Now I love me some accessories, I am a hat hoarder after all, but there are some gaping holes in my spring & summer accessories wardrobe! There are just a few items I have yet to come across in my shopping adventures that I am making a point to add to my wardrobe for the warmer months of the year. I thought today I'd share my list with you all!
1) Straw Handbag

I can't believe I don't have a single summery handbag! Be it wicker, straw, raffia or raffia, I am after a purse to wear with my spring florals and summery cotton dresses. The classic natural colored wicker and brown leather handbag above is a perfect example of the style I am after. I love it when vintage handbags have those little studs on the bottom to keep them off of surfaces too, it's such a nice detail! I only fear with the variety out there I may not be able to stop at just one :)
2) Vintage Style Sandals

Then there is the footwear conundrum, as being on the average or shorter side I love my high heels all year round. I also have larger feet (size 10! uhg why) so I prefer heels as I feel like they make my feet look smaller. When summer rolls around I simply can't function without some comfortable sandals though! I'd like a more vintage styled pair and I like this great ivory option from Chelsea Crew available at Trashy Diva. Perfect with any summer dress right?
3) High Heeled Sandals
|The Veronica from Remix Shoes|
But heels! Oh how I love them, and I could use a red pair for summer! These lovely leather platforms from Remix are calling to me, though silly me I forgot to try on this style when I visited the store in LA! I love this style in black suede too, but I really don't need another pair of black shoes. Red is such a perfect color for summer accessories as it goes with everything from fun brights to soft pastels!
4) Scarves to Wear in the Hair
|Silk Scarf available on Etsy|
In addition to my beloved straw hats I'd like to start wearing more scarves, and what better time than the warmer months to just throw my hair hair up in a scarf and call it done! I have a zillion scarves, but most are very busy and colorful and I'd like some classic bandanna and solid colored options. Since so much of my clothing is prints, I think solid scarves would be useful to have. Then there are fun simpler patterns like classic polka dots!
5) A Pretty Parasol

To be honest, I mostly just want to know what your spring and summer essentials are! Do let me know in the comments as this shopaholic always loves adding things to her list ;)
