Accessories to Freshen Up My Wardrobe

I’m not easily swayed by sales as I plan most of my purchases for a long time and try to only buy items that I truly love and know I’ll own for a long time. But I do believe in freshening up my look with accessories, and the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is a great time to pick up items on my wish list. Plus, I keep my accessories for years. Many of my scarves and necklaces are 15+ years old, and I always enjoy wearing them as they can really change up an outfit.

One of my favorite scarves* is part of the sale, and I just ordered one to give as a gift to a friend who always comments that she loves the scarf when I wear it.

Statement Scarf 01


There are several other scarves and wraps that I’m tempted to pick up: 


During last year’s Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale, I picked up one of my favorite bags - a light pink Rebecca Minkoff MAB bag (similar) -  for just over $100. I later realized that the bag was truly a steal - a great price, and I know I’ll own and love it for years.

This Rebecca Minkoff bag, which is part of the sale, is very nice, too. But what I’m really looking for is a brown(ish) crossbody (saddle)bag so that I can alternate between a brown bag and my black Rebecca Minkoff Dog Clip Saddle bag (bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in July). I use the black bag almost every day and would like to give it a break once in a while. There are several brown bags part of the sale that are very nice:


Questions: Are you planning on buying anything during the Nordstrom HalfYearly Sale or other sales? If so, what do you have your eye on?

  4. I am trying to have restraint and not buy anything. December is hard for me because it's my birthday month, so besides gifts, I always feel the need to shop with my rewards from many stores! Yikes!! I haven't even worn everything I got new yet!!
    That purse is an unexpected color---it's so nice to know that the things you bought awhile ago will still make you smile!

  6. I remember this scarf, I think...from an earlier post. It features all of my favorite colors. I am a pushover for anything green. Truly lovely.

    1. Yes, I have posted about the scarf a few times now. I actually bought it in September 2015, and it sold out very quickly. They brought it back in 2016, and I guess it's still around... I truly love it.

  9. I love my MAB bag! Yes, it's a classic for sure! For the after Xmas sales, I got a Kate Spade bag, over the knee boots, Kendra Scott earrings, and two plaid shirts. That was restraint for me! ;P Love your scarf!
    Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday and wishing you the best in 2017!
