My Favorite Fall Accessories

As you may have noticed (or not, whatever), I am big into accessories lately. I have a ton of headbands that I love to wear recently, a ton of new pairs of earrings and just got a few new bags in too! Today, I figured I would share some of my new accessories I’ve been wearing a loving lately with you. They are a mix of trendy pieces and classic pieces so I think there is something for everyone here.

Pearl Detail Headbands

These are truly everywhere this year and I am so so into this trend. I love the knotted headband style but I also really love the ones that are covered top to bottom with little pearls. They are so pretty and perfect for brides who have engagement parties and showers to attend! I found these pretty pearl headbands on Amazon and they came in a big 6 pack which was so convenient because I got a ton of colors for the price of one or two at a regular store. The ones I ordered are linked here from Amazon! I also got the prettiest ones from Baublebar, one is completely covered in pearls and it’s just stunning. While the other has a pretty satin band with a thick string of pearls along the middle and is available as a 2 for $20 deal! These pretties are linked here for the full pearl and the one I have for the one string of pearls is sold out but here is a similar one.

Padded Headbands

Okay this trend is honestly a love it or hate it situation, but I genuinely love it. I think it’s such a cute way to elevate your look, without doing too much. Danielle Bernstein of @weworewhat is the QUEEN of padded headbands and she is definitely my inspiration when I choose to style these. I got mine from Amazon and I just can’t get enough of them. Of course, the black and brown are my favorites, but I am excited to try some of the other colors too, like the navy and the green! The link to these headbands are here. Lastly, to keep things really interesting, I also got THE CUTEST Sherpa headband and was so excited! It seems crazy but it’s much more subtle than it seems. Here’s the link for the Sherpa Headband from Baublebar!

Designer Inspired Headbands

I am a huge fan of designer pieces and logos, but I can’t always justify the designer price tag when it comes to something like a headband. I found these really cute Gucci inspired headbands on Amazon and just about fell over when I saw them! They are so cute and pretty well made, considering they are from Amazon. I really like how they can elevate your look and make it look more high end, but without the huge price tag. The Gucci inspired ones are linked here. I’m on the hunt to find a few others that are inspired by other designers as well!

Gold Hoops with a Twist

I am a massive fan of gold hoop earrings because they are so classic, but I also love finding pairs that are a little bit more interesting than a plain gold hoop! I really love shopping for earrings on Baublebar so that is usually where I find mine because they always have such interesting styles. I found these beaded gold hoops and couldn’t decide for a while if I REALLY needed them but I decided to take the plunge and I am so happy I did! Warning: these are pretty heavy so I wouldn’t recommend them for a full day of wear! I also found these really cute, thin gold hoops that look as if the metal was hammered down which I think is such a nice detail and they are super lightweight and comfortable. The beaded hoops are linked here and the hammered metal hoops are linked here.

Pearl Hoop Earrings

These are definitely some favorites of mine recently. I think pearl earring are so classic and elegant, but having them as a hoop can really take the look to the next level. It’s a modern take on a classic staple. I found a pair at Baublebar which are inspired by the Lele Sadoughi earrings that cost a whopping $150! This pair at Baublebar is a mere $42 and from what I would assume, a bit lighter and smaller than the Lele Sadoughi pair. I also found these beaded pearl mini earrings, which are super lightweight and just so stinkin’ cute! They are similar to the gold beaded ones I linked above, but much more wearable for day to day. The big pearl hoops are linked here and the mini beaded pearl hoops are linked here, the white is sold out but they come in a cool Tahitian pearl version.

Designer Dupe Bags

When it comes to bags, I actually am not as fond of designer dupes as I am with other accessories. Bags are such iconic pieces, so I feel that it can take away from the exclusiveness of them when there are similar-but-not-exact versions of them. However, I found this bag, originally posted by Sarah Belle Elizabeth @sarahbelleelizabeth on Instagram and I was really excited to get it. This one is a dupe for the Bottega Veneta Pouch bag that is crazy popular with all the bloggers and influencers, even with its $3,000+ price tag. This dupe is a mere $32 from Amazon, linked here, and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by the quality. The faux leather is really nice and supple, and the color looks beautiful in person. With that being said, it looks crazy similar and I am really happy that she found this! It’s such a cute bag that I can easily see being in style for a very long time.

Spring Accessories

Today I wanted to share where I like to get some of my spring accessories because I have maybe been going overboard with buying them so might as well put them to use. I mainly wear earrings and bags so I’m sharing those and a few that I have in my shopping cart!

To start, here are some of the earrings that I bought and love and can’t wait to wear in the spring and summer months! I get majority of my earrings from Baublebar because they just have the best and most interesting statement earrings!

Baublebar came out with a collection that is various animals/sea creatures so those are definitely all sitting in my shopping cart. The Cayman Drop Earrings are my absolute favorites but I also love the Flamingos and the Rainbow fish, all linked below!

Last summer, I was very into the wooden Arc bags that were popular as well as straw bags so I’m bringing them back for this year too. I got some of my favorites from Steve Madden, Goodnight Macaroon and Revolve.

This year, I’m into the beaded bags and mini bags in general! I also maybe like belt bags? I’m sort of late but honestly I like the functionality. Here’s a few that are sitting in my shopping cart!

A few other things that I have been really loving lately are Quay Australia sunglasses. Below are some of my favorites from last year. I wear the pink “Playa” (featured top right) style just about every day.

Favorite Fall/Winter Accessories

In the fall and winter, your accessories really help to make your outfit look less frumpy and more ~fashion~. It can be tough to look cute in the winter while also trying to keep warm. So, I rounded up some of my favorite kinds of fall accessories to make your fall and winter outfit styling easier.

Scarves

I like all kinds of scarves, but personally I love a good blanket scarf. The bigger the better! I love all the colors and prints and patterns because you can really make it match your outfit no matter what. Because it’s part of your outerwear, it’s okay to wear your yellow scarf with your red sweater and your pink coat. That’s the best part! I love the scarves from Urban Outfitters and Zara.

Knit Hats

I love those chunky knit hats! They are so good for keeping your head toasty and hiding your bad hair day. Bonus points if it has a fuzzy ball on top too! If you’re not a hat person, a good alternative is a cute knit headband. I usually get mine from Target.

Gold Jewelry

I think gold jewelry is so pretty in the fall. It matches the changing leaves and the pumpkins perfectly. I love all kinds of gold jewelry, but recently I really love dainty gold jewelry like thin chain necklaces or tiny stud earrings. I also LOVE a very thin gold hoop!  I get most of my jewelry from Francesca’s, Target and Baublebar.

Oversize Clutches/Pouches

These babies are absolutely everywhere this fall and I am HERE FOR IT. It’s not quite the same as the mini bag trend that’s been around since the spring and summer, but it’s a similar concept. No one wants to carry a giant heavy bag around all day and I think this is a great alternative. They’re usually bigger than mini bags so you can fit all your necessities but you don’t have to weigh down your shoulders either! The only issue is you may not always have a free hand with these. Still cute, though!

Chunky Knit Socks

We all know there’s  nothing cozier than cuddling up on the couch with a pair of fuzzy socks and your jammies on. The best part about winter is that it’s also acceptable to wear your fuzzy knit socks out of the house! You have to keep your toes warm somehow! Pairing a nice thick chunky pair of socks with cute ankle boots is super trendy with jeans and even skirts if you’re daring enough to wear a skirt in the winter. Target has the BEST chunky knit socks, but I also love the ones from Aerie.
