I was pleased to discover my $7.80 scarf was all I needed to do just that.
Metallic Geo Scarf
$7.80 at Forever21 To Buy
I own this scarf in two colors now; the purple pictured above and black. It is the perfect piece to pop an otherwise boring outfit. Case in point when my family and I were playing Friday Night Lights by attending a high school football game. All I wore were my go-to $16 jeggings from Forever21, the sage safari jacket, a striped tee and because you know I wear them with every outfit, the whiskies.
I wouldn't have thought much of this outfit except that I basically wore it again the next weekend with different footwear...which I am sure you find shocking. The outfit duplication reiterated that if you can build a wardrobe of easy basics and have a few fun pieces, you don't have to spend much.
CC Dad asked if I was going to write about my FNL outfit and I said "no." I didn't think it was exciting enough. In retrospect, I am pretty excited that $7.80 was all I had to spend to dress up my existing basics.
