Welcome to another Bloggers do it Better challenge courtesy of Pretty Shiny Sparkly. Each challenge showcases real women rocking a current trend. This time it’s arm candy. I like jewelry but I usually subscribe to a less-is-more approach. Big earrings or a necklace. A cocktail ring or a bracelet. Turns out that sometimes more is more. If it weren’t for this challenge I never would have tried wearing all this bling at the same time.
Shorts: Calvin Klein
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Ring: Old Navy
The bracelets are from all over the country. I chose them for the combination of colors but they also represent three of the last four trips I’ve taken. They are (from wrist to elbow): silver cubes, a boutique in Portland; turquoise strand, a street vendor in Santa Fe; olive glass beads, a street vendor in Pittsburgh; icy blue quartz, another vendor in Santa Fe.
My outfit was so casual but wearing an armload of bracelets made things seem a bit dressier, or at least more deliberate. I never knew that stacking bracelets would create a cuff-type effect. It’s a great way to remix and reuse the jewelry I already have.
