Accessories, Accessories, Accessories

It wasn’t until recently that I started to really want to wear more accessories.  I mean, I’ve always worn earrings, because, as my mom has always told me, “they brighten your face.”  And I agree!  I’ve also always worn my “nice” jewelry that has sentimental value to me.  Like the necklace Ron gave me for Valentine’s one year, or the jewelry my parents gave me for birthdays.  Those are all my favorites and I wear those all of the time, but I’m talking about playful accessories that you buy for yourself just for looks and fun.  I’ve never been into lots of pieces at once, but recently I’ve been having a lot of fun layering necklaces and mixing in funky rings just because I can.  I went through my jewelry boxes and found all sorts of old costume pieces that I forgot I even had!!  Jackpot!  It’s such a great feeling to find an old piece of jewelry from 198? that you used to wear as a kid.  So special.  As a creative, I like to think of myself as a very visual person, so I’m sort of surprised that I didn’t notice (or really care) how a few key accessories could really pull an outfit together.  Accessories help polish a look, and if done right, can take a blah outfit to the next level.  It took me how long to realize this?!  I mean, I’ve seen other people do it and have thought, “that looks nice” but never thought more about it after that.  So, now I’m on the lookout for fun and unique pieces and I can’t wait to see what I find next! What’s your favorite accessory? ♥R

{a list of…} my current daily reads

Hey friends!  It’s time for me to share another list with you!  I really think you’ll enjoy today’s list because it is full of some lovely blogs.  Don’t believe me?  See for yourself!

These are just a few of my current daily reads (in no particular order), so grab a cup of tea, coffee, lemon water, or whatever floats your boat and stay awhile…

→ {A Beautiful Mess} I’m sure most of you are very familiar with this blog, but let me tell you why it has made this list.  I really enjoy the variety that Elsie and Emma offer.  They have everything from crafts to recipes and so much more.  This is one of my favorite blogs to read while I eats me some breakfast.  It’s a great place to find inspiration.

→ {Little Chief Honeybee} I like to stop by to see what Kaelah is up to.  She’s keeping super busy these days with work, moving into a new home and welcoming a sweet little kiddo into her life.  Never a dull moment.  I also love to see what crazy shoes she’ll wear next!

 → {Sincerley, Kinsey} This is one of my recent finds and I really enjoy Kinsey’s natural and earth-inspired style.  She always finds cute ways to pair different pieces together and her photos are just lovely!

 → {Oh So Lovely Vintage} Since I’m a vintage lover, I naturally enjoy stopping in to see what Erin + Stefanie are up to.  They keep busy with their new shop and their 1956 trailer, Olive!  It’s exciting to see where these ladies are headed.

 → {♥elycia} I enjoy Elycia’s blog because she’s so colorful and playful!  It doesn’t hurt that she loves vintage and kitty cats, too!

→ {Skunkboy Creatures} Katie makes some super sweet little plush animals that are great for all ages.  I like to stop by and see what she’s been making!

 → {Lost Artisan} This is Katie Kukuluka’s new blog.  She shares lost arts and antiques… how exciting is that?!

 → {Kyla Roma} It’s fun to stop by and see what Kyla is up to.  She lives a very busy creative life (like most of us), and she like to share!

 → {Promise Tangeman} Promise’s blog is fun to read because she shares a bit of her daily life, projects, and advice.  She is very sweet and you can feel the warmth through her writing.

 → {100 Layer Cake} I know I’m already married, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love to look at pretty wedding imagery.

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do!  Have a great day! ♥RobbieLee

{a list of…} my favorite accessories

Hi there!  Today I wanted to share with you {a list of…} my favorite accessories (inspired by my interview with Tina, over at Be Bold.Be Beautiful).  These are my must haves and go-to’s:

→ Tights – in every color, thickness and style, please!
→ Earrings – because they really brighten you face, even on those days that you aren’t feeling so great.. like now… sniff sniff.
→ Hair Clips and Bows – because they’re so cute and so fun!
→ Flip Flops – Because, even though I live in Colorado, I still wear them year around.  Yes, I do.  So easy.
→ Perfume – Because to smell pretty, is to feel pretty.
→ Bold Belts – Nothing pulls together a nice outfit like a bold and bright belt!
→ My Camera – I have to take it every where, in case something special needs to be captured.
→ Mascara – It’s a girls best friend.
→ Toms – So comfy and for a great cause!
→ Clutch – I like to carry all of my basics in a pretty clutch and keep it in my big bag.  This way if I go out on the town, there is no switching and fussing.  Simply grab your clutch and go!

What are your favorite accessories that you just can’t live without?! ♥RobbieLee
