A belt is a flexible band, typically made of leather or heavy cloth, and worn around the waist.

Belts! I've been pretty into them as of late, and yesterday (I'm developing a habit of posting a day behind...) my day was all about my belt. My mom thrifted it for me in Michigan a few months ago. She has a keen vintage eye, that momma of mine. It's gorgeous, supple tooled leather with a perfect fit and equestrian feel. Naturally, the 'ol riding boots had to be a part of this day as well.

Today is going to be filled with steel wool, orange oil, and Brasso (restoring a mid century serving cart) so my get up is hardly post worthy, but it does include this little vintage felted wool belt. LOVE! It's hand embroidered with the most perfect tiny flowers; made in Switzerland. Do any of you ever head straight to the accessory section at your favorite thrift store? Sometimes I think fellow vintage enthusiasts forget about the divine little treasures to be had here..... shh, don't tell them!!!
