Last evening, Mark and I ventured downtown for dinner at a local pub; post an afternoon of watching college basketball games from home. Comfortably sporting an older jeans and t-shirt combo, I decided not to change for dinner. Rather, I chose to add a few key pieces--for impact.
1. A statement scarf: A statement scarf can dress up any ensemble! Here, I'm sporting a gorgeous silk stole (worn as a scarf). Check out my past review of this luxurious accessory here.
3. Fab Layering: This could have been accomplished via a whole array of standout clothing pieces: a poncho, blazer, cardigan, kimono... Today, I'm featuring this great Army-style jacket I found at a thrift store in Columbus's Short North while on a weekend getaway this past fall. The thrift shop is called Out of the Closet. This spacious shop is brimming with wonderful vintage finds; plus, all proceeds go to AIDS research. Isn't that awesome?
4. Impact Lip Color: In these pics, I'm wearing NARS' Funny Face. It's a gorgeous shade of fuchsia, and it definitely makes an impact!
Sunnies: c/o Firmoo
Army Jacket: Express (thrifted)

Share with me your thoughts on adding impact to a basic jeans and tee combo. You know I'd love hearing them!
Joy & hugs, T.
