When you’re into fashion, summer really is the perfect time to have fun with your look. You don’t have to worry about wrapping up in layers to keep warm and dry, so no throwing on a big coat and boots with every outfit you put together. Instead, you have far more flexibility/ Plus Summer clothing tends to be more colorful and bold than anything you can find over the autumn and winter, so fantastic for really making a statement. There are certain accessories and trends that have trickled down from the runway and into our favorite stores, if you want to get on board here are a few things to try this summer!

Frasier Sterling Party Like It’s 1999 Silver Choker Necklace

Chokers

Chokers have been on trend for some time now, and aren’t set to go anywhere just yet. While big statement jewelry chokers are popular (and can look fantastic on a night out) when it’s warm in the daytime you could go with something lighter and more comfortable. Even bootlace style tie chokers can bring something to an outfit but won’t feel like it’s weighing you down. Other jewelry trends include asymmetrical earrings– something to try if you’re feeling really brave! And bold pendant necklaces. These are a great way to perk up any plain looking summer outfit.

Eye Catching Belts

Designers such as Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga accessorized their outfits on the runway with old, eye-catching belts- so expect to see similar kinds of styles hitting the stores this summer. Again it’s another easy way to perk up a simple outfit. Denim shorts, a tank top and sandals make a simple summer outfit- a statement belt could really bring it to life. If you keep everything else quite simple and go for one bold piece it brings personality without being overkill.

Oversized Sunglasses

Oversized sunnies continue to stay on trend in 2017- great news since they’re a flattering and easy to wear style giving you instant glamor. Plus larger sunglasses protect the eye area better meaning fewer UV rays to damage the delicate skin around the eyes. Be sure to try on a wide selection of sunglasses to find a pair that really suits your face size and shape. Aviators are a classic and are a style you can wear time and time again if you want something that makes less of a statement.

Knee High Athletic Socks

Knee high socks look super cute, the perfect addition to a pair of shorts. They’re ideal if you’re not too keen on your legs since they covered them up- and they also protect them too if you’re going on hikes or playing sports (or if it gets a bit chillier one day). All in all, they are a fun way to accessorize an outfit and can be practical in some cases too. Some designers have even showcased them with wedges and sandals, but if you’re not quite on board with this trend, you can play it safer with a pair of sneakers.

What trends and accessories are you most excited to try out this summer?

Accessories are important and everyone knows it. A simple outfit of jeans and a t-shirt is instantly jazzed with the addition of certain sparkly accessories or a splash of color. A gorgeous ballgown gets its pop from the accessories that enhance it. Everyone needs accessories in their life, whatever gender or age they are.

Gold Crystal Three Layer Deco Necklace

Accessories cover a lot of different categories, including handbags, jewelry, shoes and scarves. You can really be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing accessories for your outfit. What you choose will vary depending on the outfit and occasion, of course, but accessories will still play an important part of your outfit choices. If there is one thing you will notice about highly fashionable women, it’s that they are not fashionable without the right accessories. The greatest style is in the details and while you can buy fantastic clothes online from here, you can also buy accessories to complement the outfit you have chosen. You can look like you’re a highly fashionable person if you have the right decoration and that is exactly what accessories are for. They decorate your outfit and they also make you feel great. Those earrings you love so much won’t just make your outfit look more sophisticated, they’ll draw attention to the color of your hair, the softness of your eyes. Accessories can change how people see you, right down to the type of shoes you wear on your feet. This makes them powerful.

One thing that is important to remember is that you have to make good choices when you accessorize. The shapes, colors and even the silhouette of the accessories you use will change over time. The accessories that you may have found in the Twenties will differ vastly from those that came in over the Swinging Sixties era. The best thing about the accessories you choose? You don’t have to stick to one era. A flapper’s dress with a beaded drop waist like this one, will always look amazing with long beaded necklaces in silver and jet. These aren’t just limited to the 1920s era, as long beaded necklaces pop in and out of fashion. The colours of 2017, for example, are bright yellows, fuchsia and tropical green. These may look a fright on a pair of trousers or a jacket, but emerald necklaces or chunky yellow and pink bangles would look far more fashionable without making your outfit too loud. Taking the time to go for a shopping trip and investing some money into funky, updated accessories isn’t just fun – it’s trendy and in season.

Straw Pom Pom & Tassel Tote

The handbag you choose has to be practical for what you need it for, but you also need to make sure that it goes with what you’re wearing. A bag isn’t just something to hold your purse and phone, it’s going to complete your overall look. You should ensure that you have more than one handbag in the wardrobe. A classic black bag like this is perfect for the office during the week, but you should definitely have something more fun and bright for the weekend. Don’t just settle for one handbag, either. Have a small clutch to match those formal dresses lurking in the back of the wardrobe for weddings. You could even have a different, chic clutch bag to make a simple jeans and plain white tee look fabulous.

The Things I’ve Seed Flat

Shoes are absolutely necessary for your wardrobe. Sneakers for the gym and for outdoor running. Ballet flats for casual outfits. Pumps for your work wardrobe and skyscraper Louboutin’s to make those skinny jeans look endless. The shoes you wear don’t just change up your outfit, they can make you feel fantastic. The confidence that comes with knowing your outfit looks amazing and you feel great wearing those brand-new heels is something that isn’t usually replicated elsewhere. The best thing about shoes, is that you can find the with studs, zips, buttons, laces and even jewels. They’re so versatile that accessorizing your outfit with gorgeous shoes is just an essential!

Faux Pearl Embellished Pinstriped Twilly Scarf

It’s the wintertime that sees the scarves, hats and gloves come out for most people. But scarves are never out of season and they’re for everyone. Jazzing up your outfit with a scarf from Hermes, like this one, is one way to make a simple casual outfit look far more chic. Loop the scarf through the belt holes on your jeans, or tie around the neck, or for something truly different, transform your scarf into a funky bracelet. Check out these ways you can wear scarves to make your whole outfit look different.

Gemstone Embellished Star And Moon Shaped Earrings

The best accessory for your outfits will always be jewelry. You don’t have to buy into 9-carat gold rings and earrings, especially when some of the most beautiful accessory pieces are costume jewelry pieces. Chunky, statement necklaces and charm bracelets that can be color matched to your outfit are very in right now. You can make an outfit look particularly classy with fine jewelry like pearls or delicate silver earrings, but never dismiss costume jewelry.

All in all, your whole outfit and demeanor can depend on the accessories that you choose. Dressing up a work outfit will be different from a casual outfit, but you can easily make it work. You may need a few shopping trips to make your accessories vary by color and outfit, but no one is going to turn the opportunity to shop down, are they?

After a successful Lent of no shopping, I broke it spending entirely too much all at once. To be honest, I think I was feeling better when I couldn’t shop, so I may come up with some kind of deal with myself where I only can shop every other month or something. Not to say I got anything too ridiculous, just that I don’t really need anything at all! From my April wish list, I ended up with the Cupshe Melodic Blues One-piece Swimsuit, the Betseyville Naveah Gladiator Sandals, and the Pintucked Swing Blouse (thanks Mama for the last one!).

  1. I personally think it would be pretty rad to have a driver… and somewhere sunny (read: beachy) to go. Until then I’ll settle for this WildFox Couture Take Me Somewhere tee.
  2. I live in my black quilted Steve Madden slides, and the insoles are starting to come out with my foot every time I take them off. It may be time to upgrade to the Empire. Note: these sold out before this post got a chance to go live, these are similar though.
  3. Old Navy strikes again: I’m loving the Laser-Dot Multi-Tassel Tote for Women.
  4. I’m so into fruit-themed everything for summer and this Watermelon Slice Glitter Keychain is just a cute little something that caught my eye.
  5. Still on the hunt for a utility jacket with attitude and I found this INC International Concepts Linen Embellished Utility Jacket.
  6. Ummmm did you know that Katy Perry has a shoe line? Because she does and her Katy Perry Geli Novelty Beach Sandals are ADORABLE!
  7. I have been wearing my gold Coach loafers (a fab TJ Maxx find) about into the ground. I would love a similar style in pink. Enter the Ralph Lauren Belen Leather Loafer.
  8. …would also love a red like the Cole Haan Pinch Weekender Leather Loafers.
  9. I’ve seen some ADORABLE camo t shirt dresses on Instagram recently. Love this swingy z supply Camo Shirt Dress.
  10. I’m a big fan of totes, fun patterns, and monograms. All those come together in the Printed Crab & Cleek Boat Tote. If I had to choose, it would be the ginger jar pattern shown, but I also love the surf woody and the striped shirt!
  11. Colors + tassels scream summer to me and these Long Rainbow Tassel Earrings are perfection.
  12. Even though most brides I’ve asked said I absolutely do not need a wedding purse, I still love this rose gold bag.
  13. The Victoria Beckham collection was long-awaited at Target. The Black Calla Lily Satin Ruffle Hem Dress is by far my favorite piece!
  14. The open-shoulder style is a little tricky on me, but I can’t help but love the patter on this Entro Cowgirl Patch Dress.

What are you craving for May?

It’s kind of funny, as I was thinking about writing this post I got a text from Roxanne, who is Jewish, asking if I grew up shopping for Easter dresses, since this is obviously not something she’s experienced. And WOW that takes me back- shopping for Easter dresses used to be such. a. big. deal. And for whatever reason (maybe it was just cute) Candace and I had to agree on dresses so we would match. For many years, there was a little hat involved in the situation too. We would go out to Tyson’s Corner or Montgomery Mall (usually not Lakeforest- BLECH!) and hit up all the department stores and it was always, at least from what I remember, a fun girls’ day with Mama D.

Now that I’m older, there isn’t such fanfare around the actual shopping for the dresses, but I always dress up extra nice for Easter, usually in something I get for my birthday. Since Rox asked, this year I’m wearing the Camilla Shirtdress from Cabi- probably with nude mules and a cardigan.

Sidebar: I actually always dress up for church in general. I know it’s more important that you be there at all, but I will never be there in jeans. No sir no how.

Anyway, I guess I’m just saying that it’s fun to dress up for what’s really the most important holiday (at least to me) in the Christian church. But that’s not to say you have to break the bank doing it. I tend to have a lot of luck at Charming Charlie, and as I’m actually home in the ‘burbs this weekend and doing some shopping with Mama, I might take a little looky-loo.

If you’re not familar, Charming Charlie is also a one-stop shop. Think Forever 21 prices, slightly better quality, and organized by color. That’s right. COLOR. So you can run in and find your coordinating pieces ASAP. Since you have barely a week to figure out your Easter outfit situation, this could be helpful. And no, this post wasn’t sponsored, I just love how their stores are set up, the price point, and the endless collection of their cute little pieces to complete an outfit. This is just one outfit I’ve put together, but the options are infinite!

Medallion Lace Fit & Flare Dress||Karli Wedge Sandals||Diamond Confetti Ruana||Lemon Dot Bar Clutch||Color Garden Statement Necklace||Bryndis Earring Set

Don’t forget that you can earn cash back from Charming Charlie when shopping through ebates!

One of my favorite trends to come out this spring has been statement earrings, and I know I’m not the only one! (Um hi BaubleBar, can we get these back in stock please?) I think I like the idea so much because statement earrings are such a good way to show your personality, even if you have a strict dress code. And this might sound totally weird, but to me they’re like a less inyourface version of the pompom sandal that it seemed like only bloggers were wearing last year. Does that make any sense?

I remember when I first got my ears pierced. I was in 9th grade and I fiddled with the studs so much that they actually popped out, got infected, and I had to have them re-pierced. When I could finally get to the point that I could safely change out of my sparkly safety studs, I was ecstatic. Even then, I was all about that statement earring life. I ended up getting two holes in each ear, and every outfit went with specific earrings. My favorite pair was from either Claire’s or Hot Topic. One was a guitar pick and the other a guitar because I was so ~*edgy*~. Now it’s kind of totally a thing to have mismatched ears!

The past couple years, I haven’t been great about wearing earrings at all. Just like everything else about me, my ears are super sensitive. If I remember, I put in either simple posts or easy Kendra Scott dangles, but some of the awesome statement earrings I’ve seen recently may have me going back to my old ways!
