Here are my week's Etsy finds:
With the richness of these kimono-styled leather belts by elizabethkelly, I am totally anticipating fall. I can't wait to use one to cinch in all my patterned layers.
I have completely fallen for these black and white and sepia horse prints by equinoxphoto. What an unexpected way to balance colorful, contemporary decor.
I love that these scarves by ColorSprouts infuse a touch of sophistication into tie dye by using silk.
While Etsy seller amberike calls these "Hand Dandy Button Bookmarks," I would totally use them for their original purpose to spice up office life.
What are you favorite Etsy finds?

Five summer basics that I couldn’t live without include Bondage Skirts, Tunics, Sequined Tanks, Rompers & and Blowsy Shorts. I love bondage skirts because they are so simple, so comfy & they literally look good with any top. I own three! But I think everyone needs at least one neutral and one in a funky color or print. My favorite style to pair with these slim fitting skirts, or any slim bottom, is tunics (think “upside down pyramid”). Cool & breezy, tunics also offer a level of comfort. And I am all about dressing comfortably & effortlessly this summer! I love a classic white style or nautical stripe. To keep a slim illusion layer a heavy necklace on top of these flowing tops.
For an effortless night out throw on a sequined tank – with jeans, leggings, shorts, or as a dress. Sequins allow just the right amount of sparkle minimizing the need for a lot of jewelry. In +90* weather no one loves to pile on jewelry…I don’t care what Rachel Zoe says!
Rompers are so playful! I think we all should pay homage to our childhood this summer! These onesies are perfect for a day of errands, lunch with the girls, sporting events, a trip to the zoo…you get the picture. If you want to set yourself apart try a luxe fabrication like silk. Or make this look your own by adding a belt or boyfriend blazer.
I have never been a shorts fan myself, however, this year, due to numerous vacationing, I have picked up a couple of styles. My favorite pair is pleated, blousy, and silky! Kind of frivolous because they are dry clean only, but it was love at first sight! I also got two pairs that were cuffed because they are so flattering, making my legs look longer & leaner.
I will briefly speak on my view of accessories. I’m much more of a clothes junky than jewelry. I don’t usually pile on a whole lot of jewelry, but I do apply the theory that bigger is better when it comes to accessories. Be it cocktail rings, necklaces, earrings, belts or shoes, I can’t resist a statement piece!
