A little accessorizing goes a long way!

I have been featuring some of my favorite outfits and to go pieces for a bit and thought it was time to take a moment to talk accessories. I love to accessorize!!! The mister probably thinks I have too much crap, but I don’t care! It is all MINE!!! I purge my closet a few times a year of shoes and clothes. However, I never get rid of jewelry, scarves, purses, and hair stuff. I have things that I have had since high school, and I still use them!
One of my favorite things to do lately is to add a belt…to most everything! This chunky belt shown I got at a thrift store. Never underestimate your local thrift stores! My personal favorites are Plato’s Closet and Clothes Mentor, partly because I love consigning with them and usually get a good amount for it too! Anyways, a nice chunky belt with a tunic can give a nice hourglass shape. If you need ideas on where to start, I really like this one from Simply Be!
I also tend to wear a lot of jewelry and scarves. I seldom leave my house without something around my neck. I like big clunky pieces. I am not sure where I picked the black necklace from my ensemble. I have had it quite a while. You may have even seen it in some of my older pin-up shoots!
However, simple pieces, like this one below are nice because you can wear it dressed up and dressed down! It can also be found at Simply Be
.I like to keep a variety of purses so that I can match outfits from time to time. However, if purses are not your thing, I suggest finding something that is simple that will go with a variety of outfits. It gives you a more polished look.
The point of using accessories is to make your outfit stand out a little more. If you are like me and like to wear the same outfits over and over again, it also makes them look a little different each time, depending on the accessories you use!
