Life Lessons From Jess - sometimes your outfit is asking for a scarf. 
This particular ensemble was getting a little too match-matchy, so I figured the scarf would kick up the unexpected notch a bit. Verdict? I love it. 

Also, someone mentioned that they had a hard time dressing up their gingham top for work, so I wore mine 2 times last week to prove how versatile this wardrobe classic can be. Stay tuned for outfit #2 later this week!
What do you add to your outfits when they are feeling a little too predictable?

  6. I love that skirt with that blazer! So cute!

  7. GREAT color combo and accessorizing! Seems like my accessories are always an afterthought when I'm rushing out the door, but my go-to for when my outfit seems boring is some weird flea market earrings or a necklace. You look great, girl!
