Hey QueenB, what is the story with scarves in the spring/summer?
Let's start with the pashmina. In most climates this is never going to be brought out in the summer, but in Colorado this can been a nice addition to the cooler summer nights in place of a jacket. The nice cashmere ones are the best, but you'll drop $200-300 on a good one. The less expensive versions are okay for the occasional wearer.
I found this great picture of several ways to wear a pashmina.
Any advice on shoes for the summer?
I have one word for you: wedge. I know some people are scared of a very high heel, but a wedge is the most comfortable heel you'll ever wear. Please go try a pair on. They go with pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, swimsuits... basically everything. And they are everywhere right now. A wedge is feminine, fun, fashionable, and freaking awesome. Here are a variety of styles I love.
Have fun accessorizing. It's the icing on the cupcake...
