This summer I’ve decided to practice the art of accessorizing. I’ve never been big on accessories, and as a creature of habit I tend to wear the two same, meaningful accessories every day. I always wear my watch (for practical reasons and because it was my 20th birthday gift from my mom), and the ring my bf got me two and a half years ago. I wear honestly almost every day and the proof is the tan lines I have from both. hahahaha
Anyways, this past spring I started following two petite fashion bloggers, Extra Petite and Wendy’s Look Book. I’ve been learning a lot about fashion, where to shop for petites, and sales! I have been turning my knowledge into inspiration for slowing transforming my closet into one of a sophisticated woman, as that is my ultimate goal now that I am out of college (still weird). I love reading both blogs as Jean of Extra Petite is a working woman in the East Coast that requires work appropriate clothes. Wendy of Wendy’s Look Book does more freelance work in the West Coast and has more of a laid back look.
From reading the blogs I’ve noticed that accessories completely elevate an outfit! That is why this summer, while I am not in school, I want to practice! I have collected accessories over the years, mostly as gifts, and they have not gotten much wear. There are quite a few pieces that I really adore and would love to show them off!
In the next couple of days (or today if I am too impatient to put things on queue hahaha), I will be rolling out a mini-series of posts focused on accessories and sharing with you the majority of my collection of accessories, where, and why I bought them. I hope you guys are interested!
