Camel cashmere sweater and gingham shirt

Accessories make such a huge difference when it comes to looking put together.  Without the right handbag, jewelry or sunglasses, an outfit just isn’t complete.  Before I started blogging, I wasn’t really into accessorizing.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, I simply didn’t know how.  I had a few handbags and a few pieces of jewelry here and there but never understood how important they really are!

I prefer to keep my outfits simple and classic.  One of my favorite accessories to wear is a faux pearl necklace and a nice watch.  This outfit wouldn’t have the same look and feel without these key pieces.  Here are some of my favorite accessories:

Now let’s talk about handbags!  It’s crazy what a difference a purse makes.  The outfit with my camel bag is more work appropriate and professional where the outfit with the burgundy crossbody/clutch is great for dinner and the weekends. This Vince Camuto Abril shoulder bag recently sold out however I found THIS ONE that is similar and looks amazing!

I love designer purses however there’s something about carrying an affordable one that you don’t have to constantly worry about.  Especially when I’m constantly on the go, sometimes I need something that can hold all my essentials and stuff for Milan.  I love these Street Level handbags so much!  They look much more expensive than they are and most of them are under $50.

Nordstrom is THE place to buy accessories.  They have everything!  I rarely shop in store anymore because it’s so much easier ordering online.  Gosh, I love online shopping (lol).  There’s just something so right about ordering stuff in your jammies sprawled out on the couch.  Am I right?
