You’ve already got your summer basics down – swimsuit, sunscreen, and sunglasses to spend hours by the pool. One of the best parts about this hot season is its refreshing minimalist vibe. Denim shorts over bikinis, sun-dried natural waves, less makeup. But adding a little extra sparkle or a new bag to your ‘fit will totally complete you look! Here are some cute and practical summertime accessories to get you from the pool to happy hour, available in the North Dallas Corridor.
Don’t spend too much money on earrings that could get lost in the beach; instead, stock up on colorful, fun, and inexpensive earrings. I love these fish-shaped earrings by SUGARFIX by BaubleBar in Target ($14.99), as they are colorful, dangly earrings made with faux jewels. SUGARFIX by BaubleBar also makes delicious-looking watermelon studs ($12.99), complete with red, white, and green colors to make it look like a slice and realistic black seeds. Francesca’s also has many pretty options, like these lavender beaded drop earrings ($10), that will go with any top in your closet.
For a quick, easy style change, just add a few simple hair accessories to your locks. When the sun is just too hot and you want to put up your hair, go with this patriotic scrunchie set from Francesca’s ($10). It comes with red, white-and-black striped, and blue scrunchies, complete with a cute bow at the end. These are especially great for the Fourth of July! Another must-have are these amazing neon clips ($10), which come with a cool purple-and-pink ombre, yellow-and-orange ombre, peach, and green-and-blue ombre. Pin your bangs back or wear these all together on the back of your head for a cute half-up style.
Functional and Fun Bags
How are you going to carry everything you need, from lipgloss to your cell phone? Why, a new bag, of course! I am obsessed with the Senreve convertible backpack for $574 from Neiman Marcus. It is made with a soft pebbled calf leather in soft pink, and can convert to a satchel bag if you need it. Or, bring your essentials everywhere in a cute fanny pack! I love this Ganni bag made from recycled tech fabric ($138). Adjust the strap to carry around your waist or on your shoulder and show off the pretty red floral design.
