One of the most popular colors of this summer was cobalt blue, a cool, deep shade that conjures up images of the ocean. Now summer may be drawing to a close, but this sapphire-tinted hue is set to be one of the hottest colors for fall as well. Multiple designers had cobalt shoes, dresses, and accessories on their Fall 2012 runways, but you don’t have to be able to afford designer threads to jump on this trend. Clothing racks at the mall are already filled with cobalt blue pieces that you can incorporate into your summer-to-fall wardrobe — here are a few affordable picks for just $20 or less!

There’s something I’ve always loved about wood details for clothes and accessories. It adds a natural, bohemian feel to any look that is perfect for the summertime. Not only do dark wood details go great with summer brights, but they also pair nicely with the darker and muted shades you see in fall. Plus, I love how wood’s heaviness makes it a statement on its own, so you don’t need many other accessories! And the best thing about wood? It’s inexpensive!

I used to hate being pale. I desperately envied the girls who came back from spring break with perfect, even tans. My skin burns incredibly easily, so unless I cake on bottles and bottles of sunscreen, I end up the color of a boiled lobster. I mean really, really red. Fire engine, ripe tomato red. Eventually, my sunburns fade into tans, but that takes weeks, and my “tan” is pretty pale by most people’s standards.
After years of lamenting my pasty state, I finally realized: I’m never going to be tan! My skin has always been and will always be pale. Baby, I was born this way.

Skin cancer. Yes, this one is obvious.
