Readers Answer: Go-to Summer Accessory

 I asked my readers a while ago on my Tumblr and Facebook page what their favorite summer accessory was and I got some great answers! I thought it would be fun to share what readers said!
Many of you said your Ray Ban sunglasses... I don't have a pair, but my birthday is on Thursday (eeeek!!) and they are atop my list. However, I need a new pair of sunglasses like I need a hole in the head. I already have a Lilly pair which are my favorite and several other fun pairs.
Wellies Make the World Go Round said that she loves her Eliza B. 1 1/2" Ribbon flip flops because they don't get ruined by the water when she is at the pool/beach/river! Just like WMWGR, I love my Eliza B. Flip flops!
What Miss Loves said that a Jackie Cardigan is her to go summer accessory because she has a job where she needs to be dressed conservatively and the Jackie Cardigan is great to throw over dresses and comes in so many different colors!
April Afternoon said that her go to item is Haviana Flip Flops! I don't own a pair but I've tried them on before and they are most definitely extremely comfortable!
Whales and Wayfarers says she loves her Vineyard Vines tote! I am on her side with this one, I loooooove my VV tote (pictured above)! It is so perfect to bring anywhere during the summer months. I use it as a purse sometimes, use it at the beach or the pool or even as a small overnight bag!
I personally love my trusty old Carmex but a lot of you said that you love Kiehl's lip balm for your sun chapped lips! I do love Kiehl's but I am still convinced that Carmex takes the cake.
 Pearls, Curls, and A Southern Girl says that her summer staples are bright sundresses, Lilly croakies, and Ray Bans!
Sweet Caroline says that she loves her J. Crew 3" chino shorts! She says she loves them because there is such a variety of colors to choose from. I love them too--My favorite pair is definitely an olive greenish color with hot pink embroidered whales, they are too fun!

So readers, what are some other things that you just cannot go one summer without? I'm always looking for some fun new ideas to have fun with this summer! Have a fabulous day and thank you to all of the readers who submitted their summer favorites!

I'm with you on the carmax! A lot of people don't understand how I could use it, but it does the job! :)

I think I seriously have every color of J.Crew chino shorts that they make. Haha.

My go-to summer must-have are my Rainbows. They go with almost everything, and are so comfy!!

Good morning from Tokyo!

My three must-haves for summer are my Hermes scarf (for protecting and tieing back hair), Burt's Bees lip glosses, and sun-screen. I'm a fair-skinned girl and much as I love to run about with my children outdoors, we all need to protect ourselves from the elements!

A lovely day to you and yours...
