Fall is upon us and my scarves are out! Take a basic outfit to the next level with a sassy scarf accent.

Grab your favorite colorful scarf and choose a shade or two within . Then add accents based on the color, or colors, that you chose (don’t be afraid to choose more than one!) . If you’re feeling daring, mix in a print like leopard! Beware of mixing too many colors when it comes to the major elements of the outfit, you don’t want to get too choppy. Pick unique neutrals to make your splash piece pop!

I love this eggplant tunic from Forever 21, it’s not only a great color but it also has great flow and an accordion pleated back.

What’s you favorite way to spice up your outfit?

Basic tees can take you a long way in your wardrobe. It’s important to have different types of basics for different seasons and occasions. This long sleeve Madewell tee comes in great fall colors and can be worn casual or dressy. I wore this outfit to a patio happy hour and dressed it up with leopard flats (difficult to see with the long grass!) and J.Crew jewels. I have been a huge fan of all J.Crew Group basics for a long time (J.Crew and Madewell). They always have great cuts, colors and fabrications. J.Crew has great linen and thicker cotton tees while Madewell has amazing jersey knits. Madewell’s tee shirts also tend to have longer sleeves and hems so you can hide unwanted areas; the sleeves go about halfway between your shoulder and your elbow.

Where do you buy the basics?

Everyone has a signature style piece that is frequently sported in their wardrobe. Mine is a statement necklace; and lately, I cannot get enough of J.Crew Jewelry. Every piece is sparkly, funky and attention grabbing (in the best of ways, of course!). To make it even better, I ended up scoring this piece for nearly eighty-five percent off of the original price! I enjoy being brave when it comes to jewelry. I am often told by others, “I could never wear that.” I disagree – If you don’t try you will never know. I challenge you to buy something that you like but isn’t quite “you” and rock it! I wasn’t born with a statement necklace on, I made them mine. It is surprising how much confidence can come from a single piece of jewelry!

One of my favorite things is when a friend tells me that she, “channeled her inner Jenna today.” I am never more proud than when someone branches out on my behalf. Try something new today and own it!

What is your signature style piece?
