My Favorite Accessories

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

No good outfit is complete without accessories! My personal style is rather minimal with the clothing with a larger emphasis on the accessories. I have just about as many accessories as I do clothes! Here are just a few of my favorites that I rotate between regularly.

Floppy Hats

Hats are great for a multitude of reasons but I love them for their versatility. Depending on the style and color, you can style them to blend with all seasons throughout the year. They’re also great on second or third day hair. (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Click here to read about how to take better care of your hair.)

Chunky Necklaces

My all-time favorite accessory to finish off an outfit is a big chunky necklace. Most of my necklaces are short and chunky because I find that they look the best with the majority of my wardrobe. I have cultivated a great group of neutral based necklaces that work with any outfit. Using basic tones of silver and gold are my favorite and add a subtle hint of glam to the outfit.

Bold Earrings

If I’m not wearing a chunky necklace, odds are that I’m wearing a pair of bold earrings. My favorite way to style bold earrings are with a scarf and an up-do. I love the simple statement earring look and think it’s an absolute classic.

Glam Wrist Accessories

Even with all the girly glam of the necklace and earring accessories up by your face, there is always room for more glam throughout your outfit in other areas. I love adding bracelets to outfits and many of the pieces I’m attracted to incorporate some element of glam. I think it’s a great way to tie all your accessories together and complete an outfit.

Wedding Day Accessories

003

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Happy Wedding Wednesday Everyone! I wanted to talk to you guys about some day of accessories I’ve picked up to bring the whole look together. Since I can’t share the dress yet, the least I can do is show the accessories, right? I’m not your conventional bride by any means. I don’t want something old, I don’t want to borrow something, I don’t want something blue, BUT I will take everything new. J That whole saying just never really made sense to me and I never thought it was something I would actually do, so I didn’t! (Don’t be afraid to break traditions in order to maintain your personality.) Also, can we talk about the garters? What is the point of that? I don’t get it nor do I want it. Just give me the essentials and I’ll be perfectly content. So, that is exactly what I purchased.

Shoes

Wedding shoes are beautiful and extravagant and their prices often reflect that. However, I know myself and I know that as soon as pictures are done, I’m throwing the shoes in the corner and rocking it barefoot all night. (You can call me gross, that’s fine) Heels are beautiful but that beauty often comes at a price! Instead, I opted for a lower heel (three and a half inches is my low) that was neutral enough that I know I would wear after the wedding for everyday occasions. Which is how I found these beautiful little babies. They’re definitely on the plain side but after the wedding celebrations, I can see myself pairing these with a pair of rose colored jeans and a blue and white striped buttoned down blouse. Ugh! I can’t wait to actually get some use out of these! I found these originally on Macy’s but I purchased them on Amazon for the same price (I like Amazon’s return policy more than Macy’s).

Hairpiece

This was too tempting to pass up. I knew I wanted a little something for my hair and knew I needed it to pack a punch of bling. Luckily, the boutique I purchased my dress at, had a variety of selection and this wasn’t too bad of a price! I’m really excited to see this pull together all of my bling on the big day!

Earrings

The bling doesn’t stop there. I got these beauties to compliment the hairpiece. I like the subtly of these earrings. They aren’t over the top and huge (like some of my other earrings can get). They are just enough sparkle! I picked these up at Nordstrom Rack for a great price, considering the brand.
