Accessories Make the Outfit

This post is sponsored by Target.

Even though we are barely a week into December, my calendar
is already packed with holiday parties, events and festivities. With so many
events planned, it is sometimes a little hard to come up with creative looks
(especially if you may be seeing the same people again!).
This year, I am going to plan my outfits a
little differently and start by choosing my accessories first! Accessories have the power to transform
an entire outfit (even if it is the same dress or top),
so choosing those items first can make outfit planning a little easier.

I was browsing in Target last week,
and I picked up a new pair of shoes, a clutch, a floppy hat and a scarf for upcoming events! I
have a Pure Barre team party soon, and I thought it would be fun to pull out my heels and a
sparkly clutch for a night out with the girls (since we always see each other
in our workout gear!
) I am doing Christmas festivities with my extended family this coming weekend,
and it’s usually a casual ordeal, so I thought the floppy hat and scarf would
be the perfect “easy” accessories to add to my outfit!

Target has an amazing selection of  clutches, cold-weatheraccessories, and other fun accessories right now, so if you’re in need, head to Target—I
can assure you that you’ll find something to stand out! P.S. They’re also offering free shipping between now and Christmas so you can get everything you need!

      Thanks, Emily! Normally hats aren't really my "thing" but I ended up loving this one.
