The Accessories You NEED For Summer

We often talk about summery clothes for this time of year (especially when it’s sweltering hot like it was last week) – but what about the accessories?! They seem to have got a little lost on my blog recently so I thought I’d delve into my favourite summer accessories and where you can get the best from. As you can expect, this outfit features a lot of red, a lot of florals, and a poor decision to wear jeans… a life lesson for you all, cloudy doesn’t mean cold.


I think we’re all guilty of owning one pair of sunglasses and sticking to them, but when you see how cheap they are, why not buy a couple of pairs and switch between them?! The pair I’m wearing in this outfit are old from The Mix (and aren’t available anymore, booooo), but I’ve found a similar pair, as shown below, that are only £8.

I also think it’s fun to break away from plain black sunglasses – I know they’re a staple and they go with everything, but tortoiseshell ones are a bit different, and even coloured ones can make your outfit go from basic to BLOODY FAB.


You know, the sandals that are kinda caged and have all those aztec designs on them? LOVE. These come from Miss Pap and they’re totally my jam. Not only do they have the cutest red pom poms on them, they also have little metal gem things which rattle when you walk – some of you may hate this, but I LURV IT! Everyone needs a pair of these this summer, whether it’s for everyday wear or for a festival.


If you look closely, under my beaut top from Miss Pap I’m hiding an adorable black bralet (also from Miss Pap). These are SUCH a summer essential because in all this hot weather I cannot bear to wear a bra. Isn’t it the worst?! I find bralets so much looser and lighter to wear and as long as you’re wearing something loose-ish over the top then you’re allll good.


Have you seen these everywhere at the moment? If not then where have you been?! Zara had one recently that completely sold out and I’m so sad that I didn’t get my hands on it! I have this Zaful one from last year and it’s still going strong, and it’s one of those essential summer beach items that we all need – especially for those days where we need to carry the kitchen sink with us (me always).

    Oh my god I absolutely adore these shoes. And that bag is super cool too – definitely need to invest in a good statement bag for summer too.

    love, kerstin

      I think we all think about clothes the most and forget accessorising sometimes, but they always complete an outfit, even if it’s not jewellery!
