From Cool Mom Picks
Considering the first day of Spring has just passed, we’re anxious to retire our sweaters and socks and show a little (tanned) ankle. Since we’re not dropping as much cash as we might have in past seasons, we’ve been on the lookout for fun accessories that will help keep last year’s spring threads fresh. And since trends are pointing to bold statements made with vibrant splashes of color, who are we to argue?
Here you’ll find five accessory picks for spring, all under $50, to help you feel like you’ve hop ped off the pages of a magazine–without burning a whole in your wallet the size of those nursing bras.
1. DV by Dolce Vita Purple Sandals
If you’re generally a neutral shoe gal, take a risk this season with some of the gorgeous, saturated colors on the shelves. We’re loving these awesome purple (yes, purple) sandals which add a lot of personality to even a basic outfit without you having to think; always helpful when you’re running on no sleep. ($50 at Piperlime)
2. Polli Earrings
Big, Bollywood style earrings are all the rage right now (thanks, Slumdog Millionaire) but they aren’t always practical for moms with grabby babies. We love the glossy, anodised steel earrings from Australia’s Polli which are chic, lightweight, and come in fun colors from lime to candy apple red. PS: Great earrings make you feel put together, even if you skipped the morning blow out. ($34)
3. Michelle Brusegaard Scarf
We’re all about the recent scarf trend because it’s a super easy accessory to work–just wrap and go. (Also? Good way to disguise telltale magic marker lines before you run out the door.) A lightweight cotton scarf will take you from spring right through to cool summer nights and we are adoring the spirited pink and blue design from artist Michele Brusegaard. ($25)
Big chunky rings are a must in our jewelry boxes, and we especially dig resin or acrylic rings which wipe off in a sec when they end up coated in strained plums, sparkle toothpaste or worse. The bright stripey Rowen ring is a great choice to go from the playground to date night, and the price is right. ($16 at the Carrotbox)
5. Lucy Bag
Put away your black winter handbag and upgrade to bright, shiny, faux patent in a red that won’t be ignored. It’s got plenty of room for diapers, wipes, and whatever other kid "necessities" you’ve got to carry–but with styling like this, who will know? ($50 at Darlybird.)
