Last Days of Summer

Tomorrow is my birthday, and it's always a little bitter sweet for me. 
I enjoy the celebrations, but it also reminds me that Summer is sadly fading away.

When I was a child, it meant that I'd be starting school the following week
and that my days at the beach were coming to an end.

Inspired by what this week has meant for me for nearly half a century,
I've created this set on Polyvore, to go with my earrings

I just LOVE this dress, don't you?

Boho Beach

The earrings I've made are simple 'stick' earrings with mixed metal
and features a pair of gorgeous 'blue jeans' color Topaz gemstones:

I wanted to capture the simplicity and breezy airy feeling of the beach,
and some of the geometric lines found in the dress and sandals.

The gorgeous slightly muted blue shade of these faceted Topaz gemstones
captures the sun and some of the colors in the sundress :)

I think that mixing metals is my favorite thing to do... 
You can find these earrings on my website.

Enjoy the end of Summer while it lasts!
