Top Thrift Shorts Sneak Peak

The other day I was sifting through my closet and noticed I have three belts in my entire collection, then a light bulb went off. Why don't I take stitched on belts off of dresses/shorts/skirts and use them for new outfits? Instantly my collection of belts grew tenfold. I can't believe I have never thought of this before! I think it was one of those things that was too obvious for me to realize sooner.

I just started using the belts/fabric/strings from my dresses too as belts! Mostly I just switch around between dresses and mix and match with colors but I'm really loving this casual look. I might have to do something inspired by it ;)
