Hello lovelies! I’m back from an impromptu and much needed vacation in Portugal. Check out my SashaDoll Closet Instagram page for more pictures from the trip. If you haven’t been following me there, you missed out on some fun Instagram stories from the trip.
Just before I left I received my new Heldin Belt and of course had to bring it with me on my trip. As it was a short trip I needed to keep my packing to a minimum. I ended up bringing just a pair of jeans (in which I also travelled), these wide legged cropped pants from Zara, 3 tops and a dress. That was it! These 6 items plus 4 pairs of shoes and a leather jacket created multiple outfits which I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. It may give you some ideas for your next trip. Nothing worse than lugging around a large luggage especially if you are like me and don’t stay in one place but rather travel between cities. One thing I hadn't planned for was putting on weight so quickly, but food in Portugal was so yummy that I couldn't help myself. So pardon the little belly bulges hahaha.
I had planned out today’s outfit around the belt and from there packed the rest of the outfits and items to bring with me. Doesn’t the belt add an interesting element to an otherwise classic outfit? It gives it some edge. I love how it also accentuates the waist. A cool part about it is that the belt across the chest can be removed for when you just need a simple black belt. They also come in several colours. Make sure to visit Heldin Belt to check them out. This brand is meant to empower women through fashion, as Heldin is German for the female form of Hero, or Heroine.
The belt would also go beautifully over a dress, whether a slim or a frilly style. It adds sex appeal to a fitted dress or an element of rock and roll or an element of edge to a more feminine style dress.
Let me know your thoughts on the outfit.
