As I write to you, the sun is pouring down a pleasant 70 degrees and the pollen has started to dust my car from black to gold. Strangely, I’m ok with a few extra trips to the car wash…so long as the flowers bloom in my front yard and the allergy medicines remain stocked in our pantry!

With the can’t-come-soon-enough warm weather, I still reach for the classic black shirt and denim jeans for a casual night out. That said, the recent rays of sunshine have me spending extra time prepping for a dinner with friends – digging through dresser drawers and mulling over my jewelry case for a certain pop of pizazz. 

To brighten up your wardrobe, I’ve selected a few of my favorites from National’s spring selections! 

Block the sun without losing color in the new Sun’n’ Sand Rollaway Sun Hat. The perfect packable option for your afternoon on the beach or a comfortable and light weight option for a day of gardening, add this accessory to your afternoon wardrobe.



Available in three perfectly sunny colors, the Capri Beaded Necklace is a lightweight statement piece suitable for a casual look (think my favorite jeans and t-shirt combination) or a dressier evening out (the little black dress, perhaps).

A pop of color in a jar! The Fresh Fashion Scarf comes in a variety of colors and is the ideal weight for your summer wardrobe.


And just in case that rain creeps in on your sunny day? Chase it away with this bright and cheerful Packable Umbrella!


Cheers to the sunshine,
