Summer Must Haves
May 20, 2016
Today I'm sharing with y'all some trends that are in full force this season, and are on my wish list and should definitely be on yours as well! I have also listed pieces falling into every price range below too!
OVERALLS: H&M bib overall shorts (less than $20!) | PURSE: San Diego Hat woven straw tote | EARRINGS: Baublebar 'Pinata' tassel earrings | BRACELETS: Sashi marina bracelet set | NECKLACE: Kendra Scott 'Layden' pendant necklace | TOP: Topshop poplin bardot top | KIMONO: H&M kimono | HAT: BP. oversized packable straw hat
STRAW BAGS: There's nothing quite as vacation chic as a straw bag to tote around. Whether it's a straw beach bag or a cute little clutch to go along with your going out outfit, you can't go wrong with this neutral and season appropriate piece! This one is so simple yet beautiful, and it's less than $20! Also, this one with tassels is too cute to pass up!
STATEMENT EARRINGS: A couple summers ago statement necklaces were all the rage, but now earrings have taken center stage. Big and colorful earrings have become the centerpieces of many outfits this season, and are the perfect way to add some color and excitement to an outfit! These hot pink tassel earrings have stolen my heart and are less than $15!
COLORFUL BRACELETS: Along with colorful earrings, bright, layered bracelets are also a super fun accessory this summer. Layer several colorful beaded and tassel bracelets to create the perfect arm candy this season!
KENDRA SCOTT SUMMER COLLECTION: I have always been a huge Kendra Scott fan, but her latest collection is so gorgeous and classic. Her collections never cease to amaze me, but this season's may be my favorite so far! If you want to try out and wear the pieces without buying them, Rocksbox has many of her new pieces available for loan! Just use the code "autumnmerraexoxo" for a free month!
OFF THE SHOULDER TOPS: It seems like all retailers are selling this summer is off the shoulder tops, so say goodbye to strap tan lines and start showing off your shoulders. I love how feminine and versatile these tops are. They would look great with white pants, denim shorts or even maxi skirts; the options are endless!
KIMONOS: Kimonos make the perfect coverup for beach or pool days or a great layering piece for the hotter months. I love how whimsical the sheer fabric and once again, the diversity of the piece! I am in love with this blue floral and this pink floral one, and they're both less than $20!
SUN HATS: This may be my favorite trend of all. I feel like I belong in a southern movie whenever I put one on. They're so feminine and fun, and I cannot wait to wear them on vacation this summer. Soon I will also have a post featuring one, so check back for that!
