Summer is here and with the warmer weather, we change our bag for summer essentials to always be prepared for the day. Here, we, the DAOTEY team, have chosen the best summer accessories to keep cool even during the warmest days: a pair of sunnies, a hand fan, hair pins, a thermal spray and an eye serum.
Sunnies are definitely one of our key summer essentials. The accessory not only gives that finished look to the outfit but also protects your eyes from those UV rays. Even if it’s cloudy in the morning, you may need your shades later in the day when the sun is out. At DAOTEY, we love shades from IOKO Optica. Each frame is an authentic artwork and unique design, one of a kind! You have a colourful choice of frames inspired by art, design and modern shapes. And from many designs there is only one unit available.
Abani Hand fan
Who loves carrying a hand fan for staying cool in the warm summer temperatures? Besides its practicality, a hand fan also compliments your outfit on long days out in the sun. You may choose to opt for an automatic hand fan, however, hand held fans are definitely more chic. Just think, in Egyptian iconography fans are used to symbolize majesty and authority. We love Abani & Co for its selection of hand crafted hand fans. Graphical style hand fans handmade in Spain.
Machete Hair accessories
Claw clips and pins are an essential accessory. They can be used at any time to style hair and is an important aid for women especially in warm temperatures to keep long hair up. DAOTEY’s pick is Machete. The hair pins are handmade from Italian acetate, same material as we use for our DAOTEY´s backpacks. We love carrying a hair comb as well, so to organize hair quickly and easily at any time. There you will have an array of colors and sizes to match your style. Also in combination with small combs, that take no space to get a great hair styling at any moment.
Rowse Eye Contour Serum
During summer days, having a small eye contour serum from Rowse in the purse is a must. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of your face, and it’s more sensitive and subject to dehydration. Especially in hot weather, applying an eye contour serum feels refreshing, therefore, we love having it within the hand’s reach throughout the summer days.
Rowse eye contour serum is made from botanical extracts and rich in moisture-enhancing vegan hyaluronic acid, which makes the serum light-weighted, fast-drying gel-textured.
La Roche-Posay Thermal water spray
Last but not least, our go-to summer essential is a refreshing thermal water spray. We chose the La Roche-Posay small size option so it easily fits in the small purse. This summer beauty accessory is a multi-use spray to refresh, calm, reduce redness and soften the skin. This essentially makes a hot summer day in the city or on the beach even better.
On summer days, having a bag that looks small but offers enough space for your summer accessories is important. Nostalgy Handbag in peach, ice blue or off-white is one of those accessories that fit every occasion, time and style. It is spacious enough to fit a pair of sunnies, hand fan, hair accessories, an eye serum,a small thermal water spray, and your cell phone and keys, of course. There is an attachable strap to wear it as a crossbody.
