5 Summer Accessories I Can't Live Without

When I was a little girl, I loved summer. Hanging out at the swimming pool all day in my Little Mermaid bathing suit, eating fun dips, playing on the playground and riding my bike for hours were just a few of my favorite hobbies. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a summer girl, but now that I'm a grown-up with a full time job, summer has lost some of it's luster. Perhaps it's because I sweat profusely when I go out to lunch and then pray that my organic deodorant holds up for this last meeting of the day. Oh and to all you teachers and people who get to hang out at the pool all day, keep the instagrams coming because they don't make me jealous at all! *that was sarcasm.

My mom saved my Little Mermaid bathing suit for me and I'm so glad she did! I can't wait to put this on my baby girl someday.

I do however have a new goal: to adapt to the heat so I don't cuss every time I walk outside or get into a hot car. So far all that I've done to work toward this goal is force myself outside when I get home from work. Lately, I've been feeling some FOMO because if there's an activity outdoors, my answer is always a resounding "NO" (unless there's a beach or a pool involved). Okay who am I kidding, I go outside after work because I have to walk to my neighbor's yard so I can get the Pokemon.

Also, side note, I've become one of those people who order hot drinks from Starbucks even when it's 100 degrees outside. I never understood those people and now I've become one. I blame turning 30. Next thing I know I'm going to be drinking hot coffee with my pizza. But none of this has anything to do with this blog post.

This blog post is about accessories (insert heart eye emoji).

Now, I don't know if you're like me, but I will find something I love and then proceed to wear it everyday. Because of this, I like to invest in quality things that I really love instead of having a bunch of things that I just like. On the flip-side, love a good bargain so when I get cute earrings at Target, it's a win-win.

Enter, my summer staples..

1. Tory Burch Gold Miller Sandals These shoes are so great because they can be worn with almost anything. I can dress them down and I can also wear them to a nice dinner.

2. Blue Flash Lens Raybans Yes, these were a splurge but I am in love with this trend of bright, mirrored sunglasses so I had to get in on it.

3. Pineapple iPhone Case by Sonix I am obsessed with all things pineapple so when I saw this phone case I knew I had to have it.

4. Blushes and Gold Necklace This rose gold necklace was the most thoughtful gift from a friend. It has the coordinates from our college dorm freshman year where we met! It's also absolutely gorgeous and dainty!

5. Gold Hoop Earrings from Target My style guru, Lyndsie, was wearing these earrings one day and I had to have them!

Here are some of my accessories in action on my thirtieth birthday at a restaurant in Alys beach.

Of course my husband is my ULTIMATE accessory. I'm obsessed with him.
