(Living room window view)
Every year, August induces this melancholy, regardless of how many times I protest that it is indeed my favorite month. I love the heat of summer, the sun and the clothing. The sports, the warm nights, the half day Fridays. Our apartment looks out onto the ocean, and every August, I have finally succumbed to summer's spell, spending days just staring out the window with the kitty (Stella).
(Hey, we pay a lot in rent, let me gloat a bit...)
But August means Autumn is fast approaching, which in turn means that Winter will soon be rearing it's awful, brutal head. My boyfriend insists that I always get a little dramatic around this time of year, but it's true! August means another Winter is on it's way. But! But... it's important to appreciate what is still here and promise our significant others that we will stop getting moody as the nights get cooler. And what does this have to do with jewelry? Well, seeing as how I went swimming in the ocean on Saturday and emerged with seaweed stuck to every part of my body, I've been inspired to post about the prettier version: oceanic jewelry. Much less slimy than the real thing. And something to remind you of summer when the temperatures start dropping...
