Phew – where did the last month go? Between all of our traveling, I feel like 4 weeks passed in a blur and here we are in mid July already! I guess the good news is that I can full say that the summer accessories I am sharing with you today have been in full & heavy rotation! All have been perfect for beach to pool to around town and I feel like I have been wearing them so much that the cost per wear on them have already made them a steal for me. So, without further ado – my current favorite go to accessories for staying stylish in the heat of summer:

Sancho Hat

This and the following hat were both requested gifts for my birthday in June – you know, when you send your husband the links to what you want and say, ” hey babe, it would be great if the kids picked something from these items to get me”. Yeah, I am totally guilty of doing that A LOT. But I digress…

I picked this hat thinking it would be perfect for day to day to block the sun and look cute at the same time – big enough to provide coverage but not so big that I couldn’t wear it with everyday clothes and look ridiculous. It’s been super versatile and is cute with literally everything I try it with so I’m feeling like that is a win.

Azteca Hat

This hat I did purchase thinking I wanted something totally huge and obnoxiously fun for the pool – and I LOVE it. I thought that given it’s crazy hugeness I wouldn’t wear it out and about but while we were in Spain I felt the urge and now I will wear it whenever as well. I love the banding detail and the little pop of pink. Sure, that limits a bit on what all you can wear it with but my wardrobe lends to pops of pink well, so it works for me. And like I said, it’s super giant so my dermatologist fully approves and it accomplishes my goal of trying hard to be better to my skin.

Espacio Pop Up Bracelets

Y’all, I may have a full on obsession. If you are local to me, there is a very good chance you have seen these bracelets on the wrists of many friends and wondered where they found them. Well, a sweet friend of mine from my church is part of the team that makes them and she can attest that my addiction is real. I have been sporting a different combo daily and love how well they mix and match. They only sell them periodically at both online and local pop ups, so be sure to follow their Instagram to be on alert for the next pop-up. I promise you will love them.

Plus the beads (the non wooden ones) are a good rubbery material that I have been wearing in the pool without any issue.

Always a bonus when you can look cute poolside while wrangling kids. I mean, really, between a good hat & a cute beaded stack, I feel like I can be literally juggling my littles at the pool and still look like I’ve got it all together…

What about you? Any favorite summer accessories I just need to check out??
