Accessories Council Mother's Day Gift Picks 2014

Mother's Day is quickly approaching on Sunday, May 11th, and I've got some affordable gift ideas to share! A few weeks ago, Accessories Council President, Karen Giberson and fashion and lifestyle expert, Pamela Pekerman hosted an event at BLT Fish, presenting the Accessories Council's favorite gifts and fashion items for Mother's Day! Here's a look at my favorite accessories from the event.

I rarely come across layered necklaces that are detachable but the chunky, nautical-inspired Lia Sophia Wayfarer Necklace ($168) is! You can wear them all together or separately, so it's a really versatile piece that can be worn 7 different ways. I can just picture this necklace being worn with a t-shirt, jeans and blazer. 

The Pico Design Laser Cut Heart Pendant ($65) is Pico's architectural interpretation of the classic heart, made of cherry wood. It's unique, lightweight and easy to wear and can be layered with other pieces. 

The Roman & Sunstone Preppy Pearl Faceted Marquise Cabochon Statement Necklace ($36) with pearls and blue and green accents is great for dressing up your look. 

With Trollbeads, you can customize your own bangle ($133) by size and add beads (starting at $28) and silver stoppers ($20 each), like the Black Flower Mosaic Bangle ($216), which features the silver bangle, two sterling silver stoppers and a Black Flower Mosaic glass bead. X by Trollbeads allows you mix classic silver, warm bronze and cool Rubber X links to create an unexpected and personal bracelet - with a twist. You can also shop designer pieces, like the Flow Bracelet ($234) by Trollbeads Designer Søren Nielsen.

The olivia + joy Lillie Wristlet ($58) is one of my favorite gift ideas, because it's so versatile. You can throw this wristlet in your tote and head to the office and use it on it's own in the evening as a chic day-to-night accessory. I love the removable woven chain strap and all the compartments including card and bill slots, coin pockets and checkbook slot. The removable zipper pouch is so functional for taking with you on-the-go, especially for those mid-day coffee breaks! 

The Classic by Stella & Dot ($98) is the perfect everyday tote for busy moms on-the-go. It's detailed with a bottle pocket and plenty of pace for your mini iPad, snacks, beauty items. 

The Isaac Mizrahi Faye Tote ($298), available at Lord & Taylor stores, is a chic, leather colorblock go-to bag for the office, with size zipper details that allow you to increase or decrease the width. 

The Stella & Max "All I Need Clutch" ($48) is perfect for keeping yourself organized with credit card pockets and bill pocket and interior labels - "Coupons", "Cash" and "Receipts". It's a super chic clutch to carry around, available in bold colors and gold-tone hardware. 

You'll never have to worry about losing your keys again with the Adrienne Landau Fox Key Chain ($25). This fox key chain comes in a bold array of colors, making it easy to spot in your bag. 

The Minnie Rose Cotton Fringe Ruana ($128) is a great lightweight travel piece for when you need that extra layer. 

The SummerSkin Endless Summer Scarf ($49) is a versatile accessory that has built-in sun protection. It can be worn as an infinity scarf, shoulder wrap, instant hood and skirt.  It's small and light enough to throw in your bag or easy to pack in your suitcase or weekend travel bag.
