Double trouble or double the fun? This double buckle belt is one of those cool items you instantly want and wonder how you ever lived without it so far. OK, the other one is that double G Gucci belt we've all seen plastered all over the internet lately. That's on the wishlist for sure, but not necessarily something I would invest in right now. To be honest, I ordered this one because I loved the details on the buckles and I wanted to wear it with jeans. Unfortunately the size of the buckles is too big for the belt loops on most of my pairs of jeans. So I had to put on hold for a while the outfit I originally had in mind. The cool thing is that it works really well as a waist belt, so you can wear it over dresses and loose tops and it will give them an instant edge.
For today's outfit I wanted to play a bit with volumes so I went for a loose top (which can be worn as a summer dress as well, I guess) and a pair of palazzo pants with split details on the legs. These pants literally have a life of their own when I start to move, and I absolutely love the shapes they create as I am walking. If I stand still you would say I am wearing a skirt. I wanted to wear a pair of cuff bracelets to keep the "double" theme going, but that would have distracted the attention from the belt, and I wanted it to be the focus. Instead I wore a pair of star shaped earrings, which although quite big they are quite understated. I realize the outfit looks quite summery, but since the weather here hasn't been very predictable lately, we've occasionally enjoyed some pretty warm days. Today it rained, so I guess it evens out. I am quite determined though to wear this double buckle belt with jeans, so stayed tuned cause you're going to see this item a lot in rotation this summer. Hmmm, I wonder if I can wear it with my denim shorts? Haven't tried that yet.
