This may be one of the weirder summers on record, but all the more reason to embrace the nostalgic things that make us happy and feel like a kid again. I used to love making bracelets, anklets, and necklaces in the summertime, spending hours braiding string, sorting through the perfect shell beads and letter beads, and wearing them all summer long. I was so excited to see this trend coming back (with better construction then my homemade versions). I wear them with my everyday jewelry and mix different colors and textures. It adds playfulness to any look and a bit of color to simple neutrals. Since being home, I’m definitely searching for things that are uncomplicated and comfortable in my wardrobe. Most of these pieces are lightweight, and they’re easy to layer up and leave on all day. Here are some of my favorites.
