accessories make or break an outfit. the right handbag, jewelry, shoes, or belts are always the icing on the cake. if you want to take your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary, then pay attention to your accessories. from costume jewelry to belts and, yes, handbags, accessories are a simple way to add spit and polish to any outfit. today, i’m sharing how accessories can take your outfit from casual to date night with ease. come join me as i share 1 outfit accessorized 3 ways.
today’s ootd starts with a simple pair of white chino’s (old, similar here) from Talbots. Michael Stars is a favorite brand of mine for tees and sweaters and i love this neutral cotton sweater perfect for our spring temps. add a pair of slip-on sneakers from Caslon, and this outfit can lounge around the house or run errands with ease.
outfit #2 is elevated thanks to the addition of jewelry and handbag. the outfit is rooted in simplicity with white chinos and a neutral tone sweater and the shoes are cute and comfy (old, similar here, here, and here) the addition of gold and mother-of-pearl bangles adds a little oomph. and once spring and summer roll into town, i love to switch things up with handbags. a fisherman handbag (old, similar here, here, and here) just screams summer fun!
want a casual chic outfit that’s perfect for date night or brunch with the girls? yes, it’s all in the accessories. add a sexy pair of sandals (old, similar here, here, and here), a beautiful gold necklace (old, similar here, here, and here), and a sassy handbag to white chinos (old, similar here) and a neutral-toned sweater for that little extra something. if you’re lucky enough to head off to a resort or the beach this spring or summer, then keep your outfit simple. love, love, love summer neutrals that are chic and sophisticated yet so adaptable.
happy Sunday, ladies!
