The Perfect Beach Stacks

May 2, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

Ah, summer is back and live in action! We can’t wait to hit the beaches and bask in the summer sun! Who else is ready for school to be officially over? Relaxing in the sand is something I never get tired of. I am always, always wearing a beachy wrist and I am here today to share a few of my FAVORITE stacks and bracelets. Follow along as I guide you with the perfect beach wrists.

Firstly, what better bracelet to wear than the wave? This one is my all time favorite especially for this time of year. Wear it alone, together or stack with others.

Here are a few other bracelets and charms that I LOVE pairing with the wave bracelets.

Moving right along, the mini anchors are always a classic pick! Nothing says “beach babe” more than this super cute charm! My favorite color it comes in is the seafoam green.

Okay, so maybe I wear too much blue? But who doesn’t in the summer months? Here, I’m wearing my favorite original bracelet.

Last but not least! You guys always ask what my favorite bracelets are. Well here you have it! The Gold Hammered Flat Bar Cream + the Seed Bead Blush.

Find them in the Coco Ho Pack!

DIY Sweatshirt

We are all about latest trends, but we’re also all about taking those trends and making it our own. Today we will show you how to take a plain ol’ sweatshirt and spice it up to create a whole new look.

What you’ll need:

-An old sweater and sweatshirt

-Scissors and a razor blade

Start by cutting around the neck of the shirt.

Take a white pencil and trace what you want your neckline to look like. We are cutting a deep V in ours.

Next, cut along the white line you drew.

Step one is done! Now off to step two. We are now going to cut slits in the shirt. Be intentional about where you choose to cut the holes. You don’t want to add too many.

Go in with a razor blade and gently take it across the fabric to create frays. Do this on the cut outs and wherever else you want.

We love being creative when getting ready in the morning. Anyone else out there?! What you put on your back can say a lot about who you are and what your interests involve! And the best part is that you can be whoever you want. But what’s even more crucial to your everyday look, are the accessories you rock! We’re gonna put an indie spin on our bracelets this time. Because hey, you get to choose who you are today! Kill the look with any bracelet, any time.

 

We went to the most beautiful little island. How could you resist that baby blue fringe along the white sand and crystal water?

We layered a beaded choker with a longer beaded necklace for the perfect pairing with the bracelets for this look.

What’s the finishing touch you may ask? Your beach hat– duh! Hats can be a great extra accessory to top it all off. 😉
