Get into straw hats this summer, and they don’t have to be big floppy beach hats. Try a straw cowboy hat in traditional neutrals or fun colors. We love the Tarnish Crochet Straw Hat from Nordstrom with beaded detailing. For just $38, this hat is a fabulous buy.
Pull your hair back with a headband embellished with beading, lace, ribbons and other ladylike accents. You’ll adore the Tasha ‘Sasha’ Head Wrap with its sculpted metallic flower and chunky pearl beads. This headband is the perfect way to deal with a bad hair day.
The hottest colors for summertime are lemon yellow, tangerine and lime green. For an easy-going tote bag, pick up the Grovestand on the Go Tote from ModCloth. This fresh bag is the ideal alternative to paper or plastic for your grocery store trips. This eco-friendly tote is available for under $7 and it folds up into its own little fruit-shaped pouch.
