I love incorporating YouTube tags here on my blog and I discovered this one while watching one of my fav YouTubers, BeautyCrush. Here are my 5 key accessories for Spring.
1. Duffle Handbag
This is by far the most used handbag in my collection. It was also featured in my first Fashion Forward Friday series, “What’s In My Bag.” I absolutely love this bag and I can throw anything and everything in it. I love the slouchy look of it, the long strap and shorter shoulder straps and I love using the front zipper to store my keys, phone, and mini vaseline. The inside of the bag is endless and I will say that without smaller bags it can become a complete mess. The color goes great with any outfit I pair it with. I purchased this bag from Old Navy over a year ago and the material/style is similar to the Women’s Zip-Pocket Tote & the Women’s Zip-Flap Crossbodies currently available online.
2. Clutch/Evening Bag
I talked about this bag in my “V-Day Outfits (Day & Night)” post in another installment of Fashion Forward Friday. I cannot afford a Chanel so this is the next best thing. I love that this bag can be worn there ways: clutch, shoulder, and cross-body. The chain strap is what really sold me on this bag.I purchased it from Aldo for under $40 which was a great buy for this bag. The bag is called the “Pilloud-98”. When I’m not carrying my everyday bag this is the bag that I go to for a night out.
3. Jean Jacket
It took me forever to hunt down a jean jacket in my size and I was lucky enough to score one in Forever 21 for under $30. I now have 5 jean jackets in my wardrobe, but this one I wear more than the others. I love my jean jackets whether they are cropped, synched at the waist, or basic such as this. I would love a light wash denim vest for summer. Still on the hunt for that. I love to pair this jacket with leggings/ printed jeggings and it would be great to style with a pair of joggers.
4. Chunky Necklace
I have so many statement pieces in my collection. Stay tuned for an accessory collection/storage post within the next week. My best friend gifted me this Juicy Couture necklace and I love to pair it with any and everything I can. The pop of pink works with a lot of outfits more than I thought it would. I love to pair this with a basic tea, a printed skirt/pant and a pair of flats.
5. Hoop Earrings
This is the easiest thing that I throw on. A lot of people may go for studs, but I love my hoops. These are new from Wet Seal and so glad to have 3 new pairs since I’ve misplaced mine other 2 pairs of silver ones form H&M & Forever 21. It’s so effortless to throw these on and majority of the time it’s the only jewelry I wear.
