On my way back from work this evening, I popped into Accessorize to pick up a new pair of sunglasses. It was meant to be just a quick trip. However, I ended up getting tempted by lots of pretty things! As soon as I walked over to the sunglasses section, my eyes were immediately drawn to this bright neon pink pair. They just screamed summer.Definitely, entirely ridiculous. But just so fun. How could I resist? The frames are highlighter bright and have a soft matte finish that reminds me of gummy sweets. Subtle, these are not!
As I’d set my heart on buying the daft neon pair, I felt that I simply had to get another pair that I would be able to wear with smarter outfits, when I wasn’t channeling my inner raver. Step forward the aviators. I’ve been looking to get a pair in this style for a while, but all the ones I have tried so far always seem a bit too big for my face. These were just right. It was meant to be.Sunglasses mission accomplished, I thought. But I ended up spying a few more little distractions en route to the tills… I feel that you can never have enough shoes, and these little navy beauties are so cute and comfortable that I know that I will get lots of use out of them. I think that the folded bow on the front is adorable. Also, when I checked the receipt on the way out, I realised that these were called the Lucy Loop Patent Bow. A shoe that shares a name with me!?! Brilliant. Whilst I was perusing the jewellery, I spotted a girl trying on this stunning gold head band. My magpie instinct took over and I immediately swooped in for the next head band on the rack. The headband is made of lots of beautiful gold hollow leaves, attached to a stretchy band at the bottom. It’s just so gorgeous. I love it.Magpie Lucy strikes again! I’ve been searching for a pretty, but non-blingy ring for quite a while and this was just what I’ve been looking for. It looks like it could be vintage and like it’s worth so much more than the £12 I paid for it. The opally/pearly centre looks beautiful when it catches the light.I was definitely heading towards the check out at this point, but there was one final piece that caught my eye! This sparkly bracelet beckoned me over, calling to me. I’ve got very slim wrists so bracelets can be a bit tricky for me. No one wants their bracelets to just fall off. However, this little gem has a concealed elastic which means it stays safely on my wrist. It is a little bit blingier than I would normally go for, but I love the shape of the bracelet segments and they reminded me a little bit of insect eyes. I think this will work well with both smart and casual outfits so I’m looking forward to getting lots of use out of it.
So, there you have my Accessorize haul. I’d really recommend popping in and having a snoop round. I guarantee that you’ll find something you like. I definitely ended up leaving with a bit more than I bargained for!
