Markdown Mondays: 5 Accessories to Help You Beat The Winter Blues
Happy Monday! The weather in NYC this past week has really see-sawed, from 60 degree sun, to rain, sleet and snow, making me pull out just about every range of outfits from my wardrobe. What it has clearly shown though (along with the groundhog prediction) is no matter how you twist it, we still have a bit of Winter left to endure. So, instead of fighting it, I thought I’d come up with a list of 5 fun accessories you can add to your wardrobe that will help you cure your “Winter Blues”, and get you ready for Spring!
Check out today’s #MarkdownMondays collage with these colorful wardrobe additions. They won’t break the bank, but can make or break the outfit 🙂
First, I chose this beautiful pair of Aquazzura Belgravia Suede Wedge Sandals from Saks Off 5th in a stunning “Mondrian Blue” shade. There are still a lot of sizes available, but they’re selling out fast at this incredible price – so hurry up and get yours! Save 20% off with code “SOGOOD” for an up to 70% off savings (the sandals went from $595 to $207.19!)
To complement these cheerful shoes, I chose this Signet Bag in Colorblock Italian Calf Hair from J.Crew. It’s a very fun (and rather neutral) addition to your wardrobe which can easily transition from Winter to Spring and Summer, and has an adjustable 24″ strap, making it perfect for travel to wear-cross body or to have on you when you go out (hands-free Insta selfies, anyone? 😉 )
This pair of Chrissy’s Socks will be a welcome addition to your Winter wardrobe (who doesn’t love watermelon, which is pretty much synonymous with Summer, right?), and they’re only $9.99. You can wear them with your booties or under your jeans for just a subtle peak, and these are bound to stay in your closet through the Summer for sure, as they’re perfect to wear with Mary Janes or flats for a funky-urban-feel in warmer weather. I’m so glad Chrissy’s Socks sent me a couple of pairs of these gems to try out, they really brighten up my day every time I wear them!
A time-piece is literally a time-less accessory, and this Blue Floral Print Watch from Anthropologie is incredible. It’s hand-painted by Artisan Watchmakers at Shmutz Watches, and features Azure flora blooming atop a neutral band. Wear it with stacked elastic bracelets or solo – it pairs perfectly with a cuffed sweater or chambray shirt, or blouse for a variety of casual and dressy looks.
Last but not least, a pretty pair of earrings can immediately add a pop to any outfit, and lift your mood instantly. These Tory Burch Stone Cascade Earrings in multi-colored Swarovski Crystals and Hematite are classy, elegant and unique; wear them with a sheath dress for an upscale look or skinny jeans and turtleneck for a brunch date with your girls.
