Three ways to wear: shorts and a t-shirt

Also see: how to wear the same thing every day and have it be socially acceptable.

Basically, when I'm home all day by myself studying, the last thing I really want to think about is getting dressed, so I almost always grab a white v-neck and a pair of shorts. But every once in a while I venture out to Walmart, or Chili's, or some other fine establishment in town where I want to look a little more put together. Enter: accessories. And no one knows the difference.

    Indeed, accessories make the difference. I barely use accessories myself, and that's something I regret, because the can change an outfit completely, as you've just shown.

  4. Very cute styling here! I tend to do the same thing as you, when I don't want to think about getting dressed I pull the exact same things out of my closet. I especially love the last outfit you put together :)

  5. I LOVE all three of these outfits.  You look so adorable.  It's amazing how a scarf can take a basic outfit and really step it up.  And I have the same scarf as in outfit #2!

  10. This is so true what you said about throwing on shorts and a tee.  I like your take on the accessories!  I am so summer-style challenged.  Maybe it has something to do with the blizzard this past February.

  12. Your "three ways to wear" posts are awesome! You have good ideas about how to get more mileage out of your wardrobe (note to self: get more scarves). I know a few bloggers who stopped their 30 for 30s early too. I got really burned out at the end.

  19. This? This is what I want to live in all the time. Lovely! I'm a scarf-a-holic and deeply believe in their potential to make any standard outfit new and fantastic at any moment.

  24. I don't think you HAVE to hem #2's shorts (unless I guess they'd unravel to nothing unless you do) I think the rough edges look cool. But I absolutely would steal the shorts in #3 from you in a heartbeat. I have no scruples when it comes to tailored shorts. Hee hee!

  25. This is oh-so-clever combo that I may just steal for inspiration on days when I choose to work from home!
