SEPTEMBER - SAPPHIRE

SEPTEMBER - SAPPHIRE
The only difference between a Ruby and a Sapphire is simply the colour. The colour of a Sapphire is created by various amounts of iron and titanium in the stone, the combination of which produce varying colours. Whilst the most desirable colour Sapphire is blue, ( specifically a“cornflower blue’) they also come in violet, dark gray, orange, yellow, pink, green and black. These different coloured Sapphires are referred to as “fancy Sapphires” and are often less expensive than the blue ones, yet equally as beautiful, and a fine alternative to blue. 
A rare orange - pink coloured kind of Sapphire is called “Padparadscha,” which means “Lotus Flower” in Sinhalese, is very expensive and is the only colour Sapphire given its own name. Because Sapphires are available in so many colours, they are an incredibly versatile gemstone.

NOVEMBER - CHILLY BUT SUNNY

NOVEMBER - CHILLY BUT SUNNY
Before the 20th century, all gems in the brown, orange, and yellow colour range were called topaz. Modern gemology was only recognized as a science in the 1930s. Today we know that topaz and brown quartz are actually two different gemstones. Citrine  is less likely to be confused with Topaz today, but it does happen.

THE WHITE SHIRT

THE WHITE SHIRT

Ah, the white shirt. The workhorse of wardrobe staples. I find myself buying about 8 a year, wearing them out, and promptly replacing them the following year. That I love white is an understatement and the classic white button down pretty much goes with everything. Even though my "everything" seems to comprise of jeans largely.

Dress it up with heels, an unusual necklace, and a bold cuff.
