Summer is here and I am trying to be my cute summery self. Unfortunately, my wardrobe did not get the memo. Even my summer favourites are seeming a bit drab and boring. Instead of buying a whole new wardrobe (who has time of the funds for that), I am picking up a few summer fashion accessories to kick what I have up a notch.
Here are a few of my favourites so far. What have you bought for your summer wardrobe?
One of my favourite ways to brighten up an outfit is with a springy scarf. Calgary weather can feel quite un-summery at times so this is a great way to stay warm while still embracing summer. I love this bright option from Etsy.
I forget to wear jewelry most of the time but earrings are a must. Don’t these pink coral hoops just scream summer?
You likely can’t spend the entire summer at the beach but you can wear a bit of the beach around your neck. I love this pretty silver necklace with an aqua chalcedony and starfish charm. It’s like taking the beach with you every day!
My hair is still short after I cut it all off before we left on our RV adventure. As it grows, though, it has started getting in my eyes when I’m trying to get things done in the yard or out and about. I love the thought of using a pretty bird barrette instead of plain bobby pins.
Or maybe this silver swallow barrette. Or maybe both.
I love bracelets. They can kick any outfit up a notch. I bought quite a few wrap bracelets similar to this one when we were in Thailand. I have worn them all out. Yep, I wore them that much. I find them a go to piece for every day wear. They don’t jangle, they aren’t too dressy. Perfect. Plus they come in a ton of colors. I am a blue girl but I like this pink wrap bracelet too.
Pretty sarongs are one of my favorite fashion items. It can be a scarf! It can be a shirt! It can be a dress! It can be a skirt! It can be a blanket! Having a few great sarongs can make your wardrobe super summer-y and easy to pack. These are a must for any beach vacation!
Are you a hat person? I love hats when I see them at the store but then I put them on and I feel like I look ridiculous. I am buying a new hat for the summer, though, because I have to do a better job at keeping the sun off my face. I love the look of this straw hat and it is foldable!
With so many people just saying no to plastic, it has me rethinking my sunglasses. I love these wooden sunglasses in hot pink. Renewable and a HOT color….that is a yes for me!
I’m not sure you’ve noticed but I LOVE birds. This cute and summery purse can be made with a variety of fabrics and with different pocket configurations. It’s perfect for a day out shopping!
Once the weather stops freezing and the snow melts, I am back into flip flops. Unfortunately, I am prone to getting plantar faciitis so regular, cheap flip flops kill my feet. I still buy the odd cute sandal with a flat sole but mostly I wear Vionic flip flops or sandals. They have saved my feet. Such a huge difference.
