Try-it-out Tuesday teaser

Tongue-twisting title, right? ;) Try saying it 10 times fast.
I made a list today of Try-it-out Tuesday ideas, and they should happily carry me well into 2012. But here's a preview for this week's:
Tuesday's mission is to design an outfit based on these shoes and necklace. I know, design is a big word! But somehow "thrown together" doesn't sound right. Given that shoes are often a (disappointing) afterthought and jewelry is what I can grab on the way out the door, it will be a learning experience to start with these items.
Stay tuned for the answers to these perplexing questions: 
Is it OK for my jewelry and shoes to match? 
Will I wear those Salt Works jeans again
Will this necklace be fun and funky, or just weird?

  4. Carrie,
    Thanks so much for your comment. I love this idea of Try It Out Tuesday. I think that's a great way to keep yourself motivated and brave.
    I don't think there is anything wrong with planning an outfit around your accessories. For instance, some statement pieces would never be worn if we didn't take the time to plan out an outfit around it. If you're going for making a statement, we kind of have to make sure it's the right look we're going for, and we don't want to look like we have too much going on.
    I see you just started your blog in September! I'd love to follow each other. I really think support is key when it comes to blogging!
    Good luck with your outfit today :)

  5. Thank you for your thoughtful and supportive comment, Courtney!
    I noticed that while I have a decent closet, I have a bad habit of wearing the same old things every week. So Try-it-out Tuesday is supposed to remedy that as well as help me figure out my style.
    I added myself to your blog followers. Looking forward to seeing you around here! :)
