Finally, a parasol is a statement piece that will do a great job at protecting your skin from the sun’s rays. This beautiful paper one, from Mae Vintage Inc, would be a wonderful addition to your closet. The paper makes this parasol especially light weight and the floral print is perfect for summer. Since this is such a large accessory, the rest of your outfit can be neutral to showcase this amazing piece.

What are some of your favorite accessories to use to add another layer of sun protection? Do you have any favorite places for unique vintage finds? How do you like to accessorize for summer? Feel free to leave any comments, questions, or links!
