Favorite Things Party....Accessories

Happy Monday Girls!
 
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for "Favorite Things"...and today we are talking about our favorite accessories.  Be sure to grab the graphic and link up too!

 


Accessories are one of my FAVORITE things!  There is something about adding a cute scarf or piece of jewelry to an outfit, that can immediately just make it fabulous.  I have a few really cute scarves in my closet, but for some reason I just don't think I am a "scarf girl".  I wish I was, but every time I put one on, it just doesn't feel "right"...does that make sense?  It's funny though because I feel like a super cute scarf is the perfect accessory!
 
I think my number one favorite accessory is my handbag.  During my teenage years and early 20's, I had quite the handbag collection, and I would change out my handbags throughout the week to go with a certain outfit, etc., and well once I became a busy mom to 2, I pretty much only changed my handbag out twice a year, one for fall/winter one for spring/summer.  When I was 25 I received my first Louis Vuitton, and well since then I have not carried anything else.  Now before I get bombarded with ridiculous, mean comments about what a huge waste of money that is, etc....I no longer have a closet full of handbags, I have 3, yes that's it....3......I have the first LV, it's a speedy 30, and I carried it for 9 years....I carried the same exact handbag, never switched out for NINE years.  When I was 34 I got another speedy 30 in the white pattern, thinking I would just change it out and use it during the spring/summer months.  Well....I carried that bag daily for 4 years.  3 years ago for an anniversary gift, I received the LV Neverful Bag....and I love it...and have carried it every single day since the day I got it.  It's the absolute BEST "mom" bag...it seriously never gets full.  I know these bags are a bit pricey, and some think it is super foolish to spend this on a purse, but hey we all have our "thing" and I guess this is mine. 
 
I have been carrying this bag for 3 years, I feel like I have already gotten my moneys worth.  I just wish when I got mine it came with the cute little zippy pouch...BONUS!
 
Another favorite accessory for me is a great pair of sunglasses.  I don't have but two pair...and my favorite go to every time are my Ray Ban Aviators, I just love them.  I have this exact pair and right now they are on sale! 
These are great glasses!
 
Another favorite accessory of mine...a great pair of earrings.  I have talked before about my love of Kate Spade earrings, they are the perfect earring to put on for a great little pop of color.  They are super cute and comfortable.  I have been wearing them probably 5 days a week since I got my first pair last summer.  I am also loving the BP Stone Stud Earring , they are almost identical to the Kate Spade studs and they are only $8!  These would make a perfect Mother's Day Gift!
 
Here are just a few pair that I have...I may need an intervention:)
 
So those are my top 3 favorite accessories.  Can't wait to read about what everyone else is loving!
 
Happy Monday!

  1. I totally understand. I don't have that handbag gene but some girls do!! 9 years with one bag is a long time! You definitely got your money's worth!

  5. I have always been a shoe and handbag girl too. My husband's first gift to me when we were saying was a Burberry purse that I still have and love and wear a fall/winter long. And we just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary! No one can tell me a bag that has lasted 12 years was a bad investment! Meanwhile I've had purses from a target not last 4 months. You're not alone with your purse love!

  8. The LV Neverfull is on my wishlist. I might die if my hubby buys it though because it's pricey. I want it though so I can justify it. Plus, I'd be like you and carry it for years!

    1. The LV Neverfull is such a great bag..definitely pricey, but if you'll carry it daily for a few years, its totally worth the money! Hope you get one soon:) Have a great day Kelli

    3. I have the medium size one and it's perfect for me! I thought the small was very small, and the large was a little too big for me! The medium is the perfect size for me to carry around all I need! Hope you have a great day!
