We love discovering new trends and rely on our favorite blogs and magazines to keep us in the know. When we find a look we love, we tend to embrace it in lots of different ways – through clothing, accessories, home décor, and beyond. In today’s “Trend Watch” feature, see how Casey incorporates tortoiseshell into her life.
My affinity for tortoiseshell accents began when I was a pre-teen and my cousin Kenny started her own belt business. After perusing her impressive inventory of preppy ribbons, I selected a pink and green whale print, accented with a tortoiseshell buckle. While the print was a bit much for everyday wear, the buckle was the perfect neutral; and thus began my love affair with all things tortoiseshell.
In addition to the Insta-famous spoons from NYC’s Happy Bones, here are a few two-tone items I’m coveting these days.
- Oscar De La Renta Acorn Ice Bucket
I’m not currently in the market for an ice bucket, but if I were…
- Tory Burch Chase Ballet Flats / Pumps
If there is one true constant in life, it is Tory Burch’s endless selection of two-toned treasures. I love the large cuffs and sweet studs, but my favorite of Tory’s tortoiseshell range are the “Chase” flats and pumps.
- L. Erickson Hair Accessories
For someone who complains about how Jennifer Aniston always wears her hair the same way, I could really stand to mix up my ‘do every once in a while. These adorable accessories may be just what I need to get creative in the morning. (I love the lighter tortoiseshell option!)
- FRENDS Headphones
My pink earbuds have seen better days and it’s definitely time for a replacement pair. With these, my morning commute just got a lot more stylish…
- Accessory Concierge Half Moon Pendant
This simple necklace will pair perfectly with all my favorite sweaters. Just a touch of sparkle makes the tortoiseshell shine!
- Tortoiseshell Mirror
I have been on the hunt to find the perfect tortoiseshell mirror and have yet to find any I love as much as this (sold-out!) piece from One Kings Lane. They say you find love when you stop looking…time will tell!
- Neiman Marcus Glassware
These wine glasses + my favorite Gewürztraminer + Scandal = ideal Thursday night.
- Bobbi Brown “Cool” Eye shadow PaletteSix of my go-to shades in a sleek tortoiseshell compact? Bobbi Brown continues to prove that she is truly a girl after my own heart.
