Get Inspired : Accessories That Make the Outfit

It’s mid-winter and I am getting bored with just about everything in my closet. Anyone else having this problem?

Instead of following my urge to go shopping, I decided to take a closer look at what I already have – and most likely, haven’t yet worn.

I picked up this pretty little beaded Clements Ribeiro crossbody bag a while ago. I re-stumbled across it and got inspired. It has a bit of a Great Gatsby feel to it – and with delicate and sparkly beading, it’s bold and glamorous.

One great style idea instantly sparks another. I picked up this maroon suede dress by Jack by BB Dakota. It can be worn to date night or girls’ night out.

I actually love the simplicity of this peice – the styling possibilities are endless! It allows your fave accessories to speak for themselves.

The perfect outfit can’t be completed without the right pair of shoes. I chose these black booties from Kate Spade – they feature a cute little bow for just the right pop of feminine chic.

I love, love, love the look of layered chain necklaces and usually pick long ones for everyday wear. But for this look, I chose a shorter statement neck  made with oxidized silver chains and fringe for a touch of edginess.

So, before you go shopping for a new outfit, take a look at what you already have.

Whether it be a pair of heels you’ve been dying to break into, a pair of earrings you have yet to wear, or a dress that got pushed to the back of your closet,  seek out an element that inspires you  – and gets you excited about fashion!

Fashion should always be fun, and never forced. For more tips on getting inspired and finding your unique style, I recommend giving this blog post a read!
