Budget saving tips

Welcome to Budget Saving Tuesday!  The day I offer tips to help you stretch your dollars and accomplish more.

Today, I am discussing smart accessories + offer you a fun accessory giveaway!

I personally believe the best way to build versatility into a wardrobe and get more bang for your buck is with smart accessories.


Smart Accessories

What makes accessories smart? 

I think there are several ways to have smart accessories:

  1.  Smart accessories help to speak the overall style messages you want to say with your wardrobe.  My accessories are selected with “creativity” in mind.
  2.  Smart accessories do not go out of style but can live in your wardrobe and enhance your looks from season to season.
  3. Smart accessories will go with the majority of clothing you own.

4.  Smart accessories support your color palette….this is why I wear gold and bronze accessories over silver now.

Just as I have changed my wardrobe to only reflect my warm, vibrant autumn palette, so have a gleaned my accessories to only be those which compliment the same palette.

That smart way keeps everything working together and creates a plethora of new looks with the same pieces.  That is budget saving!

If you are a winter classic woman, your smart accessories will look very different from mine.  Simple, silver, pearls….much much different but it still works the same.

5. There are several ways smart accessories are sustainable.  

First, longevity is sustainability.  When you have the right colors and styles, then they live longer in your wardrobe.

Second, since I like creative smart accessories, I do love artisan sites….like World Finds.

Their mission statement says: “Our mission is to uplift artisans by creating dignified work, meaningful opportunities and long term partnerships. From the repurposed textiles to the handcrafted, small batch production methods used by our artisans all the way to the packing materials we use to ship your order, we strive for sustainability every step of the way. This journey has been one of progress, not perfection! We are always striving for ways to continue to be more eco-friendly.”

It is always fun to discover what artisans create….like this Kantha Garland Necklace necklace that I love so much and is very affordable. 

My cost per wear is already low with this necklace…I have worn it often.
