Summer Accessories from Wantable


My monthly accessories subscription from Wantable gives me a steady supply of new accessories to jazz up my wardrobe. Which is good, because I really don't buy a lot of clothes. With new jewelry, scarves and sunglasses, I can at least make my old reliable wardrobe more stylin'.

Or my daughter's wardrobe, as the case may be. My June Wantable box included this pretty, patterned twistable headband. It's not something I think I can carry off at my age, but it looks pretty cute on her. This would be the ideal piece to keep your hair in control while visiting festivals, parties and beaches in the summer heat and humidity.

This "boho bracelet," on the other hand, happens to suit my style. I have worn it several times since I received it (although my daughter is modelling it here). I love the silver metal distressed stones.

I also received this Narmi watch with wood-look face and strap. I have three watches from Wantable now and I really enjoy wearing them. Before I got these watches, I hadn't worn a watch for nine years (since my daughter was born and I went on maternity leave). I'm not sure why I stopped because I find checking a watch much more convenient than consulting my cell phone.

Visit Wantable for subscription information. They also offer fun intimates and makeup subscriptions.

What's your favourite summertime accessory?

  1. They're all really nice, my favourite would be the watch. I think my favourite summertime accessory would be numerous hairclips to keep my hair off my face and neck!

    1. I haven't used hair clips or barrettes for a very long time. I just push it into a ponytail. But I should really branch out and try other things! :) Jo

  2. You know your beautiful daughter SO resembles our cousin Maureen - I don't know if I told you this before - I think of this every time I see her...

    1. She definitely has a lot of MacDonald in her! Including those blue eyes!

  3. Love that picture of your daughter, beautiful!
