ALL IN THE DETAILS: Golden Flowers

Gold accents and functional flower print handbags! The last bits of summer are upon us and it’s almost time to ditch the dresses for warm sweaters. But, who said accessories had anything to do with it? Here’s a few tips on how to find and keep those evergreen staples in your wardrobe.

First of all, you have to hunt down a decent handbag. One that is bright and lively enough to uplift you on those windy days to come, yet can also carry your heavy books and laptop. Never compromise when it comes to competency and cuteness!

I am absolutely obsessed with this Fashionista’s flower print, quilt design tote bag that sort of resembles Vera Bradley. I have always been more a fan of neutrals, mostly because they’re easy to pair and you can’t really go wrong. However, this bag especially stood out to me because of its warmth and creativity. Who says you can’t mix it up, am I right?

Next up, jewelry and booties. I love anything gold so obviously I have to bring attention to the gold necklace. Of course, it’s a common design but its simplicity is what makes small accents so attractive. The necklace helps the yellow on the tote bag pop and, although a small contribution, completes the look head to toe. The booties are a cute staple of comfort and functionality, which I’m always a fan of.

You’ll need a light gray dress and booties to get this look. The handbag I’ll leave totally up to you, so find something that inspires you!
