Chloe and I have finally (mostly) cleaned out our closets and (sort of) put away our winter clothes. For the most part, spring cleaning is done and we are ready for summer clothes. Which means, it's time for summer accessories! Trends come and go and if I want to stretch my dollars, I'm happy to invest in classic clothes and spend less on trendy accessories. So it's steals and deals for accessories time!

Mint is the color of the season, but bet your bottom dollar, that by next season, this season's mint green will scream "so 2000 and late" (sorry, Fergie) and I'd rather put my hard-earned greens somewhere else. So Asos wins the steal by a mile for these summer accessories.

And the hard earned cash could go towards Karen Walker sunnies, which would be an excellent investment. Except I wear prescription sunglasses and already have my favorite pair. So, since Chloe is also lusting after a pair of Karen Walkers - which are nowhere to be found in our fair city (upside, we're saving $346!!) she found a strikingly similar pair for about $10 all in. That won't dent the wallet when they get left on the beach!

And lastly, we both adore our espadrilles. And wedges. And stripes. Blue and white screams summer in France. Well, everything screams summer in France to me, so I'd snap up the Target pair and wait for the J.Crew pair to go on sale! Score and score!

Do you update your wardrobe with accessories, or buy classics that take you from season to season?
