Accessories to Help You Stand Out in the Office

I don’t need to tell you how much time you spend at work. No matter what you do (unless you’re Ryan Gosling’s tailor) you probably wish your job was a little bit better.  Or cuter.

These accessories are guaranteed to make your day a little brigher, and all are under $100!

On Your Desk

These pencil and pen organizers have adorable hand-crocheted covers with hand-embroidered labels.

Show visitors to your bookshelf how wise (and stylish) you are with these ceramic bookends.

If you you geek out over colors, trivia, gadgets, or even keeping notes, this desktop office block is for you. Described as an “interactive daykeeper,” this calendar features black, heat-sensitive squares that fade away to reveal fun trivia facts.  It’s certainly a fun pop of color for your cubicle.

Accessorize Yourself!

This summery bow belt is reminiscent of Kate Spade but priced more like Forever 21.

Similarly pink, this oversized necklace from Anthropologie  will perk you up on afternoons when you’d rather be at lunch with friends.

Add a little whimsy to a plain white button-up with this elephant print top from ASOS.

How do you bring your personality to your desk space?  Do you like wearing bold accessories to stand out at work?  Sound off in the comments!

P.S. Tips on dressing for the office.

Feeling Flighty

Spring has sprung, lovely readers!  And I’ve been noticing cute bird adorned accessories popping up everywhere.  Which reminds me of this hilarious clip from Portlandia.  (Do any of you watch it?)


It’s funny because IT’S SO TRUE! Why do birds make everything cuter?!

Here are a few bird accessories I’ve been lusting after…

This rainbow bird pillow would be so cute in a kid’s room.  (Or mine!)

I’m SO making a DIY bird bookmark!

This be free sparrow necklace is one of a kind!

This bird-adorned coin purse would be awesome for storing makeup on the go.

Are you a fan of bird accessories?  Which is your favorite above?  And do you watch Portlandia?

Wedding Wednesday: Pretty Engagement Rings, Which Would You Wear?

Here’s something I haven’t done in years…

Before Travis and I got engaged, I used to secretly (and sometimes not-so-secretly) browse the web looking at engagement rings and fantasizing about him getting down on one knee.  Well it’s been almost two years since he popped the question, and I miss looking at pretty jewelry!

So let’s have some fun lusting over a few engagement rings this morning… and tell me: which would you wear?

I think my favorite is #3… swoon!
