“Accessories make the outfit.”

I know I’ve heard the phrase over and over, and I’ve probably even spoken the words a time or two. And for the most part, I believe it. Two women can take the sames jeans and top and turn them into two entirely different looks by accessorizing. I think that’s what I kind of love about blogging outfits: sharing how I’ve taken something off the rack that hundreds, thousands, or however many people have and how I’ve made it my own.

But at the same time, I occasionallyΒ find myself struggling. I’m somewhat of a simple girl. I like classic pieces and don’t take too many style risks because that’s just not my personality. Sure, I love layering on a cardi, skinny belt, or statement necklace, but some days I’m more comfortable in a pair of studs and a single bangle.

And honestly, I’m kind of cool with it. I don’t mind being more timeless than trendy. It may not make for a super-interesting fashion post, but hey it’s honest. And it’s me.

How would you describe your style? Are you an accessories queen, clean and simple, or somewhere in between?

    I try to keep it somewhere in between when it comes to accessories and I love your look here! Great post!

    I personally like simple jewelry- I never undersand the bloggers who wear crazy “arm parties” with every outfit. It’s like “stop trying so hard!”

    What a pretty top! I love all the detailing on it!

    I’d say that blogging def got me into layering it on – before blogging, I barely had any jewelry or other accessories – I guess I am playing catch-up now!

      I agree with you! I think blogging has made me pay more attention to little details like selecting the right earrings or bangles.

    I agree that accessories can totally change an outfit! I’ve noticed through following your posts that you tend to keep it simple when accessorizing and I really like it since I’m very much the same way. A couple bracelets and a nice pair of earrings usually rounds out my accessories although I am trying to branch out a little with a few more statement pieces…we’ll see how it goes!

    Hi Lauren! I’m stopping by your blog for the first time and I’m so glad i did! You have such a beautiful layout. I know what you mean about the accessories, I have a hard time taking time to put more on when I am more of a classic and simple type of dresser. But I love the outfit you have on and the earrings look great! πŸ™‚

    I am more of a bright colours plus accessories type of girl, but I really like how fresh you look in this particular look. It’s really the crisp white shirt that made the whole thing!
