I’m not a big jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but there are definitely those days when the appeal of an outfit that is totally simple and completely comfortable trumps all other fashion fancies. As one who works from home, this idea is becoming more and more common. Despite the no-fuss point of a t-shirt and jeans ensemble, though, I still like to dress things up just a tad. On this particular day, I thought my vintage “gold” and “silver” beaded necklaces would be perfect against my heather-ed gray t-shirt. Not able to wear a completely neutral outfit, I added a little color to the mix by grabbing a few ribbons from my craft drawer and tying them onto the necklace strands making what felt like a brand new necklace!
To finish the look, I slipped on a pair of my “China” shoes (also know as my ninja shoes because I am nearly silent when wearing them!). They have recently become my favorite flats to scuff around the house in. Although their cloth body isn’t long lasting, I absolutely love the way they feel and will probably always have at least one pair in my wardrobe. Typically, I’ve purchased solid colored pairs in the past but this botanically inspired print really caught my fancy.

How do you like to accessorize your t-shirt and jeans?
On a side note, for those of you familiar with Design*Sponge‘s recent site makeover, you may notice the similarity between today’s outfit and the new Design*Sponge look. This was totally by accident but I couldn’t help chuckling about it after the fact. Maybe’s it’s the pink and red hued ribbons…
