Accessorizing with Blazers

Accessorizing can give outfits loads of textures and character with ease, as well as give you completely different looks while only alternating one or two elements.

Have you ever picked out an outfit and as you're walking out the door you see other accessory options that will work just as well with the outfit that you're wearing??  Well that happened to me this particular day.

I was pretty much sold on the classic look of my black and white cardigan.  I wanted to give my look texture so I paired this somewhat soft look with my snakeskin sandals.  I felt the outfit had great balance, but still lots of character.

How about we add some color...

With a quick blazer and sandal switch, I created a vibrant summertime look.  I changed into a thrifted 90s vintage blazer and a pair of metallic bronze ankle sandals for a fun after work look.

Floral Jumpsuit

Hey guys on this particular day I wore this outfit to mainly test it out with the red lip.  Usually I do a nude or soft pink lip with this floral jumpsuit, but I just wanted to see how it would look with my beloved RiRi Woo.  I think the red lip gives the jumpsuit a dressier feel.  What do you think?

Monochromatic Gold and Brown with a hint of Green

Yes guys I am still very much in love with my mini satchel.  I carry everyday, no matter what I am wearing.  All of you know how long I was coveting this little beauty (see post) so finding the perfect bag at the right price was a big relief.

On most days my outfits are either monochromatic or color blocked, so this particular day wasn't much different.  My marigold blouse is vintage, and my skirt is a midi that I picked up from Forever 21.

Crown of Roses - Floral Headband

Hey guys I wanted to show you all how I wore my new rose headband.  I had been seeing a lot of floral headbands, and I was dieing to get one.  When I spotted this beautiful red rose headband at Versona Accessories I had to have it.

I paired my headband with a lace black and white dress that I picked up last year at H&M.  Instead of doing the usual flower power, boho look with the headband, I opted to wear mine in a dressy way because I was going to my family's church.  So here is an option for dressing up a floral headband.
