Friday Favorites

As much as I love my versatile neutrals and earthy tones in the colder months, I can’t help but use summer as an excuse to really bring out the bright colors any chance I get. Whether it’s in a sunny cocktail, in my wardrobe, or in my home, a pop of color (or two colors, or three) seems to be an immediate mood-booster. With that as my inspiration this week, I was easily drawn to a few attention-grabbing favorites that I can’t wait to share with you…
