summer accessories

It's that time of year again when you start to think about what summer accessories will be making it into your life. I love buying new sunglasses so they're always high up on the list. While I like all of the above choices, I'm desperate for a pair of half-frames that are everywhere at the moment i.e. top left, top right and third one down at the left. The tortoiseshell shell effect suits these frames so well, so that'll be my ideal looking pair if they look good on. However, I'm also up for finding some patterned sunnies like the leopard print or gingham pairs. Oh, and I'll probably be purchasing a chain for my sunglasses because it's such a pain tucking them into your top - I'm thinking it will look pretty cute.

My other priority this year is a good ol' summer hat. Every year I say I'm going to get a hat but I never do thanks to my large head. I fear that nothing suits me so I've decided to steer clear from the typical cowboy-esque shape because they clearly don't work for me. I'll definitely have to shop around but I'm thinking either boater or floppy. I love the look of the floppy straw hat with the black band around it.

Sandals are another matter altogether and I can't wait to shop for some new ones. You just need a new pair every year, don't you? And what are your summer essentials too?

  23. Love the items you've selected! I think sunnies and sandals are essentials for the warmer weather! I'm like you Rosie- I love the look of hats on other people but I haven't yet found one that I like on myself, so that's my current shopping task! :)
