accessories to jazz up your simple shorts and tees!

Last weekend I posed a simple question to my readers on Facebook... with the summer flying by so quickly, what would you like to see more of on the blog these days? I always love to get feedback from readers and you guys had some great ideas for posts that I hope to use in the coming weeks! One question posed was how to dress up/pull together the standard shorts and tee combo with accessories.  I am going to answer that question today!

I am a firm believer that basics make a great wardrobe. But alone they can be a little boring. Fear not though, great basics can go a long way when you simply add some fun accessories. And the best news is that usually accessories are the least expensive component of the outfit with the most impact.


Here is my formula for taking your shorts & tees to a new level!

Start with a simple tee, shorts and sandals
I love stocking up on neutral pieces to be the building blocks of your wardrobe.

Then add accessories depending on your mood and style...

Option #1: Add colorful accents! (scarf, earrings, clutch
This look is perfect for hanging with the kids at the park, weekend cookouts or a summer concert.

Option #2: Add classic staples! (denim jacket, sunglasses, belt)
For a classic, no-fuss summer look add a denim jacket and a belt and you are set to go!

Option #3: Add monochromatic pieces. (bracelet, bag, necklace)
Feeling stumped on what to wear? Take the basics and add monochromatic pieces (black or any other color!) for a pulled together look.

Which look do you love the best? Which is your favorite to utilize? I would love to know!

If you have any other post suggestions... add them to the Facebook conversation here!

see you around...
