the power of accessories

wear it wednesday.jpg

It’s only Wednesday, but I am exhausted! It is not even the holidays yet, but I feel like the days are getting shorter and there is always more to do! I have been coming home from work and going straight to bed lately and it has turned into a bad habit. I’m skipping meals and missing out on sleep so I can get laundry done or clean around the house. As I type, there is a giant pile of clean and folded laundry that needs to be put away, but my feet refuse to cooperate!

At both jobs, I need to wear something corporate but also can be approved to wear at J. Crew. This whole balancing two jobs thing is e x h a u s t i n g. There are some days I get to the college at 9am and then close the store until 10pm. I have had to get creative when it comes to outfits because my cooperate clothes aren’t practical for either job. That is why I love to wear black and be creative with the accessories. Most of my outfits this week were the same black pants, a different black top and a vest or cardigan for a pop of color. Having a go to uniform makes mornings a lot easier.


I bought this cardigan back in college while shopping with my mom at Coldwater Creek and we got ourselves matching cardigans. If I could, I would wear this one everyday because the neutral color is flattering and it goes with everything! For this outfit, I wore black pants, a black t shirt, my favorite cardigan (similar here and here) and stole my moms leopard scarf (similar here).

I would love to know what your go to outfit it.
