Accessories Take it from Plain to Fabulous!

Posted on: February 6, 2013

I had no idea when I first began putting this outfit together that it would turn out looking so happy and spring-like.. I  just wanted to wear white jeans! 


I added this green sweater and have to say love this shade of green… This is just a casual zip up cable knit with a hood.   I only had plans for grocery shopping, so added the ballet flats keeping that in mind.

IMG_1944That look was way to casual for my eye, so headed over to my assortment of scarves to come to my rescue and save the outfit. I was drawn to this floral due to the shade of green that complimented the sweater and I quite liked the result.

I ended up adding a trip to the Verizon Wireless store as my son’s Iphone was messing up and the girl there complimented my scarf and colorful outfit saying  she normally wears color, then tried to make herself smaller as she folded into herself..  It is hard to appreciate a compliment when I can see the girl not liking her own outfit…But it did reassure me that adding the scarf was as magical as I thought it was!  

IMG_1937This is my deep purple Kenneth Cole Reaction coat that I purchased at the end of the season last year.  I got it small on purpose and now it fits!  

Gratitude:  I am grateful that I called my daughter today, as she is under tons of stress and close to a break down.. She is a girl who hates to cry but was there today with all the weight of this final semester and the internship weighing down on her.  I am so grateful that she just got it all out and seemed so much at peace by the end of our conversation.  All anyone ever really needs is Compassion!!!! 

Dear Readers, Isn’t it wonderful how much a difference Accessories can make to take an outfit up a notch?  Scarfs, Belts, Statement Necklaces, Shoes, what is your favorite way to spice up a look?  Would love to hear from you so chime in!

This scarf really is great! It has so many pretty colors to draw from and it looks pretty with the fresh white jeans. My favorite accessories are scarves and chunky necklaces.

I love to use scarves and vintage jewelry to accessorize and I have a bit of a shoe addiction, lol. You wrote in a post a while back about buying scarves cheaply on ebay and I have never looked back. I now have over 30 and I won’t buy any more unless I see one that I LOVE. I live in FL, so I have to wear my scarves now, while I can, before it gets too hot. Yay on that coat fitting now!

Wow 30 scarfs , that must have really changed your wardrobe options!!! I wear scarfs in the summer as a sash around my waist. Sometimes I tuck the ends in and other times I let them hang down. If it is too humid I save that for evening….

I add a scarf or statement necklace! Love the outfit!!

I agree…..accessories like that floral scarf will take an outfit to chic-er heights!!!


I love the green sweater as well. It’s a good color on you.

My go-to accessories for winter are bold earrings and scarves. For all other seasons, I love my statement jewelry pieces and shoes.

Tracey I love that scarf and the shoes!! The outfit looks great on you. I”ve been catching up on all your outfits and we seem to like a lot of the same things! Have a blessed day!
