And I usually have earrings added pretty early in the process. For this wardrobe, I tried to stick with a feeling of linearity, to echo the subtle stripes in the cardigan:
Scarves! I love scarves…
For those who do not want to wear sandals, a simple low-heel or flat casual shoe will be just as suitable:
I love wearing an inexpensive watch sometimes – the look on someone’s face when they admire your watch, and you tell them it’s a Timex, is priceless. And it’s an important reminder that good design can be found at a variety of prices (and the expensive does NOT automatically equal well-done!)
A cross-body bag that keeps your hands free for pushing the grocery cart is always useful:
A simple, timeless bracelet might be something that you slip on literally every day, at the same time you put on your watch. A small, personal signature…
Small earrings can be worn with anything – even shorts!
I’m so happy that casual canvas shoes are becoming more accepted as a legitimate leisure option. They don’t have to look like you’re running the marathon, either.
A simple necklace with a linear feeling can be worn with everything in this wardrobe – that first necklace is a PERFECT complement to the cardigan!
Don’t forget the usefulness of a solid or subtly patterned scarf in your accent color – sometimes it’s just the right touch of color:
Tote bags don’t have to be amazingly “blinged out,” nor do they have to cost the moon. They’re designed to carry things, really….
Sunglasses – ALWAYS!
And in the interests of being prepared for cool days, or slightly dressier activities, a pair of closed-toe shoes are useful:
Looking at this REALLY makes me feel like going to Ireland, or Scotland, or Maine…
