Mules and Bows

One of the things I love most about fashion is its ability to adapt to personalities, moods, and surroundings. Most of the time, my style is classic merging toward the feminine lane. Summers I like to go a little boho, fall I’m admittedly more preppy (because who can resist plaids?) But this outfit is a great example of how a single outfit can be transformed with just a few key accessories.

It starts with the basics: a pair of light wash jeans and a signature black shirt; ideal for summer, ideal for any style. This particular day, a Saturday, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to elevate my style a little so I opted for a fantastic (and so comfortable) pair of this season’s it shoe – the mule – and added a statement accessory – a silk scarf – tied in a fun and whimsical way.

But with the addition of loafers, a blazer, and a watch, or slides, a kimono, and piles of gold jewelry the whole look would have been completely different! That’s the beauty of filling your wardrobe with high-quality basic pieces and filling in every year with some of those on-trend pieces that may fit your mood for the week.
