA_3J.Crew Peacoat (old but love this) // Vintage Fur (love this faux option)

J.Brand Jeans // Zara Blouse (old but LOVE // bargain) // Sam Edelman Boots (on sale!)

Rebecca Minkoff Bag (also in black or coral) // Rachel Pally Belt // NARS Lipstick

After seeing this incredible look on Pinterest, I decided I needed a metal belt.  I found several amazing options (like this or this) but ended up settling on the Rachel Pally version.  I wore it slung lower on my hips, with an all black ensemble; but it will look just as cute over a bright shift or fun floral top come Spring.  It’s definitely one of my favorite additions to my wardrobe (and maybe I need to lay off Pinterest for a bit, no?)

On a beauty related note… no, my hair is not intentionally ombre – I just really need to find a new colorist!  And the lipstick is a new favorite… for me at least, NARS Scarlet Empress is the perfect burgundy lip.  I never thought I’d be brave enough to try it, but I went for it and really love it.

    I have Scarlett Empress, too…it’s such a fabulous shade! I would totally be too intimidated to wear a belt like this, but it looks amazing with your outfit!

    LOVE the lip color! And the belt is fab… You never look like you are trying to hard, even when you bust out outfits like this! P.S. your hair is awesome – I say keep the unintentional ombre!

    Scarlett Empress is my all time fave! NARS just kills it in the lippy department. Love the belt. So pulled together but easy. xo

      Hi Carolina, Yes these are slightly different! They are an older model I think, bought at TJ Maxx… the ones I linked to are very similar but these are cut just slightly lower on the foot. Here are three options that you might also like?
