Neutral Accessories (And a $100 Shopbop Gift Card Giveaway!)

When it comes to shoes and most accessories, I’m very partial to gold, tan and silver. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve rationalized buying yet another pair of gold sandals. (Goes with everything! Neutral, but with a twist! I JUST NEED THEM, OKAY???) In fact, I attempted putting together a quick photo shoot of my collections, but quickly started to realize I might need to join Neutral Accessories Anonymous. Maybe at a later date…

I’m a huge fan of the megawatt bright clothing we’re seeing all over the place, and what do you know? Neutral accessories pair beautifully. Here are some of my current favorites.

I’m really lusting after that Tory Burch clutch (clutch, wristlet, whatever) on the bottom right. Isn’t it the perfect date night bag? (For the record, I’m not a big fan of  large insignia on accessories, but there are some really nice Tory Burch hobos and Tory Burch totes that are a demure step back from the larger insignia she introduced years ago.)

Are you thinking you need to add a neutral or two to your collection? Well, you’re in luck! My friends over at Shopbop are offering one fabulous commenter a $100 gift certificate! (Don’t you love Shopbop? I love the store, I love the Shopbop Blog, I love it all.) And if neutrals aren’t your thing, no worries! You can use the gift certificate for whatever strikes your fancy. Just leave a comment here before Friday, May 20th at 6pm PST and you’ll be entered to win. (International readers are welcome to enter as well.)

Good luck!

    Prefer the smaller insignia too, and am a fan of all clutch purses. So impractical, but so cute!

    I love clutches because I can keep them in my diaper bag in the day and then in the (rare) event I go out in the evening, it’s all I need.

    I am in love with that straw beach tote! We have a little pond/lake spot down the road from us and I have plans to go daily this summer, and a tote like that would be perfect.

    You mean I don’t have to “like” it, tweet about it, stumble upon it…???”

    Thank you. =)

    I just bought my first pair of gold shoes – ballet flats from GAP – and I LOVE them! They’re so versatile! I love those bangles. I think I need some. Now.
