Show Pony Summer Survival Kit

Summer is upon us at last here in Seattle with July quickly approaching! Between running to the beach, wine tasting with friends, and soaking up the sunshine, you are on the go a lot this season. A busy schedule requires a few essentials that will keep you fresh and put together for all of your activities, so we’ve assembled a little #ShowPonyBoutique survival kit that you can throw in your bag while you run out the door. Here’s to making the most of another magical Seattle summer!

This pouch from our friends at Clutch Handbags makes the perfect vessel for all of your essentials: it’s slim but can hold as much as you need, and bright enough to not get lost in the depths of your handbag.

Toss in a petite perfume bottle, like this one from I Am Fragrance. Perfume packs a punch and comes in handy when your deodorant just isn’t cutting it. Plus, you’ll feel fresh even after a long day thanks to a little spritz!

It’s always a good idea to have a pair of earrings or a necklace on hand. Often times, spontaneous plans arise during the summer. With your summer survival pack, no one will assume you came to dinner straight from the peach because of your glam accessories.

Oh, and never be caught without a pair of sunglasses!

Styling for Spring

The transition to Spring in Seattle can be a little tough, especially when the weather is as confusing as it has been! While we’re waiting for warmer weather to make itself more permanent, here are some styling tips for surviving the ambiguous month of May.

Throw a Scarf On!

Not sure if the day will be sunny or chilly? Add a scarf to the mix. All of a sudden, you’ll have a wrap when you need one! Plus, how amazing is this scarf’s embroidery? It goes perfectly with the shibori-esque distressed bag.

Opt for a Jersey Top

When you wear a looser, jersey top, it gives you the option to wear a camisole underneath for warmth! This way, you can look the part while staying warm.

Off the Shoulder Tops

If it’s warm but too brisk to wear a tank top, try an off the shoulder top. Not only are they very trendy, but they actually cover up part of your arm. Plus, they look adorable on their own and under a jacket.
