J. Crew Italian Leather Stud Belt


CLOTHES: j. crew tee and pants
JEWELRY: necklaces from grandma's jewelry box / ann taylor bracelet
ACCESSORIES: j. crew belt / nina wedges / gucci wallet


Ideally, a size xs would have been best for me, but none were in store and I was too in love with the color and style to pass it up. The leather measures 42.5 inches. The smallest fit for this belt leaves enough leftover that it reaches the second belt loop at my hip. My solution is doing the front-tuck so that the excess leather is not showing. Currently, this item is no longer available online, but I saw several left in store last weekend, especially in the brown. Also, "sold out" items do sometimes reappear on jcrew.com.

A critique regarding the wedges...I need to get shoe inserts to keep my toes from sticking out! My toes look ridiculous! Since seeing this image, I have been pairing these pants with the Tory Burch Eddie Flats in royal tan. They were a necessary splurge...I wanted a pair of neutral flats without hardware. I am loving them!

    1. Hey! Padre is adjusting well. :) He hangs out with everyone. He really looks up to Kunu and follows/copies him. :) We have discovered that he loves to carry our shoes around the house at night. We will wake up and find them in different places. And he loves feather toys...he gets vicious! :p

  6. Hey Michelle!!!! :)

    I love this outfit and the colors you combined. This belt is incredible - my local J. Crew is pretty lacking so I never see fun belts like these. :) And I'll be looking forward to your post on the TB flats. :)

  8. I like the colour palette of this outfit! It's really bold so it was a good idea to keep the accessories to a minimum. : )

    In response to your comment on my post:
    I'm wearing a size 1 (their smallest size). According to the size chart, that's an XS/S. The Camden offers a more casual fit, but I can't say that it's the same for all of their tees. I noticed that some of their tees are more fitted while others aren't, so it really depends on what you choose. I hope that helps, Michelle! : )

    1. Thanks, Jessy! I will keep thinking about it! After looking through the website, sounds like I can sign up for an account at Stylemint without being obligated to pay for a shirt.

  12. I love the Nina wedges! Don't you hate it when your toes stick out? I have a few pumps where mine do that too--thank goodness for insoles.

    And your new haircut is fabulous--I always want to chop my hair off in the spring! So tempting.
