My small sense of fashion

I don't claim to be a great fashionista.  I have other friends for that.  But, I do appreciate and love nice, clean fashion.  Nothing too trendy for me please.  In saying that, there are a few things I bought over the last year that have made me feel that I have WAY more clothes than I actually do.

Thick brown braided belt - I got mine from T.J. Maxx for $15 - total steal in my book!
I know sometimes its easier to just buy something you see in the store for full price.  But in the case of accessories I think its totally worth it to wait and find exactly what you want at the price you are willing to pay. 
My brown belt has really changed up a TON of my clothes. 

 High wasted skirt  - I got a navy high wasted skirt from the J.Crew outlet for $30.
I have been so surprised that I could wear almost everything I own with it!  I can throw on my jean jacket with it and some cute flats.  I can use my brown belt to add a little style to it.  I just LOVE the high wasted skirt these days.  It can be dressy and even casual.  It's a nice little addition to my wardrobe. 

Alright, so lastly I think that jewelry is a HUGE addition to my wardrobe.  I have never had fun jewelry that would spice up anything I was wearing.  It really makes your clothes go farther.  Jewelry even makes me feel like I have MORE clothes than I really do.

These are my favs that I have worn non stop lately!

This really takes on any color you are wearing!

And this one can go with anything as well.  I wore it with a t-shirt the other day.  It just really makes me feel put together!  Then to church I wore it with a dress.  I also think that it would look beautiful with a simple wedding dress or rehearsal dinner dress.  My friend Bonnie is going to possibly get it for her wedding this coming summer!

So, when it comes down to it, I like for my clothes and accessories to work with me.  I don't go for all the trends.  But, I do like simple little things that make my wardrobe stretch a little farther!  Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

I have a pretty basic and classic wardrobe but I like to dress things up with jewelry too! I have a chandelier necklace similar to yours that I found on sale last fall. It goes with a lot of different outfits and seems to compliment them all.

I find a lot of fun jewelry in the clearance section at The Loft and at thrift stores. I am always excited when I come across a fun necklace!
