OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Good Morning lovely ladies!

Happy Tuesday! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect fall outfit for this time of year.  With the weather getting progressively cooler, and the days getting shorter and shorter, I know being comfy is one of my main concerns when getting dressed in the morning (in addition to looking fashionable and cute, of course!).  This week’s Trendy Tuesday does exactly that.  With a super stylish (and amazingly comfy!) sweater from J. Crew and an awesome infinity scarf paired with your favorite boots, you are sure to steal the show with your outfit anywhere you go! And now, without further ado, here’s today’s outfit of the day

If that awesome little ensemble doesn’t say chic, comfy, and seasonable, then I don’t know what does!

You just cannot go wrong with an oversized sweater, scarf, and boots! Paired with either your favorite jeans, or even with a pair of leggings, this outfit is most definitely a staple in everyone’s closet this winter!

I hope you ladies have an amazing day! In good old Harrisonburg, it is actually going to get up to about 65 degrees today! But don’t you worry… it was a whopping 33 degrees when my roommate and I left our house this morning (so naturally, we’ll go from Winter to Spring in just a few short hours!).  But, no matter where you may be, I hope you have nothing but good things going on today! Until tomorrow…

Oops! Don’t Forget To Accessorize

The Finishing Touch on the Perfect Outfit… Don’t Ever Leave The House Without Accessories!

As you’re showering, doing your hair, and putting on your make-up each morning when you’re getting dressed, most women are watching TV, listening to music (and if you’re anything like me, singing along embarrassingly!), all the while, thinking about what you want to wear and planning your outfit in your head.  However, what many people are not thinking about is how they can pull their whole outfit together by accessorizing.  There are so many little things you can add to your outfit to really complete the look and make yourself even more put together.  A few of these things include:  unique shoes, jewelry, and scarves.

Shoes

If you’re anything like me, you probably find any reason you possibly can to get a new pair of shoes.  I am definitely what you could call addicted to shoes! For example, I went to 72676_603130419700955_858341648_n Midwinter Formal at VMI in February, and after I got my dress, I found a pair of shoes that were absolutely perfect! But then my mom did not fail to remind me that I already had a pair that I was wearing and these shoes that I “had to have” we’re not necessary.  So being the shoe lover I am, naturally I saved a picture of them to my desktop and emailed her randomly with the picture of the shoes and a statement about how good they would look on my feet with my perfect dress that I had found (at a steal of a price, might I add!).  To make a long story short, I ended up adding those amazing shoes to my still-growing collection.

The point of my story is that we all have a TON of shoes, however most of us forget about the super cute ones that we get for special occasions (like my Steve Madden Realove Heels
Midwinter heels that I have worn only once…).  Something as simple as pulling out those awesome shoes you had to have for a certain event (or that you just couldn’t pass up on your last shopping trip) to your everyday outfits, it can really add to the look and pull the whole outfit together.

Jewelry

Now for my personal favorite part of accessorizing, the jewelry! Adding costume or high fashion jewelry to any outfit can be Lia Sophia Bracelets the cherry on top of a perfect ensemble.  Jewelry has the power to pull an entire outfit together and make any outfit look complete.  No matter what your style may be, there is something for everyone in the way of jewelry.

If you’re a more subtle person who isn’t usually a huge jewelry wearer yet, you can stick to the more traditional and classic silver, gold, and hematite pieces.  You can wear smaller pieces if you’re apprehensive of the new addition(s) to your wardrobe, or if you’re feeling adventerous, go with bigger, more bold pieces that really stick out without being colorful statement necklace from J.Crew too flashy.

Now for those jewelry connoisseurs who think they have it all, try adding a few pieces 
into your collection that have a pop of color or colors if you’re feeling bold.  If you aren’t too sure about adding all this color, you can go with smaller pieces with more subtle colors; but if you’re not, add bigger statement necklaces, flashy earrings, or a big ring.

Scarves

Personally, I am always cold (my roommate swears something is wrong with me), so as spring/summer outfit with lightweight scarf you can imagine winter and the colder months of the year are definitely not my favorite!  However, one way I deal with the cold weather of the winter months is by adding a scarf to my outfit; this cute accessory, but also a fashionable and stylish addition to any outfit.

So, you’re probably thinking “okay, scarves are cute and great for the winter, but its spring now and finally starting to get warm…” Well, if you were thinking that, you’re right! Wearing heavier scarves are perfect for the winter; but there are also light-weight scarves that come in cute patterns and bright colors that are an excellent fun colorful scarves for spring time touch to any spring outfit! They are not necessarily intended to provide you with warmth, rather they are simply there to act solely as an accessory, much like a necklace!  However, they are also great for the early mornings when it is still chilly from the night before, or that late night when you’re out with friends or heading home late from work (or in my case, the library!) .


So, now that you know how important it is to accessorize and just how much it can add to your outfit, you are ready to hit the stores and go crazy! Stock up on all of your favorite accessories now, so that when you need them to complete the perfect look, you have them and you won’t wish you had just bought that one pair of shoes that you loved at Nordstrom last week (I know I always indulge in such situations…)! Get out there and have some fun! I mean after all, shopping for new clothes and accessories at the beginning of each season is one of my favorite parts of the season changing!

XOXO, Kristen
