Obi Belt – How to Wear

I have been eyeing an obi belt for awhile.  My biggest hesitation in getting one was that I had no idea HOW to wear it!  Pre-baby, I would classify my shape as curvy, like an hourglass.  After babies (wow, I can’t believe I have more than ONE kid!), my shape is well, um, still curvy, if you count lumps and bumps everywhere.

Luckily, today I took a keep-my-sanity-for-the-good-of-everyone morning off from work.  I had to take my littlest one in for her vaccination shots and to cheer mommy up, we did a little retail therapy.

It was a little strange to hit the mall after about 2 years and I was a little confused by the new layout.  I hit up The Limited, mostly because that was the only store I normally shop at that I could find in the construction mess!

They were having a 40% off sale, sweet!  As I waited in line to check out, their accessories beckoned to me.  I tried to resist their pull, I already had picked out two new pairs of pants!  But my eye spotted an obi belt, on the SALE section no less!

The obi belt was partly an impulse buy but I justify it by A.  It was on SALE (plus an extra 40% off, how can you say no to that?!) and B.  I had been wanting one for awhile and C.  It was in a neutral, navy color and well, who am I kidding, I just WANTED it in my hot little hands.

So now I have this awesome belt, but no clue how to wear it.  Shhh, don’t tell my husband!  Thankfully, Google came to the rescue and I came across this cute site that shows not just 1, but 5 ways to wear the darn thing!  Thanks, Google, you rock!
