Accessories I'm Here For This Summer

Accessories I'm Here For This Summer

I mentioned on Instagram recently that I particularly enjoy accessories in the summer months. There's just something about warm sunny weather and holidays that makes me want to have a little fun with costume jewellery, colourful bags, sparkly sandals... you name the trend, I am here for it in summer!

This season, there are three different accessories trends that I find myself particularly drawn to. So I thought I would share with you some of my favourite pieces on the high street.

Espadrille Wedges


I've had my espadrille wedges for a couple of years now and they have graced many a blog post and Instagram photo! Feminine and easy to wear, they go with everything from jeans to dresses and are perfect for completing your look in a ladylike way while still being able to walk (bonus!) I also have my eye on the taupe sandal version from Topshop (number 8 in the picture below). They have a chic look about them and I could do with changing things up a little!

Pearl Jewellery


Pearl Earrings

There's something so ladylike about pearls, and I can't get enough of all the pearl jewellery and hair slides I'm seeing on my Instagram feed lately, especially when they're mixed with sea shells! I don't often wear statement earrings, but this pair from H&M are so pretty for summer and such a great, inexpensive way to change up my look. Next on my list is a pearl hair slide... if I can find one that doesn't look ridiculous on my tiny little head!

Straw Bags


Circular straw bag with sea shell embellishment


Is there anything cuter than a straw bag in summer?! They just work so perfectly as beach bags, and look as good paired with floaty maxi dresses as they do with distressed denim shorts. I have recently added a circular bag studded with sea shells to my collection, and I love the look of the River Island clutch (number 6 below) with its sparkly embellishment - it has a definite evening vibe which makes it a little bit different to the typical straw bag.

Straw Bags

1. Fringed (AD), 2. Oversized (AD), 3. Intricate (AD), 4. Beach bag (AD), 5. Shoulder bag (AD), 6. Bejewelled (AD), 7. Sea shells (AD)

  6. Having recently bought myself a pair of wedges, I agree they add that feminine classy look and great to pair with anything too. I'm also seeing a lot of pearl everything around. That is one trend I would be staying away from, I'm not really a dress my hair up with accessories kind of girl. Great choices Kate : ) xo

  18. I don´t think straw bags would survive long between the cat and the kids, but I might pick up some wedge espadrilles. They are less casual than the flat ones.
