Accessories Make The Outfit

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

I'm an accessory lover through and through. While I fill my closet with tons of clothing that I found on sale, I will spend a little bit more on jewelry and accessories because I know that I will get a ton of wear out of them. Accessories can be worn during all seasons and last a bit longer than some trendy pieces of clothing. Even if I'm just wearing something very basic, I will still throw on a scarf or a necklace to add a little pop. Accessories can change and really dress up an otherwise boring look.

The other day I had on a very basic outfit:

You could probably call my basic outfit my "momiform" because I wear those items all. the. time.

But I made sure to add some accessories to help dress the outfit up and make it look different from every other momiform.

There are a couple things that I regularly add to dress up an outfit:

Necklaces are my absolute favorite type of accessory because there are so many different styles. It is so fun to pair different necklaces with the same outfit to get a different look. I'm a huge fan of Stella & Dot because they have so many things to offer.

Bracelets are another fun way to dress up an outfit. I love basic, classic pieces and I'm totally in love with this two tone bangle that I was given as a gift from The Vanilla Tulip.

And finally, if I'm feeling a little sassy and want to dress up an outfit, I will curl my hair or style it a different way. I spent the majority of my life with super straight hair that I wore that way everyday and I'm so happy that because of blogs I've learned to style my hair in fun ways. I used this tutorial here to style my hair.

Just by adding these few things to my outfit takes it to another level and makes me feel like a million bucks!


  1. That necklace is great! I totally love accesories too but Caleb's starting to pull on things so I have to be a little more careful.

  2. Yes yes yes I agree and that necklace very nice

  3. Love these ideas--I can't do a ton with my hair because it doesn't hold well, but I love the soft curls that you do! And necklaces are an awesome statement piece to dress up an outfit! I like adding a scarf to an outfit to dress it up too--I think my scarf collection's doubled this year haha


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
