The Color of Summer, Revisited

Once upon a time I wrote a post about turquoise being the “color of the summer.” That was last June and now that another summer is already well upon us, I have to say that I still agree with my original assessment!


In my opinion, there is no other color so perfectly suited for pools and swimming and sun and fun. Here are some fun turquoise things I’m loving lately – it’s only mid-July, so you still have plenty of time to buy and enjoy them while the weather is still hot!


This clutch is actually what got me thinking about writing this post. I love its oversized look and gold hardware!



These earrings are gorgeous and would dress up any outfit. Plus, for $38, you can’t beat the price!



I am kind of obsessed with this bracelet. So delicate and interesting, and I actually have a very similar necklace that I bought in Israel that I love. May need to actually buy this one!



The turquoise/gold combo is everywhere! Check out this fun chunky necklace from J.Crew. I have a feeling my mom is going to run out and buy this.



I can’t think of anything more fun or summery than these espadrille wedges. I am obsessed with anything Missoni! How amazing would these look with a little black dress?! PLEASE go on sale, beautiful shoes!



While we’re talking about turquoise shoes, I need to give these sandals some love also. Look how sassy they are with that fun pom-pom!


And finally, what could be prettier than a little crocheted shift dress? This would be so pretty with nude sandals or wedges and some intense gold earrings. So summery!




I personally rock my turquoise Kendra Scott earrings every chance I get, but I may need a little more of the color in my life…. I sense a trip to the mall very soon!
