What I bought this week: hats, sunglasses & jewelry

We’ve had a busy week with some home projects and family visits, which has put me a bit behind on posting. But I did want to share a few summer accessories that made it into my shopping cart this week…

Summer accessories update

Wallaroo Catalina raffia hat

Raffia hats are on trend this summer (and a perfect accompaniment to a Coastal Grandmother look). I have a hard time finding hats that fit my small head, so was happy this one was also offered in a smaller Petite size. The adjustable band assures a perfect fit.

Summer is the perfect time to have some fun with your accessories, and I love the darling fruit embroidery on this cotton canvas bucket hat. Madewell is currently running a 30% off your purchase promotion with code HEATWAVE.

A sunny outlook…

I haven’t updated my sunglasses in a couple of years, and it’s time.

Loewe square sunglasses in yellow.

I’m loving the current trend toward bolder sunglasses, but so many styles are too large for my narrow face. I just tried this style in a tortoiseshell color and the fit was perfect, but this yellow pair is calling my name. I have them on order and fingers crossed the yellow will be compatible with my Spring palette…

Madewell Pierport acetate sunglasses

Here’s a more budget-friendly style with a similar look, and it’s 30% off with code HEATWAVE.

And speaking of yellow…

French Kande jewelry from the Cité collection: two necklaces and a cuff bracelet.

long necklace | short necklace | cuff bracelet

French Kande just dropped a new collection, “Cité,” and it’s one of my favorites yet! I love the new “Butterscotch” stone mix, as shown on the necklace on the left with a lock charm. I’m also smitten with those gold baroque pearls (necklace on top right). And I have a couple of these cuff bracelets, which are so easy and comfortable to wear. The crystals on this one add a nice bit of sparkle.

I have a few pieces from this collection on order, so look for those soon. If you prefer silver-toned jewelry, there are plenty of choices for you in this new collection too!
