Taking a summer day from drab to fab is not rocket science, sunshine, water, a pool raft, or a sandy beach and an icy umbrella drink will do just fine thanks. But when it comes to other favorite summer things I think accessories get top billing. Here are the fab four; Great sandals, big tote, chic straw hat and a fab pair of sunnies and your good to go!

The Winston Sunnies, my favorites! They just make everything look good.
Hat, hats, hats! Could there be a better accessory? Not only do they look great but they can be a girls best friend on a bad hair day. There are tons to choose from out there so go try on, not every hat looks good on every head. 

These sandals are so cute and comfy and they are currently 30% off through 5/25 with COUPON CODE MEM30 I got 2 pairs (black & silver) for $33, free shipping too! They also come in white, turquoise, red, gold, orange and yellow.
These totes are reversible so it's really two for the price of one! These are also 30% off through 5/25 with COUPON CODE MEM30. Tons of  reversible combos, cobalt/navy, mint/dark mint, black/red, light blue/navy, grey/black, yellow/taupe, pink/taupe, orange/pale orange.
Snapped this pic on a recent garden tour in Ojai, so I would remember it. (and cause it was so dern perdy.)  I've put mint and cucumber in water before but never thought of strawberries.  This was absolutely the most refreshing drink ever, give it a try this weekend. (More from that garden tour coming soon.)

Cheers to the first long weekend to kick off summer!
