Accessory wishlist

I often overlook accessories and don’t spend a lot of my budget adding to my collection. I forget how much one or two accessories can really enhance an outfit or make an outfit complete.  A belt can completely change the style of a shirt and jeans.  The length and style of an earring can change the vibe of an outfit – just adding hoops, dangly, or sparkly earrings can make a simple outfit more dressed up.  I know there have been days where deciding to wear earrings has made me feel more beautiful than if I just kept my ears bare.  A scarf, a necklace, whatever it may be, can make all the difference.

Since my collection is limited, I’ve been creating more of a wishlist lately to add more items to what I already have.  Here are some of my favorites I’d like to spotlight.

  1. Tory Burch sunglasses.  I have one pair of Tory Burch sunglasses that I really like.  I had bought some brand new from Vince Camuto only to lose them the next day in the airport so I replaced them with Tory Burch.
  2. Rag & Bone scarf.  A few years ago I bought a bunch of scarfs, mostly black ones.  I forgot about them for awhile but revived them recently to add an element that warms me up to my outfit.  Of course it’s not as warm as wearing a winter scarf, but you wouldn’t wear that in the office anyway so this is a way to keep a bit warmer but add some style to a simple solid color shirt.
  3. Patagonia hat.  Because Patagonia is one of my favorite brands for their sustainability and quality products.  Their hats are great for a casual day out around town (or covering a bad hair day).  Also great for sun protection during a hike.
  4. Halogen belt.  This would pair well with a slim t-shirt dress to dress it up a bit.  This one comes in black and pink.
  5. Janessa Leone hat.  Great sun hat for summer/spring look (or a beach vacation!)
  6. BP scarf.  I had to break away from everything being black, white, or grey, so this scarf is a great splash of color.  It’s also only $12! (on sale!)

 

Next up – some jewelry favorites that I’d like to add to my collection (minus one that I do already own).

  1. Lord & Taylor earrings.  These are 14kt white gold earrings in the shape of small hearts.  I own these!  They are simple and cute for days you just want a subtle earring.  On sale for $40 (originally $100)!
  2. Sibilia ring.  Sold by Anthropologie, I really like this because it’s unique.  It has a rustic look and comes in 2 different colors: “purple motif” and turquoise.
  3. BP tassel necklace.  I like tassels with the right outfit combination, where it isn’t calling too much attention to itself.  This one, especially, is pretty simplistic and is on sale for $12!
  4. Baublebar bracelet.  If you haven’t noticed, I like jewelry that is more minimalist.  I think it can add a nice element of style to my outfit but I don’t need jewelry that is the center of attention either.
  5. Cluse watch.  I don’t usually wear a watch since I have a desk job (think “clink clink” on the keyboard) but a slim watch really adds classiness to an outfit.  It’s very lightweight and minimalist.
  6. Jennifer Zeuner necklace.  I hated gold until recently when I was shopping for my engagement photos last year, it seemed to be much easier to find gold than silver because it’s the current style!  I started pairing more gold jewelry with my outfits and find myself liking it now.  I love this simple necklace that lays close to the neck without dangling around too much.  It’s a great necklace for the office as well.

 

I hope you liked my wishlist, I tried to keep from repeating accessory types and provide about one of each kind.  Most of my preferences are minimal unless I find something that really catches my eye!  What are your favorites?
