Statement Summer Accessories 2019

Hello friends! Right before I started my blog I was keen on trimming down my closet into a capsule wardrobe (my summer capsule wardrobe is coming soon btw). I still love the idea – build off your best basics. This is where statement accessories come into play. They can really transform a great basic top or tee shirt dress into an outfit that gets you noticed. And not noticed for being tacky!

Many statement accessories are trend pieces that may go out of style in a few seasons which is why I love Sole Society. They have great quality statement summer accessories that don’t break the bank, but will hold up to a few years of regular use. Handbags are a place a lot of women invest in their wardrobe, but for a statement bag only for going, out I would not want to spend over $100.

In today’s post I’m going to focus on a couple of statement summer accessory trends I’m fond of this season. Sole Society really nailed these pieces and there’s enough variety that there’s something for almost everyone.

Straw Bags

You may have noticed me toting several different straw bags last summer and this spring. This is DEFINITELY one of my favorite trends. Have you seen my home? I’m all about natural texture in my home decor too! Here are some statement straw bags I love from Sole Society.

Embellished Sandals

You may have seen my recent post about spring and summer shoes favorites where I mentioned the embellished sandal trend was a favorite of mine. Whether it’s grommets or fringe – I love that all of these sandals bring a little something extra. Below are some statement sandals from Sole Society.

Kimonos are a great third piece to step up your everyday outfit. Without the lace kimono I’m just wearing a tank bodysuit and shorts, but it looks like so much more by just adding one pretty layer. I actually grabbed this lace kimono to wear at the beach over my swimsuit but it’s also pretty for a night out! Whether you like lace, floral, or leopard – Sole Society has options for everyone’s tastes!

You may have noticed my wrap bracelet above. That’s another accessory trend I’ll be sharing on the blog next week! Stay tuned or sign up for my weekly newsletter so you don’t miss a post!

Shop My Look:

I’m wearing size small in the gray bodysuit and XS in the shorts (though a size small might have fit even better). I am not usually one for bodysuits unless I’m wearing something that conceals my lower belly a bit. The paperbag waist shorts are perfect for that! The embellished sandals I am wearing are SUPER comfortable and fit true to size.

Thanks again for stopping by! I’m so grateful to be able to work from home in this short stage of life where my kids are little and I owe it all to you guys!! Have a great weekend.

Thank you to Sole Society for collaborating on this post.
