Guest Post: Vodka Infused Lemonade

Today I'm excited to have Angie from Vodka Infused Lemonade filling in for me while I'm on vacay. She's super fashionable and hosts a weekly linkup on Thursdays. Read more to learn about her blog hop and how to join the fun!

I'm really excited to be guest blogging here on Leeann's blog today. Thank you so much Leeann for having me. I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

Last week I needed to run to the grocery store and I was just going to put on a maxi dress and head out the door. Then it dawned on me that I could add a denim vest, my heart pendant and my cross-body bag to make my simple maxi dress into an outfit. Have you ever just walked out the door in simple jeans and t-shirt and then saw someone who added a necklace and blazer and thought wow, she sure looks put together??? That's exactly what I was thinking as I was putting together my outfit. Why head out the door in a simple maxi when I can look and feel more put together??? It took me only a few extra minutes and I felt much better about myself.

Dress (Gap). Vest (Old Navy). Necklace (J Crew). Watch (Michael Kors). Bracelet (Stella & Dot). Purse (Fossil c/o The Bay).

The key to creating an outfit is to slowly build on it. Start with a blank canvas. In my case it was a simple maxi dress. Next step is to add a cardigan, blazer or a denim vest. The idea is to complete the look. You can also do that with a scarf, once the weather gets cooler. Next add some jewelry. A great statement necklace, bracelets, earrings, watch, hat, you name. The key is to add some subtle touches. Then add some cute shoes, in my case I decided on some sandals. I then completed my look with a cross-body bag. Again the purse can bring the entire outfit together. It may seem daunting but play around with your jewelry, with hats, scarves, purses, shoes. It's exactly like dress up!!!!!!

The next time you're putting together an outfit, consider adding some finishing touches like jewelry, hat, scarf, fabulous shoes or cardigan/blazer/denim vest to make an outfit out it.

Hope you are enjoying your vacation, Leeann. I loved this guest post since Agi is one of my favorites. She totally changed the look of that navy maxi with the denim vest and some statement jewelry. =)

Have a great weekend!! <3 Ada.
