Hi beauties! Happy Saturday!
Now that summer is upon us (although it’s always summer in California) and the weather is heating up, I’m trading my jackets and jeans for a cool, breezy summer style. But, sometimes simple a plain base layer can get #BORING so I like to add some pizazz to it and accessorize!
Of course not everyone can afford a new summer closet with exotic tops and embellished shorts, especially if you’re on a college budget like me, that’s why bags, jewelry, and other accessories like a pretty lipstick allows you to try new trends without spending a fortune. It can also help bring your whole outfit together so you’ll be looking chic and trendy all summer long.
So, what makes a perfect summer accessory anyways? Well, today I’m going to be sharing with you my top three favorite summer accessories, check them out below!
1. Statement Jewelry Pieces
I’m usually not a really big fan of jewelry because I always wear my mini hearted Tiffany & Co. necklace every day! But, ever since summer hit I’ve been trying to incorporate a variety of accessories into my outfits! My two favorite pieces right now are the Then & Now Earrings from Rush by Jessica and the Jojo Pack from Pura Vida Bracelets. I love the Then & Now Earrings because they are so timeless but can really add so much pop to your outfit! They are not too big and heavy to wear at all, so you can be comfortable all summer long wearing these! Dress them up or dress them down it doesn’t really matter because they will look good either way!
As for the Jojo Pack I think these bracelets are PERFECT for a beach day! They are seriously so cute and will add pops of color to your bikini or outfit! Also, can we talk about how cute the gold unicorn is like are you kidding me?! I personally love Pura Vida bracelets because of what the company stands for and I live for all of their beauty, boho designs.

2. Crossbody Bags
I honestly adore crossbody bags because they’re so easy to style and give an instant wow factor to any outfit! They’re definitely my go-to bag for every season of the year.
My all time favorite crossbody bag is from Kate Spade and I am absolutely obsessed with it because it’s super minimalistic, yet girly and chic at the same time! I couldn’t find a link to the exact one that I own but I found a similar one here.
3. The #Perf Summer Lipstick
Last, but certainly not least is lipstick! I personally LOVE lipstick so much and feel like my look is incomplete without it! I usually go for a more nude, mauve colored lippie for my every day look, but lately I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons more and try out different lip colors. Recently, I have been loving Tarte Cosmetics Lippie Lingerie Matte Tint in the shades “Envy” (a mauve berry) and “Undressed” (a deep rosy brown). Both of these colors are subtle, yet they still bring a pop of color to your look! Another reason why I love these lipsticks is because they’re so comfortable to wear and go on smoothly!
