Shopping for Spring Accessories

Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are having a good weekend.  We have been blessed with beautiful weather.  Yesterday, the Mister and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch, tackled some errands, and even got in some shopping.  Btw... Talbots is having a 30% off sale on your entire purchase.

I love to shop for accessories because I don't have to deal with sizes or trying anything on, except for shoes.    

I spotted some cute things yesterday and even indulged in a few. 

If you haven't guessed by now, I am a big "scarf" person.  I like them for a couple of reasons.  First of all, a scarf can take a somewhat boring outfit and take it up a notch.  Secondly, it brings the eye up away from my a tummy bulge or wide hips.  Lastly, and most importantly, it covers my a turkey neck.  

Here are a few that caught my eye.


I have almost all of the Tuckernuck scarves.  
They are a great size - big enough to wear as a wrap.
I bought this dress and scarf.


I am in the market for a new foldable hat.
Many are now offering sun protection.

I snapped this selfie of me trying one on yesterday.


Just like many of my friends that are shoe people, I am a sucker for a cute purse.

My #1 has this purse.
This one comes with a few color choices for the liner.

This one is great for evening wear.



When I find a pair of shoes that are both cute and comfortable, I stick with them.  Toni Pons come in a variety of colors and heel height.

I am not going to tell you how many pairs I own for fear of the Mister reading this.


I also discovered Charleston shoes last Summer which are equally comfortable. 


These are really comfy.




I also love to shop for cute Summery costume jewelry.


Last, but not least, here are a couple of purchases that I made that I am delighted with.


This eyelet top is even prettier in real life.


These high-waisted jeans fit me like a glove and are super comfy.  

In conclusion, did you know that today is National No Housework Day?  I look forward to this day all year long.

What a perfect excuse to ditch the mop and go shopping!

Until next time...

I'm not the only one in the family that covets accessories.

  1. Love the scarves and those cute shoes . . . sadly, my Mister - who apparently has nothing to do the morning - is looking over my shoulder inquiring what I’m doing. I assured him I am NOT online shopping but simply catching up with my dear friend, the Preppy Empty Nester’s, latest blog posts, and what is it to him anyway. Harrumph . . . #caughtintheact

  2. I'm seeing a lot of seriously cute here! I might have to shop.

  3. Oh my those scarves. I want every one of them. I really like the eyelet top too. It looks just like you!

  4. Thanks!! I always love these posts you do and have clicked a couple of the links to go shopping myself!

  5. In love scarves, too but can't wear then in warm weather. I just did some damage in Chico's for jewelry...my weakness!! Have a great week!

  6. Cute, cute, cute! Love scarves, for warmth mostly. All that jewelry is adorable, so are the purses. I still have the wicker basket purse I made in 5th grade with monogrammed needlepoint front panel and fabric lining, grosgrain ribbon - remember those? That one which is 2 down from the suggested evening wicker reminded me of it. :) Lately, though, all I've been wearing are clothes to get dirty in while packing.....ugh. Have a great week!

  7. I had never heard of Toni Pons - love the look! I really enjoyed my inexpensive straw hat from Amazon on our recent vacation. Great shade from the caribean sun!

  8. I'm also a sucker for a cute purse and those monogramed totes are giving me all the feels. Visiting you from the hello Monday link up. laurensparks.net

  9. I can't wear hats but LOVE those bags and scarves! Amazon is one of my fav places to shop because I can get things so quickly! Thanks for sharing all the wonderful eye candy! Hugs!

  10. LOve the jewelry, those rattan earrings! I always love straw or rattan bags and am writing a post myself on bags and shoes for Spring. The scarves are beautiful and I am an Anthro fan too, love that print!

  11. Visiting from Boxing Daily. We do speaking tours. Love the scarves, hats, jewelry ... ok, all of it. Nicely done, Sis. Now if my two could only refrain from saying "stand away from the scarves, Mom" ...

  12. Love the article!! You have fabulous taste, love all of the accessories! Thanks so much for sharing.

  13. Well, thanks, I'm in search of a couple of scarves so off to Amazon I'm headed and that eyelet top, too cute!

  14. Great selection of scarves, love them but not in the summer heat here! Always fun to find great bags and shoes as well. Happy spring.

  15. I'm loving your picks! I always forget about scarves in the spring and summer, but the lightweight ones make such a great accessory!

  16. I love all the choices you picked out! I want to go shopping with you! Did you get that hat with the black band? Really cute! I have never bought a hat for summer, but that is really cute! Fun post!
