We all know that accessories can totally update a look.
They can elevate it and even simplify it.

White jeans Polo Ralph Lauren - Black tank top Da Moda - Eileen Fisher cinnamon rust cardigan -
Black wedges Aerosoles - Roberto Cavalli black bag - Black Prada Baroque sunglasses

For a long time accessories were not a part of my outfits.
For some reason I only wore either gold or silver items, usually small.
Somewhere along the road I discovered that 
I love accessories, and now I have a few drawers full of them. 
However I still keep it minimal.

Now, whenever I travel -either work or vacation - I am always on the lookout for accessories.
They can be belts, bracelets, necklaces, rings...
They don't take much space in my bags and usually remind me of where I have been.

For example, today I wore a black and white striped fabric necklace which I picked up in Peru during a business trip. Paired it with a black beaded ring I picked in an airport  (Costa Rica ?) while waiting for a flight.

They make a better souvenir than a printed t shirt.
I usually look for rings first and then necklaces.
Do you have any favorite accessories ?

Far too many to name, hahaha. and I usually pick them up along my travels as well - but nothing cliched. Like in the Bahamas I wouldn't touch anything with a cowrie shell with a 10 foot pole. Same with Murano glass in Venice.

I need to become more daring with accessories, although I do tend to buy local jewelry as souveniers on my travels.

LOVE that necklace! And the yellow toenails, so fun. Oh, I love accessories... especially a scarf or a bright necklace. My favorite is probably a long silver pearl (fake) necklace from Old Navy with a huge hot pink fabric flower on one side! I don't wear it nearly enough... perhaps I shall pull it out this week!

Ooooh, love that fabric necklace; you're right, it definitely elevates your outfit. I wish I could find interesting pieces like you do on your travels!

Awwww I love accessories - you are totally talking my language. First and foremost I love shoes. But I will actually call that an item of clothing since you need shoes on, ALL THE TIME (unless you are at the beach). Some favorites of mine are: belts, clutches, headbands, long necklaces, bangles & earrings.

By the way all your accessories here are superb, especially the necklace, earrings & sunglasses. WOW!!
