Extras Make the Outfit

Target Top / Rachel by Rachel Roy Jacket / Banana Republic Jeans / Marc by Marc Jacobs Bracelet / Vintage Purse / Lauren by Ralph Lauren Shoes / J. Crew Belt
I got this really fun belt at J.Crew the other day and I was really excited to wear it.  I let my outfit be pretty simple and loaded on the fun accessories.  The easiest thing to do when you want to make an outfit more interesting is to just have a lot of accessories on hand that have a lot of personality.  While I do like my outfits to be fun I also like to invest in classic pieces like these wide leg jeans.  They were actually passed to me from my sister and they were passed to her from my mom, so they are getting a lot of wear.  But all classic and basic pieces can get boring.  That is why I love this belt.  Instant interest.  The Marc Jacobs bracelet is also super fun.  The chain links are actually stretchy.  It reminds me of a grown up version of bracelets I had as a kid.  And thats how accessories should be in my mind.  It's easy to take a risk on accessories.  Not that they all have to be bright and fun, it's also an easy way to dress up an outfit, or just make it so that you wear your classic pieces a little different than the next girl.
