This is a sponsored post written by me for Lizzy James. All opinions are mine alone.

I love experimenting with my wardrobe all year long, but there’s something about the warmer months that inspires me to get extra colorful & playful with my accessories. During spring & summer, I really love trying out new glasses, new bags and new bracelets. Keep reading to see five items I’m really loving for this summer!

1. Sunglasses
I definitely have a thing for sunglasses! In my current collection, there are at least 12 pairs of sunglasses: everything from $5 pairs I picked up on the streets on NYC to designer pairs ordered online from a department store. I wear sunglasses year-round, but during the warmer months, I basically never leave my house without a pair. I even keep a pair in the center console of my car so that even if I happen to leave the house without a pair, a pair is always waiting for me in the car. No more dreaded driving into the sun without eye protection! Some of my favorite pairs in my collection are this one, this one and this one.

2. Wrap Bracelets
I recently discovered the Mini Celine wrap bracelets from Lizzy James and I love that they offer two looks in one: both a bracelet and a choker necklace. These pieces come in 50 colors so you are sure to find one that fits your style and your wardrobe. They feature both rose goldplate and silverplate crescents along a raw edge black leather strand.

What I love most about the Lizzy James wrap bracelets is that many of them can be customized with various charms for a truly unique look. Plus, they are available in sizes all the way from tiny to xxx-large so everyone can find one that fits. Also, these wrap bracelets are made in the USA and are offered with free shipping for US standard rate orders.

3. Clear Bags
Yes, transparent bags made of a clear plastic material are all the rage this year. You can find clear totes, clear cross-body bags and clear fanny packs at multiple retailers. The trick to successfully wearing one of these clear bags is to make sure that everything that goes inside the bag looks presentable. For example, if you are toting around some feminine products, slip those into a cute makeup bag. After all, everything inside the transparent bag will be seen from the outside.

4. Tassel Bag Charms
For me, summer is all about fun colors and playful accessories. I love the look of bag charms and tassels are very popular nowadays. Add one of these tassel bag charms to your favorite purse this summer for a whimsical touch!

5. Frayed Edge Sandals
Sandals made with a fabric that has a frayed edge is definitely on trend this year. You can find simple slides like these or fun denim wedges like these with frayed edges. Don’t forget that pedicure if your toes will be exposed.

Now I’d love to hear from you. Are you incorporating any of these accessories into your summer wardrobe?
