30 Day J.Crew Challenge: Accessories Make All the Difference


Hello, my fabulouses, and welcome back! Today’s 30 Day J.Crew Challenge outfit focuses on why accessories make all the difference! Since the beginning of my existence, I have loved accessories. As an accessory loving toddler, I sported a denim hat and Rugrats watch with my Huggies pull-ups to transit from daycare to McDonald’s with ease. As a big girl on a budget, I wear a scarf to change the look of a basic outfit.

So, without further ado, let’s see how accessories transformed the first J.Crew Challenge ensemble. Come on, it’s time to get fabulous!

Photo Shoot Fact: Being lost in Marion, Virginia had its plusses–the gorgeous and quaint town made for fabulous pictures!
I took this picture outside our hotel in Abingdon, Virginia. The mountains were breathtaking!
Good morning, Abingdon, Virginia! I took this lovely picture outside my hotel before making my way to Bristol, Tennessee.


What are those blue and red bracelets the VIP has been wearing?

Blue: While stopping for gas and snacks at a TravelCenters of America store, I spotted the St. Christopher Fund bracelets at the checkout. Curious, I purchased a bracelet for one dollar and researched the foundation. The St. Christopher Fund is a non-profit organization that helps truck drivers suffering from financial hardship due to medical problems. This wonderful campaign will run at all TA and Petro locations from August 22 through September 30, 2013. “During the event, guests and employees at TA and Petro Stopping Centers will be invited to make donations of $1 or more. Commemorative 2013 wristbands will be given to everyone choosing to donate. Donations may be made at all company restaurants, travel stores, fuel buildings and truck service facilities. One hundred percent of all donations will go to the St. Christopher Fund.” (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/8/prweb11052237.htm) To learn more on how you can help, please visit http://truckersfund.com/.

Red:  On his way home from a business trip in California, my dad picked me up an officially licensed Lifeguard tee which came with a bracelet promoting the company’s products. “Beachlifeguard.com is your # 1 spot for Officially licensed Lifeguard apparel and accessories. Please  browse through [their] selection of men, women’s junior and children products. [They] will make sure you are  looking your best in [their] LIFEGUARD apparel…” (www.beachlifeguard.com)
