Part 2 of my Spring Fashion Series is all about the ACCESSORIES! What’s an outfit without the accessories, am I right? If you missed Part 1- see it here: Spring Clothing Must-Haves for the Midwestern Girl. As I mentioned in Part 1, spring in the midwest can be chilly in the morning, and warm during the day. Some days, there might be a 20 degree difference in morning and afternoon. Here are my favorite must-have accessories for spring in the Midwest.
Scarves & Rainboots
A blanket scarf is perfect for those chilly mornings. Easy to throw on and take off as needed. It’s April and you know what that means. April showers… meaning rain boots! Rain boots are a necessity in the spring. Lots of rain and mud this time of year.

Other great options for scarves (for a more fashionable spring look, rather than for warmth) are lightweight scarves! So versatile!
I love the lighter materials and colors for spring!
All of these are around $10 on Amazon…such a steal.
Another great pair of sunnies that I LOVE, but are much more expensive are these Quay “On The Prowl” Sunnies – I got mine from Nordstrom.

Who needs those skinny heels, when the chunky look is back in style? I found some great chunky heeled shoes at Target, Nordstrom and even Marshalls lately! These ones below are from Amazon and are such a great deal!! I prefer block/chunky heels over the skinny heels any day! They are so comfortable!
Cross body purses
Perfect for on-the-go, cross body purses are a must have for spring! These 2 below are my go-to cross body purses, one black and one nude/taupe. I love the gold feather and tassel detail on the front. They are the Jessica Simpson Collection and I got both of these from Nordstrom Rack, but purchased them through Hautelook (a Nordstom company). They are super affordable and very good quality!
Perfect for that messy hair day, I love wearing hats to run errands, especially when my hair is in need of some TLC. Just cover it up with a cute hat and you’re good to go!
H&M is killing it with their hat selection currently…
There’s also the felt-like wide brim floppy hats that you can wear (below). I have them in several colors, but these are more for the cooler days, as the felt tends to get a bit hot! Mine is from H&M, but I’ve gotten my others from Target as well.
Last, but not least for accessories is the jewelry. I don’t know about you, but I feel naked without at least my rings and earrings on. I can go without a necklace, but I typically don’t. Jewelry completes the look! Here are some of my favorites for spring.
I’m so glad Target has Sugarfix by BaubleBar now! Their items are just so darn cute, and still affordable! I recently picked up a set of climber earrings and ear jackets, another pair of ear climbers, plus this necklace combo (shown middle). Their tassel earrings are SO cute! I would buy all of them if I could. Then again, I would buy everything and anything if I could. 😉
These three are more Target finds (addict!). The left chunky necklace is another Sugarfix by BaubleBar purchase and I LOVE it! The middle picture is a super cute tassel necklace I found in their jewelry case, and the far right were a couple of clearance finds about a month or two ago- thus introducing me to “ear jacket” type earrings. Gotta love Target!
