It’s the Easter holidays for me this week, so a little shopping had to be done. As well as some Spring wardrobe additions (saving for another post), I got myself a few extra treats to accessorise my Spring outfits. As you can see from my jewellery stands in my Mirror Mirror… post, I am already drowning in an abundance of trinkets, but this is a collection I have been building over many years, so a little more won’t hurt… right?
My first stop was Forever 21, a site that I have to admit, I had not ventured onto before now. Ooo so may pretty things! I think I ended up with a basket full to the brim that I then had to sadly slim down dramatically. So here they are, the chosen few:
I have a similar pair to this in studs, which I wore so often last Summer.
I thought these would look great with a maxi dress or a simple black top and trousers.
I can’t quite seem to get into the pointy stud trend. Maybe it’s my age but it just seems a little scary to me and I don’t think I would pull it off.
I do however like these little pyramids that I think will go with any of my simple or colourful outfits.
I just can’t get enough of the Spring pastel trend.
Mint green and Coral are ultimate faves, and I couldn’t resist these cute little knots to pair up with my dresses this season.
I don’t actually own many statement necklaces, so thought it was about time I did.
This necklace seemed perfect for the job as the colour would go with anything and the elegant shape suits my body shape.
A while back when I started my blog, I added a cute necklace to my wish list from a small company called Buttonsy. I love the ideas of buying bits that nor many people will have and this is the perfect site for that. They make the most adorable accessories, and at last I decided I had to have a few of their pieces. I chose the following, and will be visiting them again shortly I’m sure:
Woodland animals seem to be popular at the moment.
I love this badger with his fabric like ears.
I have seen this style of bird all over the Etsy shops.
These are too sweet for words.
Finally, I made my way into a store called Outfit. I hadn’t seen it until it appeared in my local retail park. The shop stocks a variety of brands including many of my favourites: Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and many more. I tried this necklace on with a dress I was buying but then left it in the dressing room and forgot about it. I then did a loop of Boots (as you do), and decided that I had to go back and get it.
I like the how chunky this is without being too over the top.
It stands out against the black which I think will work well if I group it with some other necklaces to create a statement piece.
So there you go! I think I need to go and have a lie down now. I mustn’t pick up the iPad and browse any more shops. Not for a few days anyway 😉
Happy Blogging All, xxx
