11/30 - What accessories can do for you!

Yay!  It's Friday!  We have big plans this weekend that include a sleepover and a Gamecock football game for the boys (little G's first!).  The boys are so excited!  We are planning a good old fashioned tailgate and lots of fun!  I'll post pictures next week!

Earlier this week I had the inspiration to do a post on how accessories can change what we are wearing.   In my 11th outfit of the 30 for 30 challenge, my accessories made all the difference!   Let me demonstrate:

Here we have a plain Jane outfit that I could go work in the yard in (if I did yard work - which I don't!):

Hmmm...what can we do with this outfit?  Let's see, change the shoes,  add a necklace, how about another necklace, add a belt, roll the sleeves up , add bracelets and ring, and voila!

jeans - Loft
chambray shirt - Target
shoes - Lindsay Phillips
belt - Loft
pendant necklace - Francescas
other necklace - Handpicked
bracelets - Handpicked
ring - Target

Big improvement, don't you think?


  1. That was quite the transformation. You really showed the power of accessories. Well done!


  2. Fantastic change-up! My friends and sisters are always nagging me to "show them how to wear jewelry," etc, and I'm just going to direct them here!

    One nitpicky change--I would wear a darker jean with that chambray shirt, for greater color contrast. That could also just be your flash (I know mine totally washes me out), but I thought it was worth a comment.

  3. I totally agree about the darker jeans! Unfortunately, I don't have a darker pair in my 30 items, so I worked with the items I had. After the challenge I am definitely going with a darker pair with this ensemble. Thanks for the comment!

  4. ooh, I like the belt. Fellow remixer here, wishing you well with the remaining challenge.

  5. Wow - what a great example of how to jazz up an outfit! Love the necklaces.

  6. Terrific change! I will be copying this along with a few other outfits you've put together. This would very much improve the look of my chambray shirt that is a bit big on me.

  7. Great post! You should do a series like this!
