One of my favorite topics… accessories!! Whenever I have shopping money, my first instinct is to head to my favorite brands and see what new shoes, bags, and jewelry they have out. They always trump clothes for me, for whatever reason! I think because you really can make or break an outfit with the accessories… good quality, statement accessories can make even H&M look luxe!
That said, I’m very picky about my accessories, and am going to start putting together lists of my favorite accessories for each season to help you guys navigate finding the best pieces that you’ll get a lot of wear out of and feel bomb wearing!
Hope you enjoy!
Salvatore Ferragamo #Gancini Sandals
I liked the whole logomania movement when it came out, but it wasn’t till I started trying it on and wearing it that I truly became obsessed. I like to wear more basics/neutrals clothing-wise and love how these and my other favorite logo pieces serve as a beautiful statement piece. They stand out, add character, yet are still classy & sophisticated. I also love how tastefully the gold hardware is done on Ferragamo’s pieces, and the fact that they’re a heel, but a lower block heel so very comfortable. They also have a sexy ankle strap, making them a lovely choice for pants or dresses.
Continuing on with the logomania… I didn’t buy this super recently, but it’s something I’ve been loving and reaching for more and more! The brown works so well with white, camel, and denim, colors I tend to wear a lot during the summer. It’s also small, so it works well with looks you want to keep light and fresh! The best part is, you can score one for a great price on pre-owned websites since it’s a classic LV style that’s been around for a while. That’s where I got mine, and knowing I scored it at a great price while also giving love to something someone else didn’t want makes me enjoy it even more! I never feel bad buying pre-owned luxury since it’s one of the most sustainable ways to shop!
I’ve gotten into silver more this year, but I find myself reaching for it more and more when I have some color to my skin. Just like white, a beautiful bright silver pairs so well with a tan! I’ve had and loved some arm candy from Lagos since December, which I know I’ll wear so much all summer long, but I recently added this gorgeous ring from Kate Lagos’ collection and am so obsessed! It’s edgy, sophisticated, and helps tie in my gold & silver pieces.
I hopped on the espadrille train last summer and will never go back. They are the cutest and comfiest summer shoes I’ve ever owned! Seeing as I wore my Chanel espadrilles SO much last summer, I knew investing in another pair would be money well spent. My Chanel’s still look amazing and feel great, but now I have these gorgeous Saint Laurent espadrilles to go with more warmer-toned outfits and I couldn’t love them more!
This was an accidental find, but I love them so much! They’re so unique, delicate, and a great way to integrate a little black, white, or color into my arm stack. I also love that they’re adjustable since I have super small wrists! The price point is also fantastic!
It was love at first sight when I saw these gorgeous sandals, which just so happen to be under $100. I’m still on the hunt for a bag with tortoiseshell to match with these and my tortoiseshell sunglasses, and can’t wait to wear all three together! Tortiseshell is one of my favorite prints for summer, as it’s a neutral but more statement, so I’m always game for adding more tortoiseshell pieces to my wardrobe! These are a super cute and affordable way to do that!
These glasses scream 1970s Hollywood glam… they are just SO good! I wasn’t even looking for sunglasses when I tried them on, but as soon as I did, I knew I needed them! They work great with casual and dressy looks, are comfortable and lightweight, and so gorgeous for summer! I know I’ll be living in these!
A recent brand discovery, I love how cute and unique their jewelry is! I also love that some of their pieces have a Christian meaning behind them, since my faith is an important part of my life. They’re inexpensive, charming, and the different chain options make layering with them super cute and fun!
