Memorial Day weekend is the official start to summer. Warmer weather means less clothing, and less clothing means more room for accessorizing. Here are my top five summer accessory must-haves:
Much like the weather, the nightlife heats up during the summer months too. For a night out, every girl needs a good costume ring. For a little extra sparkle, I love my Michael Kors barrel ring.
You all know how I feel about my wrist candy. Summer is perfect time to add funky colors to the mix. I got these coral whisper bracelets as a gift from a girlfriend in Louisville and they’re a perfect addition to my gold watch and bangle.
Bright colors come out in the warmer months and an easy way to add color to any outfit is with the perfect summer handbag. My bright blue tote is my favorite summer bag. (My parents gave me this bag as a get-well gift after surgery. Pic is of my mom when she gave it to me)
A trend introducing itself to the warmer months this year is the printed scarf. I love a good scarf for the fall, but I’m excited to be able rock a printed scarf with a fitted tank and colored bottoms. I’ve had my eye on this animal printed Zara scarf for a while now.
Chunky necklaces are a great way to dress up a simple shirt, tank, sundress or swimsuit. I’m big into statement necklaces, and have found many ways to incorporate this Francesca’s find into my summer wardrobe.
My plus one? You can’t enjoy the sunshine without the perfect pair of shades.
