Ready for the sun (with accessories from Wantable)


I took Jolene for a walk this morning and it is the most glorious day. It's a shame the kids are in school because, after the winter we had, we should all be out enjoying a perfect day like this one.

I have been slow to pull out my warm weather clothing, because the winter was so long I feared it would never end. But my summer accessories are at the ready thanks to my Wantable subscription.

My April box featured items to help me with my spring/summer styling. I particularly love the light and breezy Arianna scarf. It's a lightweight infinity style in a beautiful pistachio green floral lace. Of course, you can't face the sun without shades. The bigger the better as far as I'm concerned. These Amira sunglasses are oversized with geometric metallic accents. Wantable suggests pairing them with boho beach waves and hoop earrings. I love my Addie necklace too - it's a distressed silver toned pendant with small turquoise stones and dangly bits. The Hillary earrings, featuring faceted onyx black studs set in a silver tone base, are great everyday earrings for somebody who often wears black (like me).

Wantable is a fun, stylish subscription service that provides accessories, intimates and cosmetic boxes tailored to your personal preferences. Subscribe for $36 a month or buy a single box for $40. Subscriptions are shipped automatically and can be cancelled or skipped anytime. Please note that Canadians are charged a handling fee, provincial tax and duty. Wantable also ships to Australia.

  2. Hi Jo
    Well it seems to me I also have something to say about your little packages you receive from wantable any who the earrings look oddly familiar like the ones you wore when we saw Sugar Ray. So think about giving me this pair just a thought. I'm halfway joking.

    Love Nancy

    1. You have a very good memory for jewellery! You really should have gone into the jewellery business. :)

  3. I am a sucker for tortoise shell sunglasses. Weird right? Something about them just screams classy to me. And that scarf..well frankly the whole box was awesome!!

    1. Not weird. I don't think. I love them too! Thanks Taby.
