end of summer style

It’s hard to believe August is upon us! If only the winter months flew by as quickly. This means you must seize the day and be as colorful as you can before its time to take out the darker palette accessories. Here are my picks for the best August accessories:

Next stop: Morocco! I take off tonight from JFK and land tomorrow morning in Casablanca. I could not be more excited for 9 days exploring the amazing country. I’ll be posting lots of photos on instagram {@KatieBartels} and will be blogging up a storm when I return home to NYC.

Until then!
