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!

    I know the feeling :) I’m literally typing with crossed fingers!! I can’t wait to get some more pretty gold sandals, especially since no one can object if it’s on a gift card…

    My mom is a fan of reminding me that redheads shouldn’t wear silver. She would be thrilled to see my in those t-strap sandals. (And I wouldn’t mind either!)

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks :)

    I can’t justify owning a large collection of sandals, given our shorter season of nice weather here in NE Ohio, but I do love jewelry…

    :-) what an awesome giveaway! I know I’ll have a difficult time finding what exactly to buy because I love everything shopbop has to offer! Id probably aim for a blush toned blazer as I’m finding it hard to purchase one in nyc! Lol

    Xxxo, Vanessa

    I’m such a fan of t-shaped sandals. And it’s funny, because I used to refuse to wear gold, and now I find myself routinely wishing I had a single go-to gold necklace. One of these days.
