Accessories 101— Because Every Girl Needs A Few Staples

The Skinny Confidential talks accessories and fashion.

I’m a total accessory girl.

BUT.

A total picky, picky accessory girl.

So when I find something I like, I really freaking like it.

ESP if it’s comfortable.

Of course it also has to be effortlessly chic, understated, cool, amazing, versatile, & not too in your face too.

Anyway my ultimate fav accessory right now is a delicate gold arm band ( see above pic )…but if I had to pick my other must-haves?

Ta-da:

Sweet Besitos Headbands: Sweet Besitos Headbands are super fun to wear to the gym or while running errands. They have super rad patterns & are a take on a cool fitness headband. I’ve been rocking mine to spin ( I ESP like it around my head like a festival partier ( LOL ) ). Headbands always make any boring workout outfit chic & stylish. Love!

2.} Koolaburra sandals: Ahhhhh!! Koolaburra shoes are the.best.accessory. They’re literally the best shoes ever. All their flip flops are worn by major celebrities & best part? They’re actually comfy. I wear these slip-ons all the time ( think: with a black maxi, skinny jeans, &/or a little summer skirt…cute, right?! ). These are neutral so they pretty much go with anything. Anyway next time you’re looking for some hottie shoes, check Koolaburras out!

3.} Child of Wild bag: It’s no secret I love Child of Wild. & her bags just get me. First off, they’re perfect for someone who’s perpetually running late— I throw all my shit in this bag & throw it on. I love wearing it as a cross-body & it’s understated. This Navajo purse is probably one of my favorite accessories because it’s easy…who doesn’t love easy? Check more bags out here.

4.} Flower Gypsies Crowns: ok, so I found Flower Gypsies Crowns on Instagram & I feel madly in love. They’re so whimsical & magical & seriously look insane on. I’m in love with this one in particular. I feel like I want to throw a garden party just to wear this crown. I mean…cute right? This crown is such a statement & would be perfect for any summer party.

5.} FRENDS Headphones: you guys know I’m a huge, huge fan of FRENDS headphones. Yesssssss. I know they’re an investment. BUT. This is an investment you’ll use daily AND I feel like I will wear them forever. Plus they’re so cute—- people are constantly asking me where they’re from. When it comes to accessories, FRENDS are a must have.

6.} I’m With The Band Headbands: these lil velvet headbands make another amazing accessory— & the name? I’m With The Band. Die!! This badass company really does it right because it holds my rat’s nest hair back in a stylish and cool way. Because I totally don’t want to be a dork in Pilates with a weird, ugly headband…thx God for I’m With The Band’s velvet turbans. Yay!

7.} Tavi Noir Knee High Sock: if want to look hot while sweating ( think barre classes, Pilates, &/or yoga ) these socks by Tavi Noir will be your bestie. Not only are they great for workouts but they’re literally amaze for transitioning to the gym to date night. I like to wear the lace ones with some black knee high boots & a little off the shoulder top. Hot! Check out more of these rad socks here & enter TSC10 for a 25% off all socks.
