"For this challenge, start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add."
Because I'm on a supposed month-long shopping ban (though I've already made a few exceptions - I guess you could call this more of a curbed spending month), I decided to use items already in my closet rather than buying something new to spiff up the jeans and tee combo. As I stood in my closet hmm-ing and haaa-ing about what to add, my eyes wandered over to my husband's side of the closet and landed on a 70's ish tie that he was given by his uncle on his 40th birthday. I've always been into interesting belts and using them to give a little more oomph to a blase outfit, so I decided to use this tie to jazz up this outfit and to serve as a color inspiration for the other pieces.
So...(I apologize for the grainy pictures - still trying to figure out photoshop, fancy camera, self-portraits, etc.)
