OOTD- Pleated Shimmy

You guys remember how I traveled all the way up to NYC just to go to a sample sale?? Well, this cute little handbag I'm carrying is what I took home. Isn't she purty?? I've been showing this one lots of love, I think the other bags are feeling pangs of jealousy.

Lately, I've been feeling like my outfits have gotten a little boring, for lack of a better word. Although I have things that I love wearing, I always feel like some of my ensembles could use a little bit extra something that I'm not quite sure I can put my finger on. I'm a firm believer in the power of a good accessory to take an outfit up a notch or two; so that's what I attempted with this scarf. It certainly helped add some interest to this pleated number.

Can someone learn how to take an outfit from boring to just right or is pitch-perfect styling an innate ability?

Outfit Details:
Black dress w/ pleats- Velvet Torch
Colorful scarf- Missoni
Striped handbag- Rebecca Minkoff (similar here)
Purple suede sandals- Loeffler Randall (available here)
Bracelets (from top to bottom)- Target, Forever 21, J. Crew


  1. I really love your scarf. It is way too hot here for summer scarves, but I love them! I don't think your outfits have gotten boring. I think we all simplify a bit in the summer. Or am I just telling myself that?

  2. Well I think you got the accessories right on this one...LOVE that Missoni scarf and the sample sale did you RIGHT!- that bag is fabulous.

  3. You, boring? No way, lady - this ensemble is fantastic - the pink shoes are the perfect pop of color and that bag - droooooool ...

  4. I love your new blog layout! I really like the way you styled this look with the pops of pink. And the accordion skirt peeking out at the bottom is super chic.

  5. Oh that bag is fab! Love the pops of color the shoes and scarf add.

    And I LOVE your new layout!

  6. i love your scarf! my fav are colorful loop scarfs.

  7. I love pleated everything :)<3
