These hoops are fun. They look kind of fruity, with their dangly cluster of bright orange beads. You know, sort of Chiquita Banana chic. But don't walk around with a bowl of fruit on your head, though. Because that's just weird.

Here's a flower ring with some bling. Each petal is a faceted rhinestone. This ring, which is one-inch in diameter, looks about the same color as a lemon Lifesaver. (If only it tasted as good!) It also comes in five other candy-like colors.

The ruby-red quartz briolets that dangle from these 14-karat gold-plated earrings remind me of little tart pomegranate seeds. They're such a juicy, summery color. The earrings are a little less than two inches long.
After visiting Hawaii, I became obsessed with plumeria flowers. They smell so good, but I can't find them where I live. (I'd order one of these if I thought I could take care of it.) This sweet necklace from Kahili Creations of Hawaii has a plumeria pendant made out of carved shell. It hangs from a 16.5-inch chain decorated with tiny sapphire and aquamarine beads.
These earrings from Bella-Bijou are so pretty. They're made of blue chalcedony and goldfill wire and hoops. And at three inches long, they're nice and dangly. They're pretty versitile too. You could wear them with jeans and a T-shirt or pair them with a little black dress.
I like this little makeup bag. It has a fun, retro flower pattern. And it's sort of small--nine inches by four inches. So you can toss in a couple of essentials (lipgloss, some mascara, a little eyeshadow, a compact, and concealer) and fit it into almost any purse.
These earrings are so bright and cheery. They're a little more than three inches long, so they can add a huge pop of color to your outfit. They'd look nice and beachy if you wore them with sandals and some white linen pants or a long, flowy broomstick skirt.

I saw this on InStyle.com the other day. It's the cutest way to protect your 'do from the elements that I've ever seen. It's made of white weather-resistant cotton, with either green or black patent leather trim. Granted, it costs a lot more than a kitschy plastic kerchief, but it's got some serious glam.
When you feel like going out dancing with your friends, throw on these three-inch chandelier earrings. They're dramatic enough to match your out-on-the-town dramatic eyeshadow, but not so loud that they take away from your awesome dance moves. Plus, they jangle and catch the light as you bop to the music.

This little necklace is simple and beautiful. I love the way the milky, opalescent moonstone pendant almost seems to glow from within. It comes on an 18-inch sterling silver chain with an oversize clasp that makes it easy to slip on and off without assistance.
$52.00, A Pretty Rock
