Albin and I always joke when I buy something. Anytime I want to pick up something trivial and fun, Albin imitates me and says it's a "must have." So here are my must haves of the moment. For Summer, bright colors suit me best. It's true. But my Mom uniform on any given day will usually include a variation on these accessories. Practical, functional, and timeless. I popped into Old Navy last week and found those jelly sandals and knew I couldn't leave without them. I am such a sucker for ankle straps so I bought them in Coral and Black and I know that I will be using them all summer. Comfortable, waterproof, super cute, and under $15!! You have got to be kidding me! (The coral is now sold out) I use an oversized brown leather bag like this one as my daily carry-all. EVERYTHING goes in this, including fun shades and a Panama hat. PLEASE throw your fedoras away, and get a hat that has a brim to protect your face. J. Crew makes a perfect one. And while you're at it, stop being a sunglasses snob! Treat yourself to one nice pair and then fill in with trendy cheapies. Such an easy way to change your style without committing beaucoup bucks!
