In our family, it’s a pretty known fact that I am a “low maintenance” kind of getting ready girl. Yesterday, my teenage nephew and son were weeding in the garden. As I was getting in the van, they yelled, “Wow, you got ready so quickly. That’s impressive.”
It never occurred to me that they would notice, but considering I had been in a t-shirt and shorts, and minutes later I was dressed for a night out on the town, they noticed.
One of the biggest fashion trends this summer is the use of bright colors in our shorts, pants or skirts. I shied away from them at first, but am so glad I jumped on the band wagon. By pairing these purple Tanger outlet clearance pants with my $1 white tank and yard sale top, I easily created a dressed up look in minutes. By sticking with solids, the decision making process was simple.
I can’t emphasize enough how accessories always dress up any kind of shirt. Even by taking the simplest of T-shirts, and then adding a great statement necklace, you have a polished look. My recommendation is to only pick one statement piece on top, so if you want large earrings, go simple with the necklace or vice versa. I had a beautiful necklace to match the purple earrings, but it was large. Two large pieces in close proximity would over power, so I went leaned towards simple and omitted any necklace and then layered some bracelets.
I think for most of us, our hair takes the most time. It’s rare that I keep my hair down. I tend to lean toward some of my favorite “Get out of the Pony Tail” rut looks.
One of my Five “Must Dos” for dressing thrift states : Look for creative details on the sleeves or hems.
That’s definitely what caught my eye with this shirt and now it’s one of my favorite summer finds.
