I’ve confessed that I struggle a bit with the accessorizing thing, but I’m learning that there really are NO RULES. I mean, there are a few. Like basically, don’t overdo it. But these days almost anything goes.
Part of having great style is taking taking calculated risks. Do something a little bit unexpected, and if it works, the payoff is huge. I’m not exactly a risk taker, but sometimes taking a step outside of my comfort zone is exactly what I need.
This is my new favorite fashion tip. It’s so simple that it’s really not worth an entire blog post, but since this is what I do (and because only 20% of my fans see my Facebook page updates) here it is.
Take a fancy necklace or a big stack of sparkly bangles and throw them on with your favorite t-shirt and jeans.
That’s it. Seriously.
It’s so fun and EASY and it also helps you get your money’s worth out of your fancy jewelry because, let’s face it, how often do you get a chance to dress up and go out? If you’re anything like me, it’s not very.
Here I did it with earrings and a bracelet.
It’s just something unexpected that elevates a casual outfit to one that’s a little bit special.
I even threw together a quick YouTube video to show it in action.
The jewelry shown is by Stella and Dot. As most of you know, I’m an independent stylist for Stella & Dot. I invite you to shop my online boutique for these great styles and more! If you ever have any questions, please let me know!
