Summertime is right around the corner (yay)! Living in New York City, it’s hard to come across classically preppy summer accessories, especially since hipsters are totes taking over. Getting away from the city and sipping bloody-mary’s on Navy Beach with my babies, Bruiser & Paris, is the most active I want to be on Saturday afternoons. However, lately I’ve noticed that my fellow fashionistas have been lagging in their beach accessory wear. Sure, anyone can throw on a Missoni sarong and a pair of Ray-ban aviators and call it a day, but I totally miss the long lost days of Jackie-O and Audrey Hepburn. I’m sick of seeing all these Rihanna-esque wannabes with bangles up to their elbows and Louis Vuitton Monogrammed Scarves wrapped around their sun-dried hair. Grace and simplicity will always be in style and that’s why I’m totally loving Vineyard Vines’ new Raised Icon Bangles, which not only cover the preppy color spectrum but don’t weigh down your sun-kissed wrists when raising your Kate Spade Coral Print Champagne glass to your Mac Lipglass covered lips! I also love their pink and navy Whale Headbands to match. More unique (and way cuter) than J.Crew’s boring tortoise braided headbands, Vineyard Vines uses cotton lining and silk for their line of headbands, and you don’t get those annoying marks on your temples at the end of the day. If you want the full beach look, snatch the new Vines Hibiscus Scarf in Jake Blue, it also looks super fashion wrapped around the clutch of your fave summer straw satchel!
