Summertime Pink

Scorching-hot temps have been gracing us with their presence over the last month, but the official start of summer is still a day away! Tomorrow—June 21—marks the first day of summer, and to be honest, we’re pretty pumped about it.

We’re huge fans of the relaxed vibes that go along with the summer months. Everything feels just a little more carefree and fun! This feeling carries over into our jewelry wardrobe, inspiring us to wear any colors that remind us of a tropical paradise.

One color we especially love in the summer is pink! Whether it reminds you of a prancing flamingo, a warm sunset over the ocean or even a tall glass of pink lemonade, summer is a great time to add some punches of pretty pink to your jewelry wardrobe!

As if the first day of summer wasn’t a good enough reason to wear pink, we’ve got an even better one for you! This Friday is National Pink Day. There’s a saying (dating all the way back to 2004!) that goes like this: “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” We would like to alter that saying slightly by changing it to, “On Wednesdays and every other day, we wear pink.”

We have plenty of jewelry art inspo that will have you feeling pretty in pink, too!
