I love Spring, I love it, I love it. There has been months of darkness and ok it’s still baltic out there but at least there is daylight. At this line of latitude that really is a luxury.
The other day the sun was shinning and I found myself sitting on my balcony (in a giant coat) sipping tea and perusing Spring accessories. Why not fashion trends? Well accessories are a cheap and cheerful way to update your wardrobe. Monsson Accessorize is my mecca, you’ll have to drag me out. I should point out that this is not a sponsored post I just love it!
Ever the list addict here is my shopping list:
Accessorize Fanella Flamingo Stole €24.90 / £17
I am a scarf feind. If it’s pretty, I want it. Do I need 60? Probably not but a pretty scarf really can put a bit of life into your face and lift your mood. This one has my name all over it. Pink, soft and flamingos. Nuff said.
Accessorize Pebble Statement Necklace €34.90 / £25
Oh and a pretty bag to match…
Accessorize Brixton Double Pocket Satchel €34.90 / £25
I love spending money on fashion jewellery. I’m not big on expensive jewellery, I don’t put much value on it. I love little trinkets people have bought me over the years because I’m sentimental but other than that I enjoy blowing a few bob on pretty necklaces and earrings that I wear for a few months and then move on. This is one such item. It looks like there is alot going on but I like to.
Accessorize Cutwork Medium Teardrop Earring €13.90 / £10
I have a love/hate relationship with earrings. I love looking at them, I always notice them on others but I tend to be very safe when it comes to my own ears. The reason for this is three-fold. (1) I have a long face so I’m always concerned long earrings will make it look longer and (2) I’m short and feel that larger earrings make me look closer to the ground, I know, ridiculous! (3) I’m afraid of looking like my Nana Sue. But I think these fears are illogical and I just need to get used to wearing more statement pieces.
Accessorize Luisa Revo Lens Preppy Sunglasses €14.90 / £12
I think it’s safe to say I have Spring fever. Ah well, I’m in need of a little retail therapy and accessory haulage is much cheaper that running out for new shoes, bag and coat!
Have you gone Spring shopping yet?
Hope everyone has a happy Monday!
