Bring back color! The weather might be swinging up and down at a moment’s notice, but in my mind, it’s still (almost) time for spring.
My Goodwill-sourced gem for this week is a fun, fabulous stack of brightly colored bracelets that’s perfect for taking any girl straight from the depressing “blahs” of the end of the winter straight into the Spring season. They’re simple plastic bangles, but the vibrant colors (with one anchoring piece in black) will instantly lift up any look. Because the wavy shape of each bracelet lines up easily with the next, these darling arm decorations are easy to stack one on top of another – wear a single bangle for a simple statement, or wear a bunch for a more eclectic, modern take on a bohemian look.
There’s nothing like a little neon to brighten your mood and put a real spring in your step!
Put some sunshine into your daily life. When it seems like Spring will never come, the incessant grayness and biting cold can really start to get to you. But with a funky, cool accessory like one of these vividly colored neon bracelets – or the whole stack – even the simplest look becomes fresher and more fun. Here, I’ve chosen an outfit that’s about as basic as it gets, but that can easily be amped up with a few well-chosen accessories, like the fun bracelets I came across this week at my local Goodwill shop. A few layered tanks are an easy, laid-back centerpiece to this look. One in a classic, bright white and, just peeking out from underneath, a neon pink that will coordinate perfectly with my cool new arm candy. A fitted, yet stretchy, and super flattering pair of jeans are all that’s needed on the bottom, and a soft, slate –gray hoodie on top will keep me warm and cozy, even with an early spring chill in the air. It doesn’t get any easier than this, and yet, with the brightly colored punch of a few of these newly found bangles on my wrist, this simple look gets instantly upgraded from basic to coolly relaxed and chicly casual.
These playful, vibrant bangles are an effortless way to add a fun, light-hearted feel to any casual ensemble.
