Currently Obsessing Over…….OPALS

Screen Shot 2015 07 08 at 8.34.16 PM Currently Obsessing Over.......OPALS

 

Ever since I was a young girl, I have been absolutely obsessed with opals.  I think it’s the numerous colors inside the stone that seem to shoot out like beams of light in every direction. Opals remind me of the universe, caught inside a small bubble.  There is definitely something mystical and mysterious about opals, and that’s exactly what draws me to them. It’s for this reason that I am loving all the opal jewelry that I’ve been seeing lately.  From delicate stacking rings, to stud earrings, and to larger statement rings and necklaces, opals seem to be everywhere lately.  (or maybe I am just looking for them! lol)  Above are some of my picks for delicate opal jewelry. In my opinion, Wwake is doing the best job of creating gorgeous, special, understated opal jewelry that showcases the beauty of opal, without being too “over the top.” It’s perfect for daily wear.   The designs on these pieces are amazing.  They’re  great for daily wear, the beach, and nights out! Links to everything below!

CURRENTLY CRAVING: ARM CANDY

For those who know me, they know that I love nothing more then “arm candy”. I love bracelets. I love stacking bracelets. I love stacking bracelets on top of bracelets……….You get the idea. 😉  There is no better way to dress up your look then to pile on some gorgeous accessories on your wrists.  And nowadays, the more the better! Is there an art to “stacking”? Um, I think so. I think you need to find that delicate balance between chic and overkill.  Personally I always pair some chain and spike bracelets with my watch. Other times, I wear a large cuff, and balance it out with delicate strand bracelets to offset it.  It’s up to you.  The thing I love about stacking bracelets is that you can totally make the look your own, and it’s a great way to update some old bracelets that you have had in your drawer for a while.  You can pair them with some new acquisitions and freshen up the look. For this post, I have listed some of the bracelets that I am currently CRAVING! All of these are great for layering and stacking. Let’s take a look! 😉 Links posted below for all bracelets shown above. xoxo

I love the way the crystals offset the tough spikes.  Girly and tough at the same time.  Added bonus, it’s double strands start you off nicely to layer with other bracelets!

2) CC Skye Love Spike Bracelet.  Buy it HERE. cc skye bracelet 152x300 CURRENTLY CRAVING: ARM CANDYThis is the the PUNK version of the Cartier love bracelet.  It’s chic, with an edge……my favorite.  CC Skye is one of my favorite jewelry brands.  The quality is AMAZING, and lasts forever. Definitely worth the investment. This piece is screaming to get layered. I own this gem….stay tuned for future posts with me styling it. 😉

4)Pave Pyramid Bangles. Buy them HERE. pyramid bangles 224x300 CURRENTLY CRAVING: ARM CANDYWhat do I love most about these gorgeous, sparkly, tri-color bangles?

It’s edgy and chic.  It’s great for layering, or wearing on it’s own and making a statement.  I love this white leather cuff with rose gold hardware for Summer.  It’s bright and stands out.

6) Fenton Crystal Sagamore Deco Chain bracelet.  Buy it HERE. crystal bracelet 180x300 CURRENTLY CRAVING: ARM CANDYWhat I love most about this breathtaking crystal bracelet is that it looks like it’s an estate piece.  I can imagine buying something like this in a vintage store, or at an estate sale.

Either way it’s a steal, because it’s ON SALE!! Grab it while you can! I picked one up for myself!
