Spring fever? Nope, we have summer fever right about now.

I love this time of year when we have long peeled off our gray coats in favor of lighter fabrics and spring hues in anticipation of summer. Dusty rose clothing has made its way into our favorite boutiques and we have just the right jewels for it. The Kaelen slip dress below in metallic blush keeps you cool and on trend...pair it with our minimalist pearl choker for a clean minimal look. 

And then there is Michael Costello, the newcomer discovered on Project Runway who has me fawning over the asymmetrical ensemble pictured below. We think our 14K rose gold/ metallic pink pearl ring is simply icing on the cake.

So...your friend is having an outdoor wedding, what do you wear? Cushnie et Ochs' silk crepe dress below is nothing short of stunning. Pair it with our And Diamond Makes 12 necklace for a flawless, elegantly modern look.

And yes, all of these jewels will rock with your summer denim and whites too!
