Accessories Day 1? Check!

Necklace: Thrifted
Dress: Thrifted
Cardigan: JCrew
Skirt (under the dress): Thrifted
Tights: ?? Maybe KMart?
Shoes: Target
Coat: Target, I replaced the tacky buttons it came with originally with vintage buttons

Ok, so day one of accessorizing went pretty well. I really like what I ended up wearing, but I will admit that wearing accessories definitely made me dress up more than I normally would. I was certainly the most overdressed person at the Wednesday night bluegrass jam. Not that that is SO bad (I would rather be over-dressed than under-dressed), but I think I need to work on the art of casual accessories! Also, I went big with one statement necklace, but I didn't work in any other jewelry. That almost feels like cheating. I guess I have a few things to work on!

P.S. Also, I just made my photo border a little more snazzy! My photoshop skills are deplorable, it took me forever.


  1. 3things...

    #1: I am so in love with the pearls and the white skirt peeping out! Seriously, those details add so much pizazz to this outfit... great idea!

    #2: Fabulous coat. I love the new buttons!

    #3: One major accessory for your first day is not cheating... baby steps are crucial so you feel comfortable and like you! And the necklace is such an attention grabber (unlike a small pendant or something, for instance).

  2. You look lovely. I adore the necklace, the skirt under the dress and your beautiful coat. What a wonderful first day...and I bet you were the best dressed person at that bluegrass jam:)

  3. You look great in this outfit! I especially love the second skirt poking out.

  4. This is one of my favourite outfits, you really suit green, and the petticoat and pearls is inspired!Plus, I don't think you should sell this dress

    You look way too awesome in it!
