I came across a collection of bandanas that I had stashed away, and I decided it was time to get them out. Bandanas are one of those items that can be worn multiple ways. Because my hair was half way decent, I decided to keep it down and throw on some aviators with it.

I just realized that I have been coming back to my chambray shirt over and over again. ‘Why?’ you might wonder. Well, my friend, it is a classic piece in anybody’s wardrobe. It can be worn unbuttoned over a tank top with shorts, or it can be worn tucked into a skirt. Above, it helps to make the dress more casual, along with the other accessories like the hat and sunnies. They are great pieces for layering because they are easy to put under or over any other kind of shirt.
I am always trying to mix up my look, and I just thought that these sparkly headbands would be great for a a bit of unexpected sparkle and glamour! They can stand out or they can blend in with hair on top of them. All of these are from J Crew (shocker- I love that store!) and the brown one on the end is from Gap.
Some people do not categorize scarves as an accessory, but I do. Jewelry is the only kind of accessory. For instance, belts, hats, purses, shoes, and scarves all count as an extra to any specific outfit. Here are a few kinds of scarves that help add a bit of flare to my outfits and may work for you as well.
**Another great type of scarf that has many functions is a silk scarf. If you don’t want to wear it around your neck, use it as a headband, tie it to your purse, or even use it as a belt.
Scarves may not be as necessary as necklaces and watches, but they are great to have around and can help you layer your outfits.
