I have a bit of a confession. I’m super lazy when it comes to accessories. I’ll spend time carefully planning my outfit the night before, and then when I go to put on accessories the next morning, I either a) forget, or b) feel overwhelmed trying to pick them out. In a move to combat that I’ve started stream lining my accessories, creating a capsule collection of them and then switching out outfits that coordinate. I’ve created three different looks to share, all using the same accessories, just switching out the outfits! Here is the line-up of accessories:
A fun essentials clutch for my purse.
An investment purse to wear with everything.
Cute peep-toe booties to transition to fall.
Hoops that add a bit of sparkle but aren’t overwhelming in size (I go with smaller hoops because when I teach larger hoops will swing around when I talk….my students would say I’m pretty animated, ha!).
My favorite lip gloss for when I remember after I get somewhere that I didn’t put on lipstick, which is often.
I invested in several pairs of sunglasses this year and this pair was one of them.
I love stretch bracelets because they tend to not slide up and down my arm and they don’t have to be sized.
And finally, a cute cellphone case that I can switch out easily (I also have this one).
First up, is an outfit for work:
The top is Target and the black jeans are Madewell. If I had a meeting I’d switch out the jeans for these pants (and if you want to take the outfit even further into fall get the wool-blend version).
Second up, is an outfit for work or going out:
The dress I purchased for 60% off this weekend, so if you have a Gap/Banana Republic Card be sure to check it out! The denim jacket is on my fall list from Nordstrom.
And finally, an outfit to wear to go volunteer and then remove accessories and switch shoes for the gym. Or just remove accessories and shoes and do yoga.
These leggings are a thicker weight and the sweatshirt is comfy, but still stylish, layered with this sports bra and this tank.
