Weekend finds: The search for a hot pink belt

Earlier this week, I purchased these shoes from Payless. I love hot pink. Always have, always will. The outfit that I had in mind for this shoe is a button-down tunic top and jeans. Sounds pretty boring, right? But, with bright colors, I try to keep it simple. I don't want to be too flashy. I decided to look for a belt to compliment the shoes and jazz up the outfit. I went to 579 yesterday. They had the perfect belt that looks similar to this one (in hot pink, of course), just not in my size. No biggie. I waited until today to continue my search. I went to another 579 to find the belt. Still no luck. Then, I went into Charlotte Russe. They had quite a few choices, some in different shades. I chose this one that was closest to the shoe:



belt $8.99, Charlotte Russe

Now, the pic makes the belt and the shoes look way off, but in real life, the belt is actually a wee bit off from the shoe. No prob. Since the belt is on top and the shoes are on the bottom, you really can't tell. I tried them on with the top and the jeans and this is the result:


What do you guys think? I want honest opinions. Holla!

I think it looks cute. I have a super short torso so no cool belts for me. :-(

I love it! Besides, as long as he belt is in the same color family, it "goes." :)
Now I'm off to Payless.com to get a pair of those shoes!

When you were describing the outfit I wasn't quite sure with the belt and shoes. But the picture shows a pretty nice outfit.

Very cute! I can't wear mine until spring because it's way too COLD here! :( Some of my ideas for wearing the shoes was with denim minis, tops that had a hint of the color or complimented it, a dress, and dark denim capris (I am crazy for them in the summer!).

Okay so you asked for honesty....
(I AM IN NO WAY TRYING TO BE MEAN)

First, the outfit would right away look a lot better if you had a darker wash jean on.

The bracelet is too matchy-matchy.

Also as cute as the belt is I think it could be about a half an inch, to an inch smaller, to compliment your shape.

I LOVE the shoes, and I LOVE pink, and you could really work this outfit if you tweak it just a little.

Also, not to be picky, but the necklace ruins the line of the outfit. You should stick to a smaller necklace so it doesn't compete with the belt, OR you could wrap that very cute necklace into a bracelet, and get rid of the pink one.

thanks for the ideas, everyone. browneyedgirl, those are great ideas for what you're going to wear with yours.

@anonymous 11:03 am: i'm going to go with a shorter necklace because the long one does compete with the belt or maybe i could just do silver accessories? thanks for the honesty and ideas

I think this outfit is too cute. Go girl, lol. But like the anonymous poster said, I'd go with a different bracelet and a shorter necklace :) .

I like the shoes... the belt... not my cup of tea.

lol..I'll be honest: Loving the long cotton top.
Not feeling the belt. Not a fan of the belt under tities trend. Like anon said, too matchy and a darker wash would look great...
I like the bracelet, try adding one of a diff color like beige or blue like the jeans.

I think either sticking with classic accessories in silver, OR you could punch it up with a few bracelets maybe alternating an animal print with a few beige ones or yellow.

U might wanna wear tight (dark wash)jeans (e.g;skinny jeans) instead of these bootleg jeans to show off the shoes,forget about the bracelet and neckless (u dnt wanna over assecorize now do u?!) besides less is more,u want ppl to admire ur belt and shoes!

Hey Cheap Chica! I agree with the poster above. I LOVE the belt and shoes but I would've went with a darker jean with a straighter leg to show of those cute shoes.

Hey Chica! Love the look, but I'm going to agree with the others... go with a darker wash jean and you'll be completely FAB!

Hey Chica, I’m not really feeling the shirt... It's a bit too long and I think if it was 3/4 sleeved it would look better... I like the accessories, but yea the necklace doesn’t work...I don’t agree with the darker jeans… you are wearing pink and white…. Why would you wear a darker color? It’s a really cute outfit overall...I like it…
