Classic Accessories You Need in Your Wardrobe + Best of The Shopbop Sale
Today I’m sharing a few of the accessories that are worth every penny. These items are staples in my closet and actually get worn and used all the time. Plus, for the next few days. EVERY single one of the items mentioned in today’s post is on sale! Keep reading to see the classic accessories you need in your life plus my top recommendations from the Shopbop Sale that’s running through September 29th.
Tory Burch Miller SandalsI honestly did not understand the hype around these sandals for years. I thought they were overpriced due to the Tory Burch logo, but after seeing friend after friend say they were their all-time favorite shoes, I decided to give them a try. I’d always thought they were super cute, but my fear was that I’d waste a huge chunk of money on a cute pair of sandals that would fall apart after wearing them a few times. Long story short, I WAS WRONG, and the hype is REAL.
I bought this pair earlier this year, and I literally wear them at least a few days a week. They’re extremely comfortable, look great with everything, and they work with so many different types of outfits. While this exact color isn’t on sale, there are a bunch of other colors in this style on sale right now! Even though they’re not cheap, I can honestly say I’ve gotten my money’s worth and more from these sandals. I wear them all the time, and they still look brand new. I feel like they’ll last for years, so I’d definitely recommend them – sale or not! Click here to see all of the colors available here.

Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps
Ok, be prepared for a trend in this post. I LOVE Sam Edelman shoes. I am someone who’s always bought extremely affordable shoes (and still do), BUT I really hate spending even a small amount of money on shoes and having them break or look worn out after only a few wears. Plus, as I get older, comfort is more and more important to me.
Without a doubt, I have to say that Sam Edelman shoes are the best value in the shoe market when it comes to comfort, design, and longevity. No, they’re not super cheap, but they’re extremely well-priced for cushioned shoes with real leather and quality construction. I’ve bought quite a few over the past few years, and ALL of them look almost brand new despite me wearing them frequently. Plus, they’re some of the most comfortable shoes in my closet.
Ok, now that you’ve listened to me sing the praises of Sam Edelman, let’s talk about the Hazel pumps. I bought my first pair Hazels two years ago (the burgundy pair shown below), and I’ve literally worn them DOZENS of times. They are the most comfortable pumps I’ve ever owned, and even after two years of heavy wear, they look exactly like the photo below. Plus, they have never given me a blister. A few months ago, I picked up a pair of these amazing heels in a leopard print, and it was love at first sight!
No matter which color you choose, I really think you’re going to love these shoes. They’re classy enough for the office and sassy enough for date night. Plus, the design of the heels are really flattering on your legs, and the cushioned insole will keep your feet comfortable for hours. Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. Everyone needs a pair! Click here to see all of the colors of the Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps that are on sale right now.

Madewell Whisper TeeOk, we’re going to take a short break from accessories to talk about one of the best t-shirts on the market. The Shopbop Sale brings the price of these shirts down to Target prices, and I’d definitely recommend stocking up. I own two, and I will definitely be adding a few more colors to my closet for fall. These t-shirts are extremely flattering, wash well, and hold up over time. I’d say they basically run true to size with a slightly relaxed fit. I have my normal size (shown above) and one size up that I knot at the bottom for a tighter fit. I love both sizes, so it’s really up to you based on how you prefer your shirts to fit!

Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag
I’m not someone who buys a lot of expensive handbags. In fact, I’m not someone who buys a lot of handbags – period. It’s not that I don’t appreciate a beautiful design, but I’m just not someone who changes out their handbag on a daily basis. With that being said, I do like having a few different styles for different types of outfits. When I’m headed to a special event, I ALWAYS reach for this handbag. It looks like a Chanel bag with a price tag at least 10x higher, and as you’ve heard me say about all of the things in this post, it matches everything, has great construction, and holds up extremely wear despite repeated wear.
If you’re looking for a handbag that looks like a designer bag without the crazy designer price tag, I’d really urge you to look into this handbag. It is SO beautiful, and it’s always the first handbag people notice when they look through my closet. Click here to shop all of the colors on sale here.
Sam Edelman Yaro Sandals
Without a doubt, these are the MOST-worn heels in my collection. They are the perfect open-toe sandal heel, and they’re surprisingly comfortable considering the height of the heel. If you’ve seen any of my outfit posts over the past year, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve worn these shoes in at least 90% of my photos. The reason is simple: they are the perfect shoes and look good with anything. If you’re only looking to invest in one new pair of shoes, buy this style!

Sam Edelman Felicia Ballet FlatsI’m going to make a bold declaration about these shoes. These ballet flats are THE BEST flats in the entire world. End of story. I’ve tried almost every ballet flat on the market, and without fail, they always give me blisters and are terribly uncomfortable. This style of ballet flats is some sort of miracle. When I bought my first pair, I put them on, and they required literally zero break-in time. If you’ve bought a pair of ballet flats before, you know this is unheard of. They always need to be broken in, but not this style!
In addition to being comfortable from the start, these flats have the best cushioning on the sole, the cutest design, and the best longevity. They are without a doubt the most comfortable shoes I own other than sneakers, and they were LITERALLY the only shoes I wore on a daily basis while I was pregnant other than flip flops. After wearing them literally every day for almost ten months of pregnancy, I went ahead and invested in three more pairs. If you need a good pair of cute everyday shoes, these ballet flats are your best bet! Click here to see the colors that are on sale.
Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag
You’ve probably noticed a trend that almost all of the accessories shown in this post are made by Sam Edelman or Rebecca Minkoff, and here’s the reason why. They’re mid-priced brands with AMAZING quality and beautiful designs. With both brands, I bought one item, fell in love, and quickly picked up another… and then another… and then another… because I have never been let down by the quality for the price.
If you’re looking for a small, on-the-go handbag, the Mini MAC doesn’t disappoint. It’s such a fun design, and it looks great with every outfit. Before I became a mom, I used to carry this handbag all the time because it’s just the right size to fit your keys, wallet, cell phone, and a few other small items. It’s a bit small if I’m traveling with a baby, but it’s still great for special events or a night out with friends! Click here to see the colors currently on sale.
Quay It’s My Way Sunglasses
I love Quay sunglasses. They have the trendiest designs that are cool without being crazy, and the quality is great. The two pairs I own from the brand are both some of my most-worn sunglasses, and this gorgeous pair is currently on sale. I love the oversized frames, and I also love that they’re super comfortable when you’re wearing them. Definitely a great price point for high-quality sunglasses.Click here to shop these sunglasses. | See these sunglasses styled in a full outfit here.
Sam Edelman Odila
My last recommendation in this post is going to be this gorgeous pair of scalloped heels. They have a lower heel than most of my shoes, but the mid-level height is great if you’re looking for a more comfortable option for shoes. These would work perfectly for church, brunch with friends, or a casual date night. They are so pretty and always make me smile when I wear them. Like all Sam Edelman shoes, the quality is incredible, and the comfort level is unmatched. | Click here to see all of the colors currently on sale.
