You’ve made last minute dinner plans and you’re 15 minutes from darting out the door when you realize you have nothing to wear. You raid your closet, tossing every outfit over your head, until they gracefully float to the floor, into a colorful mountain of clothing. If you’re like me, you’ve changed 17 times, with multiple handbag options strewn all over, until you finally decide on something semi desirable.
I feel this way often, as I scramble to create new outfit combinations. The key is accessorizing. I have an extreme love for accessories, particularly handbags. Your accessories can add a pop of color, texture and interest to your outfit.
I was off to a spontaneous photo shoot in Central Park, dressed in jeans, riding boots, an ivory tunic, and my favorite brown leather bomber. I accessorized with a gorgeous coral printed scarf, and Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators. I featured my newest purchase, a gold quilted Kate Spade bag, which I adore.
The scarf, bag, and sunglasses created my entire look without depending on a specific outfit. Problem solved, and I felt fantastic. Next time you are desperate for a creative outfit, use accessories to create your own fabulous look.
