I also started looking through my pictures and found plenty of arm party inspiration shots that I've already worn in the past few months. So instead of creating a whole new look for the BDIB challenge, I decided to just gather up the best of the best for a little look at all the ways I've been having an arm party lately. What is an arm party you ask? Really it's just the idea of throwing on a stack of bracelets, sometimes worn with your watch to create a multilayer, textured way of accessorizing. So here we go...
glitz up the camo. All bracelets from Forever 21 and watch by Michelle.
first bracelet tutorial pieces that I love so much! Just a simple stack of satin and sequins wrapped bangles add instant glam to any look, and is a fun juxtaposition to the masculine camo.
Another fun tutorial, this friendship bracelet was inspired by the ones I have from Forever 21. Surprisingly, I got almost as many comments on my nail polish as I did on my tutorial (polish is Mermaid's Tears btw from OPI :)EBEW lace challenge look last month. Bracelets are a mix of Stella & Dot, DIY by me, Forever 21 and J. Crew. Watch is by Michael Kors
Simple look for a very preppy and casual outfit. Sometimes you have to know when to hold back a little on the arm party, and this look was definitely one to go easy on.
arm party simple here to highlight the fun brightly colored shorts, so I just added my leather wrap cuff from J. Crew and my gold Stella & Dot chain link bracelet. The gold Michael Kors watch is chunky and heavy, so you have to keep functionality in mind when getting ready for your arm party.
The best thing to do when assembling your arm party is to just have fun. If you're feeling adventurous and your day allows your arm to be a little more weighted down, add a few more bracelets. But if you start to feel ridiculous and are afraid you'll never be able to get through the day taking care of kids and/or work, minimize the look. It's all about making it your own.
So with that, I'm off to take some shots of the bracelets I have in store for you tomorrow. They are all cheap to make, and can be made in a matter of MINUTES! I'm so excited!! Have a great day everyone. BTW, I'm also linking up to Lindsey's WIWW!
P.S. If my over use of !!! and positive attitude starts to annoy you, go ahead and tell me. I'm a big girl, I can take it ;)
