Here's How I'd Style That

I love jeans.  Especially trouser jeans.  I wear them casual.  I dress them up and wear them fancy. I just love a good pair.  There's just one problem.  Even though I'm quite tall for a woman, they always seem to require a good pair of heels.  Usually a good pair of heels takes my 5'9" frame to about 6' making me taller than every man in my office.

But I love those trouser jeans, so I wear them.

I think we all have them...those pieces in our closet that just require something a little more.  That could be a necklace with a dress or a bracelet with turtleneck, but the outfit just needs it. 

Here's a picture of a simple ensemble that I literally throw together on polyvore.com.

Here's How I'd Style That


Truthfully, there's a lot that I like about this outfit.  For one, the sweater is loose and casual, and it still looks like it's going to be warm.  I like the color of the purse.  I like the color and style of the shoes.  I'd only be about 5' 11" in those and taller than 3 guys in the office.  Without doubt we can all agree.  There's something missing.

And then enters Outfit Additions!



So, let's take this cute, but plain outfit and upstyle it's casual appeal by adding accessories.

Adding a few simple jewelry items like this necklace and these bracelets (or arm candy) will completely change your outfit.  For more style posts you can check out these posts here, here, and here.

Exciting news:  I just found out that Outfit Additions is having a special.  Use the promo code DAYS25 and receive 25% off of your purchase.  Wow!  The promotion ends this Friday so make sure you get on it.  I'm going to be shopping soon.

  1. when i was in my teens I couldn't bear to wear jeans. I don't know if it was the material they were made of back them but i used to find them really uncomfortable...now you have to see my closet because i have more pair of jeans than anything else. So sometimes i have to remember myself to buy colored jeans/trousers so it doesnt seem like always dress up in the same clothes. besides in some work enviroments jeans are not accepted so... I<3 jeans

    1. You want to know something funny? When I was in middle school and high school I wanted to wear a dress or skirt EVERYDAY. I don't know what was wrong with me.

      My workplace just went casual except when I'm on call which is about one a month. I love it!

    1. They're great, aren't they?

      Yeah, about the look. I'm still working on it. I'm not entirely satisfied. I think my main problem is that I love so many looks and I think they all describe me that it's hard to find the perfect one. It's almost as if I wake up every morning a new person. Ok, maybe not that extreme.

  17. My favorite piece is a nice slouchy sweater but man those are harder to find than one would think. The one you picked is fantastic. I found you on the follower hop and am your newest friend :)

    1. Thanks for following. I know what you mean about pieces being hard to find. I think the most difficult thing for me is to find a designer look-a-like in a reasonable price range. That's what's upsetting.

  18. I am loving this jewelery! So unique and pretty. I love jewelery more than any other accessory!
