If you’ve been visiting PurseBlog for a while, you probably remember Want It Wednesday, which was a short weekly roundup of what some of the PurseBlog team is lusting after on any particular Wednesday. Because we’re ladies with long shopping lists and nearly endless desires to discuss them with each other (and with you), we’ve decided to bring back this wishful-thinking feature. Today, I’ve got my mind on the summer-perfect Rosantica Aurora Necklace, while our social media specialist Bea wants to get her hands on a pair of Frends Layla Headphones.
I’ve never felt enticed to buy a pair of big headphones; frankly, I’ve never really thought I could pull the look off. Personally, I think Beats are ugly, and my iPhone headphones have always worked just fine, so I never really found the need for new ones. However, my disinterest in headphones quickly ended the second I laid eyes on the Frends Rosegold Layla Headphones. The size is perfect (just big enough to cover your whole ear), and the rose gold, well, that needs no explanation. They’re the chicest headphones I’ve ever seen, and the perfect summer accessory for long walks home. I have a feeling these will soon make their way off my “want” list and onto my ears. Buy them at Nordstrom for $150.
When it’s warm out, I wear a lot (a lot) of black maxi dresses. Not only are they a simple way to look pulled-together on even the hottest day (no peek-through sweat marks, no unfortunate wrinkles), but I love black year-round and the shape makes me feel more statuesque than my rather sturdy 5’6 frame naturally is. To avoid looking like I’m wearing the same thing every day, accessories become important. I’ve got the whole bag thing down, so jewelry is where I try to mix in new pieces and create new moods. A black maxi makes a great canvas for accessories, and the Rosantica Aurora Necklace is particularly well-suited for a dress with an open neckline, open back or both. The tiny beads keeps the necklace feeling delicate, but the rows upon rows of them provide a bold impact. I can already see this gorgeous necklace on top of my favorite deep-V maxi. $780 via Net-a-Porter.
