What I Wore Wednesday {Everyday Chic}

Pin It
The weather is acting like it wants to feel like fall here in Eastern North Carolina.  The past few mornings I have awoken to crisp cool air... I know this because i'm snuggled under my blanket and the a/c is off, *wink*.  I almost welcome it when I let the pups out in the back yard... "Ahhh, Fall"... but I try not to say it too loudly because I don't want Winter to hear and think it needs to show itself any sooner than I'd like.  I don't like winter.... unless it's Christmas, in which case I can get over it and am happy... but then I'm back to my disdain for the season.

With the cooler weather I can break out my 3/4 sleeves, cardigans and sweaters, though it never really gets cold enough to wear a heavy sweater for long, so my collection over the years has dwindled to maybe one or two... I'll save those for a Winter WIWW post....

Today I'm linking with Ms. Lindsey of The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday {WIWW}... I'm calling this one {Everyday Chic}... Why?  Well, I've decided that this Fall/Winter I'm going to go easy on myself and not stress about my lack of beautiful sweaters and such... instead, I'm going to stick with simple, everyday solids:

Solid tanks, short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and long sleeves.

I'll pair them with everyday cardigans, wraps and such, as needed for the weather.

How is this {Everyday Chic} you ask?  Well, that's where Accessories come in to play!  Now, for a gal who makes handbags and such I will admit I've never been one to really accessorize beyond the bag... and shoes, I do love shoes.  But, I've decided it's time to really make accessories work for me and really live  by my slogan "Everyday Chic for Everyday Chicks!".

The plan:
Use Everyday Clothes: Solids and some prints, but keeping it simple, things that can be dressed up or down, because honestly... that is what I do anyway!

Stay Everyday Chic: Add accessories to make my outfit {Everyday Chic}!

WIWW: Use at least one WIWW post a month to show off my {Everyday Chic} creation!

Here is my first {Everyday Chic} outfit, Enjoy!

Sunglasses {Reaction by Kennith Cole via TJMaxx}
Necklace {Twillypop.. LOVE!!}
Gray Cardigan {Candies via KHOLS}
Pink 3/4 Sleeve Shirt {I've had forever}
Navy Cami {Target}
Jeans {Red Camel via Belk}
Shoes {Walmart on clearance}

Okay, seriously... this {Twillypop} necklace may or may not be the inspiration for my current accessory obsession; which may or may not be an excuse to buy more accessories... just sayin'.
I've been stalking eyeing Sara's shop for a while now and last week I came across this gray necklace with the pink rosette (my most fav color combo right now) and had to have it!!
I. Love. It.

I bought these shoes on clearance at Walmart last year, or maybe the year before.  I'm happy to say that they have actually lasted, are comfortable, and I really like them... which is very rare with a Walmart clothing/shoe purchase, from my own experience. (Which is usually why it takes a clearance item for me to buy in the first place... it's easier to keep my expectations low.  I'm not sorry, it's true.)

How do you stay Everyday Chic?  What's your favorite Accessory?
