Top 5 Summer Accessories To Shop Now

Top 5 Summer Accessories To Shop Now

With all the sales abound thanks to Memorial day I thought I do a post on the top accessories you'll need this summer. I'd def take advantage of these great deals. I will not be mentioning shoes in this post because I did a post here exclusively on them and if you wear extended sizes its a must see.

Will you be taking advantage of these awesome sales I'm thinking of doing a round up should I?

Let's break down the top accessories into categories
The first category is embellished: think bags, hats, and accessories with pom-pom, pearls, and other 3D appliques.

SHOP EMBELLISHMENT


Second natural think of bags made out of natural fibers Wicker, Linen, Cord and Raffia

SHOP NATURAL


3rd geometric shapes: this is def a newer category especially for bags in the recent years we've seen a resurgent of certain shapes like the bucket this year, however, the circle shaped bags are def having a moment.

SHOP SHAPE



4th is the seventies inspired eyewear: a move away from mirrored lenses to an emphasis on tints, yellow tints say urban and cool, vintage tints in brown's say bohemian, and retro.

SHOP RETRO


The 5th and final category is statement earrings: there are so many iterations of this so there will be a style to match your taste. From drops (like these) to hoops to tassels in soo many colors it's a trend that looks good on anyone and is an easy fix to a basic outfit. Dress up your jeans and a tee and some color and flare to a monochrome outfit you name it.

SHOP STATEMENT EARRING

Hey, Chicsters long time no speak, yall its the end of the school year and to say I am overwhelmed is an understatement but, lets not fall down that rabbit hole. In today's post I'm sharing an outfit you can wear this weekend or to a barbecue or brunch on memorial day weekend #betterdaysareahead 🙏🏾

SHOP THE POST


As soon as I saw this summer dress (Off the Shoulder Dress with Ruffle Overlay) I knew it would be perfect for the weekend. I choose to pair it with the (wide width) Maura Embellished Slides also from Eloquii but you could totally pair the Dress with wedges or lace up sandals. For accessories I chose a Ring Tote and a two toned Hat from Target and to finish things off I went with circle Sunnies from Forever 21 (had them for ages).

So what do you thing is this look weekend appropriate? Blue and white pieces are definitely having a moment from seersucker to banker stripes are you digging the trend?

5 Lessons MotherHood Has Taught Me

motherhood collage supplechic
I know this post is a little different from what I typically post, so if you came for style no worries you can check out my latest outfit posts Here

Perseverance
Motherhood taught me about perseverance, it was one of its first lessons, I persevered through about 6 months plus of morning sickness, I persevered through contractions that started days before my son was born. 
Through having a child (as a child really) with most of my family on a different continent, through having no mode of transportation but needing to take my newborn to his check up, through for a time no degree, and no home or income of my own.

Endurance
Motherhood taught me to make up my mind, to make up my mind to endure the pain of full labor, endure giving up my youth ( had my son at 21), certain experiences, and the loss of my immature view of love and loyalty.

Strength
Motherhood taught me to tap into my inner strength to endure, working on my bachelors and masters degree while raising a child and working, dealing with mom guilt, and putting others need above mine.

Capacity
Motherhood taught me to find the capacity to be loyal while feeling disappointed, to love someone as much as I loved myself if not more.

Self Esteem
Motherhood taught me to love myself, because of my strength, to be confident in my voice, to appreciate my body stretch marks, hyper pigmentation, loose skin, cellulite, and all. To realize that my worth does not come from superficial things.

To sum it all I guess its shown me the resilience of the woman's spirit; the last ten years of my life despite what social media may depict hasn't been ______ and giggles. There are moments that have been really hard and seasons that have made me want to give up (on my educational, business, and even marital endeavours).

I'm still grateful, my son turned ten this year and in him I see a living testimony, a culmination he is a vibrant oneAlthough these last ten years haven't been the easiest, and I feel like Im not quite where I want to be. I know they probably pale in comparison to some. The only real advice I can give to those being refined like myself is to hold on to Jesus he is the one who loves, who saves, who comforts, who makes everything new.
