They say "Opportunity makes the man" but for us gals, I say, "Style makes the woman." Each one of us has our own unique style whether it's jeans and tee shirts, heels with shorts, or joggers all day, every day, your style is a representation of who you care to present to the world.
My personal style has morphed over the years, driven by fashion trends as well as my own desire to look and feel more feminine after so many years spent wearing combat boots. I love to wear heels but over the years have also learned that finding the right kind of heel is integral to me wearing said pair of shoes more than once.
So, heels, bags, jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, and any other items you'd like to throw in the mix can all make a simple tank and jeans change right before your eyes.
Here I've added a colorful vibrant print shirt dress from Asos (old), worn kimono style, a pink bag from Kohls, and a fabulous pair of BCBG shoes (old) that help bring out that orangy, apricoty shade from the shirt dress. A simple necklace and Waa-Laa you're ready to hit the town.
The jeans and top are super versatile and both come in several colors and they can be worn a myriad of ways. Throw a blue jean jacket over your shoulders and some flat sandals and you're ready for just about any activity that you can do in Austin in the summertime. Add a hat and some statement sunglasses and BAM BABY it's time to head out to the lake!
Here, I've switched out the shoes for these Steve Madden mules, this absolutely AH-mazing Balmain look alike statement blazer from Express, added a fab scarf and then pulled this small yellow bag out from Forever 21 (similar here)
Now I'm ready to ditch my backyard for some hang out time and wine with my bestie!
Adding accessories is one of the most fun parts for me about getting dressed everyday. I pull out the starter pieces and lay them on my bed, and then I just start grabbing stuff from my collection and throwing it together to see what works, what feels right, and what statement I want to convey for the day.
So ladies, grab that scarf, switch out your everyday bag, and perhaps add a second pair of inexpensive sunnies to your collection and start accessorizing!!!
Cheers my friends! XOXO
