Summer is Here!

My summer holidays start this week and it feels pretty good. I love summer! It’s sunny, it’s warm and most people are in a good mood. People are travelling, visiting friends and family and having a good time.

Summer is the time for outdoor concerts, festivals and picnics in the park. It’s a casual, relaxed season. It’s the time to wear shorts and sandals and pretty little sundresses.

As I won’t need to dress for the office during my time off, my choice of accessories will be different. Pieces with a casual, laid back vibe will be preferred. What do you look for in summertime jewelry?

How about these fabulous bangles? With all the short sleeves and tanks being worn this season, I think an arm full of these would be great.

As sandals are the footwear of the season, it’s a perfect time to wear a toe ring. Feet need accessories too.

I’ve found the perfect pendant for a day at the beach. Myrtle the Turtle would be the perfect companion.

I love bright, happy colours and these mint green earrings are fun, casual and cheerful. Perfect for summer, I think.

The perfect little sundress needs a nice, summery necklace. This daisy necklace could be the right one for the job.

I apologize to those of you living in the southern hemisphere. I’m so happy that summer is finally here that I can’t even bear to think about winter. I’m sending warm, sunny thoughts your way.

High of 72 today in sunny California when it's usually in the 90's/100's. Not complaining though - I love it this cool weather!

I also love the cool summer items you featured; just lovely and perfect for summer.

Thank you for including my daisies!
