Accessorizing All Solids with Ooh Baby Designs + GIVEAWAY!

Over the years I’ve definitely learned to appreciate the power of both solid pieces and of accessorizing.  Solids don’t have to be boring, which is what I used to think.  One way to spice up plain pieces is by adding a little necklace, a scarf, a colorful shoe, a statement bag, or all of the above.  A simple addition can take an outfit from plain to something worth talking about. 
Today I’m collaborating with Ooh Baby Designs, using some of their accessories to spice up outfits made of all solid pieces.
Ooh Baby Designs is an Etsy shop filled with colorful handmade bags, very affordable scarves in tons of patterns and colors, and even home goods.  And you can monogram a lot of the items to personalize them even more.

Same Scarf Two Ways

Top: gift  |  Jeans: Target (similar, similar)  |  Shoes: Target (similar, similar)  |  Bag: Nordstrom (exact)  |  Scarf: c/o Ooh Baby Designs
Usually when I think “solids” I think “neutrals” as well, but they don’t always go hand in hand.  This outfit utilizes neutrals and color.  The top and jeans alone are fine, but I added a cute navy polka dot scarf from Ooh Baby Designs to top off the outfit and pull it all together a little more.  I could also have added this polka dot mustard scarf!
Tee: Everlane (exact)  |  Jacket: c/o Conversation Pieces (similar, similar)  |  Jeans: LOFT (exact)  |  Boots: c/o White Plum (exact, similar)  |  Bag: Nordstrom (exact)  |  Scarf: c/o Ooh Baby Designs
Here’s a second look with the polka dot scarf, this time made of all neutral solids.  I think the scarf totally makes the outfit!

Same Bag Two Ways
This bag is pretty easy to wear two ways…because it’s REVERSIBLE!  How awesome is that?  It’s got a really fun peacock print on one side and a quatrefoil print in navy on the other so you can change it depending on your mood and outfit.  It’s also got a few large pockets to help keep you organized.  Apparently teachers love this bag (for good reasons) but it can also be a beach bag or just an everyday tote.

But in honor of the teachers I leaned towards classroom looks for these bags.  I hope I did you teachers proud.  (Added bonus: both looks below also utilize the same white button up!)

Top: c/o Conversation Pieces (similar, similar)  |  Cardigan: Tilly’s (similar, similar)  |  Skirt: JCPenney (similar, similar)  |  Shoes: Target (similarsimilar)  |  Bag: Ooh Baby Designs

I mixed a bright blue skirt with mustard and broke up the color blocking a bit with a classic white button up.  The peacock print adds a fun pop to a classroom-ready (or office-ready) look!

Dress: Target (similar, similar)  |  Top: c/o Conversation Pieces (similarsimilar)  |  Shoes: Target (similarsimilar)  |  Bag: Ooh Baby Designs
If you’re not feeling the peacock print one day, flip the tote inside out and feature this more neutral quatrefoil print.  It goes great against a blank canvas like a grey t-shirt dress layered over a button up!

And NOW…you have a chance to win this bag for yourself!  Enter through the Rafflecopter below.

    I love the overall artistry of the site. Uniqueness is such a great quality. I loved several items including the Infinity Scarf Fair Isle Reindeer Winter Circle Scarf with Red Reindeer and Hearts. Thanks for a chance to win. 🙂

    Love the teacher totes. I'm always carrying one more thing – those pockets look like they'd be very handy!
