From Drab to Pizzazz | 5 Ideas to Turn Your Basic Outfit Into Anything But Boring | FASHION

If you've been picking up on my recent Instagram hints, it's true...I'm headed to Disney World! Gateway Worship leads and teaches at a worship conference called Experience Conference, which happens to be held on Disney property...lucky for us, right?! Work hard, play hard...sounds good to me! I'm sure we'll be squeezing in every bit of fun we can out of being at the happiest place on earth. Keep up with my trip via my Insta Stories and Snapchat (👻 juslikejess).

I don't know about you, but I've been seeing lots of posts on Instagram this weekend featuring WHITE outfits...everyone seems concerned with wearing light colors in the final hours leading up to Labor Day. Well, if that happens to be you, I'd like to take a moment to lighten your load (no pun intended.) Ready? There are far better things to be stressed about than wearing white after Labor Day. While I appreciate tradition, I don't believe in "no white after Labor Day" being a steadfast fact, I happen to think white is beaaaautiful in the winter. Read more about my personal white rules here. Now we can move on to the look...

Since white does seem to be a topic of discussion this weekend, I present today's look: Mickey meets Labor Day weekend. 😂 This Old Navy jumpsuit (similar here) was a piece I that sat in my closet for several months before wearing, but once I pieced it together with an outfit I loved, it quickly became an outfit-repeater item for me (which is saying a lot!). It's so comfy and makes for a great transitional piece into fall...I'll really enjoy wearing a chunky cardigan or cropped jacket on over it.

I found this clutch at Tokyo Disney, so I couldn't find an exact shopping link, but I included it anyway, because I wanted to show you how much personality can be added to a neutral outfit when paired with a fun accessory. The clutch combined with the pop of color in the sandals made for a much more interesting look than just black and white basics. Below, I'm sharing tips on how to add pizzazz to your basic look, with shopping links too!

Shop the look...

Jumpsuit: Old Navy (similar here) | Kimono: (similar here and here) | Hat: Forever 21 (similar here) | Lipstick: MAC | Sandals: Franco Sarto (found them in black here) | Mickey clutch: Tokyo Disney (similar here and here)

Other black jumpsuit options...


  1. Add a pop of color
  2. Add a bright lip
  3. Add a statement piece of jewelry
  4. Add a personality purse
  5. Add a hat

The key is to ACCESSORIZE! Build on your basic look with accessories that compliment your outfit. If you're not confident with styling your wardrobe (yet), I'd suggest mixing 2 of my suggestions above...don't go for all 5. :) As you can see in my look, I incorporated 4/5.
