Dress Up Your Basics (#2014BloggerChallenge)

Hi guys!
So this is one of my posts for the 2014 Blogger Challenge. This is the 8th post in the series, so if you want to see the previous 7, click the tab at the top of this page! This post was supposed to be an outfit of the day, so I thought that I'd do one showing you all how I like to dress up my basic pieces! 

Outfit 1: Girl it Up!
So for this outfit I wanted to go girly with my outfit! My basics are a white cold shoulder top (but any white top would do) and a pair of skinny jeans. To girl up this look I used jewelry. I wore a watch pendant necklace because its delicate and girly looking and helped to add something different to my outfit! I think that pendant necklaces are great for girling up some basics and are really easy to wear! 

Outfit 2: Edge it Up!
So I have been loving going a little grunge or edgy with my outfits lately, I think that it can look really chic and cool and doesn't look too over the top if done sparingly. In this outfit I took my basics (a nude v neck tee and a pair of skinny jeans) and used jewelry and a jacket to edge it up. My jacket is from hollister and it has 3/4 length sleeves and is a couple sizes too big (it's a large and I normally wear smalls) but it works really well because it leaves it looking casual and a little grungy. My necklace is from jewelmint and the metal plus rhinestone combo makes the jewelry girly and edgy at the same time!  

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and please let me know in the comments how you like to dress up your basic wardrobe pieces!
