I have been really enjoying three of my favorite summer essentials these past few days!
It has been quite hot here and having a light summer bag to toss everything in has been great! This tote is easy to wipe clean, but the fact that it has a chic handle and flap made of gorgeous caramel leather, seems to elevate it from a beach tote to a respectable handbag. This is my second Longchamp tote (the last one was navy) and I really like how the bag wears as the seasons pass. The black and caramel colors of the bag look great with everything in my closet!
I try to remember to put on my sunglasses every time I step outside and these are the nicest pair I have ever had. It seems that I am more sensitive to bright sunlight as I get older. I really like how these sunnies look... I put them on and feel a little glamorous!
When I saw these flip flops in Marshalls, I was excited! They are made by Born (such comfortable shoes!) and look great with just about everything from a simple skirt and tee to my more dressy clothes. Though I have always admired shoes with flowers and other embellishments, I was always hesitant. I did want to draw too much attention to my large feet and I also didn't want to tire of the style quickly (especially if they are a more expensive shoe!). I do not have to worry about either of those things with these flip flops! They are a perfect color (almost a neural) and make me feel summery and elegant.
What are your summer essentials this year?
