Sunglasses look #1:

With a unique shape and edgy gold accent, these sunglasses will make a statement anywhere. Wear them out with friends, to explore the city or to relax poolside. You’ll love these for an added touch of glam.
THE PERFECT SUMMER HEEL
And because we could not do an accessory What to Wear without featuring a gorgeous summer heel, we pulled the ultimate colorful sandal from Oak Hall. With a little bow on the front, shades of bright colors and a small enough heel that you can dress up or down, you should be talking yourself into buying these beautiful little stunners. Wondering where you can break these cuties in? The Rooftop Party at the Peabody Hotel on July 4.
