Summer Favorites | Accessories

If I'm being completely honest with you, I'd have to say I like shopping for accessories (including makeup) way more than clothes - maybe it's because with accessories I never worry about sizes - I'm happiest shopping for a new makeup palette, purses or earrings. I wanted to share a few of my favorite summer accessories - especially since there are so many epic sales happening right now, well know the ones! 

Mirrored sunglasses are my favorite, especially if they come in a fun color like pink!  
If you would have asked me last year if I thought I'd wear a backpack again, the answer would have been no, but I'm coming around to liking the idea for travel and being hands free - I don't think I'll be comfortable enough to sport one in my everyday life, but certain occasions call for backpacks! The ones with top handles are a great compromise because you can hold them like a purse! On that same note, I have also been reaching for a lot less on the weekends - phone, lip gloss, a few cards and that's it, but I don't have anything that fit's that in between - these wristlets would be great for those quick trips to Target! 
My pom pom bag charm adorned my purse in the fall and winter & I feel like my summer bags are missing this little accessory
Remember when I mentioned my go-to outfit, well that look is not complete without a thin belt! Put a bow on it and I'm even happier. 
I talked about my love for a good manicure on many occasions and my recent discovery is the Essie Gel Couture line - forget sitting under the light to have the polish set. It's not an instant dry, but it does live up to the no chip for at least one week and on my nails that is a miracle. I got the pretty rock the runway color, but I want a lighter pink for most other occasions. It's pricier than other polishes, but if you buy the polish and then get a manicure, you'll be chip free for weeks! 
While I may have said this post was all about accessories - I had to sneak in these super cute graphic items from Private Party - I mean the "barre so hard" and "all i need is pizza and bae" shirts are too funny! 
Love a fun pair of tassel earrings as much as the next girl and these aren't heavy either!
A not too high, not too uncomfortable pair of wedge espadrille sandals that pairs with skinny jeans or dresses never disappoints. I have the black and cream pairs of the damita wedges and they are my go-to's! 
What's your favorite summer accessory?

  1. I have that exact Pom Pom charm on a straw tote and it's adorable and I have those espadrilles in black. I think I need another color as they are the perfect summer wedge. And bright pink nail polish....A MUST!!! So fun!

  4. The bow belt is so adorable. I have one that I try to style with different dresses and those MK wedges have been on my wishlist for so long but still yet to pull the trigger. Mirrored sunglasses are so fun. I have a purple pair and get lot =s of compliments from people...the pink ones are so pretty!

  5. I've been wanting to try the new Essie gel line and was even more curious after you mentioned having your nails done on Snap! Good to know it lasted the week, that would be a miracle for me too! I will have to give it a try, although, I do love the fast drying aspect of Defy & Inspire and CND!

  6. Accessories are always so fun because they always fit :) And they can really make an outfit! I love all of your picks!!! Those shoes have been on my wishlist forever. Unfortunately my arch in my foot is too high to zip them properly. Boo!!! I am obsessed with Kate Spade stuff and I have way too many nail polishes to count. WAY TOO MANY!

  12. I'm all about accessories too! I love how they dress up any outfit, and can be worn daily whereas clothing pieces are worn once in a while. Those MK wedges are one of my favorite purchases this year, and you can't go wrong with a KS bow bangle <3

  22. I totally agree that buying accessories can be way more fun than shopping for clothes, mostly because you never have to worry about fat days haha! And I'll definitely have to check out the Essie gel color line. Essie is definitely my favorite at-home nail polish brand!

  27. I'm coming around too backpacks too! I think they'd be easier to use as a diaper bag, especially when we're shopping or going to food/wine festivals.

  28. I don't think I can get behind the backpack trend... It's practical, but I would totally overfill it!! xo!

  58. I'm 100% with you about shopping more for accessories and makeup instead of clothes because I don't have to worry about a size. No matter what size I am, Kendra Scott always fits! Those pink sunglasses are so cute! I got a pair of blue mirrored ray bans, but maybe I can convince Chris that I need a pair of pink ones too!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yep, me too! Love it. Love your picks!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I absolutely LOVE the earrings (you have gorgeous long hair and I bet they look great!) but they would look good on those with short hair (like me!) too! LOVE the pink sunglasses, I am super into mirrored sunglasses too.....I have so many pairs of sunglasses and readers, I am always looking for unusual ones. catchatwithcarenandcody

  69. those wedges are gorgeous! they aren't too badly priced either... i am with you on buying accessories and such, i never worry about them like i do clothes with sizing. i'll have to check out essie's gel line, essie's normal line and i don't get along very well but maybe the gel stuff will stay longer.
