Accessories 101— Because Every Girl Needs A Few Staples

Accessories 101 by The Skinny Confidential

I’m a total accessory girl.


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?

The Skinny Confidential talks accessories and fashion.

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 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.

  1. Oooo that Child of Wild site is such a good find! The bags are cool but I’m especially digging the pillows. One of those bad boys on a rustic leather couch…

  2. I am a total accessories junkie as well, whenever I feel like I need an update in my closet I go out and buy myself some cute new accessories and feel like I have an entirely new wardrobe! Thanks for sharing all of your cute finds <3 Lots of Love C

  3. That’s a really nice round up of accessories and loads I wouldn’t really have thought of. The gold arm band is absolutely beautiful xxx

  4. I’ve been seeing those awesome headphones everywhere. I’m guessing sound quality matches cuteness? – a clean eating bento blog. Japanese or Asian-inspired!

  5. I love these accessories! I’ve been wanting to try out some headbands like the Sweet Besitos ones but I didn’t really know how to pull it off — seeing how you style it is super helpful! Totally getting inspired for summer now with these accessory ideas!

  6. I neeeed to get more accessories! I love the way they pull together outfits, and make you look so ‘done’. However I am absolutely rubbish at them, and always just forget!
    Thanks for some timely inspiration! x

  7. Awe. This post just reminded me of all the super cute bags, jewels and hair accessories I have at my finger tips but I’m just to f’in lazy to utilize.
