Each season has its own fashion vices. Winter=Coats. Fall=Boots. Spring=Sandals. But Summer? That’s where it gets a little bit more fun (both in your closet and your wallet). After I’ve stocked up on breezy linens and a few staple summer dresses that I tend to live in, style gets to go into a completely more playful, much lighter direction: Accessories.
At both stores, the summertime is perhaps our most colorful, accessories-laden seasons of the year. Box after box, our orders from across the country ship in with a rainbow of scarves, hand-selected earrings, trendy sunglasses and addictive Nikibiki wear. While we adore consigning those unique pieces by high-enders like David Yurman and Tiffany & Co, we also like to have some brand new jewelry on hand so that everyone can splurge on a handful of goodies for prices under $30.
Because we only carry a few of each style at any given time, wandering in our doors can be a grab bag of surprises. While our Johns Landing location might’ve gotten a certain necklace style in aqua and pink, Broadway may have the orange and purple versions front and center.
We try to keep it super affordable, too. Earrings are usually between $9-14, necklaces in the $14-30 ranges, sunglasses are always at $14, and all Nikibiki tanks and leggings are under $30. For apparel, we change up the color orders depending on the season, too. Right now we have a big variety of pool blues, sunny orange tones and bright pinks.
So tell us, ladies: Which must-haves catch your eye?
