When I graduated college in May, all I wanted was a small, black backpack to go with everything. That's when I went to the Premium Outlets in Cabazon and found this MCM backpack. If you couldn't tell from my Instagram lately, this backpack has been a closet staple for me this season and I take it everywhere from daily errands, to shopping, to vacations! I think a good fashion backpack is convenient and keeps your hands free when shopping or touring a new city. A black one is nice because it matches every outfit, but there are lots of fun backpacks out there! The one featured above is sold out, so I've linked a few of my favorites below!
When purchasing a backpack, it's important to consider its size. Try to find one that isn't too large (such as one that could be used for school), but also one that isn't too small. The one I'm wearing is a mini, but it has two pockets, and holds everything I need! When searching online, make sure there are pictures of the backpack on someone or compared to something similar in size as measurements alone do not show you how the backpack will look on. It all depends on what you plan on carrying, so keep that in mind (:
The Card Holder:
Another item I always carry in my backpack is this cardholder from ASOS. They are great for making some extra room if your backpack (or purse) is too small for a large wallet. They're also great in airports and on trips when you don't need every credit, store, and business card we all carry in our wallets! I've also linked a few cardholders below ♡
Now that summer is officially here, the weather has been consistently warm which means that, most days, it's too hot for layering clothes. During these days, I tend to stick to rompers, dresses, or the short + dress combo which leaves little room for that extra piece of clothing needed to create a unique look. However, the perfect accessory can add something special to every outfit you wear this season. Continue reading for my 5 ways to accessorize this summer!
One way to dress up your summer outfit is to wear a fun, unique bag! The outfit I am wearing above is minimal, so the unique style of my bag adds a nice pop to the outfit. I've been loving basket bags this season and they come in so many fun shapes and sizes. I've linked a couple of my favorites below.
Another way to style a simple outfit is to add a trendy shoe. This summer, try a colorful or embellished shoe, or a chunky espadrille like the ones below to dress up your outfit!
Sunglasses are an absolute necessity when going out in the summer, but that doesn't mean they can't be fun too! I chose to wear a pair of red sunglasses to add a pop of color to my outfit, and you can too with some of these styles below.
layering minimal necklaces:
Wearing too many large pieces, or even just one heavy necklace can easily become uncomfortable on a hot day. Instead, layering minimal necklaces allows you to wear more without feeling weighed down. I have been loving the trend of coin necklaces this season and layering them with a more basic style, and I've linked a few of my current faves below.
Until recently, I strictly wore stud earrings unless I was attending a formal event. Now, I've been seeing statement earrings everywhere and have been loving incorporating them into my everyday outfits. I also love that they come in so many shapes, designs, and colors! Check out some of my favorite statement earrings below.
Bonus style tip:
On any day when you feel your outfit needs some dressing up, try adding a fun hair accessory, or incorporate a braid into your hairstyle!
