Well, we’re officially in the dog days of summer. Traditionally from July 3rd – August 11th, it’s name comes from Greek and Roman astrologers who saw the rising star Sirius, the “Dog star”, join the sun in the sky. It was believed that this period brings bad luck, storms, monsoons, and lethargy.
While I’m not sure of the accuracy of this old belief, I can certainly understand summertime blues. When the days are long and slow, and the sweltering heat never seem to end, it’s easy to feel low energy.
Despite all the superstition, I love all shades of summertime, especially blues. There is something so cool about denim and indigo in the sunshine. These warm July days are longing for some balance!
Embrace the chiller side of summer with some of my cool toned, blue-accented jewelry.
My Storm earrings on blue onyx are elegant, simple, and perfect for all day wear. Versatile enough to wear with your favorite pair of blue jeans or a little blue dress.
There’s something so captivating about summer storms. This Lariat necklace with blue onyx from my MONSOON collection hangs on a lovely strand of little pearls with faceted blue onyx at the drop point. This necklace has a 2 inch extender, so it can be worn with a variety of necklines.
The dog days of summer will be over soon! Let’s be thankful for another trip around this hot, hot sun. I’ll be avoiding the AZ sun as much as I can and seeking shade, preferably indoor and air-conditioned!
Here’s hoping any summer blues you encounter are temporary and fashion forward.
