Now that spring is here to stay, I’ve found myself eagerly searching my spring/summer closet for bright clothes. As much as I love the soft pale colors that are so prevalent in the winter, I love the freshness of vivid colors. Just look outside! Our property has transformed in just a couple of weeks with the virtual explosion of green. That’s our visual clue to reach for equally fresh items in our wardrobe.
I’m not sure about you, but I totally neglect about 90% of my fun jewelry in the fall and winter months. I can’t be bothered with rings because I am slathering on hand cream to combat the cold, dry weather. My necklaces and earrings are hidden behind turtleneck sweaters or scarves, and there’s no point in wearing them.
This brings me to the fact that our spring and summer clothes are the perfect backdrop for showcasing our jewelry! I suspect that you realize that the necklines of your lighter-weight clothes are more versatile than bulky winter sweaters. The style and shape of the necklines are more open, giving us many more options to play around with jewelry. Sleeves are another element that change dramatically this time of year which means it’s time for chunky bracelets.
