Summer Accessory Staples
So it is that time of year again…summer. It is one of my favourite seasons, where you can wear fabulous fashions and enjoy the sun, with out the need of a coat or boots! Don’t get me wrong though, I do love my boots.
During this time of year I have some favourite accessory staples that I rely on to help me enjoy the weather while looking truly stylish with little effort in this amazingly hot and sunny weather. Here are a few of my absolute favourite obsessions:
- These incredibly comfortable leather flip flops from tkees foundations collection, are my go to footwear. They can be dressed up or down since the leather makes it a little more stylish than rubber ones. I wear mine almost every day, the buttery soft leather and the memory foam cushioning make them so comfortable. The foundations collection comes in a range of colours so you are guaranteed to find one that matches your skin tone, and as all stylists know, nude shoes including flats truly elongate your legs! Always a great way to dress!!
I am a true believer that everyone just looks that little bit sexier in a classic gold frame aviator. My go to pair is the classic ones by Ray-Ban. They truly seem to suit everyone, and there is something to be said for a style and a brand that have been around for years! I also am a fan of wire framed sunglasses in the summer as when it is really hot, the plastic ones seem to slide around on your face way too much.
- There is something about feathers that truly speak summer to me! I love this feather ring by Elizabeth and James, but there are tons of feather jewelry out there. I love to mix my silver and gold as I feel the combination can really set of a tan, be it real or the health faux from a bottle! I got this amazing one from Shopbop.
- I love having my hands free when I am out and about, and the cross body bag is my true go to, I can run my errands and not worry about my purse slipping down my shoulder. This Marc by Marc Jacobs one is my favourite. I love the nod to the traditional swallow tattoos and the multiple pockets. Definitely keeps me organized and no more lost keys in the depths of my bag! The leather and the gold make it great for summer, but you can truly use this all year round.
The Eco Tote! With the 5¢ charge for plastic bags, a true style setter needs to have a great eco-tote on hand. This one by Jenny Bird is my favourite as it give money to Haiti, and it has a fabulous design that will be sure to get attention. I have also used mine as a great beach tote! There is something to be said for great style that is also functional and environmental!
Well those are my 5 fave summer accessory staples that I use as my go to pieces for everyday!
