Brixton Joanna Hat ($44)
A straw hat that’s both classy and functional is not easy to find. This one has a wide brim for maximum sun protection and an understated ribbon band.
Richer Poorer Classic Bralette ($28)
Oh so soft, this cotton bra will quickly become a daily staple. Offering subtle sexiness with its triangle design, it’s also supportive, with a wide elastic band and adjustable straps. (Caveat: Women with larger cup sizes might find that it’s not supportive enough.)
Levi’s Buffalo Plaid Wrap Scarf ($35)
A classic scarf can make any plain outfit festive—and we’ve always been suckers for plaid.
Made Stamped Geometric Mountain Necklace ($32)
Gifting jewelry isn’t easy, but this one is a no-brainer for the mountain lover. The delicate hand-stamped pendant dangling from a brass chain is a subtle wearable icon that speaks to her love of the outdoors.
Rip Curl Handcrafted Slim Wallet ($40)
A handcrafted wallet for under $50? Yes, please. This one is made from vegetable-tanned leather that’s oil finished to lend it a lightly weathered look. The slim design avoids pocket bulge but still has all the slots you need.
Vans Authentic Sneakers ($50)
Available in more than 25 colors, these timeless low-top kicks go well with just about any outfit. The sturdy canvas uppers and rubber waffle outsoles can tolerate many miles of urban exploration.
Quay Australia Mod Star Sunglasses ($39)
These vintage-inspired sunglasses boast a delicate metal frame, adjustable nose pads, and bold round shape.
Everlane Twill Zip Tote ($48)
A classic bag that’s perfect for work, the farmers’ market, or everyday carrying. The Twill Zip is big enough to fit a laptop, made from sturdy cotton twill, and features leather straps, a gunmetal zip-top closure, and interior pocket.
Pendleton Marl Neck Warmer ($40)
Add a pop of color with this stretchy neck warmer made knit from a marled acrylic/nylon/wool-blend yarn in a beautiful blue or tan.
