Soak up the sun this summer in Pura Vida!  We love these bright and flirty styles!

“These were taken at Cardiff near the cliffs.  It’s one of my favorite spots for all things fun in the sun!  I wanted the photos to be beachy, playful, and care-free especially for a SoCal summer.  I just happened to stumble across the purple flowers.  The color was so rad and insanely vibrant!  I’m actually the model in these photos.  They were done for my blog Braided Bliss; fashion blog featuring causes and organizations to help raise awareness.” – Ansley

A Summer’s Day with photographer Patrick Gray!!!

“I chose my models Jillian and Marissa because they are the cutest pair of friends you will ever see.  They have the absolute best time whenever I shoot them together.  I was mostly thinking about getting the right kinds of shots, that would show off the bracelets vibrant colors to the fullest.  Also, I wanted to capture images that made people want to purchase the product rather than just focusing on the quality of the picture.  I wanted a warmth to the shoot that focused on having a great time with your friend, while also adding in great summer vibes everyone is craving.  If I would have to name the shoot it would be something along the lines of, “A Summer’s Day”.  The shoot was nothing glamorous, but instead a casual yet cute take on an average summer day with your best friend.  I’ve always loved this backyard because of the large space and variety of places there are to shoot.  From the rose garden, to the copper tiled pool, there are bright colors everywhere that scream summer and good times.” -Patrick

Summer Flare Photoshoot with photographer Carley Slater!!

“When I was thinking up this shoot, I knew I wanted sunshine, water and all things summer.  When I think of the Pura Vida brand….the first thing that comes to my mind is ‘living free’.  No restrictions and anything goes.  Anyone can wear the brand in any environment.  I just really wanted to capture that free spirit style that I love and try to show some different setups that might describe that.  Living in the midwest…we don’t have the ocean, but we get the benefit of many lakes and country.  So I wanted to portray that in the shoot as much as I could.  Gorgeous water with trees and fields.  The model I chose is actually my younger sister.  The reason I chose her is because she is the market for Pura Vida.  She is beautiful and real.  I captured her as she is and that’s what I wanted.  A real girl wearing a product that she really loves and uses.  She even snapped a few of me at the end too!  We had so much fun!” – Carley

Adventure in style this summer with Pura Vida.  We love our solid and original styles mixed together.  They look great with just about every style imaginable.  The color options are endless!  They also look perfect in combination with our beanie collection.  Pura Vida beanies come in many different colors, to match perfectly with all your outfits.  We are obsessing over the Teal Beanie paired with jeans and a basic tee.  It’s simple, yet adds a pop of color to the whole look!  We also love the Heather Blue Beanie matched with jeans and a flannel.  It’s just right for those colder evenings.  The look is stunning mixed with pinks, purples, and blues.

Live free with Pura Vida!  What makes you happy?  Happiness is key to living a healthy lifestyle.  Here are 5 ways to live free and happy this summer-

1. Enjoy the outdoors- Get out and get moving!  Try taking an early morning stroll along the beach.  Or explore your local farmers market.  Anything to get out and enjoy the sunshine.

2. Eat healthy- Eating healthy can be both fun and rewarding.  Fruit is the perfect snack for those hot summer days.  Slice up a watermelon and bring it along on the go.

3. Be creative- Do something creative!!  Try a new DIY project.  Pinterest is a great source and is home to thousands of DIY projects.  Painting is also a great creative outlet.  Try breaking out those watercolors you’ve had stashed away.

4. Become one with your surroundings- Slow down your pace and enjoy the flowers you pass by everyday.  It’s amazing what we miss while in a hurry.

5. Good company- Spend your time in good company.  What’s better then having your good friends by your side?
