Top Ten Spring  2014 Accessories and Nail Polish

Spring is officially here and while it might not feel exactly like it outside, I’m already in spring shopping mode. In addition to plotting my next pedicure and what shoes I’ll be showing it off in, I’ve be online window browsing for my spring accessory needs.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite bags, shoes, jewelry and more for the upcoming season and ID’ing which nail polishes I would pair with them.

Cobalt Blue

It’s no secret that I’m in a major love affair with cobalt right now. I recently showed you a bunch of fab cobalt nail polish shades.

And even though I own a couple blue purses, I’m having serious cravings for the Rebecca Minkoff 5-Zip Mini Crossbody Bag ($195, I love Minkoff bags, I own four, and this particular style is one I’ve been eyeing for my next purchase. In fact, there’s a Rebecca Minkoff sale starting today on and I definitely plan to indulge.

If a bright blue bag isn’t your think, consider these bold American Rag wedges ($49.99, or Nordstrom Geo Print Stripe Scarf ($42, They would all pair well with JINSoon Cool Blue or Dior Sailor, part of the summer Transatlantique collection for Saks.

Mint Green

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to see mint making a comeback. I think we needed some distance after the Chanel Jade craze, and its seemingly nonstop trail of dupes, to fully embrace the shade again. And I’m all for it.

Cat-eye sunglasses are a shape I need in my repertoire as I tend to wear aviators or wayfarers most often. This pair by FE NY ($22, is just my style. I’m also liking the idea of a cool mint belt, like this one from J.Crew ($34.50,, around the waist of a little black sundress. And seriously, how cute are these color-blocked sandals by Joe’s Jeans ($85,

Confession, I’m probably one of the few women on the planet who doesn’t have pierced ears. So, I was really excited when ear cuffs became a thing. The problem… so many of them have a post. I found this delicate floral one from Free People ($58, so that has to happen, soon.

Wear any of these items with Dermelect Au Courant, Essie Fashion Playground or Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Pique Side.

Finally, when is coral not on trend for spring? It’s the perfect mix of sunrise and sunset and instantly makes you feel warmer, no matter how cold and rainy your spring may be.

Now, of all the arm candy options out there, at my core, I’m a watch girl. I feel naked without one and I’ve always been a fan of colorful watches over plain silver or gold. After getting the boyfriend a skeleton watch for Christmas, I now want one of my own and this coral Marc by Marc Jacobs Henry Skeleton ($175, is calling my name.

The boater in me is always on the lookout for fun deck shoes and having a Sperry store in my closest mall is a dangerous thing. These coral Sperry Top-Siders ($84.95, need to be in my closet, like now! And since these 55mm Cat-eye Sunglasses ($38, are so cheap, I can’t resist. I mean, you can’t wear mint every day, right?

Nail polishes to compliment coral accessories: Essie Resort Fling, NCLA I Only Fly Private, OPI Live.Love.Carnival

    Squee! What a great post! I too have a love for all things Rebecca Minkoff. I have a mini Mac bag that’s woven with that cobalt blue and hot pink that I’ve been trying to reimagine into a mani, and a pair of mint sandals by her. I def need to use my fashion obsession to inspire my nail obsession more often, thanks!
