HOW ACCESSORIES CAN MAKE AN OUTFIT SPECIAL

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, with temperatures reaching up to 75 degrees, and today is supposed to be just as pretty. Ask me if I am still wearing leggings and a sweatshirt as I sit here typing this post? Lol! I am just like my daddy, and I am always cold and freezing. Joe, on the other hand, burns hot, and his skin is hot to the touch. You can bet that I am trying to steal some of his heat when we hop in bed at night, and my icy cold feet are tucked under his legs.

We have one of those “point and shoot” kind of thermometers to check temperatures. This kind of thermometer usually reads lower than an internal temperature gauge does, and his will run anywhere from 93° to 96° on them while mine hovers anywhere from 91° to 93°. He says that I don’t have any blood and that I am half-way dead. I say that he is like a candle that burns so bright that it only lasts a short time. If that is not true love, then I don’t know what is. Lol! Do you and your husband aggravate each other like this, or are Joe and I strange?

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a white tank with a caramel cardigan and jewelry by Kendra ScottFirst off, this long-line open-front cardigan looks orangeish, but it isn’t at all. This is a toffee color, and the website calls it Warm Coffee. I have no idea why my colors have been “off” this week, and I need to check out my camera to see what is going on. I wore this same cardigan in my Tuesday Try-On post last week, and it looked great with a rose color and a pair of jeans. I am wearing a medium in the cardigan, and I think that it fits great. This cardigan comes in several colors, and I also have the Raisin Arizona color, which is burgundy. These are two great colors for fall, and you will be able to wear these for years.

The top that I am wearing is the cotton-blend slub tank top that I’ve been raving about for weeks. When I find something that I love, I will order it in multiple colors. I have this tank in black, navy, hot pink (sold out), and this white. I wish that I could have also gotten the bright green one, but it was out of my size. The size that I am wearing is a size 1, which is the perfect size for me. The tank is thin but not sheer, so you will be able to wear it alone.

I want you to look at this handbag by Aimee Kestenberg! This is a gorgeous, very luxurious looking, mid-size handbag. This is the baby bear of handbags, not too big and not too small, but just right. This bag is leather and haircalf, and it has a top handle or an adjustable strap that you can use for a crossbody.

Here is a closeup of the handbag so you can see the richness of the black haircalf. This bag also comes in a leopard haircalf print that makes a big statement. Another plus about this bag is that it is available for five payments of 21.80, which makes it extremely affordable.

When I ordered these plaid straight-leg pants, I thought I would like them, but I was wrong. Instead, I love them! These pants look and feel so nice when you wear them. They are a nice substantial weight, and they feel like they were custom-tailored for me. They have a double hook-bar closure, and also a thin belt that is flattering. I am wearing my usual size 10 in these pants, and I think they fit me to a tee.

The jewelry sure dresses up a plain white tank. The Ryder collection, which includes the linear gold link earrings, the multi-chain necklace, and the matching magnetic bracelet, is both in multiple metals. Having different colored chains makes it easy to mix and match your jewelry. I also added the Maggie Bangle Bracelet and the Fallyn Cuff Bracelet on my right arm.

I wholeheartedly believe that accessories can take an outfit that looks nice and elevate it to amazing! Accessories are the icing on the cake, and they are what creates the “put-together” look that we all crave.

These pants would look great with pumps, heels, or even flats. But, today, I wanted to show you how you could wear higher shaft boots with cropped pants. These Sam Edelman Suede Ankle boots are gorgeous in person, and they have a buckle on them that adds a unique detail to make them stand out. I love the caramel color of these boots, and I am constantly reaching for them to wear with my outfits. They run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9 in these.

    Love the outfit and I must say that this outfit makes you look so slender! Or, perhaps you have lost weight? Anywho, it looks classy on you.

      Jodi, I’ve lost a few pounds, but I think it is the sweater that makes me look thinner. Thankfully, the first place that shows the loss of weight on me is my face. Of course, it is also the first place that shows when I gain weight. Lol!

    There is a lot to love here. I’m not really into a big bag though because I’m short and small boned so I love all crossover bags. Raisin is a great color but maybe not for a husband, I bought him a pair of jeans in rum raisin and the look on his face!!! He only wears blue jean and black Jean and black dress if forced. Sweats are gray and jackets are black and that’s that. Men!

      Love that look and those colors. The sweater does look burnt orange and would love one in that. Ha. You have been looking really slim lately and was intrigued about the IF you mentioned and have started it this week after buying and reading the books. I am super motivated right now. You are my motivator and inspiration !! You always look so great.

      Happy Fall !!!

        Dana, maybe we can hold each other accountable! My sister started with me and has already fizzled out, so now I have been going it solo. Did you join the FB groups?
