Time to bring back the Friendship bracelets

Friendship Bracelets



Back in October at my bachelorette weekend in Puerto Vallarta, my friends bought old school friendship bracelets for everyone's gift bag.

... If you grew up in the 80's then you know what bracelets I am talking about....

We then all added to look with custom friendship bracelets from the guys selling Mexican "authentic" goods on the beach. We all loved the look and was constantly ordering more on the beach from the guys and adding to our bangle friendship bracelet look. 

 





I was online shopping for new bangles and bracelets to add to my arm candy collection and stumbled upon Miansai rope bracelets.... aka old school friendship bracelets with adorable charms as clasps. I can't wait to get my hands on one and mix and match with all my other bangles.

Why I Love Distressed Jeans

I spend most of my days in distressed jeans. I love them for day, for night and really think they can work for everyday occasions quite nicely.  Considering I work from home and not in a corporate office I can say this more easily then the average 9-5 corp gal. But I really do think it can work in other types of industries.

Whether they are skinny, slouchy, boyfriend cut doesn't really matter most of these looks will work with them.

Keep in mind that if you are wearing slouchy or boyfriend cut keep it more fitted on top and the reverse for the skinny style with looser top. Always great with pumps, pointed flats, wedge sneakers, or booties. I do think it is important to actually finish the look with a motorcycle inspired jacket, blazer (reg. fit or oversized) to keep it more on the polished and put together side.  Really you can have fun with this look!

Just because your jeans looked really lived in doesn't mean you can't look put together overall.

This is a great day outfit for me I would totally wear this on a work day and continue wearing this into happy hour and meeting the hubby for dinner out. 

It would also be great for a more low-key date night on the week day or those dates that go from late afternoon into the evening hours. You never want to look to over done during the late afternoons and this will have you looking effortless chic into the evening.

Must Have: Midi Skirt

I am so inspired by these street style images of midi-skirt outfits.The midi skirt creates a throwback silhouette with the flare and volume. 

I love it styled ....

high-waisted with a more masculine cut crop top,

featured in girlie color like pink or pastel with a more masculine and harsh cut-out or lace up bootie,

or just a slimming top to balance on the volume on the bottom.
