Hey guys, I'm Joanna from ModaMama. Maybe you've heard of me, maybe you haven't either way, nice to see you!
Summer is well upon us, and while we're all pulling out our dresses *though to be fair, mine never get put away,* shorts, tanks, and sandals let's not forget those accessories that are essential for the warm summer months. Here are thee mine:
Sunnies! Along with sunscreen they're essential for protecting your eyes. Now, it isn't a surprise to anyone that I put sunglasses as an essential. Yes, it obvious and basic. But the point isn't that they are on here, it's that there are so many styles out there that they're a great way to put your own personality into your outfits just by the type of sunnies you get.
I love big wide Audrey Hepburn/Jackie O sunglasses. They're classic to me, but also provide a wide area of coverage.
Lately however, I've been starting to really get into aviators. I love how tough girl cool they are. It always makes me feel like I'm a fighter pilot in the Top Gun training program. I know, silly. But it's all about how you feel.
Next up is hats. I'm all about sun protection when it comes to the warm rays so these are a must. But what's awesome about the summer months is that I can step out from the thick beanie or fur lined hood and step into a wide assortment of hats.
Fedoras, wide brimmed, bowler, you name it, it's there. Oh and if you're like me and think, "I can't pull off a hat," trust me you can. I used to be dead set against them and now I can't imagine a summer without them.
Finally, the statement necklace. When layers come off it's wonderful, but the layers also provide a great opportunity for mixing and truly making unique outfits. So when they're gone, I've found that a fabulous necklace is a great way to add that ever elusive wow factor to your outfits.
Clearly, I'm in love with the big boho ones.
So that's three essentials I could not survive the summer without. And obviously, I mix and match them all in my various outfits as well. I'd love for you to stop by ModaMama and tell me what your summer essential accessories are.
