The Appolini Bow Sandal ($210) is incredibly cute and wearable -- wait til you see them in blue!

Yesterday, we took a look at some of my favorite Spring dresses courtesy of Ted Baker -- perfect for everything from Easter and/or Passover to work, special occasions and date night. I would be remiss not to mention of all of the beautiful accessories the brand does too -- which is what this post is all about.

Inside, shoes, bags and accessories worth drooling over...



The Peetch Pointy Toe Pump ($230) is another one of my favorite Ted Baker shoes.
Though the heel is high, it's quite comfortable on! More colors available here and here.


The Peetch in yummy navy! Part of a balancied diet, no?

What I love about Ted Baker's accessories is that they have a fun, whimsical side without feeling too childish. They are women's shoes no doubt but the woman who wears them is clearly light-hearted, carefree and so much fun to be around!

Before we get to actual shoes, I have some recommendations to make these extra comfortable. For high heels I tend to buy a 1/2 size larger than normal and then wear an insole with them. For pumps, I love these massaging gel insoles or these arch supports. Both help me to stay on my feet for hours at a time. For pumps that push my feet forward, causing pain on the balls of my feet, these pads are an absolute life-saver! If you plan to wear them with flats you'll want to use medical tape to make sure they stay in place. And for open-toe sandals, especially heeled ones, these little pads are amazing hidden supports for the balls of my feet. These inexpensive products help my pumps to last longer and my feet to stay healthy.

That shared, here are my thoughts on some of the prettiest Ted Baker shoes right now:
1 | The Barrica Sneakers ($145) have the cutest floral details, and I love the rose gold accents.
2 | The Azeline Bow Pump ($210) comes in four classic colors and has a lovely bow detail for an extra delicate, feminine touch.
3 | There's a similar pump in a peep-toe version too, the Alifair Open Toe Pump ($210).
4 | It would be hard to find a sandal prettier than the Ainda Slingback Bow Sandal ($85). It has tremendous flexibility and good grips on the bottom of the sole.
5 | One pump I did not have good luck with is the Saviy Leather Pump ($215). I found this pump pitches my foot forward to a very uncomfortable degree, such that I can't walk well in them even with padding. It's too bad too, because this patterned version is so pretty.
6 | Luckily, a very similar pattern is available on a pump that's super comfy in the Kawaap Pump ($190). This pump also comes in a bold floral.
7 | If the Barrica sneaker has too much going on, there's a subtler version with the same pretty rose gold accents in the Kulei Lace-Up Sneaker ($145).
8 | I don't really wear oxfords but I may have to make an exception for the beautiful Alelea Oxford ($185).
9 | I picture wearing the Charv Sandal ($190) all Spring and Summer long.
10 | The cute Torr Mules $190) are subtle from the front in taupe, with a scene-stealing rose gold heel.


You'll find plenty of cute jewelry at Ted Baker, like this Galini Pearl Cluster Necklace ($129).


You can match your bag to your dress if you like with all the beautiful prints available.
This Blushing Bouquet Crossbody ($139) is sold out, but this similar one is still in stock!


I was very impressed by the quality, size and look of the Mini Jarvis Leather Backpack ($270),
which of course also comes in pink!

I must warn you, my wishlist is overflowing with Ted Baker bags because so there are so many beautiful styles! From the elegant and chic like the Mini Jarvis Leather Backpack ($270, above) to the patterned and the whimsical, my closet could easily be backed with these beautiful bags.

Here are some of my favorite Ted Baker bags at the moment:
1 | Let's start this list with perhaps the cutest bag of all, the Cat Leather Crossbody Bag ($195). I can't get over how adorable this bag is! I kind of want every color.
2 | One of the brand's most popular bags is the Large Icon - Bow Tote ($59, also in mint, black or pink) and it's easy to see why. The tote is durable, has a zipper pocket inside and sits nicely on the shoulder. It also comes in a printed version sans bow.
3 | A cute bow, a great shape and lots of pockets have me in love with the Leather Crossbody Bag ($195).
4 | Their new gorgeous Spring pattern, Cherry blossom, comes in bag sizes ranging from Faux Leather Crossbody Bag ($139) to Small Satchel ($185) to Large Satchel ($210). Use these bags alone or as a set for things like travel.
5 | Speaking of travel, did you know Ted Baker makes seriously cute luggage? Tell me the Inez Gem Gardens Two-Wheel Travel Bag ($295) isn't the prettiest travel bag you've ever seen? It's incredibly well-made too! This size also comes in Alayaa Cherry Blossom.
6 | For bigger luggage, I'm digging the Large Four-Wheel Suitcase ($498), which also comes in a smaller version.
7 | The Dynamic Butterfly Print 3-Pack Travel Pouch ($75) is a handy set to use inside those suitcases, and...
8 | ...the Luggage Tag & Passport Holder ($38) can finish off your travel set in patterned perfection. Also in pink.
9 | For those times when I carry a small wallet, the Bulldog Karrine Patent Leather Wallet ($150) is a conversation starter.
10 | The Alli iPhone 6 & 6s Folio Case (now $30) is a very handy phone case with a mirror built in.
