Your Accessories Can Add Fun to your T-Shirts

Quote of the day: “A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.” Hugh Downs

You’ll notice T-shirts are really part of most women’s everyday outfits if you have been people watching around your town! But are there ways to wear your t-shirt and still stand out from the crowd? That’s the idea behind our theme this week thanks to a suggestion from Jill!

The 3 of us explored the idea of having the focal point be on the bottom half of your outfit earlier! Now we’ll try to change the focus to be on some big, fun or bold accessories!

Jodie’s (50+) Outfit: My accessory of choice for this experiment was my fedora!

And when I say my fedora, I really mean my husbands hat! But I wear it more than he does, so that kinda makes it mine, right?

This would be one of those items that you could shop in the men’s section or your husband’s closet and no one would be the wiser! The 3 of us recently wore our hats for a casual time and dressier time if you missed it!

But I didn’t stop at the hat, as my only accessory to spruce up my t-shirt! I added in long earrings and sunglasses too!

I vacillated on whether it’d be appropriate to wear a hat for work, and I’m sure that would depend on where you are working and the day! And certainly you’d take off your sunglasses when you’re inside.

But relatively big earrings could be a great way to bring the attention up towards your face! In fact, all 3 of us wore some variety of dangle earrings. Colorful earrings would be a great purchase because then they’d go with everything!

I know many women always hate how a hat smushes down the hair when you take it off.

My answer to that concern, is to leave it on all day!! But maybe another thought is to wear a hat that is a tad bigger than normal. Like I said, this is my husband’s hat, so it’s not super tight on my head! Either that or my curls have a super power to stay curly no matter what–ha ha!!

The rest of my outfit is pretty tame & subtle, I think!

I wore my polka dot jeans and cuffed them to show off the sandals more!

The white sandals are a recent purchase since DSW was having their sale! They are a brand called Spring Step which are so comfortable, and the heel isn’t too high!! I’d really gotten out of the habit of getting white shoes for the summer, but I’ve seen more and more of them recently. If you like your toes covered, but want some fun on your feet, then you might appreciate this pair! But if you like sandals as much as I do, then this pair looks almost as comfy as the ones I’m wearing!!

Jeans: Garnet Hill-thrifted (similar here solid colored)~~Top: (similar here)~~Shoes: Patrizia by Spring Step (here)~~Hat: H&M (similar here)~~Earrings: thrifted (similar here)~~Sunglasses: (similar here)

Nancy’s (60+) Outfit: Nancy’s accessory of choice for this category was an interesting necklace.

She chose this three dimensional floral necklace that she bought on one of her trips she had been on in the last couple of years!

A statement necklace can be the perfect way to bring all the attention elsewhere!

For example, if you aren’t a fan of crew neck t-shirts, then I think a fun necklace can make you forget that fact! You may think that it’s somewhat silly to wear such a fancy necklace with just a t-shirt, but that’s the yin/yang part that makes it so fun!

And the wonderful thing is you don’t even have to spend much money to get great necklaces! For example if you’ve been participating in the tassel trend, then this one might catch your fancy! Or if you are ga-ga over turquoise like I am, then this necklace is quite the unique piece! Of course a floral necklace can’t be beat at this time of year either!

Even though the necklace is the big star of this look, we didn’t want to omit other accessories like the earrings and a bracelet!!

Nancy has only recently embraced the longer earrings! I’d love to hear other women’s opinion about the length of earrings!! Now that I have short hair, I love the longer earrings even better because you can see them so much easier!!

But even some of the stud earrings have fun colors or designs! I almost bought this pair a couple of weeks ago because I thought they’d go with everything. Or here’s another pair that are small yet fun!

Since I decided to have Nancy wear blue jeans with her t-shirt, then I wanted her shoes to pop!!

Nancy’s floral shoes don’t have a tall heel, so she is very comfortable wearing them around! If you like wedges for stability better, then this pair looks perfect! I thought the description of this pair almost sounded too good to be true?? I’m lucky that I don’t have issues wearing heels (yet..ha ha) but could this really be true? And as a public service to you all, I went ahead and ordered them to try them out! I’ll keep you posted!! You can check out my Instagram post to see them! I was super, duper impressed at the shipping time!!

Jeans: Levis (similar here)~~Top:  (similar here)~~Shoes: Nine West (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)

Charlotte’s (70+) Outfit: Say hello to another owl item from my mother’s closet!! This is the accessory she chose for her look!

Now I realize that even if you carry a purse into work, you then set it down and it’s not really part of your outfit! That’s why I had my mom also put on long, tassel earrings! But isn’t that purse just the funnest? If you are a fan of owls also, then I linked to a couple of other owl purses below. But if you are more of a dog fan, then here’s an option. Of course, it wouldn’t be fair to the cat lover’s out there if I didn’t show a feline purse!!

My mom has been wonderful about wearing her different colored jeans!

This pair is mint, but she also has a red pair, print pair and a lilac pair!! If you don’t love the skinny versions of jeans then I went on a search for some straight legged jeans! Would you consider a pink pair with a raw hemline? Or these Gloria Vanderbilt jeans come in a ton of different colors for very little money! I know Nancy has a couple of this brand in her closet and loves the way they fit!

My mom’s other trendy item is her set of earrings!

I’ve rounded up a bunch of earrings at the bottom of this post just for your viewing pleasure! I’m not sure exactly why, but I’ve been on an earring binge lately. Maybe because there are so many fabulous sets everywhere I turn!!

Finishing off my mom’s outfit are her gold shoes!

The metallic shoes are one of those items that really work anytime, don’t you think? I know I wear my silver sneakers that were DIY’ed more than I ever thought I would! If you have been vacillating over a pair, then you can try them out inexpensively first and make sure you’d wear them!

And if you aren’t a huge fan of sneakers then you’re still in luck. Because the metallic shoes seem to come in so many different varieties too! Like these loafers would be the cat’s meow! And the bow sandals are super big right now, if you’ve been perusing footwear as much as I have!

Jeans: Fabrizio Gianni (similar here)~~Top: Anvil (similar here)~~Shoes: SO (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)~~Purse: Far Nine(similar here or here)

So those are our ideas of how you can add many different kinds of accessories to your t-shirt. Whether that means wearing a hat, a bold necklace or even a fun purse, they can be a great way to spruce up your tee!

Thanks to one and all of you for your support. It means more than you know!

For under $25, I rounded up some fun and flirty earrings! And, a huge “no” to my mother—you’re not allowed to buy those owl earrings—ha ha!!

  • Three terrific ways to dress up your tees! Of course I adore your polka dot jeans and it reminds me I haven’t worn mine in ages. I really like how you cuffed them. Charlotte’s tee and owl bag are adorable. Nancy’s shoes and statement necklace really dress up her tee and jeans wonderfully.

    Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!

    Jennie – A Pocketful of Polka Dots

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I ended up having to cuff these kinda weird so the polka dots still showed instead of the plain inside!! And I finally altered them so they fit better. All day that I was wearing them, they kept slipping down, which is so annoying. Now that I finally got off my butt and took in the waistband—they are SO much better. Now why didn’t I do that sooner? I bet I’ll wear them more now!!
      Thanks for all of the love to mom & Nancy too. I know they really appreciate being included in the comments. I’ll forward it to them right now!!
      XOXO

  • I am not sure what inspired me to grab a scarf and wear it with my jeans and t-shirt the other day, but I received a compliment from one of my son’s 3rd grade classmates! I bet he doesn’t tell his mother he likes her scarf, ha ha!

    Off to order that shirt your mom is wearing. <3

    • Jodie Filogomo

      What a great idea to grab a scarf Audrey!!! I think that’s the most fabulous thing when a small boy compliments your outfit—talk about good taste!!

    Look at the figures on you three ladies! Such lovely slim figures you all have! You all look great! I’m a big fan of statement earrings and OMG I am so in love with that owl bag of your Mum’s!! #TeamLovinLife

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Well isn’t that such a nice thing to say Min!! I know mom & Nancy will love to hear that compliment. Although you realize we are our own worst critics, because that’s not what I hear them say when we’re taking photos—ha ha!!!
      I do think that earrings are a fabulous way to bring the attention to our faces!! I’m so glad that Nancy (the 60+ model) is starting to embrace bigger earrings finally!!
      XOXO

  • I need to buy tassels earrings! Beautiful! And a hat looks very good on you and the backdrop too!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      You absolutely need tassel earrings—they really are so fun, Nancy!!

  • Kathy Marris

    I’m a big fan of statement tees and accessories that pop, like big earrings and chunky necklaces. I love the quote on your mom’s t-shirt. It made me smile. It is great to see that as we age we still like to have fun with our attire. Life’s way too short to be boring! #TeamLovinLife

    I’m one of those rare women who can wear hats – my hair is so think, it just bounces straight back. I laughed at your mother’s t-shirt – my mother’s favourite knock about t-shirt is one she got from my dad’s hometown. It’s a tiny town in the south of New South Wales & has about 1000 people in it. This t-shirt, that Mum adores, says: London, Paris, Tumbarumba. #TeamLovinLife.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      And don’t you get a little more attention when you wear a hat?? I think since many women don’t wear them as much, that you tend to stand out when you do wear them!!
      I love your mom’s t-shirt!! It’s fun to have a laugh about life, so why not have that laugh on your t-shirt??
      XOXO

    • Charlotte Miller

      I’m loving that creative T—it’s nice to express where our hearts lay!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    I guess when I wear a t-shirt like the second two, I wouldn’t accessorize…but your t shirt is more fashionable and versatile…the fedora looks perfect with it!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      And that’s probably why I don’t wear a t-shirt that much, because I think of them as such casual wear! But the 3 of us have so many fun accessories, and my reader was looking to add some spice to her t-shirts—so it’s an idea!!
      XOXO

  • Totally agree- it’s all about the attitude. Thanks for linking up with the Blended Blog

      I wasn’t a huge fan of the t-shirts with writing on them at first. But I think when you find one that speaks to you–it’s totally fun!!

  • I’m not sure i’m down w/ the necklace and the tee, but that HAT! and the OWL! Love.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I hear you Carol!! They do compete with each other!! I should have had Nancy wear her choker necklace, maybe??

      I haven’t worn them much because they always slide down and are so annoying. Well after these photos, I finally altered the waistband, and they are SO much better. Now why does it take me so long to do those things?? Ha ha!!
      XOXO

  • Jill Clark

    Thank you so much Jodi!! These are such great ideas. They are exactly what I was looking for! I have tons of fun t shirts that I don’t wear anymore because I started feeling so blah in them. Your ideas have given me new inspiration!! Thank you!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m so glad you liked it Jill!!
      I hope you’ll like next week too—you were the catalyst for those posts also!! I really appreciate having new ideas, so thank you!
      ps…I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen the categories tab where I organize all of the old posts : http://www.jtouchofstyle.com/outfits/. There are a bunch of Knit Shirts/T-Shirt posts under Tops, if you want to look back?

  • How fun Jodie! Love the hat, the necklace on Nancy and the owl bag. Cute! So those are the new shoes. Love them! I agree , statement items add such pizazz to a tee.
    have a great day

  • Judy Gramith

    You look absolutely darling in that fedora and I think it’s time for you to have one of your own. Ive picked up a couple at Target on sale at the end of summer! Your cute curls sticking out from beneath the hat are so charming!! I’m also in love with your polka dot pants!!! They’d be faboo with a striped top in those same colors (gray and white?).
    I’m feeling like Nancy’s gorgeous necklace is competing with the graphic on the T-shirt. The necklace should take center stage in my view…
    Charlotte’s purse is perfection and the gold flats rock!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I just bought another floppy hat last weekend—my love of hats knows no bounds lately!! And the funny thing is Rob bought another fedora—so I just consider it mine—it’s perfect!!
      I can see what you mean about Nancy’s necklace. It’d probably work better on a plain shirt??
      Mom will love it that you love her purse….I’m sure that I’ve suggested getting rid of it at some time…ha ha! Good thing she never listens to me!!

      Hi Melanie!!
      I’ve stopped dying my hair recently, and I consider the greys to be a natural highlight—we’ll see how long it lasts…haha!
      Thanks for the intro to your sisterhood!!

  • These are great suggestions! I’m with Nancy on using statement necklaces to jazz up a t-shirt, but I especially appreciate yours and Charlotte’s tips because they give me something new to consider that’s outside my box. That’s what’s so great about your blog. By featuring three different ladies, there’s always a variety of tips to take away.

    Your fedora and sunnies give your look a hip cool vibe that’s equally at home in the city or in a coastal town. And Charlotte’s use of colorful jeans and a statement bag come together for a quirky look with plenty of personality. You know I’m all about that! Thanks for giving me new options to consider when it comes to jazzing up my tees!

      I totally know what you mean, Liz. I tend to get into a habit (dare I say, rut?) when I think about how to style something in particular!! Having fresh eyes can be the change I always need! I think that’s one of the reasons I love reading other women’s blog so much—the ideas are endless!

    Accessories are so much fun, and you can find so many cute items for great prices. I liked all your outfits and the way you featured different accessories in each. Great idea to pair them with a tee shirt to show how they can spruce up a simple, casual outfit. – Amy

  • Laura

    I’ve just ordered a few larger earrings to wear for the summer and can’t wait for them to arrive! I love how they look with any kind of blouse! All of you have such fun accessories and they really do make your t-shirt looks more dressy!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I can’t wait to see what you ordered Laura!!
      I always feel that my smaller earrings never get noticed as much!
      Wait until you see the pair I just got from Coruu—they are big yet the lightest pair ever!! https://www.instagram.com/p/BU0CxSNgl-s/?taken-by=jtouchofstyle
      The post should hopefully be out next week!!

  • Accessories are a great way to dress up a tee and make it a little more special. And if I’m wearing a hat there is a good chance I’m not talking it off because I’m hiding under it.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      LOL!! That’s exactly why I’m usually wearing a hat—too!

  • ADA

    I have always believed in the power of accessories. While those tees are all cute I love your wedges and fedora, your mom in law’s necklace and your mamma’s statement earrings. Well done once again, ladies!

  • You all look so adorable in your tees! I am a big graphic tee fan although I went through a short phase of thinking I was too old. Society can really push stupid things on women! I love your hat too! Peace!

      I thought the same thing before blogging—it’s a good thing that we are smarter now, right?

    I’d love to wear a hat, but the kind of thick curly hair I have makes a hat perch on top of it and look most peculiar.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ha ha!! That made me laugh Stevie!! You just need a couple of sizes bigger maybe?? 🙂

        I can never find a big hat for my big hair. I can wear a baseball cap though as you can adjust the Velcro strap at the back.

  • Love these fun looks and your mums tee is amazing!

  • Fun post, Jodie. All the outfits are cute, but your mom’s is the home run today for me! That bag ties everything together so well… I love funky/offbeat statement handbags to begin with; they’re a great conversation starter (my go to is a mini straw tiki hut purse…it comes with me to every summer party)!

    Also love the suggestion to juxtapose a tee shirt with a swanky earring…definitely going to try that (although I don’t do a lot of t-shirts in general).

    • Jodie Filogomo

      My mom has such a collection of bags since she never throws any out!! It really is a fun way to perk up an outfit, right??
      I need to see that straw tiki hut purse—it sounds amazing!!
      I really don’t wear many t-shirts in public either—except to the baseball game! But I am amazed how many women I see wearing just a t-shirt even at church!! I always want to add some fun and bling to their outfit!!

    You were so lucky to find Garnet Hill jeans in a thrift store Jodie! These are fabulous! Love the shoes you are wearing and the hat! I am a big fan of hats. Can’t wear them to work, but I do wear them when I can on the weekend. Plus, the ones with bigger brims help keep the sun off your face. This is a great outfit! I LOVE Nancy’s necklace! Also like how it dresses up a tee shirt and becomes the focal point. You mentioned long earrings. I do like them a lot, even with longer hair. I have found that they work best with things that don’t have a collar, and work especially well with lighter tops in the summer. As long as they don’t land on a piece of clothing, they sure do work for me. Currently loving the tassel earrings! Your mom’s mint green jeans are SO pretty! That is such a fresh color for warmer months, and they are perfect with the on-trend metallic flats! Pastel jeans are just so pretty and feminine! Once again, you gave me some great ideas about how to elevate a basic tee shirt!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’ve had these jeans for a year now, but I hardly wear them Karen. And I think it’s because they were a little big in the waist and kept sliding down all day—it was so annoying. So after these photos were taken, I altered them by taking in the waistband—and OMG—it’s amazing how much better they feel. Even if you can’t tell in the photos, a good fit makes such a difference in how your clothing feels!! Now i’m just wondering why it took me so long to fix these jeans..ha ha??!!

    Morning, Jodie! Cute ideas! I especially love your outfit! Question for you: what bra are you wearing? It works great with that t shirt. Ever thought of doing a post on bras?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Hi Barbara!! Thanks for the compliment. This bra is actually from Spanx? Did you know they sold bras? I didn’t until I won a gift card from the company, and decided to try out a couple of their bras!! And I’ve been loving them!
      I did a post http://bit.ly/2sfSfw8 about bras last year!! I should maybe do one on the Spanx company in the future because it’s been such a great find??
      XOXO

      • BarbaraRP

        Will check out your bra post from last year. Thanks, Jodie! If you’re so inspired, then “yes” do a post on the Spanx company.

      • I’ve had spanx bras before too and they are super comfortable.
        A bra post would be fab Jodie!
        Especially with Nancy and Charlotte’s input… demanding comfort and function from our undies!?
