This spring and summer has been a blue and mint season for me! I love those two colors together, especially with gold. So I’ve collected a bit of arm candy in these colors, here’s what I’m sportin’ today.

Bracelet layering tips:
I’ve found that layering bracelets doesn’t always come out the way I want it to. Have you ever combined bracelets and found it looks kind of funky? (But not in good way.) Here are a couple combinations I’ve found that work.
#1 Combine colors in the same color family (i.e. mint & blue, coral & orange, etc.)
#2 Try some opposite colors if you have a relatively neutral outfit on. If you already have a lot of colors in your outfit, a ton of colorful bracelets will be overwhelming. However, if you have jeans and a gray, black, white t-shirt or something like that on, bright arm candy can really make your outfit pop! (i.e. coral & mint, blue & yellow, etc.)
#3 Pick one “metal” color. Combining silver and gold, or even rose gold and gold can be really tricky. It can be done in some instances, but for the most part stay with one metal accent color in your bracelets/watches.
#4 Experiment with different sizes, styles and textures of bracelets. Sometimes combining a braided boho bracelet with trendy metal bracelets really looks cool together. Also, mix up the sizes of the bracelets/watches on your wrist, it draws the eye in more than if they are all the same size. Today I went a little more chunky and large, but some days my bracelets are braided and small.
#5 Inexpensive vs. expensive. It’s good to have a couple pieces of jewelry/watches that will last for more than one season. So investing a bit more money in certain items is a do. The more expensive items can offset the trendy, inexpensive ones nicely. (i.e. my mom’s gold and diamond watch that I’m wearing). For the colorful trendy bracelets, I’d recommend not spending too much on them, there’s a good chance the really trendy colors and styles will go out within a couple seasons.
#6 Variety. Especially with the inexpensive, trendy, colorful bracelets. Stock up on different colors and styles so you can play around with them on your arm. Sometimes sets that are sold together actually look better broken up and paired with other things.
*Idea: Try having a bracelet trading party with your friends to get variety as well. You can bring in sets and trade/combine styles to get the look you want without having to buy a million sets at the store.
One last cool pic, my dead robot look…(or not so cool pic, lol)
Hope you liked this post! I will try and find some other websites to buy bracelets on and add that here in the next couple days. Later gators!
