Spring is here – if not in the weather, at least in your style! Even with the rain, chills and snow, we’re welcoming the new season with our wardrobes, one style find at a time. Leading the Spring-Has-Sprung parade is our own Lauren Haslett who hunted out one great bouquet find at her local Goodwill. Introducing this week’s Goodwill Gem: Spring Fling Stackables!
Bloom your way into Spring! A bright gold, flower-covered bangle like this lovely, crystal-studded bracelet, is super feminine and appropriate for the season. It will instantly add a touch of girly charm to any outfit, and put you in the mood to appreciate the spring weather and sunshine all around you – or at least, push you to dream longingly of the warm sun and flowers that should arrive any day now.
The big gold flowers, their petals brought together by huge, seriously shimmering rhinestones at the center, are strung together by smaller, simpler gold beads to create a piece that’s stretchy, comfortable, and infinitely wearable. Easy to slide on as you run out the door, the beaded elastic band can be looped around the wrist multiple times to create that trendy, stacked look on the wrist with this one versatile piece.
The brilliant shiny gold and crystals of this bracelet will brighten up any look for spring – pair it will basic solid separates for an instant lift, or with colorful, floral print pieces for added oomph and emphasis on that traditional springtime motif.
Here, I’ve paired it with a light, airy dress in a vivid purple for an effortlessly pretty and cool, can’t miss ensemble that can easily be dressed up or down. With functional flats and cozy knit cardigan (and maybe a waist-cinching belt), it’s perfect for the office, but with a tailored blazed and heels, it becomes an elegant going out ensemble. And of course, topped off with a simple pair of beaded sandals, it’s the ideal fresh and flowy summer look.
