Lessons in Fashion: Add Something


Lessons in Fashion:
a sporadic series where I share little tips with you that help make my wardrobe stretch. 

I'm mixing up my What I Wore Wednesday this week with a little lesson in fashion because it's been a while since I've done one and I thought what I did with my outfit planning this week might be helpful to you. A little behind the scenes.

So, my "lesson" for today is add something. Often times, I'll layout my clothes on the floor and they look just, "meh." I head back to my room and find one little piece to add, and the outfit is vastly improved. I have three quick examples for ya of things I wore this week.


I knew I wanted to wear my flannel and my trusty Toms booties, but when I layed it out, it was kind of blah.

So, I dug around and found my solid black infinity scarf. I think it adds just a touch of cozy, don't you?


I had this vision of using this Rocksbox necklace as a sparkle item on "sparkle day" at school. I also wanted to wear my new-to-me purple Gap skinnies from Schoola (affiliate link). Purple and navy is a fun combo, but when I layed it out, it felt like it was missing something. 

I grabbed my gray, Old Navy pullover to add something, and I love the look. It added some warmth, some texture, and a little subtraction of being too matchy-matchy with the navy shoes and button up. 


This outfit could have been pretty blah. Black, white, gray. Nothing "wrong" with it. Just kind of boring.

I added a little pattern mix with a cozy blanket scarf and the outfit is instantly more interesting!

And last, I wanted to leave you with just one more outfit though it doesn't have an add something example.. If you're wanting festive yet subtle, I think this outfit really works.

It was red and green day at school. I could have gone all out, and there's nothing wrong with that at all, but I went for my green skinnies, some neutral chambray, and a classic plaid blanket scarf (which I've chopped in half).  If you need a festive piece, I highly suggest a red/green plaid blanket scarf. It's just classic! And I've worn my green skinnies more times than I can count, so those are always a win in my book, too, if you're looking to add a little color to your wardrobe!
