These past few weeks, I’ve been longing for my summer wardrobe – the lightweight cotton, the flip-flops – ah the flip flops! Since mother nature is taking her sweet time bringing us the sun and the heat this year, and the unofficial best weekend of the year, MDW, is only a couple days away I’ve resorted to taking out my summer jewelry instead. One of my favorite, most versatile pieces, is this striped necklace imported from Bali by the quirkiest man I’ve ever met. He owns a small Balinese shop a mile away from my parent’s home in Palm Beach, Florida and I make sure to stop in every time I’m down. By pairing it with this shirt from the Loft, which I’ve only ever worn as a layering piece in the past, I’m giving a subtle nod to the warmer months ahead (right?? mother nature?!). Here’s to hoping beautiful weather comes soon and sticks around. Summer 2013, the jersey shore is ready for you!
