One Extra Pop

chevron skirt with color

A lot of times they say to take one accessory away before you leave the house. There is certainly something to be said for feeling overdone, especially in Austin, where people go to the store in sweats all the time. But sometimes an outfit doesn’t look quite done until you add one more thing, and I felt like this skirt and sweater combo needed a scarf in order to feel complete!

When you’re wearing an outfit with a very simple shape to it (like an a-line skirt and sweater like me) you can afford to add a few more elements. Try a big necklace, earrings, or a chunky bracelet. It will add that little pop of personality that will make people know you’re a stylish and thoughtful person, but in a nice subtle way, of course…

    Oh my heart, this skirt! I LOVE IT! Love the colors you paired with it! :)

    I’ve told you before, I love that skirt! I think you are a Last Call gremlin. I never find anything at the store because you got there first.

    The vibrant colors in this outfit are so pretty! I really love the print on your skirt too. I think the pop of pink from that scarf was a perfect addition.

  5. I read most of my blogs through my Google reader, and when I got to this post, I liked the outfit, when I could only see the top of it (sweater and scarf). In my head I was like “cool color combo!!” Then I scrolled down and cursed you in my head for putting together an outfit that somehow gets cooler the more you scroll! The patterned skirt, the classic boots – I wanted to kick you for your brilliance. Sigh……. you are my style idol :)

  6. I always try to add one more thing but thats usually because ive forgotten to wear any accessories at all.

    And those boots are caauuuteee!!
