Again, it has been insane and awesome and crazy here in Alaska, and I have been having so much fun! I thought I would take a quick minute to share stuff I’ve been working on.
Basically, living in Juneau is amazing, but one thing I really miss is the mall. And Target. And also every other store that isn’t Fred Meyers. But don’t get me wrong, I love me some Fred Meyers, but sometimes you need to spruce up a drab transition wardrobe with some good accessories. The clothes options may be limited here, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer with the same outfit everyday! Below are some of my favorite pieces, enjoy!
This is my favorite headband of all time! It has wire on the inside and is super comfy to wear, it also stays on my head regardless of what my hair is doing. I bought this one at Target but you can find them at Forever 21 too! Also, follow me on Instagram for more silly stuff like this 🙂 @dressingoptimistically
The owls are among us! I don’t wear dangly earrings very often, but when I do, I go crazy. These adorable earrings came to me from my amazing cousin who works at a super cute independent bookstore here in Juneau. You can find their website here, they have books, toys, jewelry and all the other random things you could need! Check them out, also yay local business!
This earring combo is my usually, with small jems in my cartilege and these really cool studs I picked up at another local store called Kindred Post. If you can’t tell, the earring itself is a light blue stone with a gold cap on it. The store is in downtown Juneau and is a tiny post office with other cute stuff. It’s all very hipstery for Juneau, so naturally I love it.
Statement pieces are my life! I have become obsessed with necklaces that could possibly double as its own shirt. And this necklace might not be that big, but I love this thing! I also get an amazing amount of compliments on it, plus it makes quite a bit of noise when I move. I’m pretty sure I got this one at Forever 21. I’ve worn this thing a lot in the past year, here are some of my favorite outfits with it 🙂

Exciting news! This necklace is from a super cool store called Boho Betty. They’re based in the UK but are starting to branch out to the states with cute stuff, and I’m obsessed! I also got a super cute bracelet that you can see below plus some cool earrings that were impossible to take a good picture of, click here to see more of their stuff! And even better, you can use the code “dressingoptimistically” for 20% off your whole order if you want. Go crazy!
This piece has a great little story behind it. The pendant and chain are from my lovely Aunt, and the gold ring was a gift from my Grandma when I was like 4 years old and they went to Greece. It even used to fit my baby finger! In high school, I found them both and decided to put them together. It’s my go to dainty dangle necklace and it has such a great history. So cute right?
I’m obsessed with watches right now. They look so grownup and I am actually learning how to tell time quickly. Plus, so cute right? This one was also about 12 dollars at Walmart and water resistant.
This is another piece from Boho Betty! Their main products are these wrap bracelets, and I went with a more delicate looking one to go with my favorite watches. I don’t think I’m converted to full out bracelet wearing yet, but this one is pretty cute and I’m getting more excited about it.
I was pleasantly surprised by this bracelet especially because I thought it was cute online but was a little worried about the fit. Turns out, it’s even cuter in person! I’m pretty excited about them, and if you like the look, you can get a good deal on them! The code “dressingoptimistically” will get you 20% off any order, check them out HERE!
Is that the end?
Alright you guys, that ends my list of favorite accessories right now, what did you think? I could definitely add more with categories like scarves, rings, literally any other piece of jewelry I own, if that’s something you’d be interested in. Let me know in the comments below! Probably one other accessory I’ll mention RN is my nails, which I normally paint myself and am a little obsessive compulsive about, but always make me feel put together and adult-like. They go with everything!
But that’s it for today, thank you for reading all the way to the bottom, let me know what you think and have an awesome day today!
