Happy Monday lovelies....
I hope each of you had a great weekend. Mine wasn't too bad at all; I spent some time with my friends, began my summer classes, and best of all I went shopping-this time for accessories.
I think that great accessories can take an outfit over the top if you style them correctly. Here are three things that I like to keep in mind when I'm shopping for accessories.
TIP #1-Go bold. Bold colored accessories accentuate classic and neutral outfits. Since I can't be overly bold when dressing for work and church, I incorporate bold colored accessories to give my 'fits a burst of energy.
TIP # 2-The more color, the better. I always like to choose accessories that include a variety of colors so that they can easily be paired and remixed with several different outfits.
TIP #3-Spend wisely. Lots of times I have purchased accessories from places such as Forever 21 and H&M only to have them break or tarnish. From that I have learned to spend less on accessories by either shopping the clearance racks and/or second hand stores. For those items that I just have to have, like this 80's chain necklace and spiked bracelet, I don't mind spending the money.
Here's what I snagged over the weekend:
I love this multi-colored statement necklace. Although the colors are bold, they still fall into the neutral category and can be paired with an endless amount of 'fits.
This jewel-toned cuff bracelet is also one of my faves because the variety of colors allow it to go with just about anything.
I picked these earrings because I loved the shape and print of them. They are also very lightweight.
There was no method to justify why I picked these fringed beauties. I guess the main reason was because they were only $2 and I don't own any purple accessories.
There you have it...my accessory filled weekend-all for less that $20! I can't wait to style these goodies.
What are some tips that you keep in mind when shopping for accessories?
