Labor Day has come and gone, kids are back in school, the commutes are clogged – it’s autumn again. In New England, the month of September is a tease. The ocean waters are finally warm (in comparison to May), the days can still be hot, the sun shines, and the night air is cool and crisp. Just like April 25, “all you need is a light jacket”¹.
But I, like many people, am a summer girl, and I’m not ready to give it up yet. Ten weeks are just too short. And I’m not ready for another winter like last year – Hey Alaska, try delivery tracking. Boston doesn’t want to receive your snowfall amounts again this year.
That’s where this set comes into play. The light, sea glass tones remind me of strolling along Old Orchard Beach to the pier. The whites and blues are like the bright twinkling reflections of the sun on the ocean on a hot summer day.
This set will keep the sand in your toes (or your Sperry’s for a month). It’s a short necklace, so I can’t promise your daughter won’t steal it to wear with her Elsa costume this Halloween. As much as is terrifies me to acknowledge, these same summer tones are also the same as those cool winter ones of January snow. Pick your season, or pick both, and enjoy!
