What2Add- seaside accessories


top: the limted// belt & skirt: old navy// shoes: diy dolce vita// sunnies: marc by marc jacobs// earrings: hallelu (wrightsville beach but check out the website shophallelu.com)

Welcome to the new What2Wear! After almost throwing in the towel on this little blog I realized after hearing from some readers and friends that you actually like my daily assortment of outfits and shenanigans....so I'm going to add a little more "me" to the blogosphere. I will continue with outfits and snapshots but I'm also adding What2Add (accessories), What2Apply (beauty), What2Read (articles, books & mags) and What2Eat (recipes). I hope you like it...I'm actually pretty freaking stoked about it.

Today I'm starting with one of my long time obsessions: seaside accessories. I think that they just add a little bit of whimsy to every outfit, throw on some repurposed leather octopus earrings and diy seahorse sandals (yes I had to take apart 2 different pairs of sandals and send them to the cobbler to get these babies) and an outfit becomes instantly more interesting! Here are some other finds that are sure to give you some sea legs:

anchors and sailboats plus a jolt of color, yes please!


I get so bored with jewelry but this piece actually excites me!

    1. Yes! I found some sandals with these seahorses several years ago but they didn't fit my feet and i had an old pair of gold sandals that I put the seahorses on!
