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

Photographer: Sara Gatlin

Insta: @sgat“For this shoot I really wanted to showcase the carefree and happy energy Pura Vida gives off.  When I looked for a model, I wanted to work with someone who could be silly and just let loose and Avery was perfect!  The theme I was going for is more of a vibe.  I just wanted to depict those Summer days, where you are hanging with your friends, going on adventures, taking silly photos, drinking sodas, etc.!  I think the location of a photoshoot is one of the main factors that contribute to the vibe you’re going for, which is why I chose to shoot in Midtown.  Midtown is known for it’s artist and “march-to-the-beat-of-your-own-drum” atmosphere, so I immediately knew it would be perfect for shooting with Pura Vida!” – Sara Gatlin

This weeks Wanderlust Wednesday is inspired by our Life In Color Original, not so much the concert but the cities that are brought to life by the color they manifest. There’s so much beauty in color, besides the different hues, but that it brings anything it touches to life and it’s universal. Let’s agree that we always need a little more color in our life, the more color the better! Hopefully these colorful neighborhoods will inspire you to bring more color into your home.

1. Cinque Terre, Italy

2. Caminito, Buenos Aires

3. Wroclaw, Poland

4. Santa Maria, Rio De Janeiro

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.

Check out some of our favorite collections before they sell out!! Pura Vida Beanies, Original Collection, Solid Collection.

The Importance Of Laughter

“A smile is the curve that sets everything straight”.

Smiles are contagious.  A smile can make an impact and completely change someones day.  Smiles lead to laughter and laughter leads to happiness.  Laughter is the best medicine for the mind, body, and soul.  It’s great for stress relief, anxiety, and overall mood.  Laughter attracts us to one another.  It helps bring people together.  Which in return helps us build stronger relationships.

We believe laughter and happiness go hand in hand.  Happiness is the key to living a successful life.  What makes you happy?

Styles shown above; Silver Feather Collection, Flat Braided, Platinum Collection, Braided Collection, Gold Cross Collection, Silver 3 Circle Collection.
