1. Scarves: This is a must have item if you live in San Diego. The weather here never gets really cold, but also never gets really hot. A scarf is an easy piece to carry around and throw on if the wind picks up or if the temp dips below 70. Also, I pretty much wear a t-shirt, jeans and a cardigan every single day, so scarves are my main accessory. The one shown is my new fave from brightly twisted.
2. Reef flip flops: Flip flops are another San Diego staple. I wear them year round and often have more than 10 pairs in my closet at once. These ones from Reef are by far the best! I love the thin strap and the sole is contoured and supportive without being clunky. I buy one to two pairs of these every year since I wear them frequently.
3. Sunglasses: Do you see a theme here? Yes, I live at the beach. I have always had sensitive eyes and am one of those people that wears sunglasses when its cloudy (or raining even) I never, ever, ever leave the house without sunglasses. I even keep an emergency pair in my car. I buy all my sunglasses from this place in town called Designer Eyes where you can get 3 pairs for $20. This allows me to have dozens of pairs, and I never get upset if a pair breaks or get scratched.
4. Toms: I looooooooove Toms! They are so comfy and affordable! Plus, Toms donates a pair of shoes to a child in need with every pair sold. I got plain gray ages ago, but Toms are expanding into all sorts of fun patterns and styles now. The Hubs got me this cute patterned pair for our 2nd anniversary (the cotton anniversary) Just like with scarves, I’m a pretty boring dresser so these Toms act as an accessory for me.
5. BDG T-shirts: These are 2 for $24 at urban outfitters. They are super soft, perfectly shaped and come in every color and a variety of patterns. The daily t-shirt I mention in part one of this post are these.
6. Delicate small charm necklaces: When I do accessorize, this is it! Whoa, real “statement” pieces huh? I’m not afraid to admit that I’m not exactly the trendiest dresser. I try to look nice and put together, but I’m not much of a risk taker. I tend to lean towards jewelry that is on the small side. Usually only one necklace or one ring at a time.
