Extras



Adidas Top | Detail bydetails Aztec Printed Shorts 
Promod Necklace |Braids & Bonds Bracelets | Leaveland pumps



Hello there!
Compensating for the gloomy weather and wearing brights today. 



Wore my dad's mint Adidas shirt, I wanted to try doing my own take on the sports wear trend. Okay maybe not, I just found the color totally complementary to these printed shorts from Detail bydetails
(Visit our fb page or website if you want to purchase these bottoms or check out our other prints.)
Shameless plug right there!


I know I did a whole post on why simplicity is best but I'm a bipolar contradicting blogger and will tell you guys how accessorizing could work too. :]


Sometimes the whole point of excessorizing is just to have fun. I know a few bloggers who do them so well! Despite the amounts of accessories they have piled on they still manage to look put together and polished. The key there is going for neutral tones similar to my necklace. No matter how crazy the colors are once you've got a neutral color on your side it automatically becomes a base that ties your outfit together.


Another option is keeping all the colors cohesive. Similar to these Braids and Bonds bracelets which I piled on. Just keeping the colors within the scheme of my printed shorts worked wonders for this look.

There you go! A few useful tips, I hope. :)

  2. I have to learn excessorizing. I'm not really so much of a fan of accessories but you mix them pretty well, Gillian.
