The little accessories

Over the holiday break I spent a few weeks in Southern California with my family, where along with my mom and sister who have figure out so many great shopping places, I was in shopping heaven after being so uninspired for so long. I’ll take you along with my accessory journey in this post.

I have never been one to be too big on accessories. For many years I wore the exact same necklace and earrings every single day! I was a creature of habit. But I’ve been craving many changes (some of which I will touch upon in an upcoming post). So I figured I need to start branching out somewhere!

This pretty hairclip from Marc by Marc Jacobs has so many cute details I like – from the dots, the color, AND the bow? Can I wear this in my hair every day now?

This will be hard to believe but this is my first really jeweled, on trend, necklace I have ever owned. All others I have are so simple! So I kind of like how much this one stands out from the others.

These were the earrings I got at the Renegade Craft Fair. Not heavy at all, I like the subtle color of the brass. PERFECT for me.

So now that school is over, I have time to do things I used to love doing. I went to the craft store and picked up a whole bunch of yarn. I turned this ball of wool into  a pretty little hat. Although I want to make another pom pom that’s much bigger.

And I guess as a Christmas present for myself, I couldn’t pass on this fantastic deal on this Botkier purse. I was looking for a new purse and this one caught my eye because of the extra strap and rich earthy color.

Now, to figure out a better way to organize my accessories!
