Accessorizing with a Summer Hat

If there’s one thing I’ve figured out ,while writing this blog, it’s that I don’t wear enough hats. Hats are an accessory a lot of us might not think about when putting together a spring or summer look. Which is kind of funny, because in the early 1900’s it was considered disgraceful to walk outside of your home without a hat and a pair of gloves! Imagine?

Today, there are many different styles of hats. You might have even seen a lot of fashionistas out there wearing the straw panama or fedora hat. Cute, but I’m looking for a hat to wear to the beach this summer. In fact, I’d love to get my hands on a big floppy hat. I saw a few today that I’m considering. I can’t wait to hit the beach! Do you already have your summer hat?


Why Anthropologie?

Anthropologie…why? Why must you have the most beautiful accessories and shoes that I can’t afford? I think you’re purposely trying to torture me.



Need to make a statement?


Do you need to make a fashion statement? Why not grab a statement necklace! Make a boring outfit pop with a piece of jewelry that will wow your friends! I’m a sucker for a necklace that stands out! I love ALL of these! I think it’s time to go shopping!!

Handbag Delight:: Straw & Woven

I am so ready for beach, sun, and fun! FYI…that’s the first thing I think of when I see a straw handbag. Of course, that’s not the only place to carry one of these cute bags. Oh…I really love the three bags below…they’re my fave.


Wish List: Evans

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?

I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!

Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!


Cuff Inspiration

Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration.

Wish List: ASOS

I don’t think this budget thing is working, because now all I want to do is e-window shop. And then I drool over pieces like this from ASOS. Thank you ASOS for making me drool. Thank you very much.

Shoe Fever: Wedges

When spring and summer hit, I can’t wait to pull out my wedge sandals. They go great with practically anything. I would take all of these above! Stupid budgeting. Read more

SSSSSSSnakes…

There’s something about this slinky reptile that makes me want to crawl out of my skin! But, jewelry…I can do. Add a little edge to your outfit and accessorize with snakes. Don’t be afraid! These won’t bite!
