Atlantic-Pacific is my favorite personal fashion blog—I love the way Blair combines colors and textures, and almost every piece of clothing she blogs about is one that I look at and think, “Wow, I wish I owned that, too.” (Sometimes that feeling drives me nuts; in this case it doesn’t for some reason.) Over the past few months, I’ve become a bit more comfortable with own style and the style I aspire to have, at least when it comes to dressing nicely for work and social events (let’s not get into my weekend look; it could stand to be improved; my boyfriend refers to one of my shirts as my “Sunday stripes”). But I’ve been kind of averse to the idea of adding lots of accessories. I love the look of an armful of bangles or a big, chunky necklace (or several layered necklaces), though, and so I think this year I’m going to embrace that and try to pile on more accessories. Blair is kind of a master at this, as you can see above, so I’ve posted three of my favorite photos for inspiration.
In 2013, we will accessorize.
