Today's Everyday Fashion: An Outfit

I've had this shirt for several months, but so far have only worn it with shorts or jeans to run errands, certainly nothing special enough to call an outfit. This photo inspired me to get out my plum jeans, a leopard purse, nude heels - and for the first time in this shirt, I felt "dressed." Which got me thinking, when do clothes become an outfit? Is it a certain number of accessories? An amount of effort or creativity? I'm sure this answer is different for everyone, so tell me what you think. What makes the difference between feeling "dressed" versus just wearing clothes?
