One of my favorite accessories are my collection of wooden bangles. The rustic, earthy feel of these timber trinkets, are not only uniquely shaped, but give a distinctive sound when 'clanged' against each other. The top stack, I found at various markets around Sicilia varying from a Euro to 3 Euros a piece. After missing an opportunity to buy the three below from a department store website, I found these colorful bangles on clearance at Old Navy the following year.
Nothing like a bag to bring a little attitude to your outfit; although I love a structured leather bag, on a day like today, where sightseeing and shopping are on the agenda, I prefer an over-sized cotton tote bag that plays double duty: a purse and a shopping bag. The fabric is light and airy like the dress, yet sturdy enough to hold any souvenirs I might pick up as I spend the day 'hopping-on-and-off' trolleys!
How Did I Style It?
1, 2, 3 Styling is so easy with a floral print dress like this. The dress came with a tan belt, which I believe limits my accessories, whereas this olive green macrame belt with the wooden details matched the leaves of the floral print, and I used the wooden O-ring in the belt as inspiration for the bangles. I chose the bag for it's functionality as well as the fact that it wouldn't detract from the beauty of the dress, and for the shoes, I went to the Academichic color wheel and used the two-thirds rule of the color triad (violet, green and orange): pairing coral (which is a lighter shade of orange) with olive (which is a darker shade of green)!
