August is such a weird month for shopping. I’m terribly excited about all knits and woolens, but I don’t want the warm weather to go away! I find myself scooping up deeply discounted dresses to wear these last weeks of summer (just ordered this one to try), while wish-listing beautiful fall items that are out of my price range (like this gorgeous coat). What I really need to do this month is cut myself off so that I can splurge in September on a piece I’ll wear throughout the season and well into winter.

Memorial Day (and, ahem, my birthday weekend) marks the unofficial start of summer. It often feels as if I’m constantly counting down to my favorite season so that I can break out my arsenal of summer dresses. But can you really fault me for that? Lightweight dresses are the perfect canvas for layering jewelry like these rings from www.MoonstoneShop.com. I’ve been a fan of moonstone for as long as I can remember, but it was solidified when I visited Moonstone Beach in California years ago and spent well over an hour sifting through stones on the beach to find the iridescent beauties. I had intended to have the stones I found polished and set in a ring, but let’s be honest, going straight to the source for genuine moonstone jewelry is so much easier! The shop carries an array of petite rings that are perfect for layering a few statement-making pieces to sprinkle into your collection. You can also find moonstone earrings, pendants, and bracelets.
