There's no better way to kick of this official first weekend of summer than by talking about accessories. Who doesn't love to spice up their outfits with amazing accessories? These are the final little touches that make our style pop and let our personality shine through. Over the years accessories have become almost as important as the outfit itself so I would be remiss not to include at least one post about these awesome little details. So what items are trending for this summer season? I've put together a list of the ultimate summer essentials that everyone needs in their life...
Shades are extremely important for the summer season. Most of us will be spending a lot more time outdoors and you don't want to be squinting all day from the sun in your eyes...that's not a good look on anyone. So, I've rounded up six of the best styles of shades for this summer season and I know at least one pair will be perfect for you. 1) These black oval shades are perfect for that retro look. 2) These mirrored aviators are everything right now!! 3) These mirrored shades are perfect for those of us who don't look good in aviators haha. 4) These shades were just too cute not to include and are for the daring fashionista. 5) Heart shaped shades are for the super romantic. 6) These orange shades scream hippie chic and are perfect for your retro look.

#2: Flip Flops
