This Prada raffia bag is great for summer AND it was also ideal for travel. We recently traveled to the Middle East and I carried this bag from Israel to Jordan to the pyramids in Egypt. It’s light yet big enough to carry everything you need. It has a detachable shoulder strap and a removable pouch for quick items like lipstick or keys. Its unique triangular shape makes it work as both a sporty/casual and a dress bag, making it incredibly functional. The white stays in and out of stock, but it comes in a pretty yellow and there’s also a leather version that transitions easily from summer to fall.

My husband Chris likes to keep a FULL itinerary when we travel and I had to be prepared! I bought these slides for our trip knowing they would be comfortable for a lot of walking and boy were they ever. Versatile and stylish enough to wear with shorts, dresses and jeans, they also kept my feet cool. For all the ladies asking for comfortable shoes for the summer, these will not disappoint. The straps are adjustable to fit narrow and wide feet.

3) Gucci sunglasses

These sunglasses are the perfect accessory when you’re running out the door and just need to put something on to look sleek. Since they are large frames, they are “no makeup required” sunglasses. You look effortlessly chic and they cover quite a large part of your face. Add some lip gloss and you’re out the door! Whether you go for these exact sunglasses or a more affordable option, chic sunglasses are an instant, easy way to enhance a look. Look for some modern and affordable sunglasses brands at Le Specs and QUAY. I also took these Quay kites on a trip and loved them!

4) Chloe sneakers

Believe it or not, I walked the West Bank in Israel in these Chloe sneakers…proving that they are not only fashionable but also functional! The cool quilting, mixed media style and 2.5-inch platform were the first draw of these unique sneakers. But the comfort keeps me consistently reaching for them.

5) Valentino Belt

For spring/summer AND autumn/winter you need a nice belt! So if you haven’t found one you like yet, now is the time! I love these Valentino reversible belts. The white changes to black, as does the honey brown. If you’re looking for something more affordable, I love this belt too!

6) Paco Rabanne Statement Necklace

This beautiful necklace by Paco Rabanne is a picture! I love finding jewelry that is unique and bold. It also hits in that sweet spot right around the collarbone. I bought it in Dubai and was so happy to find it online so I could share the link with you. I wore it with dresses, jeans, shorts…pretty much everything. Statement items don’t have to be saved for dressy outfits.

7) Harriet Isles Foldable Hat

In the summer you need a super chic hat! I talked about how adding a hat to an outfit can instantly make you look more stylish. AND a collapsible hat for traveling is a must. Take a casual t-shirt and jeans to the next level or wear it with a dress to add a little something extra. Hats are surprisingly versatile once you’re brave enough to wear them. The exact style is sold out, but this is another similar option that is also packable. For another option from Harriet Isles, this hat is also great.

8) Bottega Veneta Bag

This STUNNING white Bottega Veneta cassette bag remains my favorite! It is so unique and really a very special bag. The necklace is hefty and luxurious and I love the oversized woven leather that Bottega Veneta is known for. It’s quite pricey, but there are plenty of look-a-likes out there.

9) Initial Necklace:

I’ve had this first Oscar de la Renta necklace for over two years now and it really is the perfect layering necklace! It is also beautiful in itself. I love bold gold jewelry and this necklace is a statement piece without being over the top. It is gold plated so that it does not discolour. I stopped buying the cheaper stuff because it just goes in the trash after a season.

10) Dean Davidson Hoops

I’ve been wearing these classic gold Dean Davidson hoops on repeat for several weeks now. They are the perfect size, 1.5 inches whether I wear my hair up or down and they are very lightweight so they don’t pull on your earlobes. These would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift to give (or get)!

11) Julie Fox Bracelet

Sticking to the jewelry theme, this Julie Vos bracelet is one of my absolute favorites. You might recognize it because I wear it with everything from dressy to more casual looks. I wear my Julie Vos pieces daily! These bracelets are beautiful and make the perfect statement. In this post I share more about them. If you like the larger cuff, make sure to grab the smaller version as well.

This cloud clutch handbag is from Mansur Gavriel. I made a video about designer items and whether they are worth the money. In that video I compared this mid-range pouch with the über popular Bottega Veneta bag. This one is so similar in style, but at a fraction of the price! It’s still a bit pricey, so I found this one from Amazon, which is another great option! The style of the pouch bag is very trendy at the moment and certainly a nice addition for the summer!
