Lately I’ve been stocking up on some great dresses and sandals for summer, but haven’t thought twice about loading up on essential accessories. I sometimes tend to forget about the details when shopping, always going for the big-ticket items. This season I am choosing to do things differently. There are a few key items I need to purchase and I thought I share the front runners with you!
Sleek Watches // I have a couple of really nice watches by Michele that were given to me by my dad and grandmother in high school and college, but during the summer I am worried about ruining or losing such a nice piece while traveling a ton. There are some really chic watches out there right now that are much cheaper which I’d be much more comfortable traveling with. This black and gold Michael Kors watch is at the top of my list right now. It’s so simple and sleek, don’t you think? I feel like it would actually be a wonderful year-round option too because of the versatile color. Michael Kors really does know how to do watches – I also love his more vibrant options like this gold watch with an orange face (or this turquoise option). Summer vibes all the way. Finally, Michele has created a white jelly-watch option (available with a gold or silver face) that is less expensive and more durable than their gold and silver counterparts. Win, win!
Statement Clutches // While I am lucky to have a pretty solid collection of handbags, I’m really lacking in the clutch department. I don’t know why, but for some reason I have a much harder time spending money on a clutch than I do pulling the trigger on a big bag. Anyone else have that issue? Anyway, I’ve been on the lookout for some fun summer clutches and think I’ve found some contenders. This orange-red acrylic Tory Burch clutch would be a fab addition to my closet this summer to wear with little white dresses, but I also love this iridescent Milly clutch. Both are so bright and happy, right? I’m also a huge fan of Charlotte Olympia’s statement clutches, specifically this handcuffed one. It’s all in the details!
Thick Frames + Reflective Lenses // As far as eyewear goes, I’m really into thick-framed sunglasses and reflective lenses. There’s something about a reflective lens that just screams summer! This pair by BCBG is under $100, but I can’t stop thinking about this pair by Wildfox. They’re a little more subtle. Finally, I have this pair of Prada sunnies in black but the white pair has me desperate for another pair. Is it ridiculous to get the same pair in a different color way? I think no.
