This outfit truly felt like summer. Bold colors, pretty gold jewelry with pearl and embellished accents, a basket bag, and sandals. It all felt so warm and cheerful, which is what I love wearing in warm weather – clothes that make me happy.

There’s something so refreshing, enchanting, and soul soothing about stepping into the tropical climate, being surrounded by the sweetest bird songs, and lush, blooming flowers like red or yellow hibiscus and bright pink bougainvillea.
