Attractive earrings ~
These little owl dangle earrings are just too cute. Owls were/are super trendy but I like them even if the trend passes! I got these from Gordmans.
I've had these so long I can't quite recall where I bought them. I think it was at Icing. Heart-shaped, faux-pearl covered studs add a soft, feminine touch to an outfit.
Fun and functional purses ~
I wrote "purses" but I really haven't even been taking the time to change up my purse lately. This has been by my side all summer and is serving me well. It has a short, single over-the-shoulder strap which is my preference (the handle(s) needs to be long enough to throw over my shoulder because I don't like having to carry a purse in my hands). This purse has three-layered ruffles on its front with a floral fabric that has hints of a sparkly thread. It has a few small pockets but it is mostly open and roomy inside. I bought this purse from Kohls.
I have several bracelets. Or, at least I had several bracelets before my two year old daughter ran off with half of them. She LOVES bracelets. She also loves earrings too but we're waiting a while on that one! I got this bracelet from Aeropostle. This is my favorite bracelet because it's cute and casual and goes well with most of what I wear. It fits snug which I think is a good thing because that means it isn't in the way when I'm doing housework.
Fancy foot attire ~
I really like shoes and consider them to be another of my favorite accessories. Cute shoes don't have to hurt your feet (but then again, I usually switch to tennis shoes - not so cute - if I'm walking for long distances). I got these on a clearance rack in the late-fall at Gordmans and just packed them right away for later. The next spring, I was able to pull out brand new shoes as I switched my wardrobe over but for far cheaper than the new sandals hitting the stores!
These are my favorite pair of sandals right now. I picked these up at Kohls. I like that they go with most of my outfits. They are sturdy and comfortable. And, I love the braided detail.
These cute shoes were a birthday gift a few years back. They are comfortable and the cute bead work adds a nice touch to several outfits.
Other ideas ~
There are, of course, many other ideas for summer accessories such as necklaces, headbands, sunglasses, hair clips, light-weight scarves, rings, toe rings (I actually wear one of these but didn't get a picture of it), and hats. Use your personal style and unique creativity to add new flare to your summer clothing by simply adding the perfect finishing touches to your outfit with pops of color and textured accessories.
What is your favorite accessory?
