Accessory Time

Good morning, friends! The kids are asleep after what was a very hectic weekend and truth be told, I wish I could be also. But since I'm a growm-up (as my two year old says), I'm up and ready to start a very hectic week.

Linking up today with Erika and Andrea for their monthly favourite things party about accessories. I love a good accessory. It's my favourite way to spruce up an outfit and make myself feel instantly more put together. When I was in the corporate world, chunky and statement pieces would be my way to really dress up but now, I tend to go on the smaller side--- at least for everyday life. Here are just a few of my faves.

(PS. these are so popular in the blogging world, I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of you have one or two as well)

My initial Kate Spade necklace is one of my everyday pieces. I use it by itself or with other longer necklaces. And on sale today too!

My Rayne necklace is one of my faves and I wish I could have it in another colour too but simply can't justify the purchase. I chose this colour as I wanted an all season sort of wear. 
On sale at Kendra Scott today (15% off and free shipping) using the code MOTHERSDAYPTMT thanks to one of my favourite blogs PTMT

When I want something lighter for everyday use, my Stella and Dot  trinity necklace is another way to go. I use my initial necklace sometimes with it as well sometimes although this comes with it's own delicate smaller chain.

Cloth infinity scarfs all through the year for the patterns and the lightness but the warmth.

These BP earrings come in a multitude of colours at a fraction of the KS stud prices. 

(BP has a ton of great, cheaper, trendy stuff)

And finally, as I lose sunglasses like it's my job, the cheaper the better so these BP ones are on the list for sure.

And just because, these are my favourite tips for accessorizing:

+ wait for sales, I almost never buy full priced

+ Not too matchy matchy, earrings, necklace and bracelets don't have to be the exact same type of stone, metal or type. I don't even match two of the same usually but make sure they 'go' together.

+ Kind of confusing but not too unmatched either- prints, colours etc.

+ Love stacks and layering jewelry but they need to be done properly!

+ In the words of the lovely Coco Chanel, take one thing away. I very rarely do a huge necklace AND earrings or necklace AND bracelet. 

Happy Monday! Now back to bed…. haha, if only!!!
