Currently Coveting {Tortoiseshell}

If there's one trend I can't get enough of this season, it's the resurgence of tortoiseshell accessories for your closet and your home. My friend Alex sent me a picture of gorgeous tortoiseshell bowls at C. Wonder (if you're in NYC and haven't been, you must!) and I'm thinking they'd be the perfect complement to a few of these...

{1} House of Harlow 1960 sunglasses, $125 (I love the gold border on these!)
{5} Michael Kors bracelet, $95 (This is my personal favorite!) 

Which piece is your favorite? Do you have any beloved tortoiseshell items?

Definitely love tortoiseshell in all forms. I was so tempted to get that version of the MK watch but went with horn instead! Loving the lulu frost bracelet, and I'll always love tortoiseshell for sunglasses.

Why yes I do! I LOVE my everyday eyeglasses from Warby Parker. Also, I'm jonesing for the tortoise print iPhone cover from goincase.com (and the iPhone to go in it).

I have that exact watch. I love it unconditionally! I also have a pair of tortoise shell Dior sunnies. Together, they are the perfect timeless accessories.

After our coffee date I hit up some shops with my sister and found some really cute tortoise shell rings -- I hinted they would make a lovely Christmas gift, fingers crossed!

Oh I love tortoise shell - the ring and the cuff are my favourites but honestly, I'd be perfectly happy with any of it! I've been looking for some tortoise shell tumblers for my bar cart - no luck yet in the UK but I'm keeping an eye out :) x
