Channeling a bit of Elaine (of Clothed Much) today and borrowing her pairing of chambray shirts with a fun necklace. She has a knack for making an outfit of basic pieces into something more jazzy with a little bit of ingenuity--the girl's got scarf tying, creative belting, and remixing down to a science.
Even with this source for inspiration and sartorial esteem boost, it still didn't seem like enough. Wearing my old nemesis, the khaki pant, I couldn't help but immediately worry that I looked dowdy or matronly. So I grabbed a handful of the most glamorous accessories I could find--big cat eye sunnies, bright and shiny bangles. Paired with the heart on my chest, it was finally enough to feel myself.
