Put a Ring On It


Summertime Accessories


I live in Santa Cruz, Calif., a town that has summer weather almost all year long. But the one thing we don't have much of is summertime fashion. Beach-goers cruise around in lazy flip flops, athletic shorts, boring T-shirts and zero attention paid to making a statement when the weather hits an all time excellent high. But it doesn't have to be that way. All that our denizens need to do is pay a little bit of attention to their accessories, and a simple summer outfit can be a stand out. Take this above shirt from Anthropologie. The vibrant orange hue is perfect for making a splash. Pair it with a skirt, shorts, or even rolled up jeans, and a pair of nude flats, like this pair from Zara. Then, accessorize by tapping into the fantastic jewelry options on Etsy. The two necklaces above are from Homako who has an entire shop of gorgeous pieces that can dress up any casual outfit. Likewise, the gold wire flower ring, also found on Etsy, is a simple choice that taps into the floral trends going on right now. And finally, finish up your accessorizing with this mint clutch from Baggu.
