Summer Accessory Favourites

It’s not that long ago since I filmed my favourite accessories video and look, here I am, back with a whole armful of shiny new fashion favourites. Fickle consumer? Moi?
Anyhoo, along with the sunshine, here’s what’s been putting a big ol’ summery smile on my face.

It’s not one for the office, but my big crochet floppy hat has been brilliant for lazy, sunny afternoon amblings – not to mention being a holiday must-have for lounging beach or pool-side.  

It looks great with a simple sundress and sandals (check out myfavourites) and it’s wallet-friendly, too – it’s just €5 from Penneys.  My big straw bucket bag, €10, is another Penneys find; the playful polka dot bow gives it quite a jaunty, retro feel.

This smokey, beaded Gitane necklace, €69 from Stella & Dot, is the perfect warm weather piece – jewellery can be annoying in the sun, but this is very lightweight and can be worn in a number of ways; the tassel is removable and the chain can be worn long or doubled/tripled over. 

A present from the brand to mark their launch into the Irish market, they have some stunning, trend-led pieces and I can see myself doing serious damage on their site.

Last but not least, I am in love with these SPM ankle boots in a buttery, tan suede. The colour and heel height make them perfect for everyday summer wear – they’re incredibly comfy and effortless, a great alternative to sandals and I love them with bare legs and my summer skirts or dresses.

You’ll find them for €110 on the new Irish online shoe site, PurpleTag – and if you fancy snagging yourself a pair, keep a close eye on the site this week!
