Vintage Inspired Accessories for Spring

I don’t know about you but I am so excited to pull out my spring clothes! The weather isn’t quite warm enough yet here in D.C. for spring dresses (or North of here according to my friends and family) so I’m compensating with lots of spring-y accessories. Items like earrings, scarves and handbags are the perfect way to transition your outfit to spring without sacrificing warmth. Plus, there are so many vintage inspired items out in stores right now. I’m still completely inspired my Midge Maisel and Old Hollywood glamour right now, and am thrilled that retail stores are on board! Here are some of my favorites -

Vintage Inspired Accessories for Spring

One - Baublebar Aura “Huggie” Hoop Earrings - These earrings hug your ear lob and have a vintage inspired dangle that I love.

Two - Lisi Lerch Pearl Button Earrings - These button earrings are so classy and classic!

Three - Cat Eye Sunglasses - Classic retro sunglasses for under $40!

Four - Madewell Gingham scarf - I think the gingham pattern on this scarf looks just like something Midge would wear in the Catskills and it’s only $12.50.

Five - Kate Spade Rose Convertible Shoulder Bag - I LOVE this handbag. It has a convertible strap so it can sit at the hip or on your shoulder. It’s the perfect size - dainty but large enough for all your essentials - and I think the beige and white color palette is going to be huge this spring. Isn’t it just darling?

Six - Wicker Top Knot Headband - As you know I love top knot headbands, and I think the woven fabric of this one is perfect for spring.

Seven - Straw Boater Hat - I think a boater hat is such a classic silhouette. They go so well with spring and summer dresses and are sure to keep you cool.

Eight - Jeffrey Campbell Woven Slides - I’m so excited that this woven silhouette is now available for under $100. I love the Carrie Forbes version, but they are just so much, and these look so similar.

Nine - Enamel Flower Earrings - A larger stud earring always looks glamorous, especially with your hair pulled back, and I think the enamel is so pretty on these flowers.

Ten - Edie Woven Sandals - These sandals are comfy and reminiscent of a 1960’s day at the Club. I love the color too, it would go with all your spring and summer clothes.

Eleven - Bamboo Bracelets - How fun are these bracelets?! Don’t they look like a vintage Lilly Pulitzer piece?

Twelve - Kate Spade Rose Basket Bag - This bag has such a fun shape. It almost looks like a small basket version of Midge’s vanity case.

Have you started to dress for spring yet? What items are you excited to wear?


The Best Accessories for Summer

I've been buying some fun accessories lately to go with the clothes I already have. A good accessory is a great way to add some glam to your look, to update clothes to match the current season, and also to make basic pieces into an "outfit." This year some of the big trends are tassel earrings, H sandals and straw bags. There are so many great options, here are my favorites! 

The Best Accessories for Summer

Scarf / Invisibobble Hair Tie / Straw BagBeach Towel / Gold Earrings / Beaded Bracelet / Lipgloss / Purse / Pedicure / Flip Flops / White Sandals / H Slides / Dainty Bracelet / Oval Sunglasses / Aviators / Espadrilles / White Slides / Statement Earrings 

Scarf - I love this pretty light pink scarf to tie around my ponytail, around my handbag or around my neck.

Invisibobble Hair Tie - These hair ties are amazing because they don't dent your hair. 

Straw Bag - I love the beautiful flower pattern on this straw bag. It's the perfect size to serve as a tote or a small beach bag. 

Beach Towel - I think the yellow stripes and fringe on this towel are perfect and make for the perfect accessory at the beach or by the pool. 

Gold Earrings - Aren't these gorgeous? They are a neutral too, so they'll go with all your summer outfits. 

Beaded Bracelet - I think the blue and white beads add the perfect amount of glam and prep to any outfit. 

Lipgloss - Lipgloss is in again! 

Purse - My favorite purse style right now is a structured lady like bag, and this one is so cute. Plus, they have quad pay so you can buy it like you would like something on HSN. 

Pedicure - A perfect off white pedicure is a must to match your cute sandals. 

Flip Flops - I love the lobsters on these! Aren't they so cute, especially with the bows! 

White Sandals - You guys know I love my Jacks! 

H Slides - I have seen the expensive version of these sandals everywhere - they are Hermes and cost over $700. These Steven ones look almost exactly the same and are under $100.  

Dainty Bracelet - I think this bracelet is both dainty and cute; I love the slight amount of sparkle. 

Oval Sunglasses - This is my favorite sunglass shape right now, and white sunglasses are so big right now. Also, these oval ones are under $20.

Aviators - My favorite sunglasses of al time! They are so pretty in the rose gold color, and also timeless. 

Espadrilles - You can't go wrong with espadrille wedges in summer.  

White Slides - If you want white summer sandals but don't like Jack Rogers, I think these are really pretty and the slide shape is very in. 

Statement Earrings - Finally, some tassel statement earrings make every outfit fun and glamorous. I love this lilac color, which I'm seeing more and more, And that they mix wrap detailing with tassels.
