Totally Tortoise

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that a tortoiseshell watch may actually be MORE versatile and practical than silver or gold. Personally, I believe that you should invest in one really nice watch, so it was a pretty big decision for me. I went back and forth between a bunch of colors and styles before finally deciding on a medium-sized tortoise Michael Kors watch. It seemed like the best choice as something I could wear every day- not too wintery or summery, not too casual but also not too extravagant. Since I have a small wrist, the medium size is noticeable but not overwhelming. I would definitely recommend buying one!

It's A Jungle Out There!

This is definitely a trend that took a while to grow on me. Maybe it's just my partiality towards simplicity, or the cumulative effects of watching Jersey Shore, but until recently I was pretty wary of wearing anything with animal print. In the past few months, though, I've seen so many gorgeous outfits with safari-inspired accessories. The pop of print allows your outfit to be fun and exciting and still be totally classy and elegant! I finally gave in and bought a pair of flats- I'm officially obsessed!
