How To Accessorize


Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to kick this weeks butt. How about it?!

Today on the blog I'm talking all about accessories because accessorizing is my favorite. There's so much you can do with it--You can dress up your favorite plain tee or you can be bold and add more onto an already fun look. While I love being bold with my accessories I find myself doing it more when my outfits are simple. For this look I wanted to keep it basic and cozy, but I wanted to add accessories that would dress the look up and make it pop. So I started with the basics.. a pair of light wash girlfriend jeans, a black turtleneck sweater, and a poncho. I grabbed the booties so they could dress the look up. I love how a simple pair of shoes can determine the style of your look. If I would have gone with a pair of flats or slip-ons, it would've been more casual. Then I added my favorite gold necklace and a fun pair of statement earrings to bring in some color. And you can't forget the handbag! I've found myself leaning more towards crossbodies and smaller bags rather than big totes (which I used to use all the time). It's just more convenient, which is one of the many reasons why I love this one. 

If you're unsure on how to accessorize you look, here are a few tips.

1. Start off by putting your outfit together. This always works for me because then I know how much, or little, I should accessorize. If your outfit is more on the casual/basic side, go bold. Layer some necklaces, create a fun arm party, and add some statement earrings. If your look already has a lot going on, stick to simple pieces or grab one statement piece that will tie the look together.

2. Don't be afraid to add some color. If you're wearing a subtle outfit, don't be afraid to grab the chunky statement necklace you're dying to wear (you know the one I'm talking about). 100% of the time any necklace you wear with a plain shirt will look good. So be bold and don't give a d*mn about it! 

3. Enough is never enough if you do it right. If you're pairing the right pieces together I promise you won't look tacky! Grab your delicate necklaces and layer them then choose either a pair of statement earrings or an arm party and call it a day.
