Most of the time it's the accessories that make an outfit. That's why editors always say to invest in handbags and shoes over clothing because that is where the quality of an outfit really shows, and in my case the eye is drawn. Today's outfit is kept minimal by my standands-  no prints, fussy textures, and rather colorless if you are familiar with my previous offerings but the accessories I'm wearing really amp up an otherwise normal outfit and not because of the reasons you may imagine. 

This blue bandana was found in an outdoor market last year in Nicaragua. My husband and I just had gotten married in a little beach town there and were honeymooning in Granada, a colonial city a few hours away. We were pursuing the outdoor markets and at this time the bandana trend was ALL the rage, and I had only accumulated this red one- that was worn a little too frequently. It was time for a new one, and one found in a far-away country in a bustling market for 60 cents seemed like the perfect time to pick grow my collection.
