{warm like a summer sunset}

There have been a couple of times this summer where I've gotten cold and wished I had a sweater…

With Labor Day approaching quickly I'm wearing as much white as possible… Okay, that's a blatant lie. I wear white all the time and I never let rules like silly Labor Day stop me from wearing white. (Just wait until I'm a bride - I might as well invest in a lifetime supply of bleach because I L-O-V-E wearing white!)

I have a weird tendency to get super hot or really cold in the summer. It's caused me to always carry a sweater no matter what so that I'm always prepared. One of my favorite things to do is wear neutrals and then have a really brightly colored accessory. Normally, that's jewelry in my case. Recently, I've tried to mix things up a bit by finding pieces that can help me transition some color into Fall… I normally wear a lot of black (remember my New Year's Resolution?). I love how I can scrunch these sleeves up easily and toss it in my bag. It's light weight enough so that I don't feel like I'm getting sweaty in the Summer humidity. It's safe to say that everything Marie Oliver creates is luscious and full of life - I can't get enough and am excited to see what goodies they come out with for Fall! These colors remind me of a summer sunset so I hope that their new collection has rich colors that evoke the reds and oranges of Fall - swoon!

Love Always,
