Flashback Friday: Utility Belt

[Click the photo to view it larger.] This is one of my favorite belts (Banana Republic, $30), and yesterday's outfit made me curious to see what other ways I've worn it! Florals are a recurring theme, as is the color olive. I also tend to pair this belt with the same H&M sandals because the colors go together, but I also recommend branching out and trying a lighter brown shoe with belts like this.

Styling tips: Use an elastic belt to cinch in a loose dress (like I did in outfit #3) or to keep a cardigan in place (like outfit #4). Also - I've seen this belt at tons of stores over the past few months including LOFT and Limited, but Banana Republic has an identical belt in stores right now!

Which look is your favorite?
