As promised: part 2 of my spring/ summer shoplog. Today it’s shoes and accessories. Just like last time: remember that I purchased these items in the course of 3 – 4 months, not in one go. Before we hit the jackpot where I’ll show you how I gave my wardrobe a serious spring/ summer update, I will show you the add ons. Shoes and accessories are as important and can make or break any outfit. Here’s what I got in no particular order. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Tan leather wedge sandals (Deichmann/ Van Haren)
First up: my new sandals. I own like one pair of sandals because hardly any of them fit my feet. So when I found these and found out they were real leather I couldn’t pass them up. Unfortunately with the kind of weather we’ve been having I can only hope I’ll be able to wear these out any time soon. They are from the Halle Berry collection by the way.
Faux pearl collar necklace (Sacha)
I had been wanting one of these for a while, but never found one I liked. This one is so cutesy and kitsch that I couldn’t pass it up. I mean: if you’re doing it, you better to it right.
Coral clip closure wallet (Sacha)
The reason why I went into Sacha: I needed a new wallet. My old one gave up on me while I was in the UK. For a while I couldn’t find any I liked. They are all so big and I personally am a bit over carrying a large purse that won’t fit into any bag. This one is so similar to my old one too, that I can easily find my cards without too much thought.
Coral chandelier earrings (Six)
Weeks ago, accessory store Six had a discount on all earrings. When the weather warms up I enjoy wearing dangling earrings so I stocked up. My first pair are these coral ones.
Lilac hoop earrings (Six)
You will find a these in the colors I chose for updating my wardrobe: lilac and lavender have become my new favorite colors. So when I saw these hoop earrings I couldn’t pass them up.
Peach filigree chandelier earrings (Six)
The minute I saw these earrings I loved them. They are super heavy and long though and they hurt my ears after a few hours, but they are so pretty. Very summery looking too.
Black tights (Primark)
I can’t visit Primark without buying tights. I stocked up majorly and I’m glad I did, because I’ve been able to put these to good use with all this rain and dreariness.
Neon coral pink bead necklace (H&M)
This necklace was one of those purchases where I contemplated buying the item for a while. I loved it the minute I saw it, but wasn’t sure. And then… I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. That’s usually a good sign and the color right on trend and since most neons don’t look too good on me, I thought this way I could still wear some neon without looking like a ghost.
Silver arched necklace (Forever 21)
Simple get eyecatching short necklace from Forever 21. These kind of necklaces are right up my alley.
Mint green bib collar necklace (Forever 21)
All I could think when I saw this was: white button up shirt, this necklace. Need I say more?
Lavender/ peach bracelet
Bracelets are not the type of accessory I usually go for. This one I liked a lot (notice that color?) and thought it would be cute for summer.
Lilac bow (American Apparel)
These bows from American Apparel are so cute! I bought a burgundy one in Berlin in August and wore it quite a bit throughout autumn and winter. So I thought I’d add another one in a more spring/ summer color.
Large silver geometric necklace (Primark)
Primark do some great accessories, but this time around I couldn’t find much apart from this necklace. It’s big and chunky and remind me of the time of neck ornaments you see in Egyptian art.
Black ballet flat with metal toe cap (Primark)
Tan cut out loafers (Primark)
Another thing Primark is good at: shoes. Especially there flats are nice as they are cheap and not too uncomfortable. Can’t wait to wear these.
Chunky silver chain necklace (H&M)
I love me some chunky necklaces! If you couldn’t already tell. This short, but chunky chain one makes no exception.
Black cat eye sunglasses (H&M)
Big sunglasses are usually not my thing, but I thought these cat eye ones were so much fun! Plus if they are a bit too big for me that is actually a good thing as I tend to wear sunglasses to shield my eyes from pollen.
Black & white polka dot sunglasses (Forever 21)
AAAAAaaah! I love polka dot prints and so these fit right into that compulsion.
Lilac & blue belt (H&M)
This needs no explanation: I said I was obsessed with anything lilac & lavender right?
Pink heels (Deichmann/ Van Haren)
Neutral heels that look good are so hard to come by. I have a pair of nude heels, but they are patent faux leather and not always right as they are very much a skin color. I was missing a pair of girly pink heels and now that problem has been solved as well.
Alright those are all the shoes and accessories I purchased since February. I hope you liked it and stay tuned because in the next week or two I will be posting the last and most interesting part of this extensive haul which includes dresses, shirts and skirts. Have a good one!
