Real Deal: Spring on the Accessories

It can be a difficult and dreary task getting dressed this time of year. The long marathon of bundling up can start to get old as our shortest month of the year begins to feel like the longest. To make matters worse ALL of the stores have put winter gear on clearance and have brought out all the beautiful spring clothes, INCLUDING swim suits. If you are like me and live in the blustery Midwest this is just a big TEASE! We can't even think about wearing ANY of the beautiful colorful spring attire for SEVERAL more months unless lucky enough to be traveling to a warm spot for spring break.

Seeing all that momentarily untouchable color and pattern could just make a girl SCREAM while strapped in her winter boots. So what are we to do? Bundle up in some layers or a neutral sweater and throw on colorful spring inspired accessories!

In my opinion this is the best way to itch the spring scratch and bridge the long gap between February and spring time weather!

Here are 10 of my FAVORITE spring inspired accessory options for $15 or less:
