Hey guys! It’s been a while and I wanted to pop back in with a fun new post! Accessories are my number one favorite thing to shop for because they add personality to any outfit! I personally have a ton of sunglasses and earrings but I love getting inspiration from celebs and their go to accessories. Like me, they love their sunglasses and Ray Bans (Ray Ban Cats are my favorite) are a classic staple that just about every celeb out there wears. Along with sunglasses, light weight scarves, a oversized watch and a great pair of earrings are among the most worn accessories. Scroll through slide show below to see the stylish
Lets start with the most used year round accessory: sunglasses! A classic pair of
Scarfs are among the list as well and for good reason! They have the ability to add a stylish cozy touch and the fact that they’re avaibale in light weight fabrics make them perfect to tote around in your bag all year round! Zooey Descahnel is the perfect example of how to make the moost of sunglasses and a scarf. Cute coat, sleek boots are a must during the colder months but her accessories give the look a effortless stylish push.
Who doesn’t love a pair of pretty earrings!? They’re the most versatile accessory and they can be worn with any outfit!
Give your outfit a masculine touch with a oversized watch! I don’t think anyone wears it better than the Olsen twins who always wear a oversized gold watch.
A quick grab and go bag is a oversized clutch (this

I’m absolutely LOVING Kim Kardashian’s toned down make over! The one look that really caught my eye was her sold out Pink Celine coat and head to white outfit. It’s sleek, sltylish and classy! Great new look for the new mom. 🙂 Get her look for less with pieces from Top Shop, Lulu’s & more!
I’ve always been an avid thrift store shopper and nothing is more exciting than finding something you love on the cheap. Just the other day my son asked me to take him thrifting and I was SO excited not only because he showed an interest in one of my passions, but also because we were going on a day that offered 50 percent off clothes. While my son was looking to find what he called “Cosby” type sweaters I hit the women’s clothing section and found a spotted faux fur coat for $16 but I got it $8! I expected the coat to need some type of tailoring but it fit perfectly and it’s in amazing condition! I won’t be wearing it too often here in Florida but I now have a super cute coat for my frequent NY visits.
What I’m Wearing:
Vintage Faux Fur Coat – $8 from Local Thrift Store
Mint Green Dress – $7.50 from T.J. Maxx
Betsey Johnson Sunglasses $20 from T.J. MAxx
Bracelets from Forever 21
One of those celebrities who always manages to wear the latest hot thing in fashion is definitely Rihanna. A few days ago she was spotted on a cold, winter night approaching her hotel in New York, wearing this pair of pentagon shaped Miu Miu sunglasses. Since she wore them in summer, the sunglasses have only grown more popular. Just a few weeks ago Australian beauty Miranda Kerr was seen adorning these stylish sunglasses in Manhattan. The Miu Miu MU53NS pair can be recognized by the gold rim.
In the past Rihanna was frequently seen wearing Ray Ban sunglasses, so it’s surprising – yet refreshing – to see her change it up. It’s definitely the kind of chic pair you can wear at any occasion, whether it’s with summer or winter favorites.
It’s no surprise the Miu Miu collection is quite fashionable, knowing its part of the Prada label. The brand’s name is actually the nickname of fashion designer Miuccia Prada, who’s acclaimed for creating high fashion accessories.
This Kim Kardashian look for less is an oldie but goodie! Since I spend most of my days working from home, I’m a big fan of quick ways to spruce up bottoms and tee’s in case I need to run out. By pairing with a classic black blazer, cute sandals and some of my favorite accessories like a boyfriend watch and aviator sunglasses, you’re good to go in a matter of minutes!

AnnaLynne McCord looks cute but should have paid heed to Coco Chanel’s sage advice, “When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on.” In this case it’s double trouble. Her outfit would have been fine without the scarf and necklace because the tie neck blouse was enough. She would of been better served by adding some earrings or bangles. So I basically redid the outfit without the unnecessary accessories and added some skinny jeans (below) for those of you who want to downplay the outfit a bit. Hope you like it!
Drew Barrymore: one of my faves when it comes to the chic boho look. Getting the right mix is a tricky art (even the fabulous Drew walks the razor edge at times with the chic part) but she nailed it this with the khaki/military shirt, skinny jeans, trendy yet classic striped t-shirt and grey platform pumps. Get Drew’s look for less with pieces from, Urban Outfitters, Piperlime, Charlotte Russe and more!
